Why have an ADAS system?
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is an active safety system on a vehicle that sends warnings to the driver when it identifes situations such as impending collisions and accidents. It also helps to promote safer and better driving such as identifying potential hazards, road conditions and vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists.
About the system
The Safety Shield ADAS was developed to enhance vehicle safety and improve driver behaviour. The system uses an intelligent mono camera to monitor road conditions ahead and calculates if there are any potential collisions or lane departures through computer based detection algorithms.
The system consists of a strategically placed single forward-facing vision sensor which acts as a driver’s third eye, constantly monitoring the dynamic driving environment and providing drivers with real-time visual and audible alerts as the risk of an imminent collision increases. The system also fully records onto SD card and phone app.
installation & calibration
The Safety Shield ADAS has been designed so that the installation and calibration can be carried out easily and quickly without the need for a specialist installer. The installation will take approximately thirty minutes hard wired or can be installed via plug and play. The calibration is carried out using the phone app and only takes 10 minutes max.
Pedestrian and Cyclist Collision Warning -
Pedestrians and cyclists are the most vulnerable road users, and are less likely to be identified by drivers. Safety Shield ADAS scans the road in front of the vehicle and will alert the driver with visual and audio warning before imminent collision with a pedestrian, cyclist or motorcycle.
Lane Departure Warning -
Safety Shield ADAS always keeps an eye on the lane where your car should be and alarms when your car is leaving its lane. Sensitivity levels are adjustable.
Forward Collision Warning -
To prevent forward collisions in both urban, motorway and all other environments, the Safety Shield ADAS system constantly scans the front of the vehicle to detect anything that may be in its path, including pedestrians and cyclists. If anything is detected and a collision is imminent, the system visually and audibly warns the driver.
Headway Monitoring Warning –
This feature helps drivers maintain a safe distance between them and the vehicle in front. If the vehicle ahead suddenly brakes, it’s vital that there’s enough of a gap to be able to safely slow down or, if necessary, stop. As well as providing a precise indication of the required stopping distance, the system also gives a visual and audible warning when the gap between vehicles becomes unsafe.
Speed Limit Warning -
Regardless of what roads they are travelling on, the system keeps the driver informed of the maximum speed limit that applies and alerts them should this be exceeded.
dash cam recording function -
Unlike other ADAS systems, the Safety Shield ADAS also fully records the driving environment onto an SD card and phone app. This function can also significantly reduce insurance premiums.
