Work truck fleets look toward advanced vehicle technologies, including ADAS, to reduce accidents and associated costs. Check out what a few of our subject-matter experts had to say when looking toward the future of this newer technology.

  • “Some say that ADAS technologies are paving the way for autonomous vehicles. The deployment of sensors to gather information about a vehicle’s immediate environment is a crucial first step for self-driving vehicles. Once ADAS technologies start to intervene actively, either by slowing down the vehicle with automated braking or helping the driver steer using lane-keep assistance, they begin to shift into the first stage of autonomous vehicle development. I think two additional areas of innovation to watch include vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) communication.” – Gary Johnson, director of Risk and Compliance Management, Lytx
  • “The introduction of new features combined with the maturity of existing features will result in a vehicle that edges closer to autonomous operation.” – Mark Chung, vice president, roadway practice, National Safety Council
  • “There are a variety of studies that indicate many of the safety benefits originally tied to the self-driving vehicle have already been realized with the advancement of safety systems categorized as ‘ADAS.’ While delayed, there is still significant investment being made in realizing the ‘self-driving vehicle’ — which will require the continued evolution of ADAS features and components. I believe ADAS is forever part of the new driving experience.” – Ben Johnson, director of product management, Mitchell1
  • “ADAS is here to stay and will continue to develop, support, and improve vehicle safety. Autonomous features and vehicles are the future." – Isuzu Spokesperson
  • "The capabilities of advanced driver-assistance systems are constantly improving. As they do, the line separating ADAS from full self-driving is rapidly blurring into a spectrum of capabilities.” – Mobileye spokesperson
