Videos: The New Lexus LS Semi-Autonomous Safety Systems in Action

Lexus LS Safety System

Japanese website Car Watch has posted extensive video demonstrations of the new Lexus LS Safety System + A, and the tech here is very impressive.

Lexus CoDrive

Lexus CoDrive adds Lane Change Assist (LCA) and Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) to assist steering the driver on highways. It coordinates with the LS’s HUD and multi-information display to clearly notify the driver of the state of support provided.

Parking Support Brakes

With the aim of reducing damage from accidents when parking, low-speed braking support systems have been integrated into a single package. Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS) and Rear Cross Traffic Auto Brake (RCTAB) is the world’s first rear pedestrian detection, and in the case of a possible collision, will assist to minimizes damages by using alerts and brake control.

Pedestrian Alert & Active Steering Assist

The new LS is equipped with Pedestrian Alert, a world-first technology that can identify the walking direction of a pedestrian, and Active Steering Assist, which can automatically controls steering and braking.

Front Cross Traffic Alert (FCTA)

To help prevent collisions at intersections, FCTA is meant to detect forward cross-traffic vehicles. It uses forward direction radar and is the first in the world to alert drivers of the oncoming vehicle’s direction. Alerts are displayed using the LS’s HUD, and should the driver ignore this message, warnings are also issued by a buzzer and the LS’s multi-information display.

Driver Emergency Stop Assist (coordinated with LTA)

Should a driver disengage from driving while Lane Tracing Assist is active, Driver Emergency Stop Assist will issues audio and visual alerts while gently decelerating the vehicle.

Comments
The entire industry is in denial about infotainment, tbh. Even the most highly rated OEM systems are still extremely clunky compared to modern phones, and many of them are still too proud to admit defeat and let your phone handle it (CarPlay/Android Auto).
More than just Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, I saw a new concept by Google that integrates Android into the whole vehicle, not just the infotainment system. So it controls the whole car, with Google Assistant to voice control everything, and OEMs can modify it to their needs. A lot better IMO than anything on the market since the rest of the car is consistent with the infotainment, and Android User Interface is a lot cleaner and simpler than most OEM UIs. An Android Phone isn't needed as it is the "operating system" of the car.

Hans Grimmel? Any way he said he was extremely impressed with the autobots feature. I want to know more about it and what makes it so impressive compared to others. #Curious

I'd want there to be very good barriers between this and any actual car control (steering, brakes, acceleration, engine start/stop, etc). Android's big selling point other than being free is that it's trivially "rootable", at which point even modestly skilled people can (and regularly do) make the device do whatever they want.

The front sensing pedestrian is cool though in real world situations, pedestrians typically try to measure out the oncoming cars and try to get out of the way by sensing the speed and distance left to travel. Now all of a sudden a car is assuming pedestrians are staying still? Or the car detects the direction of the pedestrian and swerves to the opposite side? What if there are a line of people? Where would it swerve to?
