What is ADAS – Advanced Driver Assistance Systems?

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, or ADAS, is the term used to describe the growing number of safety functions designed to improve driver, passenger and pedestrian safety by reducing both the severity and overall number of motor vehicle accidents. ADAS can warn drivers of potential dangers, intervene to help the driver remain in control in order to prevent an accident and, if necessary, reduce the severity of an accident if it can’t be avoided.

In short, ADAS compensates for our mistakes, be they inattentiveness, erroneous control inputs or, up to a point, downright stupidity. As uncomfortable as humans are with admitting it, we are not perfect–but ADAS is here to help. At least that’s the idea. ADAS are becoming much more common with new models of vehicles. They are no longer limited to luxury vehicles. Some systems may become standard on all vehicle makes.
