Toyota introduced the Acceleration Suppression Function (ACF), which, by analyzing big data, can prevent acceleration when the driver presses the accelerator pedal erroneously
It is curious that Japanese cars are able to suppress unwanted acceleration in the presence of obstacles in front of the car since 2012, when Toyota introduced the Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS) system. It will not allow the car to crash in a parking lot or in traffic jam: if there is an obstacle nearby, the car simply will not let you press the gas pedal.
The new function works a little more complicated: it can recognize erroneous gas pressures even in cases where there are no obstacles in the vicinity. For this, real accidents were analyzed in which drivers mixed up the gas and the brake or the gas pedal simply sunk. As a result, a number of negative patterns were developed that are highly likely to reflect erroneous acceleration. If they are recognized in the process of driving, ACF simply will not allow the car to accelerate sharply.
