Toronto, Ontario — Toyota’s ADAS technology will now be known by a new name, as the features included in the Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) package will now be referred to as “Toyota T-Mate” in European markets going forward.
T-Mate builds on the previous TSS package, which included a pre-collision system (PCS), by incorporating new parking assistance technology into select Toyota vehicles.
The system also now includes road-sign identification technology that allows vehicles to recognize speed limits and other road markers.
Toyota says the T-Mate package differs depending on the model and grade of the vehicle.
TSS, which is included on virtually all Toyotas in North America, uses a camera mounted at the top of the windshield and a radar unit, usually mounted in the grille or front bumper. Some TSS versions also use radar units mounted at the rear of the vehicle.
As it stands, T-Mate is due to have its initial rollout in select European markets before expanding outward.
