Toyota CH-R Owners Manual: PCS (Pre-Collision System)

The pre-collision system uses a radar sensor and camera sensor to detect vehicles and pedestrians in front of your vehicle.

When the system determines that the possibility of a frontal collision with a vehicle or pedestrian is high, a warning operates to urge the driver to take evasive action and the potential brake pressure is increased to help the driver avoid the collision. If the system determines that the possibility of a frontal collision with a vehicle or pedestrian is extremely high, the brakes are automatically applied to help avoid the collision or help reduce the impact of the collision.

The pre-collision system can be disabled/enabled and the warning timing can be changed.

Pre-collision warning

When the system determines that the possibility of a frontal collision is high, a buzzer will sound and a warning message will be displayed on the multi-information display to urge the driver to take evasive action.

Pre-collision brake assist

When the system determines that the possibility of a frontal collision is high, the system applies greater braking force in relation to how strongly the brake pedal is depressed.

Pre-collision braking

When the system determines that the possibility of a frontal collision is high, the system warns the driver. If the system determines that the possibility of a frontal collision is extremely high, the brakes are automatically applied to help avoid the collision or reduce the collision speed.

WARNING

■Limitations of the pre-collision system

  • The driver is solely responsible for safe driving. Always drive safely, taking care to observe your surroundings.

    Do not use the pre-collision system instead of normal braking operations under any circumstances. This system will not prevent collisions or lessen collision damage or injury in every situation. Do not overly rely on this system.

    Failure to do so may lead to an accident, resulting in death or serious injury.

  • Although this system is designed to help avoid a collision or help reduce the impact of the collision, its effectiveness may change according to various conditions, therefore the system may not always be able to achieve the same level of performance.

    Read the following conditions carefully. Do not overly rely on this system and always drive carefully.

    • Conditions under which the system may operate even if there is no possibility of a collision
    • Conditions under which the system may not operate properly
  • Do not attempt to test the operation of the pre-collision system yourself, as the system may not operate properly, possibly leading to an accident.

■Pre-collision braking

  • When the pre-collision braking function is operating, a large amount of braking force will be applied.
  • If the vehicle is stopped by the operation of the pre-collision braking function, the pre-collision braking function operation will be canceled after approximately 2 seconds. Depress the brake pedal as necessary.
  • The pre-collision braking function may not operate if certain operations are performed by the driver. If the accelerator pedal is being depressed strongly or the steering wheel is being turned, the system may determine that the driver is taking evasive action and possibly prevent the pre-collision braking function from operating.
  • In some situations, while the pre-collision braking function is operating, operation of the function may be canceled if the accelerator pedal is depressed strongly or the steering wheel is turned and the system determines that the driver is taking evasive action.
  • If the brake pedal is being depressed, the system may determine that the driver is taking evasive action and possibly delay the operation timing of the pre-collision braking function.

 

WARNING

■When to disable the pre-collision system In the following situations, disable the system, as it may not operate properly, possibly leading to an accident resulting in death or serious injury:

  • When the vehicle is being towed
  • When your vehicle is towing another vehicle
  • When transporting the vehicle via truck, boat, train or similar means of transportation
  • When the vehicle is raised on a lift with the engine running and the tires are allowed to rotate freely
  • When inspecting the vehicle using a drum tester such as a chassis dynamometer or speedometer tester, or when using an on vehicle wheel balancer
  • When a strong impact is applied to the front bumper or front grille, due to an accident or other reasons
  • If the vehicle cannot be driven in a stable manner, such as when the vehicle has been in an accident or is malfunctioning
  • When the vehicle is driven in a sporty manner or off-road
  • When the tires are not properly inflated
  • When the tires are very worn
  • When tires of a size other than specified are installed
  • When tire chains are installed
  • When a compact spare tire or an emergency tire puncture repair kit is used
  • If equipment (snow plow, etc.) that may obstruct the radar sensor or camera sensor is temporarily installed to the vehicle

■Operational conditions The pre-collision system is enabled and the system determines that the possibility of a frontal collision with a vehicle or pedestrian is high.

Each function is operational at the following speeds:

  • Pre-collision warning:
    • Vehicle speed is between approximately 7 and 110 mph (10 and 180 km/h).

      (For detecting a pedestrian, vehicle speed is between approximately 7 and 50 mph [10 and 80 km/h].)

    • The relative speed between your vehicle and the vehicle or pedestrian ahead is approximately 7 mph (10 km/h) or more.
  • Pre-collision brake assist:
    • Vehicle speed is between approximately 20 and 110 mph (30 and 180 km/h). (For detecting a pedestrian, vehicle speed is between approximately 20 and 50 mph [30 and 80 km/h].)
    • The relative speed between your vehicle and the vehicle or pedestrian ahead is approximately 20 mph (30 km/h) or more.
  • Pre-collision braking:
    • Vehicle speed is between approximately 7 and 110 mph (10 and 180 km/h).

      (For detecting a pedestrian, vehicle speed is between approximately 7 and 50 mph [10 and 80 km/h].)

    • The relative speed between your vehicle and the vehicle or pedestrian ahead is approximately 7 mph (10 km/h) or more.

      The system may not operate in the following situations:

  • If a battery terminal has been disconnected and reconnected and then the vehicle has not been driven for a certain amount of time
  • If the shift lever is in R
  • If VSC is disabled (only the pre-collision warning function will be operational)

■Pedestrian detection function

The pre-collision system detects pedestrians based on the size, profile, and motion of a detected object. However, a pedestrian may not be detected depending on the surrounding brightness and the motion, posture, and angle of the detected object, preventing the system from operating properly.

■Cancelation of the pre-collision braking If either of the following occur while the pre-collision braking function is operating, it will be canceled:

  • The accelerator pedal is depressed strongly.
  • The steering wheel is turned sharply or abruptly.

■Conditions under which the system may operate even if there is no possibility of a collision
