Under certain circumstances, Lane Departure Alert (LDA)is designed to detect lane departure on roads with clear markings. LDA only activates when you're traveling at a speed of 32 mph or faster. When you hear and see the alert, after carefully checking the road around you, you should safely direct your vehicle back to the center of your lane. In addition, when it senses that you're unintentionally drifting, the system may automatically make small corrective steering inputs to help keep your vehicle in its lane.
Intended for highways and similar to "constant speed" cruise control, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) lets you drive at a preset speed. DRCC uses vehicle-to-vehicle distance control, which is designed to adjust your speed, to help you maintain a preset distance from vehicles ahead of you that are driving at a slower speed. DRCC uses a front-grille-mounted radar and an in-vehicle camera to detect vehicles and their distance. If a driver is traveling slower than you, or within your preset range, DRCC will automatically slow your vehicle down without deactivating cruise control. If DRCC determines you need to slow down more, an audio and visual alert notifies you and brakes are applied. When there's no longer a vehicle driving slower than your set speed in front of you, DRCC will then accelerate and regular cruise control will resume. Prius features Full-Speed Range DRCC, which is designed to operate between 0-110 mph. This enables low-speed following, matching speed and, under certain circumstances, stopping before colliding with preceding vehicles on highways.
Using an in-vehicle camera and radar to help detect a vehicle or a pedestrian in front of you, the Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) is designed to help you mitigate or avoid a potential collision. If the system determines that a frontal collision is likely, it prompts you to take action using audio and visual alerts. If you notice the potential collision and apply the brakes, PCS w/PD may apply additional force using Brake Assist. If you don't brake in time, it may automatically apply the brakes to reduce your speed, helping to minimize the likelihood of a frontal collision or reduce its severity.
When you slowly back out of a driveway or parking spot, available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) is designed to provide an audible indicator to help warn you of approaching vehicles.
Don't let foul weather put a damper on your drive. The available rain-sensing variable windshield wipers on Prius automatically adjust to match the amount of rain hitting the windshield and the speed of the car. Just set the wipers to "auto," and Prius does the rest.
