Beyond ABS and ESC, both of which are profiting from government legislation, Adaptive cruise control is the most adopted ADAS, followed by Lane departure warning and Forward collision warning. A lot of OEMs have made Collision mitigation systems as standard fitment on their on-highway models. Collision mitigation system can reduce an accident severity by more than 90%.This is one of the prime reasons why it has seen such wide adoption of late. Lane departure warning and forward collision warning don`t offer the same amount of value addition as collision mitigation system. Therefore they are lagging behind.
The adoption of ADAS will become even more important in future, as we inch closer to autonomous trucks. The commercial and safety benefits of autonomous trucks are too big to be ignored and there is no doubt that ADAS can play a pivotal role in getting there.
As we all know the idea of autonomous trucks is getting popular with every passing day but to some, it might seem far-fetched and that’s where the concept of truck platooning comes in. The idea of getting goods delivered by four trucks but utilizing only one driver in the lead vehicle is actually an irresistible proposition. It might also act as a bridge between the drivered truck and driverless truck, just the way we are moving to pure electric vehicles using hybrids as a bridge. The platoon enabled by ADAS in class 8 truck could be driven on the arrow straight Interstate highways of the US and drivers can be used to navigate them into the cities before reaching the end of the trip. It will also take care of the safety angle involved in these high-value vehicles.

There is an industry-wide problem of truck drivers suffering from a bad image and low wages which is proving to be extremely difficult to overcome.Many trucking companies have started working on driver`s feedback extensively to make the truck cabin more comfortable to ensure higher job satisfaction. This is one of the reasons why uptake of optional ADAS technologies has gone up in recent times.
