What is the News?

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) technology has been increasingly integrated into modern vehicles with the aim of improving driver safety and making roads safer for everyone.

What is Advanced Driver Assistance Systems(ADAS) Technology?

ADAS encompasses a variety of technologies that provide drivers with warnings, alerts, and even automatic interventions to help them avoid accidents and prevent potential danger. 

These systems work by using sensors, cameras, and radar to monitor the surrounding environment and provide the driver with visual and audio warnings.

It includes features such as automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, blind spot collision warning, blind spot collision-avoidance assist, lane-keeping assist, driver attention warning and adaptive cruise control.

Benefits: One of the key benefits of ADAS is that it can help reduce the number of accidents caused by human error as studies have shown that 90% of car accidents are caused by driver error, so it’s crucial to have technology that can help reduce this number. 

– For example, a lane departure warning alerts drivers when their vehicle is leaving its lane without the use of a turn signal, while a forward collision warning provides an alert when a potential collision is detected ahead.
