  • Amazing Technology!

    Life Saver? Something to make cars cost more money? Impossible!?

    i just seen this on a commercial and immediatly looked it up. i will start by explaining the commercial.
    a man is driving his new lexus and rolls into an intersection while not looking at the road. of coarse theres a car passing by and seconds before he hits the car, his seat stiffens up, and his seatbelt tightens, then he slams into the car. Pre-Collision Technology

    Here is a link to the article.

    Quote from article:

    "New Pre-Collision Technology

    Lexus has equipped the 2007 Lexus ES 350 with an even higher level of dynamic and passive safety technology than before. Notably, the advanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) with traction control system (TRAC) is now standard, and the 2007 ES 350 becomes the second car in its segment to offer an available pre-collision system (the first was the sporty Lexus IS introduced for 2006).

    VSC also integrates Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), and the Brake Assist feature. VSC helps control loss of lateral traction while cornering on slippery or dry road surfaces by using throttle intervention and/or applying individual wheel braking to help control any discrepancy between where the driver is steering and where the vehicle is heading.

    EBD optimizes braking pressure at each wheel to help minimize body dive or sway during hard braking and cornering. Brake Assist is designed to determine if the driver is attempting emergency braking and, if the driver has not stepped firmly enough on the brake pedal to activate the ABS, it applies increased braking force until pedal pressure is released.

    The optional Pre-Collision System (PCS) in the ES 350 can help reduce collision damage. The package includes Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, which uses millimeter-wave radar to measure and maintain a set distance from a vehicle traveling ahead. PCS relies on the radar sensor to detect obstacles in front of the car, and a PCS computer with vehicle speed, steering angle and yaw-rate inputs helps to determine whether a collision is unavoidable.

    In such a situation, PCS preemptively retracts front seat belts and pre-initializes Brake Assist so that increased braking will be applied the instant the driver depresses the pedal. The 'Active Braking' feature can automatically apply the brakes up to a deceleration rate of 0.3 G's if the driver fails to react to system warnings."

    i know most of you wont care about this, but wow this is amazing! this will save many injuries, and even the lives of the few who wear seatbelts. first cars that park themselves, now cars that get ready for an accident. whats next??

      yeah, but it's in a Lexus. Shouldn't they be focusing on making family cars safer without having it cost a bazillion dollars.
      MLG players are NOT real gamers. Real gamers are the 15 year old kids who go door to door on their block to mow lawns so they can buy the game. Real gamers are 22, in college and just want a break. Real gamers are 34, work full time and want a game to play with their friends all over the country on a Saturday morning. Real gamers dont get paid to play.

        very good point dex. being that a Lexus is out of the price range for more then 3/4 of the world, this technology is basically only available to the "Upper Class" so to say. typical manufacturer

          Yes and no, often new technology needs to enter the market in the high price range. First because they haven't developed mass production to put it in all of the cars, and the higher markup means less risk if done properly

            The more you learn about the part from market quotations, the more reliable and scientific your procurement method will be. W1A2ZD104KAT2A Capacitor Networks, Arrays, and variable related components such as PLE0J681MDO1,6SEP470M,16SEQP180M are worth trying due to the wide applications of the W1A2ZD104KAT2A Capacitor Networks, Arrays, and variable related parts such as PLE0J681MDO1,6SEP470M,16SEQP180M are worth tring.

                Radian has a wide variety of BGA Plate Fin Aluminum Heatsinks that are available to deliver within some days. If a element or BGA Aluminum heatsink length isn't always to be had on-line we are able to typically provide an alternative element, or adjust a element in inventory to suit you. For lower volumes, we can also precision machine a heatsink to suit our EZ-snap clip, and for large volumes an extrusion may be made to your genuine requirements. Please contact us if you want help selecting the correct answer.
