What is ADAS?

ADAS refers to a collection of electronic systems and features designed to assist drivers in various aspects of driving. These systems utilize sensors, cameras, and advanced algorithms to detect and analyze the surrounding environment, providing real-time information and warnings to the driver.

What are the Benefits?

One of the key benefits of ADAS is its ability to prevent accidents and mitigate the severity of collisions. By constantly monitoring the road and the vehicle's surroundings, ADAS can alert the driver to potential hazards, such as pedestrians, cyclists, or other vehicles. It can also assist in maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle ahead, preventing rear-end collisions.

How does it work?

ADAS encompasses a wide range of features, each serving a specific purpose to enhance driver safety and convenience. Some common ADAS features include:

  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW): LDW uses cameras to monitor the vehicle's position within the lane and alerts the driver if they unintentionally drift out of their lane.
  • Blind Spot Detection (BSD): BSD utilizes sensors to detect vehicles in the driver's blind spots and provides visual or audible warnings to prevent lane-change accidents.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC): ACC maintains a safe distance from the vehicle ahead by automatically adjusting the vehicle's speed.
  • Parking Assistance: This feature uses sensors and cameras to assist the driver in parking by providing visual and audible cues.

These are just a few examples of the many ADAS features available in modern vehicles. The technology is constantly evolving, with new features being developed to further enhance driver safety.

What do i need to do?

It is important to note that ADAS is designed to assist the driver and not replace their responsibility. Drivers should always remain attentive and in control of the vehicle, even when ADAS features are active.

We recommend considering a 3-year service plan for your vehicle with ADAS. These service plans cover the maintenance and repair of ADAS components, ensuring that the systems remain in optimal condition for accurate and reliable operation.


What happens if i damage my vehicle?

It is vital that the ADAS is checked and calibrated during the repair process of vehicles fitted with this technology. This is why it is important to take your vehicle to an approved repair centre like ourselves who will always undertake this task.
