There is an increasing need to study and understand the safety benefits and potential limitations of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.
In 2020, an estimated 2.3 million people were injured in traffic crashes, and 38,824 people were killed on our nation’s roadways.
Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving systems (ADS) in motor vehicles hold the potential to reduce traffic crashes, prevent serious injuries, and save thousands of lives on our roadways each year.
Given the growing rate at which auto manufacturers are equipping vehicles with ADAS, there is an increasing need to study and understand the safety benefits and potential limitations of these technologies. This analysis explores the real-world effectiveness of ADAS features in avoiding system-relevant crashes.
