Automotive safety technology is pretty easy to wrap your head around, but advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are a little harder to pin down.
The issue is that advanced driver assistance systems are systems and features that provide a driver with essential information, automate difficult or repetitive tasks, with the goal of engendering an overall increase in car safety for everyone on the road. Since these systems are so varied, it isn’t always easy to see how some of them actually relate to safety.
Many advanced driver assistance systems are right on the bleeding edge of emerging automotive technologies, and the jury is actually still out on some of them.
ADAS systems that are currently being delivered to the market in Australia include:
• blind spot monitoring
• adaptive cruise control
• following distance warning
• lane keep assist
• lane departure warning
• adaptive headlights
• fatigue warning, and
• traffic-jam assist

ABS Split Surface Demonstration/Participation
The purpose of the Split Surface Braking demonstration is to showcase the ability of ABS to provide stability of the vehicle during heavy braking.
The split surface provides the most dramatic demonstration of stability as the vehicle is subjected to ABS operation on our split surface which simulates ice.
AEB – Autonomous Emergency Braking System Demonstration/Participation
Autonomous emergency braking systems are designed to detect an imminent crash and prevent a crash or at the least mitigate the damage in an event of a crash.
The system first alerts the driver about the imminent collision and if the driver does not take any action to prevent it, the system automatically applies brakes.
Many people already know this, however our demonstration allows participants to experience how the system works – in a safe (and fun) experience.
