Nesting of under the acronym ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems in English) , these systems ranging from the braking autonomous emergency with pedestrian detection, the detection dead angle or the detection system of fatigue, the alert involuntary change and lane, the active maintenance in the lane, the traffic alert rear cross or the recognition of traffic signals.
But not always, these systems are well received by the drivers, which in a high percentage assure them disconnected on a timely basis or disable them completely. According to the study 2019 by J. D. Power, more than 60% claimed to disable this type of technology completely.
The survey collects the opinions of 20,000 american drivers with model year 2019, with cars that had 38 different technologies and had been used or purchased in the last 90 days prior to the completion of the study.
