Safety and Regulatory Considerations of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), by Iiona D. Scully, Ph.D., Sean Scally, Ryan Clark, Esq., Lewis, Michael R. Carey, Esq., David M. Cades, Ph.D., and Ryan J. Harrington, M.E. - Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) technologies are becoming increasingly available on new vehicles. These systems, such as forward-collision warning (FCW) and automatic emergency braking (AEB), are designed to provide warnings and/ or features that assist the driver with the driving task. One estimate in the U.S. market suggests that as of May 2018, at least one ADAS feature was available on approximately 92% of all new vehicles.1 These ADAS features are designed to enhance the safety and/or convenience of driving, but are not meant to be a replacement for the driver. With the growing rate of adoption of these technologies, there will be an increased need to investigate and understand ADAS technologies. It is important, in that context, to additionally consider the evolving safety and regulatory impact of and on these technologies more broadly.
