Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
Advanced driver assistance systems, often referred to as ADAS, refers to all of the items in your vehicle that are meant to help keep you safe while you are in the vehicle.
Cars that have ADAS are often referred to as intelligent vehicles. They are called such because they are designed to get a good grasp on the surrounding environment of the vehicle and passengers within it, and goes beyond simply checking power steering fluid and oil. This information is gathered through a variety of sensors as well as other data programs that offer drivers help with navigating the roads. A lot of these features will allow the drivers a warning for their behavior and some will correct this behavior automatically. Some of the most popular ADAS vehicles are those that have a GPS, an AFS, collision avoidance systems, as well as 3D dash visualization.
All of these are pretty smart features, with the most popular being a GPS system that will provide directions and navigation tips for destinations you want to visit and routes that you want to take. An advanced front light system will help you to increase your visibility when you are out on the road and held you to adhere to the curves of the road better. This can make driving on long, winding roads a breeze and can help you avoid accidents while on these dangerous roads. 3D in-dash visualization takes GPS to the nest possible level. It helps to display both the terrain and elevation data in a format that most people can understand. With this feature, you can see a rendering of the road as well as the terrain around it. Such assistance is designed to help drivers be more conscious of exactly what else is out there.
Collision avoidance systems are really great tools for drivers, and they help to make sure that they do not get into accidents often. These systems operate simply by using a variety of sensors to detect hazards in the area of your vehicle. The sensors will provide you with a warming if you are driving too close to the surrounding cars, if you are dangerously close to running off of the road, or if there is a road situation which requires you to make a sudden stop. In each of these cases, having some advanced warning before these incidents happened has probably saved a number of lives.
