To overcome these limitations, an advanced parking guidance system
that can provide intelligent parking information is required.
to build a better bicycle helmet; using the Solar Powered Ventilation System to remove smoke from indoor cooking fire in homes in impoverished areas; using the Hybrid Synergy Drive to create a power plant gym; and using the Advanced Parking Guidance System
to develop an enhanced automated firefighting extension ladder guidance.
Ideas for Good featured technologies include Total Human Model for Safety, Hybrid Synergy DriveA(R), Solar Powered Ventilation System, Touch Tracer Display and Advanced Parking Guidance System
It will invite the consumers to come up with new ways to use five existing Toyota Motor technologies, like the advanced parking guidance system
that is available on the Toyota Prius; or a lifelike human model, nicknamed Thums, that the company's engineers employ in crash tests; and a solar-powered ventilation system, also from the Prius.
The Advanced Parking Guidance System
(APGS) by ARTC helps drivers find suitable parking spaces by detecting obstacles with ultrasonic sensing and image recognition technologies, as well as steer vehicles automatically to parking spaces by path tracking control with an EPS.
That system certainly eclipses the available Advanced Parking Guidance System
that uses the rear back-up camera and sonar sensors (on a standard LS 600h L there are 10 sonar distance-ranging sensors, four in the rear and six in the front; this optional parking systems adds two more, one each on the front sides of the vehicle) to figure out how to drive the electric steering to slot the car into a parking space.
An optional extra is the advanced parking guidance system
, which uses sensors to measure the length of a parking space as you drive past.
Among the items catching the most attention from the group, according to ARTC, were an advanced parking guidance system
(APGS), blind-spot monitoring system, and sensor-based adaptive front-lighting system.
