What is ADAS?
ADAS stands for “Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.” These systems rely upon cameras, lasers, and radar – often with the camera mounting to the windshield. The “assistance” provided by the ADAS systems comes in the form of warnings. For example, when your car begins to move out of its lane or too close to the car in front of you, the camera system will calculate the distance and realize if it’s a safety hazard situation. Almost instantly, the ADAS triggers your vehicle to flash warning lights, vibrate your seat or sound a voice alarm to inform you of unsafe driving concerns. Some automobiles come factory equipped with advanced systems that apply brakes to avoid a collision.
