Tata Motors vehicles are known for safety. The company recently launched the Red Dark Edition of its Nexon, Harrier and Safari. In Harrier and Safari, the company has added the next level safety feature Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS). To explain this feature, Tata has shared a video of 3.41 minutes on YouTube.
The video shows the functions of all Adas features like forward collision warning, rear collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, blind spot detection, door open alert, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane change alert, high beam assist and traffic sign recognition The way to do it has been told. Let's know how Aedas works...
For the ADAS feature, the car is equipped with forward collision warning sensors, these sensors help the vehicle to detect its surroundings and automatically indicate when some danger is near. Forward Collision Warning alerts the driver when the vehicle in front is approaching but your car is likely to collide. This sensor calculates the distance between the two vehicles and their speed.
The emergency braking alert is triggered when the system detects a problem in front while driving. There may be a moving vehicle or a pedestrian in front. When this happens it triggers an audio alert to the system driver. It also helps in bringing the vehicle to a complete stop to avoid a collision.
This feature is very useful while switching lanes. This feature gives an audio alert on the ORVM's while changing lanes. This lets the driver know about the vehicle coming from any side.
This feature is very useful for any vehicle in the dark on the highway. When a vehicle coming from the opposite direction is detected, the car automatically switches on the low beam, so that the other driver does not have trouble seeing. The headlights switch back to high beam as the vehicle passes.
This sensor helps the occupants of the car to avoid a situation where opening the door may affect the oncoming traffic. If someone is trying to get off the vehicle, the alarm is triggered.
This ADAS feature comes in handy when trying to park a vehicle in a crowded parking place. This feature alerts the driver. A vehicle's rear camera can only detect what is immediately behind the car.
This feature helps the system to read road signs like speed limit and alerts the driver. To control the speed, the driver can easily see the speed limit alert on the display.
This feature will mostly work on those roads and highways where the lane marking is clear. The system detects the lane used by the vehicle and will alert the driver if the car deviates from its lane.
