Toyota has revealed a look at the autonomous backup system that could soon assist drivers to prevent car accidents.
The firm kicked off its CES presentation on Monday with a visual re-enactment of a recent three-car accident in California that it claims could have been avoided with its Toyota Guardian technology.
According to Toyota, Guardian is designed to ‘amplify human control of the vehicle, not replace it.’
This means it can identify potential incidents and alert the driver – or make its own corrective response when necessary.
‘We all have a moral obligation to apply automated vehicle technology to save as many lives as possible, as soon as possible,’ said Dr. Gill Pratt, TRI CEO and Toyota Motor Corporation Fellow during the press conference in Las Vegas.
