Lane departure warning system
Lane departure doesn’t always lead to accidents, but statistics show that it happens often and is extremely risky when there are other cars nearby. With a lane departure system, a warning sound will be set off each time your car moves off the lane without a turn signals on.
Automatic emergency braking (AEB) system
An AEB detects when a potential crash is about to occur. It will then alert you to respond appropriately. If no actions are taken, an emergency brake will be automatically applied, in an attempt to prevent the crash. A lighter version of the AEB is the forward-collision warning system. This system only monitors the distance between your vehicle and the one in front, warning you of appropriate and safe vehicle following distance.
Adaptive cruise control
Cruise control keeps your car at a consistent speed, allowing you to rest your feet when driving long distances. Recently, newer versions called adaptive cruise control or dynamic cruise control have been introduced into the automotive industry. This newer autopilot system will adjust the speed of your car to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead.
Pedestrian automatic emergency braking (PAEB) system
Much like the AEB mentioned above, the PAEB is also an automatic emergency braking system. This system is used to identify pedestrians on the road and automatically brake if the driver has not performed the appropriate corrective action.
What Does This Have to do with my New Windscreen?
The sensing devices involved in ADAS are typically mounted behind the windscreen, including cameras, computer imaging software, radars, and more. Therefore, any damage to your windscreen or a full windscreen replacement should undoubtedly require ADAS to get checked and recalibrated.
