Driving aids are present in a large number of cars. This article tells you more about them and presents their advantages.Driving aids (ADAS) were once present in high-end cars. But they are now also found on some entry-level vehicles. Intended to make driving more comfortable and secure, it is even difficult for some drivers to do without them now.
Driving assistance: These are simple systems such as the power steering found on all cars these days and more complex systems such as a radar that helps maintain safety distances.
What Are The Advantages?
Driving aids have many advantages for the driver and passengers, other drivers, and pedestrians. Among these advantages are:
More comfort: this is the case, for example, of the reversing radar, which emits a sound when one approaches too close to an obstacle, or even space detection sensors which make it possible to calculate whether a space is spacious enough to park your vehicle.
More safety: this is the case, for example, of emergency braking assistance or even detectors that detect a possible state of drowsiness on the driver’s part.
Increase driving pleasure: the aim is to make driving easier for those behind the wheel. We are particularly thinking of hill start assistance or even lane keeping assistance when the car crosses certain lines.
The Traffic Jam Driver
The PSA group developed this system and makes life easier in traffic jams. The condition for benefiting from it is to drive at a speed of less than 50-70 km. In a traffic jam, it makes it possible to delegate driving to the car, which will travel independently and adapt the speed to the traffic according to the limits in force and also reduce speed when it encounters speedbumps. This prevents the driver from getting tired when driving becomes monotonous. And we know that there are still too many accidents in traffic jams.
