On March 31, 2014,the US Department of Transportationís National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced that it will require all new vehicles under 10,000 pounds to have rear view cameras by May 2018.

However, these new ADAS systems employ not just cameras, but two different types of RADAR, LIDAR, ultrasound and facial recognition technology to look for drowsy drivers.

Examples of ADAS system
Adaptive cruise control (ACC)
Glare-free high beam and pixel light
Adaptive light control: swivelling curve lights
Automatic parking
Automotive navigation system with typically GPS and TMC for providing up-to-date traffic information.
Automotive night vision
Blind spot monitor
Collision avoidance system (Precrash system)
Crosswind stabilization
Cruise control
Driver drowsiness detection
Driver Monitoring System
Electric vehicle warning sounds used in hybrids and plug-in electric vehicles
Emergency driver assistant
Forward Collision Warning
Intersection assistant
Hill descent control
Intelligent speed adaptation or intelligent speed advice (ISA)
Lane departure warning system
Lane change assistance
Night Vision
Parking sensor
Pedestrian protection system
Rain sensor
Surround View system
Tire Pressure Monitoring
Traffic sign recognition
Turning assistant
Vehicular communication systems
Wrong-way driving warning

Does anyone here own a vehicle with some or all of these ADAS systems.

I think we all have cruise, though I have only ridden in not driven with adaptive.
I have hill decent control, tried it in the dry and it just slams the brakes. Will try again in snow, I live near a huge hill.

Tucker Torpedo had the swivel lights in the 1940s.

At what point are cars totally idiot-proof?

Cruise control was introduced in some models just after WWII. Adaptive cruise control (ACC) systems automatically adjusts the vehicle speed to maintain a safe distance from vehicles ahead. In some form ACC has existed for 25 years, and radar assisted ACC was introduced in 1999 by Mercedes. The Mercedes system, Distronic, was available on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class (W220) and the CL-Class.


ACC has only become popular in recent years, with Ford introducing ACC for the F150 in 2015.

I've got the tire pressure monitoring. It has proven itself useful several times over the years

Just more things that will break down
and be useless 6 years after you buy
the car. Too expensive to fix, but fun
while they lasted.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

They don't seem fun, but they seem to take over most driving decisions. You are almost at the self driving car where the person is the emergency over-ride.

How many people have we all talked to that had a system warning indicator that stays on all the time and the mechanic told them to just ignore it? I agree with Bob that all that stuff are things to break down too; we'll have to fix some of them and some of them we'll live with broken.

Besides cruise control [standard since maybe late 80s?] I do have tire pressure monitoring and rear-view camera on one vehicle.
