After analyzing the data on acceleration of cars, employees of the European Technical Center Toyota identified those cases when this happened unintentionally, that is, through the fault of the driver. Based on the characteristics of such situations, an algorithm has been created that blocks acceleration. The system resembles the Intelligent Clearance Sonar parking assistant, but it works even when there is no obstacle in front of the car.
Implementation of the Acceleration Suppression function will begin in the summer from the Japanese market. All new cars will receive it. In addition, owners of some older Toyota models will be able to install the system.
