Pre-Collision Safety system

All-New Camry

Using your vehicle’s built-in camera or radar, the Pre-Collision Safety (PCS)[B8] system has been designed to alert you when a frontal collision is likely.

Many Toyotas come with PCS as standard. Some new models feature PCS with Pedestrian Detection[B2] (which, depending on your vehicle, may be effective during the day and/or at night) and PCS with Cyclist Detection[B37] (effective during the day only) to avoid or reduce the severity of a collision.

Pre-Collision Safety system with Cyclist Detection[B37] only available on Corolla Hatch models produced after June 2018.




If a potential collision is detected, the system will sound a buzzer and display the word “BRAKE” on your Toyota’s Multi-Information Display (behind the steering wheel) or Head-Up display if you have one.



Once you’ve hit the brakes, the system will check whether you’ve applied enough pressure. If you haven’t, it may add a little extra to avoid or reduce the severity of a collision.



If the hazard is too close, the Pre-Collision Brake (PB) system will activate, applying a large amount of pressure to help you stop sooner and minimise any damage.

Don’t forget:

Even when you’re driving a vehicle that uses PCS with Pedestrian Detection Technology, you must always remain aware of your surroundings – especially as pedestrians and cyclists aren’t always easy to see.

Here's a list of some of the things that might impact the operation of your PCS system:

  • Low or harsh light
  • People who may be obstructed from view
  • Certain clothing or movement that obscures or affects body contours
  • Pedestrians that are under one metre or over two metres tall

      Please note: This technology is a driver-assist feature only. It’s not designed to replace safe driving practices.
