The Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) uses image processing cameras, radar, light detection and ranging and other sensors to monitor vehicle surroundings and detect potentially dangerous situations. Purpose: to increase safety through advanced situational awareness and reduce collision possibilities.
Sensors used in ADAS include cameras, radars, lasers and ultrasound. They can detect light, heat, pressure and other variables used to monitor the state of vehicle. Usually they locate in the front and rear bumpers, side mirrors, vehicle cab and wind shield glasses.
