Road Sign Assist
RAV4's Road Sign Assist (RSA) helps keep you informed. Using a forward-facing intelligent camera, Road Sign Assist is designed to detect speed limit signs, stop signs and yield signs, and displays them on the Multi-Information Display (MID).
Lane Tracing Assist
When the available Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) is enabled and lane markers are detectable, Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) uses the lines on the road and preceding vehicles to help keep the vehicle centered while also displaying the vehicle’s position on the Multi-Information Display (MID) screen. The system was designed to reduce driver strain and increase convenience, and may benefit drivers most during traffic jams—but can be turned off using the MID.
Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
RAV4’s Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) helps keep the road safe by detecting a pedestrian under certain daytime conditions. If the system determines that the possibility of frontal collision with a pedestrian is high, it prompts the driver to take evasive action and brake by using an audio/visual alert. If the driver reacts and brakes, the system may use Brake Assist (BA) to provide additional brake force. If the driver doesn't react and brake and the system determines that the risk of collision is high, the system may automatically apply the brakes, reducing speed to help mitigate the impact or avoid the collision entirely, if possible.
Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
Intended for highway use and similar to “constant speed” cruise control, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) lets you drive at a preset speed. DRCC uses vehicle-to-vehicle distance control, which is designed to adjust your speed, to help you maintain a preset distance from vehicles ahead of you that are driving at a slower speed. DRCC uses a front-grille-mounted radar and an in-vehicle camera designed to detect vehicles and their distance. If a driver is traveling slower than you, or within your preset range, DRCC is designed to automatically slow your vehicle down without deactivating cruise control. If DRCC determines you need to slow down more, an audio and visual alert notifies you and brakes may be applied. When there’s no longer a vehicle driving slower than your preset speed in front of you, DRCC will then accelerate and regular cruise control will resume.
Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
By detecting visible lane markings or using Road Edge Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) issues both an audible alert and visual warning on the Multi-Information Display (MID) screen if an inadvertent lane departure is detected. If the system determines that the driver is not taking corrective steering action, the Steering Assist function is designed to initiate and provide gentle corrective steering to help keep RAV4 in the lane.
Automatic High Beams
RAV4’s Automatic High Beams (AHB) are a safety system designed to help you see more clearly at night—without distracting other drivers. Designed to activate at speeds above 25 mph, AHB rely on an in-vehicle camera to help detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles, then automatically toggle between high and low beams accordingly to provide the appropriate amount of light. By using high beams more frequently, the system may allow earlier detection of pedestrians and obstacles.
