Lexus has announced a full suite of new safety features that will debut with the new LS — called Lexus Safety System + A, the new technologies will add a degree of semi-autonomous driving assistance to the flagship sedan.
The amount of information here is staggering and will likely take some time to absorb. The press release mentions that the new system will be available in Japan, North America and Europe, but the specific markets have yet to be confirmed.
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.
