Toyota pledges automatic braking system on most cars by 2017

PanARMENIAN.Net - Toyota has announced that its automatic braking systems will be standard on 25 out of 30 Toyota and Lexus models, at nearly every trim level, by the end of 2017. It'll only be non-standard on the 4Runner, 86 (formerly the Scion FR-S), Mirai, Lexus GX and Scion iA, Engadget reports.

While Lexus only has one braking system (based on a camera and millimeter wave radar), Toyota has both laser- and millimeter wave-based variants.

Whatever you get, though, it's a big step forward for safety and semi-autonomous driving in one of the world's biggest vehicle brands, Engadget says.
