What are Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)

Technology in our world has never been more essential as part of our daily lives. Whether it’s for getting news updates, messaging your friends and family almost instantly or for traveling. Millions of people are on the road every day for their daily routine but with the amount of accidents happening on the road, the car industry has been stepping up and bringing technology that not only may help save the lives of the passengers but also for bystanders.

In recent years, they have slowly integrated Advanced Driver Assitance Systems (ADAS). These systems vary depending on car manufacturers and their models. Here’s a list of some of the most common systems :
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  • Lane Keep Assist (LKA)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Night vision
  • Automatic Parking
Most accidents on the road are human error and manufacturers are slowly bringing these systems for safety and better driving. All of these new technologies are being installed directly on to vehicle’s windshields and by 2022, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has agreed with car companies to make these systems standard on 99% of the cars in the US. While they’re just starting to add these safety technologies, here’s some of the rest they would like to add in the near future :
  • Driver Drowsiness System
  • Emergency driver System
  • Traffic Sign Recognition
  • Pedestrian Detection
As the world keeps spinning, the technology is expanding rapidly in cars and who knows what’s next. One thing is certain, the cost of windshields aren’t going down.
