The new Land Cruiser from Toyota incorporates technologies that are bridging the gap between self-driving vehicles and the mainstream auto market

Toyota’s latest luxury SUV, the popular 2017 Land Cruiser, comes equipped with sensors as part of a new safety feature—perhaps inspired by Tesla’s innovations in the self-driving sector.

At the minimum price of $84,775, the 2017 Land Cruiser features pre-installed Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P). This system uses cameras and radars for advanced collision avoidance and cruise control. Camera coverage comprises more than just a rear view, already ubiquitous, with a terrain monitor that displays what is around the car on every side.

The inclusion of these technologies in mainstream vehicles seems transitional. Could it be, slowly but surely, a means for self-driving cars to take over?
