T-Mate covers a wide range of features, combining TSS with other active driving and parking-assistance technologies to improve safety for passengers and other road users alike.

The suite includes existing TSS features such as the pre-collision system (PCS), which now incorporates acceleration suppression at low speeds as well as a cut-in traffic assist feature. There’s also a road-sign assist that works hand-in-hand with adaptive cruise control to detect speed limits on certain roads. Lane-trace assist and automatic high beam are likewise available.
