Toyota adds Automatic Park feature to prevent roll-aways

Toyota has announced a set of new automated features that aim make its cars greener and safer in future. The vehicle will automatically shut down a vehicle that has an engine running longer than an extended period of time.

Automatic Engine Shut Off will get an update sometime after launch to allow smartphone capabilities and an added reminder.

The first safety tech that we will be seeing on mot 2020 Toyota models is the Auto Shut Off feature which will help turn off the engine of the vehicle automatically after a certain period.

Toyota will begin to phase in Automatic Park, which is created to help reduce the risk of roll-away. In Toyotas with an electronic shifter and/or an electronic parking brake, the auto will automatically put itself into park and/or apply the parking brake if it detects the driver has exited the vehicle without putting it into park. In fact, the company says it is "relentless" in its commitment to continued safety. Toyota notes that its vehicles already include an audible and visual warning and its non-traditional shifters have a separate P button to reduce confusion.

The second novelty - "Automatic Park" - will appear on models equipped with electronic Parking brake. This feature has been offered in the United States market since the early 2000s and is now very common on new cars.

Toyota will also add more noticeable warning sounds and visual alerts to its new models to ensure drivers are aware that the engine is turned on as they leave the vehicle, the automaker said. The reason has been identified as "keyless" proximity fobs and push-button start, where owners, perhaps older drivers more accustomed to a keyed ignition, overlooked the fact they didn't turn off the engine, which flooded their homes with exhaust fumes. This new equipment, Toyota says, should prevent vehicles from rolling away.
