ADAS Overview And Common Failure Points

ADAS Overview And Common Failure Points

Despite how advanced these systems are, sometimes something simple can interfere.

Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) are designed to reduce traffic injuries and fatalities, as well as warn the driver of dangers that they may not be able to see.

These advanced safety systems are able to automatically apply the brakes, keep the vehicle in its lane of travel and detect pedestrians or other hazards on the road.

Despite how advanced these systems are, sometimes something simple can interfere. A dirty camera lens or radar emitter can produce a faulty reading. Improper calibration could cause the brakes to be applied when there is no danger, or the system could fail to intervene when it is needed most. Collision damage isn’t always detectable from the outside. If a sensor becomes dislodged behind a bumper cover, it won’t be able to do its job effectively.

Choosing the Right Motor Oil

Learn why choosing the right motor oil is crucial for modern vehicles with turbocharging and direct injection technology.

For most people, purchasing a vehicle is the second largest investment they will ever make. Keeping up with the oil and filter changes based on the recommended service intervals is perhaps the most important thing they can do to protect their investment. Today's motor oils are far more complex than they were years ago when you poured the oil out of a can. So are today's vehicles. As vehicle manufacturers continue to look for ways to meet federal emissions and fuel economy standards, many OEMs have turned to technologies such as turbocharging and direct injection to squeeze more power and efficiency out of smaller displacement engines. While these engines have fewer cylinders than the mainstream vehicles of yesteryear, they also operate under higher pressures and temperatures compared to traditionally, naturally aspirated engines, and that creates additional demands for today's motor oil. That's why motor oil today is often blended to meet the needs of a specific manufacturer or even a specific engine.
