Confusing ADAS feature names: Proposal to unify terms across all brands

The names used to describe the features currently vary across the industry, which creates confusion for consumers.

BHPian sarathlal recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

AAA along with Consumer Reports, J.D. Power, National Safety Council, PAVE, and SAE International released a set of expanded and updated recommendations for universal terms for advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) features. This is an attempt to standardise and unify ADAS technology-related term usages primarily because most new vehicles are equipped with numerous advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The names used to describe them across the industry, however, varies greatly, which creates confusion for consumers.

The six overarching categories of ADAS are:

  • Collision warning
  • Collision intervention
  • Driving control assistance
  • Parking assistance
  • Driver monitoring
  • Other driver assistance systems
  • Driver monitoring

Recommendation details for each of the above categories are as follows:
