Driver Assistance Systems
The border between active safety systems and driver assistance systems is becoming more blurred
Driver Assistance Systems are a segment of the safety systems market, generally defined as technologies or groups of technologies that inform or warn the driver of hazards. However, they can also be taken to include a set of systems that integrate active safety systems with driver convenience systems into adaptive cruise control (ACC). Apart from ACC, the current generation of driver assistance systems do not currently make active interventions over the control of the vehicle in the way that, for instance, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) does. However as individual functionalities are integrated, the dividing line between active safety systems and driver assistance systems becomes more blurred.
