The NS4 concept uses a human-machine interface (HMI) centred on a touch screen with the look and feel of a smart phone. Described as “simple” and “intuitive”, the system is intended to convey information quickly while minimally distracting the driver.
BIG TECH: Toyota has teamed up with technology leaders on its NS4 concept.
Additional safety features include a pre-collision system with lane departure and pedestrian collision avoidance technologies. The system uses millimetre-wave radar and stereo cameras mounted on the front of the vehicle to detect and react to lane deviations, pedestrians and other vehicles. If a collision is imminent it will try to avoid other vehicles, road-side obstructions and humans by braking and manipulating the steering.
COLLISION AVOIDANCE: The NS4 concept's safety technology promises to be top-notch, too.
