ADAS or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are a family of protection systems that designed to work jointly to computerize and improve vehicle safety by alerting the driver to apparent problems and stay away from mishap. Driver-assist systems provide clear or visual alerts if they sense a potentially unsafe circumstance and some can even obtain action such as applying the brakes to stay away from a collision or steering a car back into its track.
ADAS is an electronic system in which drive and park vehicle, is developed with by using VTD software. VTD can also be used for developing automated driving systems. VTD provides extent to make 3D content, imitate intricate traffic situation, and simulate easy or physically driven sensors. ADAS uses different electronic technologies analogous to Micro controller units, control semiconductor devices and electronic control units to keep away from human mistake and make up advanced driver support system. At Jawaharlal Nehru Engineering College (JNEC), Autonomous vehicle lab consists of a virtual test drive vehicle setup which helps students to become skilled at design of detailed road and rail networks with numerous lanes as per prerequisite, design a variety of types of intersections as well as signaling system by exporting the required data from single source and create 3d models. VTD offers scope to create 3D content, simulate multifaceted traffic circumstances, and simulate simplified or physically driven sensors. The data collected from the field is used to design road network and traffic simulations. Road networks are designed using Road Network Editor (ROD) which includes number of lanes, different types of intersections, traffic signs and signals.
Various features of ADAS are Driver drowsiness detection, Driver monitoring system, Electric vehicle warning sounds, Emergency driver assistance, Forward collision warning, Anti-lock braking system, Automatic parking, and Blind spot monitor, Lane departure warning system, Rain sensor and Wrong way driving warning.
