How ADAS Will Affect Fleet Management
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are a collection of technologies that are designed to aid drivers and alert them to potential dangers on the road. A few examples of ADAS technology include traffic-jam assistance, adaptive cruise control, and even emergency braking. Studies show that Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), in particular, has the ability to reduce the chance of an accident by 38%.
The most common and practical examples of ADAS include intelligent headlights, lane departure warning, 360-degree cameras, and sensors that detect when another vehicle is in your blind spot. The reason that these systems are so effective and affordable is that they use cameras and light sensors— technologies which have greatly increased in quality and decreased in cost over the decades.
These technologies can also be integrated with existing vehicle dashcams, utilizing visual information from the cameras to inform drivers of nearby vehicles or notify them in case they drift outside their lane.
