Accelerating the Adoption of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)

Project Goal:

To expedite the adoption of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) by the trucking industry because of their demonstrated potential to reduce fatalities, injuries and crashes.

Background:

FMCSA is committed to accelerating the deployment of ADAS technologies in four categories: Active Braking Systems (automatic emergency braking, air disc brakes, adaptive cruise control) Active Steering Systems (lane keep assist, lane centering, adaptive steering control) Active Warning Systems (lane departure, forward collision, blind spot detection) and Camera Monitoring Systems (in-cab facing driver training, forward facing event recording, side rear-view for mirrors) on Class 7 and 8 commercial motor vehicles.

Summary:

Effective deployment of these systems will require a national outreach campaign, which will include the development of: 1) outreach materials for fleets to implement ADAS, and 2) training materials for drivers and maintenance personnel related to ADAS operation, inspection, maintenance, and troubleshooting. Other major tasks will include the identification of technical and market barriers, data collection and analysis, and stakeholder reporting.
