A Guide to Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
As technology becomes more advanced, a growing number of vehicles are being built with intelligent systems to help motorists. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, or ADAS, is a term used to describe these smart features.
ADAS includes relatively simple features like rear view cameras to help with parking through to more complicated systems like Lane Departure Warning (LDW) that can detect a vehicle’s surroundings. These advanced systems can actually take some control of the vehicle, such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB).
In this guide, we describe the ADAS technology available and their benefits, which could be useful when you and your drivers are selecting your next vehicle.
What is ADAS?
Whether your car has adaptive high beams, a collision detection system or autonomous night vision, these are all classed as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
If you and your drivers understand what these smart features are and what they do, you can get the most benefit from them, improving your driving experience and making other road users safer.
