How Technology is Driving the Democratization of ADAS (.PDF Download)

March 17, 2020

Today's ADAS (advanced driver-assistance systems) functions do more than reduce the risk of injuries during a crash. Many features, such as autonomous braking, collision avoidance, and the ability of a vehicle to determine whether a lane change is possible, are designed to help avoid accidents altogether.

ADAS features, only offered to drivers when purchasing a new vehicle as embedded solutions, first appeared as options on high-end luxury vehicles. Unfortunately, to date it hasn’t been economically feasible for all cars to have all ADAS technologies. But carmakers and Tier-1 suppliers are striving to make driving-assistance features available in as many cars as possible. This means that more vehicles need to be capable of cost-effectively sensing, processing, and acting on real-time data.
