ADAS systems: what they are
When we talk about “ADAS system” we mean advanced electronic systems such as, among many others, rain sensors, twilight sensor, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, parking sensors, lane change warning or automatic signal recognition. All of these devices are installed in newly type-approved cars to minimize the risk of accidents and make life in the car easier.
Safety systems: zero-risk cars
The car ADAS system includes, mainly, the control systems that we indicate below:
Cruise Control: ACC
Adaptive cruise control (ACC), that is speed control, is one of the most appreciated car ADAS because it allows, after setting the desired cruising speed and the preferred safety distance, to let the car drive autonomously. Thanks to this device, the car will accelerate and brake according to the traffic conditions and the driver will have the possibility to relax in the driver’s seat while keeping the situation under control.
Of all the car safety systems now available on the latest small cars, frontal and rear collision warning is undoubtedly the most popular ADAS system. Thanks to the presence of a camera or an auto radar located in the front area, the ADAS safety system recognizes dangerous situations and warns the driver with an acoustic signal. The rear collision warning system operates in the same way in the event of a rear-end collision, and prior to impact activates the safety systems to prepare the occupants of the car for the collision.
