In an effort to improve the driving experience and make the task of driving more convenient, Toyota has developed a number of high-tech driver assistance features. One of these is Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, which is designed to maintain a set driving speed as well as a set distance behind the car ahead of you. Here’s a little bit about how Dynamic Radar Cruise Control works in Toyota vehicles.

Using Dynamic Radar Cruise Control in Toyota vehicles
After setting a desired cruise control speed in your Toyota, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control utilizes a front-grille-mounted, millimeter-wave radar and an in-car camera to detect the vehicle ahead of you and determine how far away it is. If the system senses the vehicle ahead is moving slower than you or is within your set distance range, it will automatically decelerate your vehicle without cancelling cruise control. If additional braking power is necessary, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control will provide an audible and visual alert. The feature adjusts your speed as needed within your preset speed and distance settings. When there is no longer a vehicle detected ahead, the system accelerates to your set cruising speed.
