ES 2018 Safety AHS (Adaptive High-beam System)

The system detects the headlamps of oncoming vehicles, tail lamps of preceding vehicles, and brightness of the surrounding area. When it detects a vehicle within the area illuminated by the high beams, it disables/enables 24 LEDs on each side to minutely adjust the lit and unlit areas, optimizing light distribution. By partially blocking light from the high-beam headlamps so that they don’t directly project onto a preceding or oncoming vehicle, the system helps contribute to safe driving at night.

ES 2018 Safety LTA (Lane Tracing Assist)

While driving on highways and freeways, and on roads without white or yellow edge lines, LTA alerts the driver of possible lane or road deviations and helps assist steering to avoid them. If it determines the vehicle may deviate from the lane on a sharp curve or in other circumstances, it displays a caution and encourages appropriate steering inputs. In addition, when Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (with full speed range) is activated, it helps assist steering to avoid lane departure.

ES 2018 Safety Pre-Collision System

When the millimeter-wave radar and monocular camera sensors detect a vehicle ahead, a pedestrian during the day or at night, or a cyclist during the day*1 and determine that a collision is likely, it alerts the driver and activates pre-collision brake assist when the driver depresses the brake pedal. If the driver cannot depress the brake pedal, it activates the pre-collision brakes to help avoid a collision or mitigate the impact force.

Ls 2017_Safety_Large color head-up display

The system helps the driver intuitively understand warnings and take action to avoid potential hazards with animations and information projected on the large 24-inch (600x150mm) display. The screen is divided into different areas to effectively bring information to the driver’s attention including cautions and warnings, driving support, road signs, vehicle speed, navigation and other information.
