Advanced driver-assistance systems

Advanced driver-assistance systems , or ADAS , are systems to help the driver in the driving process. When designed with a safe human-machine interface , they should increase safety and more general road safety .


Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) are systems developed to automate / adapt / enhance vehicle systems for safety and better driving. Collisions are the most common forms of collision and collision avoidance. Adaptive features may automate lighting, provide adaptive cruise control, automatic braking, incorporate GPS / traffic warnings, connect to smartphones, alert driver to other cars or dangers, keep the driver in the correct lane, or show what is in blind spots.

There are many forms of ADAS available; Some features are built in or are available as an add-on package. Also, there are aftermarket solutions available. [1] ADAS relies on inputs from multiple data sources, including automotive imaging, LiDAR , radar , image processing , computer vision , and in-car networking . [2] Additional inputs are possible from other sources from the primary vehicle platform, such as other vehicles, referred to as Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), or Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (such as mobile telephony or wifi data network) systems.

IEEE 2020 for Advanced Automotive Electronics, [3] with steadily increasing rates of adoption of industry-wide quality standards, in vehicular safety systems ISO 26262 , Image Sensor quality [4] and communications protocols. [5]

Next-generation ADAS will increasingly be able to use the car-to-car (also known as Vehicle to V2V) and car-to-infrastructure (also known as Vehicle to Infrastructure, or V2X) data . [6]


On March 31, 2014, the US Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced that it would require all new vehicles under 10,000 pounds (4,500 kg) to have rear view cameras by May 2018. [7] The rule was required Cameron Gulbransen, the Cameron Gulbransen Kids Transportation Safety Act of 2007. Cameron Gulbransen, who was killed when his father failed to see the toddler and accidentally backed his SUV over the family driveway. [8]

GM offers vibrating seat warning, in Cadillacs starting with the 2013 Cadillac ATS. If the driver begins drifting out of the highway, the seat vibrates on the side of the seat in the direction of the drift, warning the driver of danger. The Safety Alert Seat also provides a vibrating pulse on both sides of the seat when a frontal threat is detected. [9] The system was first offered by Citroen in 2006 as part of its AFIL (Lane Departure Warning) system. See: Driver drowsiness detection .

Alcohol ignition interlock devices are a predescribed amount. [10] The Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have called for a Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety (DADSS) program to put alcohol detection devices in all cars. [11]
