What is a Dash Cam with ADAS and GPS?
nearly 93% of car accidents are caused by human error
In modern society, car accidents have become a common occurrence. According to statistics, nearly 93% of car accidents are caused by human error, with distracted driving being one of the main reasons. However, thanks to technological innovation, car manufacturers have begun adding a feature called Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), aimed at preventing distracted driving and avoiding accidents on the road.
What is ADAS?
It is a system designed to issue warnings to drivers in critical road situations. It uses artificial intelligence to monitor the vehicle's surroundings, detect potential threats, and provide real-time notifications to keep the driver alert and cautious.
Although modern vehicles typically come equipped with ADAS, some dash cams incorporate these features to ensure no driver falls behind, making any vehicle safer on the road and calibrated to your specific vehicle. However, not all dash cams come with ADAS, which is an advanced safety feature usually found only in premium dash cameras like YUWEI;s AI DASH CAM.
What are the types of ADAS?
ADAS offers many different functions, which can vary depending on the system that provides them. In YUWEI dash cameras, you can disable or enable the following common features:
Forward Collision Warning
When you come to a complete stop, this feature sends a signal indicating that the vehicle ahead has started moving, helping you stay with the flow of traffic.
Lane Departure Warning System
This system monitors the vehicle;s position in the lane and issues a warning if the driver unintentionally drifts out of the lane without using a turn signal. This is an important feature to prevent accidents caused by distracted or fatigued driving. Many lane departure warning systems have a minimum speed limit, so they only work at higher speeds.
Front Collision Warning System (FCWS)
This system warns the driver when the distance between the driver and the vehicle ahead is too close.
Rear Collision Warning System
The radar-based rear collision warning system in YUWEI dual-channel dash cams acts as a second set of eyes on the back, helping to prevent rear-end accidents. If a vehicle is approaching from behind and the system determines that an accident may occur, it will help notify the driver that a vehicle is approaching.
Safety Camera Alerts
The dash cam also comes equipped with safety camera alert systems. These systems use GPS data and camera position integrated databases to provide real-time warnings to drivers as they approach intersections with red light cameras and other traffic enforcement cameras. It is highly recommended for drivers who frequently operate in unfamiliar areas such as fleets to use this feature.
Some ADAS systems can also provide further warnings, such as fatigue warnings. When a person has been driving for a long time, the dash cam will tell them how many hours they have been driving and urge them to take a short break.
What are the requirements to activate ADAS?
To activate ADAS, the dash cam requires specific features. Some ADAS functions, especially those related to speed and location, rely on GPS data. Therefore, you must ensure that your dash cam has a GPS module. In conclusion, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is a powerful safety feature that can greatly reduce the risk of accidents and improve driver safety and comfort.
How much does an ADAS camera cost?
A single ordinary car-mounted camera from YUWEI costs $25, while ADAS cameras are relatively more expensive. Please contact us (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) to get a quote.
