What Is The Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)?
Advancements in technology have allowed vehicle manufacturers to push the envelope in innovation when it comes to car designs. From mainstay features such as cruise control and auto lock to the trendy rear-view camera and proximity sensor, new cars are consistently manufactured with these features in mind. Manufacturers have utilized technology to make driving safer and easier, and that’s what the ADAS systems strive to do.
Due to their design, ADAS systems need a particular set of tools and guidelines to be properly maintained and repaired. Fortunately for you, that’s where Colket Automotive can help.

What Features Are Available?
The main purpose of the ADAS system is to make driving safer and easier. There are a variety of features that contribute to the overarching goal, but only a few of them have become commonplace in today’s vehicle designs. Sure, lane detection and automatic parking are neat, but many vehicles do not possess these features yet. We’re talking about innovative features that most vehicle owners can expect when they purchase a new vehicle. Here are a few we’ve seen come through our facility.
Many of us rely on GPS apps on our phones to help us navigate the roads. Before then, some of us had to use MapQuest or just a plain old map. It’s crazy how times have changed, huh? Vehicle owners can now expect GPS Navigation systems to be equipped with their vehicles. This saves the hassle of having to constantly look away from the road to look at directions. Some systems even share live traffic data!
Tire Pressure Monitor
In the past, vehicle owners could only monitor the PSI of their tires by visiting gas stations with tire pressure stations or a local auto shop. Technology has made that easier, as many vehicles are now built in with a monitor that you can view on your dashboard. This allows drivers to know when the tire pressure is low from the comfort of their driver seat!
