Fundamentals of ADAS, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) provides recognition and tracking information to onboard safety systems to detect driver drowsiness, lane departure warning, collision avoidance and protective features to avoid accidents and enhance the driving experience.

It’s estimated that ADAS technologies could cut U.S. road deaths in half if they came standard on all new vehicles, according to a new Consumer Reports analysis and related fact sheets. CR’s study finds that widespread adoption of crash avoidance technologies available today and other existing safety systems could save upward of 20,000 lives annually.

ADAS uses camera-based sensors that allow the car to and helps the driver to be better aware of the driving environment. Cameras are installed outside the vehicle, mainly at the top, front, back, sides to capture the images of various objects and traffic sign-language like street, road signs, vehicles, pedestrians and other objects.

The information captured by ADAS cameras is quickly analyzed by supporting software and used to trigger a response by the vehicle to improve safety – such as automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, driver awake and alert monitoring, blind spot alerts, etc.

ADAS prevents the kinds of accidents caused by driver error. It’s well documented that lack of attention for a while or sudden object appearance are the leading causes of accidents in cars taking many lives across the world.

ADAS and self-driving cars are not the same thing. In autonomous vehicles the control is fully granted to machine from self-driving to handling or steering and braking. The driver does not control anything, it can drive itself in the right direction following the right path and traffic rules without colliding any object.

In ADAS, systems are installed to assist the drivers when they unable to recognize the situation. In ADAS, systems work semi-autonomously to take quick action when a driver does not pay attention to make the driving safe and trouble-free.

ADAS technologies for cars include:

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Blind-spot detection
  • Land-departure warnings
  • Forward collision warning
  • Lane-keeping assistance
  • Parking assistance system
  • Tire-pressure monitoring
  • Autonomous emergency breaking
  • Adaptive headlights
  • Surround view system

Many see ADAS as a stepping stone to autonomous vehicles where drivers turn over complete control to their cars, which in turn see and analyze the world around them while driving by themselves.

Future-generation ADAS will continue to plug into wireless network connectivity to provide higher safety and monetary value by using V2V and V2X data.

Fundamentals of ADAS, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) by Tonex

Fundamentals of ADAS, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) training course gives a foundation on ADAS, architecture, components,  sensor types, topologies, and system setups.

What You Will Learn

The goal of ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems) training is cover the fundamentals to enhance safety, comfort, and efficiency of driving by intervening in the handling aspects of the vehicle. Participants will learn how driver assistance deals with the environment: sensing and responding, the vehicle in terms of sensing and actuating electromechanical systems, and most importantly the driver in terms of augmenting information, enhancing sensing capabilities, and assisting in control functions.

How You Will Benefit

Participants will examine various aspects of driver assistance system including driver cognitive perception–response, system types and classifications, integrated safety, man–machine interface, and evaluation of effectiveness.
