Most vehicles are equipped with Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) to help protect drivers and their surroundings. ADAS features such as lane marking detection, pedestrian warning, and emergency braking were all developed to enable drivers to make better decisions and reduce the number of road fatalities.
However, even though ADAS technology has proven valuable, there is still a lot of significant room for improvement when it comes to road safety. ADAS technology urgently needs better sensors which can assist drivers in the identification of visible and invisible hazards, enabling those advanced systems to better “see” the road and the world around them.
