Driving aids - definition


Driving aids, also known as "advanced driver-assistance systems" or ADAS, are groups of electronic technologies that assist drivers in driving.

Through a safe human-machine interface, these aids increase car and road safety. They use automated technology, such as sensors and cameras, to detect nearby obstacles or driver errors, and respond accordingly. Driving aids are developed to automate, adapt, and enhance vehicle technology for safety and better driving.

Safety features are designed to avoid accidents and collisions by offering technologies that alert the driver to problems, implement safeguards, and take control of the vehicle if necessary. Adaptive features may automate lighting, provide adaptive cruise control, assist in avoiding collisions, incorporate satellite navigation and traffic warnings, alert drivers to possible obstacles, assist in lane departure and lane centering, and automatically limit speed based on the speed limit of the road.

Our spec pages list which driving aid technologies specific EV models incorporate. Note that some or all of these may be optional paid extras.
