Lexus has announced a new active safety package called the Lexus Safety System +, which will be offered on select models starting next year and on all models in Japan, North America, and Europe by 2017.
Lexus Safety System + brings together four existing Lexus safety features and one new technology — here are videos demonstrating the first four:
- Pre-Crash Safety System with pedestrian detection function
- Lane Departure Alert
- Automatic High Beam
- Adaptive Cruise Control
The new safety technology is called Road Sign Assist, and it “uses a camera placed in front of the vehicle to recognize speed limits and road signs and displays them on the meter display”.
