Current Challenges with ADAS & Where It's Headed Next

Exponent Hosts Complimentary Webinar on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

April 24, 2024
10:00AM - 11:30AM PDT
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Research and Training

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), ranging from potential crash mitigation to hands-free operation, and automated driving systems (ADS), which provide higher levels of autonomy, are developing rapidly and revolutionizing the transportation industry.

With this rapid development comes many benefits — as well as key challenges. In this webinar, Exponent's multidisciplinary experts will discuss the status of ADAS features, ranging from alerts and warning systems to intervention and prevention features, including hands-free systems, and look at the future of ADAS as the industry moves to more advanced features such as driver monitoring, intersection crash mitigation, and more advanced vulnerable road user (VRU) features.

Join moderator Chris Monk, Ph.D., together with Mario Maiorana and James Williamson to learn more about the fundamentals of ADAS technologies, their evolving deployment and implementation, and potential impacts on your business.

Key Takeaways

  • Regulatory Developments: Learn how recent changes in the regulatory landscape impact design standards and liability concerns.
  • System Limitations: Understand the fundamentals of ADAS technologies and how technical challenges can impact vehicle performance, driver experience, and feature acceptance.
  • Driver Attention: Explore the growing area of driver state monitoring, including impaired, drowsy, and inattentive driver detection, and how these are impacting the development of ADAS features and overall driver engagement through the lens of human factors.
  • Crash Statistics: Survey various types of pre-crash scenarios, the current and developing features being used to prevent crashes, and where to find crash data.
