Reaching Zero Crashes, A Dialogue on the Role of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, a one day event held by the National Transportation Safety Board in Washington D.C., brought together transportation safety leaders from across the country. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) have been around for decades starting with antilock brakes, and have now evolved to include automatic braking systems. The newest ADAS include blind spot detection, adaptive headlights, frontal collision warnings, driver alert control, and adaptive cruise control among others. The commonality that all these systems share is increased roadway safety for all road users.
