Introducing the Garage Guide to Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems

30 September 2019

What we know today as ADAS (Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems) has been a feature of vehicles as early as the turn of the 20th century, with cruise control being integrated into the Wilson Pilcher and Peerless.

Further systems came about in the 70s and 80s with ABS and rear parking sensors being introduced by Toyota, and the number of technologies being included in modern vehicles has increased exponentially in the new millennium.

The EU is set to make a number of ADAS technologies mandatory in new vehicles from May 2022, therefore it is more important than ever that technicians are informed and prepared to service and calibrate these systems.

The IGA will be releasing a new instalment in our Garage Guide series, concerning ADAS. The guide will include a brief history of ADAS within vehicles, an overview of the current main technologies and a look to the future of semi-autonomous cars. The guide has been written to help clarify the function and prevalence of ADAS in modern cars, to ensure independent garages are not left behind.

Keep an eye out in the post for your copy of the Garage Guide to Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems, coming very soon. For any further questions or guidance, please call our friendly team on the IGA direct member helpline or 0845 305 4230.
