EBD optimises the 2012 Lexus IS300 performance of the car’s ABS anti-lock braking system. ABS prevents an individual wheel from locking by cutting brake pressure as soon as a skid is detected. EBD takes this approach into another dimension. It can, for instance, adjust the braking force between the front and rear wheels to suit the car’s load and road conditions, or brake the wheels on one side slightly harder than the other to maintain stability during a corner. Speed sensors on all four wheels detect when one or more wheels are about to lock up. The Lexus IS300 system instantly calculates which wheels need to be braked and which need to be released. This information is relayed to the Brake Actuator which then distributes the brakeforce to each wheel accordingly. Result: stable, safer braking, whether you’re travelling in a straight line or round a corner.
Traditionally, a heavy load makes ordinary headlamps point skywards, which reduces the spread of the beam and dazzles oncoming drivers. The Headlamp Control System takes care of refocusing the beam back on the road automatically. Sensors on the front and rear axle detect the horizontal level of your car and adjusts the lights according. It’s just one more thing you don’t have to worry about.
2012 Lexus IS300 with Bluetooth telephone connectivity allows you to wirelessly integrate a compatible mobile phone and offers hands-free communication. Wherever your phone is in the car, the hands-free system is activated. The phone can be controlled from the unique touch-screen EMV (Electric Multi-vision screen), which stores up to 500 numbers, while sound is channelled through the car’s speaker system. The system even allows you to call the phone numbers of places such as art galleries, museums and restaurants by simply touching the screen. Some Bluetooth phones are better than others at making the most of all these features, so please ask your Lexus Retailer for advice on compatible handsets.
Even the most experienced drivers sometimes fail to apply enough pressure to the brake pedal in an emergency. That’s where Brake Assist comes in. During an emergency, your foot comes off the throttle and on to the brake pedal faster than normal, which you then depress with more urgency than usual. This Lexus IS300 is registered by on-board sensors. Next, a brake pedal load-sensing switch and speed sensor determine if you have braked hard enough. If not, the system instantly determines how much extra braking force is required. Then the brake actuator distributes the extra braking force to all four wheels to help you achieve smooth, safe, maximum braking. It all happens in a split second and is so unobtrusive that you’ll probably never know that Brake Assist has been at work.
