People, Vehicles and the Traffic Environment are the pillars in our pursuit of the ultimate goal – zero casualties from traffic accidents.
We analyze various accident data and conduct extensive collision testing to constantly introduce safety measures that reduce injuries in the case of an accident. Details
We created one of the most advanced driving simulators in the world — a moving dome with 360-degree HD views, where we can simulate left and right turns, acceleration and deceleration and collect driver and vehicle data in situations that would be too dangerous to attempt while actually driving. Innovations like this ensure that our Safety Technology is constantly evolving. Learn More
To help assess the injury mechanisms of the human body during a collision, Total Human Models for Safety — THUMS, have been developed to simulate crash-induced injuries to internal organs at the tissue level.Read More and Watch Video
At Toyota, we believe in continuous improvement. Better is never enough. We constantly strive to create vehicles that help reduce accidents by building systems that assist drivers in each stage of driving: Parking, Active Safety, Pre-Crash Safety, Passive Safety and Rescue.

Parking systems, like Backup Cameras with Guide Monitors, assist drivers in parking or reversing safely, helping to reduce collisions. Watch Video
Our Pre-crash Safety systems provide a warning when an obstacle is detected by radar. They apply the brakes automatically and tighten the safety belt in preparation for a collision — reducing the likelihood and severity of damage. Read More
In order to best prepare each Toyota vehicle in case of collision, Toyota strives for the best Passive Safety measures in the world. This includes building collision-absorbing body structures, and restraint systems like seats, seatbelts and airbags, that help protect passengers in a collision. Learn More
If a severe collision does occur, the location of the vehicle is transmitted to our Emergency Dispatch Service (in Japan), and emergency rescue services are contacted to assist. This helps to reduce response time and the likelihood of casualties or further accidents. Check it out
