Everyone has the right to be safe on the road. That’s why we think Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) will help you stay a step ahead of life’s surprises. An ADAS includes safety features such as: Alert Braking; Adaptive Cruise Control; Anti-lock Brakes; Forward Collision Warning; High Beam Safety System; Lane Departure Warning; Traffic Signals Recognition; and Traction Control.

These advanced systems are designed to keep your vehicle in your lane and maintain a constant distance from other cars on the road, while also providing a warning system for impending curves or intersections – giving you more time to react before it’s too late. 

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are designed to help drivers stay safe and minimize the risk of accidents. These systems can detect potential hazards, such as vehicles in a blind spot or oncoming traffic that is not visible. They will also act as an emergency brake if necessary, which may prevent serious injury or death from occurring in certain scenarios where it would be difficult for the driver to stop in time.  

The following gives you more information about ADAS and how they improve safety while driving! 

What is an Advanced Driver Assistance System?

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are computerized systems that use cameras, sensors and radar to help drivers avoid accidents. This technology is becoming more prominent as forward collision warning alerts for lane departure warnings become available on cars across the industry.

An Advanced Driver Assistance System can be considered a form of car insurance; it reduces your risk by alerting you when an accident may happen if you do not take control or stop using autopilot modes in certain situations such as driving through construction zones with workers present where they might hit one side of your vehicle while working on the other side.

What are the benefits of ADAS for drivers and passengers in vehicles today, and how will they improve safety on the roadways in the future?

In today’s modern society, it is no surprise that the use of driverless vehicles will become more and more common to help reduce car accidents. Driverless cars are programmed with a variety of technologies such as lane departure warning systems, which can detect when you’re about to leave your designated driving lane without using turn signals; collision avoidance technology, which detects objects in or near its path so drivers don’t have collisions if they fail to stop in time; pedestrian detection brakes, which slow the vehicle down automatically before hitting pedestrians on the roadways who may be crossing at an intersection, but didn’t see you coming up behind them; and alert braking, which warns drivers when they’re about to hit something and can even apply the brakes automatically if needed, so you stay in control at all times.

How can you get your hands on one now if it’s not available in your vehicle yet?

Your current vehicle may not be equipped with ADAS yet, but you can still get your hands on one now. How? Well, if the car has a collision avoidance system or blind spot detection, for example, that is compatible with an iPhone, then all you need to do is install Apple’s CarPlay app and it will essentially enable those features in your car so they work from within the touchscreen of your phone! It really does seem like a good idea considering many drivers have Smartphones located directly next to them while driving anyways.

Why should I care about ADAS, anyway?

It’s time to take the wheel! Can’t you think of any reasons why we should care about ADAS? Well, it could save your life. You might be on a lonely road one night when an 18-wheeler comes barreling straight for you in the opposite lane. How does the ADAS know this is going to happen? By using hidden sensors and cameras which detect what other vehicles are doing so they don’t crash into each other. This way, these crashes won’t happen as often because there will be fewer accidents due to blind spots or bad weather conditions like foggy days with limited visibility. Just imagine not having drivers relying solely on their vision anymore.
