If you have purchased a car in the last few years, chances are that it came with some form of advanced driver-assistance system, also known as ADAS. Advanced driver-assistance systems include any sensors, cameras and automated features that help you stay safe on the road, minimising the risk of human error. By 2030, it is predicted that 50% of all road vehicles will have some form of ADAS technology installed.
From an automatic emergency brake to a lane-keeping assist system, ADAS covers a wide range of technology that is becoming increasingly common in vehicles. Driving a car with ADAS installed and keeping these systems calibrated will reduce the chances of you having an accident, potentially saving time, money and even lives.
Why advanced driver assistance systems are important
The ADAS technology in your vehicle has been specially designed to make driving safer and easier. Advanced driver-assistance systems have been proven to reduce fatalities on the road, due to the fact that most road incidents are caused by human error. With partially autonomous vehicles becoming a way to keep drivers safe, more and more vehicles are adopting ADAS technology.
Each safety system in your car either gives you the information you need to drive with increased awareness or automates aspects of driving. These automated aspects include features such as an automatic braking system, which can respond significantly faster than a human in the event of a potential collision.
Advanced driver-assistance systems that provide you with more information generally involve cameras and sensors, allowing you to see more of your surroundings and alerting you of any potential hazards. Depending on your navigation system, it may also be considered an advanced driver-assistance system.
