Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
Technology that helps a driver avoid hazards on the road is considered advanced driver assistance systems. This technology can range from the most commonly known options such as electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes, to blind-spot monitoring, lane-change assistance, collision warnings or avoidance systems, such as automatic braking. ADAS technology is designed to either alert the driver of impending challenges or to override the driver input to prevent collisions. ADAS is available to varying degrees in commercial vehicles, but are the driving force behind autonomous vehicles.
