Radar Cruise Control

Toyota Safety Sense (TSS)-P (for mid-sized and large vehicles) equipped vehicles include Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC). On highways, DRCC functions similarly to conventional "constant speed" cruise control in that it helps vehicles travel at a consistent speed set by the driver, but this system adds a vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode which assists the driver by adjusting vehicle speed (within a set range) to help maintain a preset distance to a preceding vehicle when the preceding vehicle is traveling at a lower speed. Once a vehicle speed is set by the driver (approximately 28 mph or higher), DRCC uses a front-grille-mounted, millimeter-wave radar and an in-vehicle camera to detect a preceding vehicle and help determine its distance. If the vehicle ahead is detected traveling at a speed slower than your set speed or within your distance range setting, the system is designed to automatically decelerate your vehicle without having to cancel the cruise control. When a greater reduction in vehicle speed is necessary, the system may apply the brakes, may alert the driver by using an audio and visual alert, and may operate your vehicle brake lights. The system will then respond to changes in the speed of the vehicle ahead in order to help maintain the vehicle-to-vehicle distance set by the driver. When there is no longer a preceding vehicle driving slower than your vehicle's set speed, the system accelerates until the set speed is reached and returns to constant speed cruising.
