Technology is changing the way we operate in a more methodical way that involves algorithms and programs. Vehicles in the future will need to be repaired less and understood more. As ADAS features emerge as standard assistance systems, understanding their functions will become imperative. ADAS features must be repaired correctly or safety systems can become disabled or function improperly and cause dangerous errors.
I know! You might be asking, “With the potential of dangerous errors why even bother?” According to a recent study by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, rear-end collision rates in vehicles with both Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Autonomous Emergency Breaking (AEB) were 46 percent lower than those without these systems. The study also showed that lane departure crashes fell 21 percent for cars with Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Keep Assist (LKA).
Human error is responsible for 94% of all traffic accidents! We can all admit there are a few features we have no idea how to work in our vehicles! FeaturesFirst Auto makes it easy for consumers to connect with the technological features in their vehicle to drive safer and more informed!
