Toyota Motor Corporation announces that it has developed a new generation of vehicles with an advanced driving support system.
The system, called AHDA (Automated Highway Driving Assist) aims to reduce the workload and concentration for drivers on the motorway: while driving, it activates a "cooperative-adaptive" driving control that communicates with the vehicle in front and with the one following to manage the safety distance in an optimal way .
The company is still focused on offering control and “driving fun” to the driver: such a system is therefore a tool that can be switched on and off as desired when you want to drive more confidently on the motorway. In other words, the car will drive "almost alone" only when required.
AHDA will be marketed on the automaker's vehicles by the end of 2015 with an entire suite of tools to support safe driving.
As often happens, cutting-edge technological solutions "force" their introduction when there are pressing problems and high demand: in this case, the increase in the average age of drivers expected in the coming years will increasingly present the problem of guaranteeing safety to road transport and the lower number of accidents.
The new technological tools will therefore ensure greater stability to the entire driving process, and later (perhaps) a decongestion of traffic with a reduction in waste and pollution.
