Misuse of technologies such as ADAS

Dear Fellow BHPians,

I just came across a video showing a person misusing the ADAS feature in an XUV700. It pains me alot when I see such reckless behaviour by people on the road.

Being a victim of a couple of risky accidents, I feel that such people should be criminally charged.

I am sharing the video link as below. Please share your thoughts on this and also share your experiences if you have noticed something on similar lines.

Video Link :


Note to MODS : Kindly merge / move this post to the relevant section as deemed appropriate. Thanks!

Absolutely irresponsible and MUST be punished. Don't know if the uploader of the video is the one ...errrr... driving. But gosh, how stupid can someone be to be risking everyone's lives like this.

Re: Misuse of technologies such as ADAS

Shouldn't these features work only when there's someone at the wheel? If I'm not mistaken, most of the modern cars have kind of weight sensors (at least) in the driver's seat - which could be used for this purpose.

Yes, they do. But the alert comes after 10 seconds or so. And even after the first alert comes, there's another ~5 second gap when the alert intensifies before ADAS gives up. That's why the video is pretty short. He must have jumped back to the rear seat and jumped back in.

Re: Misuse of technologies such as ADAS

Wow! This is very interesting. So, the only possibility of this happening is that the person does engage ADAS and moves to other seat while the car is moving. I'm of the opinion that the manufacturers shouldn't provide this 10S alert & then intensify it after every 5 seconds. IMO, the ADAS should disengage right when the sensor finds there's no driver on the seat.

Re: Misuse of technologies such as ADAS

Why are we popularizing this video and giving it more traction/ views?

Re: Misuse of technologies such as ADAS

Sheer stupidity on part of the people who even think ADAS is anyway near FSD. While FSD even on advanced vehicles like Tesla are debated.

There have been a number of accidents and fatalities that have been caused by people using ADAS in a reckless manner. For example, in 2018, a man was killed in Arizona when his Tesla crashed into a barrier while he was watching a movie on his phone. In 2020, a woman in Florida was seriously injured when her Tesla crashed into a tree while she was asleep.

There are a number of reasons why using ADAS in a reckless manner is so dangerous. First, ADAS systems are not perfect. They can make mistakes, especially in challenging conditions such as bad weather or heavy traffic. Second, ADAS systems are not designed to handle unexpected events, such as a child running into the road or another vehicle making a sudden lane change. Third, if a driver is not paying attention to the road, they will not be able to react quickly enough if something goes wrong.

The act of creating these videos and sharing them on social media platforms encourages others to follow suit. The allure of likes, shares, and online fame can lead individuals to imitate such reckless behaviour without fully understanding the risks involved. This creates a ripple effect of dangerous actions that can have far-reaching consequences.

These people should be discouraged and should get more dislikes than likes and share. I would rather unsubscribe even if I has subscribed due to a past good video post.

Re: Misuse of technologies such as ADAS

Several of such videos exist on YouTube and more so in Instagram. With more and more vehicles coming with ADAS, expect to see this stupidity increase. I recently saw a couple of videos with the new Seltos also.

Re: Misuse of technologies such as ADAS

This person is selling stupidity. Nothing else.
There is nothing to learn from it and we would not be able to educate them through our discussions. Rather, in my opinion, by sharing such acts here on Team-BHP, we allowing higher visibility for his/her stupidity.
So, I humbly request moderators to close this thread.

Because it's a good reminder of the kind of idiots & stupidity that we share the road with.

Be safe out there, guys . Have fun road-tripping, but be cautious.

Re: Misuse of technologies such as ADAS

The best option is to report them to Youtube and I just did for this video. Also Youtube will stop any revenue earned if the video is found in violation of its community guidelines.

Re: Misuse of technologies such as ADAS

The Instagram reels & YT Shorts world is full is such videos which are influencing the next generation of car drivers. The sad part is once you express interest to 1-2 such videos, the algorithm will make sure you are seeing more of these.

Unacceptable road behaviour as it is dangerous to other road users, should something go wrong!

The manufacturer cannot really be liable or even expected to cover scenarios where the vehicle user is hell bent on being a threat to every road user.
Almost everycar sold today, can easily exceed the max speed limit we have, its on the user to adhere to the speed limit, not the manufacturer to limit it.

Essentially, no manufacturer can cover wilful apathy by user.

True. I think everybody who reads this should go ahead and do this.
