Toyota has a pre-crash system that will steer the car away to a point to minimize the impact of a crash and most likely the Prius will be one of the first to get this technology.

Would you want this technology in your Prius?

this is a better explanation of the pre-crash system:
Toyota is working on a new pre-crash system that will actually take control and steer the vehicle to minimize impact in the event of an unavoidable collision. The system combines super-sensitive radar with a camera array in the front fascia to detect possible impacts. On-board computers then calculate the correct levels of braking and steering required to avoid the crash, and if the driver fails to act, the automatic system takes over.

I agree computers can never i believe judge a real situation unless they take everything that is happening at every second and predict peoples movements as well. I would never trust a computer controlling where i crash unless all cars interact with each other.

the day all cars interact with each other will be the day I can trust a computers "judgement", but that's like 20-30+ years down the road when we will have flying cars like the Jetsons lol




Question:

What happens if your in the middle lane and the pre-crash system detects a collision, but both lanes on each side have cars, does the system engage the brakes and stop?

Say if there's sensors around the car for the pre-crash tech wouldn't we have to make sure the sensors are clean? This can be bothersome

I remember driving a friend's BMW with back up sensors, the sensors got dirty and made the system think it was hitting something lol
