Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are technologies that uses various in-cab sensors to receive and analyze information/data collected from environment inside or outside the vehicle and to assist the driver to keep a safe driving when a potential danger is identified.

In recent years the ADAS market has been developing at a fast pace. Originally the systems are limited to high-end market and now has turned to the mid-market. Many systems of low-tech are more often to be applied to entry-level passenger cars. Some of these technologies have been around for a long time, and they have already proven to result in an improved driving experience and better overall road safety.

Let’s take a look at some most popular ADAS available in the market:

Collision avoidance systems
Collision avoidance systems use a variety of sensors to determine whether a vehicle is in danger of colliding with another object. These systems can typically sense the proximity of other vehicles, pedestrians, animals, and various roadway obstructions. When the vehicle is in danger of colliding with another object, the collision avoidance system will warn the driver. Some of these systems can also take other preventive actions, such as precharging the brakes or apply tension to the seat belts. More »

Driver drowsiness detection
Driver drowsiness or awareness detection systems use a number of different means to determine if a driver’s attention is starting to wander. Some of these systems use a infrared sensor to detect the driver’s pupil to identify if the driver has become drowsiness and some look for the driver’s head to nod in a telltale motion that indicates sleepiness. More »

GPS Tracking
GPS tracking systems effectively replace bulky, cumbersome paper maps. These devices are often capable of providing vocal directions as well, which saves the driver from having to actually look at the screen. Some GPS navigation systems also provide live traffic data, which drivers previously had to obtain by listening to news radio stations. More »

Adaptive cruise control
This advanced driver assistance technology is especially useful on the highway, where drivers otherwise have to constantly monitor their cruise control systems for safety reasons. With advanced cruise control, a vehicle will automatically slow down or speed up in response to the actions of the car or truck in front of it. Most of these systems automatically shut off below a certain speed threshold, but others can even be used in stop and go traffic.

Blind spot detection
Blind spot detection systems use a variety of sensors to provide a driver with vital information that would be difficult or impossible to come by through any other means. Some of these systems will sound an alarm if they sense the presence of an object within a blind spot, and other include cameras that can transmit an image to the head unit or another monitor.

Except the above ADAS, there are still many other ADAS like adaptive light control, automatic braking, automatic parking, hill descent control etc. Some of these systems will have the staying power to stick around, and you can expect to see at least a few of them in your next car. Others may fizzle and disappear or be replaced by better implementations of the same basic idea.
