Engineers design Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) to make driving safer, but recent traffic crash data shows they may pose safety risks. This is especially the case for drivers who have not received behind-the-wheel training on the best strategies for using ADAS.

Reading, Seeing, Doing
As vehicles become more sophisticated with advanced driver assist systems (ADAS), drivers are falling further behind in understanding how these systems perform, or even worse, have ill-conceived notions of how these systems function. In hindsight it seems, the better the technology becomes; the worse drivers get. However, we can’t be that surprised knowing how little training most individuals have received on this topic. Safety researchers continue to issue warnings about the lack of training and because of this, repeatedly emphasize how ADAS will never live up to its full potential.

As artificial intelligence continues to evolve, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) features for fleets improve. But for fleet managers, the first step to implement ADAS is not just looking at the technology, but at their drivers.
