Types of ADAS
Whilst some forms of ADAS are pre-built into cars, there are also some systems that can be added on. Here are some common types of ADAS that are available in most modern cars today.
GPS Navigation: When was the last time you used a paper map? GPS Navigation systems are inbuilt screens that guide you to your destination via a visual map and vocal directions. Most GPS Navigation systems today will also provide you with live traffic updates so that you can navigate around areas that are busy.
Adaptive Light Control: This ADAS component assists drivers by automatically turning on the headlights when the natural lighting is reduced.
Collision Avoidance Systems: Collusion avoidance systems are powered by multiple sensors which warn you when your vehicle is critically close to another object. Collision Avoidance Systems are invaluable in warning drivers when there are unseen obstructions in your blind spots.
Automatic Braking: Automatic braking systems assist the driver in cases of high-speed collisions by automatically slowing down the vehicle to lessen any potential damages caused.
Adaptive Cruise Control: If you plan on making a trip along the highway, especially if it’s a long trip, you’ll want to activate cruise control to make your journey a lot easier. With advanced cruise control systems, your vehicle will be programmed to autonomously slow down or speed up in reaction to the vehicle directly ahead of you.
