Benefits of Toyota Road Sign Assist

Everyone has heard of Toyota’s best feature – the Safety Sense 2.0. The Road Sign Assist is a brand new feature that was recently included.
What is Road Sign Assist?

A lot of times, especially when we’re in a hurry or distracted, we tend to miss important road signs. This can be really dangerous to the safety of all occupants of the car and the vehicles & people on the road. The Toyota Road Sign Assist technology has been designed to address this very problem. The Road Sign Assist is built with numerous state-of-the-art sensors that scan the surroundings of the car when in motion. If the sensors identify a road sign, they quickly evaluate what the sign actually means – Stop, Go Slow, Yield, Speed Limit, One Way, Divided Highway Crossing, Bike Lane, To Train Crossing, etc.

Once identified, the Road Sign Assist will alert the driver (using visual cues on the dashboard multimedia display and a buzzer sound).
