At Toyota Collaborative Safety Research Center (CSRC), we have one core philosophy behind our research - everyone deserves to be safe. We want to enhance safety for all drivers, passengers and pedestrians on our roads -- not just in relation to Toyota vehicles, but rather advance safety in all vehicles.
By taking a collaborative approach and leveraging key partnerships with top academic, medical and research institutions along with government agencies, we are advancing safety systems across the industry at an accelerated rate as we look to build this safer future.
Measure the response characteristics and estimated benefit with respect to reduction in injury/fatalities of adaptive headlamp system that highlights detected pedestrians and bicyclists using both driver and pedestrian/bicycle simulator study.
By analyzing over 25,000 high resolution images available on Google Street View across the country, we were able to determine that grass, metal guardrail, concrete divider and curbs are the most common roadside boundary objects.
Estimate the Residual Safety Problem after Integrated Safety Systems (ISS) is deployed in the future. ISS consists of all active (auto braking for vehicle, pedestrian, bicyclist, lane keeping, etc.) and passive safety systems (advanced airbag, curtain shield airbag, roof strength, pedestrian protection active hood, etc.).
