Adaptive cruise control to keep a set distance behind the driver in front. Emergency Brake Assist and Pedestrian Protection stops the car if it senses danger before you do. Lane keep assist where sensors detect road markings and hold the vehicle in its lane on a highway. Blind-spot monitoring for vehicles we cannot see in the mirrors. Automatic lane change features when indicators are activated on a highway.
All of these ADAS technologies have a host of data points from sensors, RADAR, LIDAR and camera systems. Vehicle ECUs have to process in real time and communicate using high-speed data connections. This data can be transmitted to central servers to which fleet managers and owners can access.
Data points are captured when ADAS features have to step in and take over driver controls. This could indicate unsafe driving for an employee. Where incidents may need reporting and can aid fleet managers by offering safety tips for their drivers based on ADAS data points.
Using mobile data networks users can remotely access the history of a vehicle’s ADAS activations. Working out trends on how drivers perform and providing a safety score and incentives for driving safely.
Insurance providers can utilise ADAS vehicle data to calculate policyholders driving ability, offering a lower price for safer driving.
Governments can identify hotspots in cities and on highways. Common places where ADAS technologies are activated may result in unsafe infrastructure for people to drive in. This can save accidents and lives if they are identified and fixed.
