This brochure introduces the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Accelerating the Adoption of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Program, Tech-Celerate Now. Tech-Celerate Now explores the safety potential and adoption factors for four types of ADAS technologies, examining ways that the trucking industry can increase deployment of these promising safety tools.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) new initiative in partnership with the ITS Joint Program Office — entitled “Accelerating the Adoption of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)” and referred to under the project brand name “Tech-Celerate Now” — is focused on accelerating the adoption of ADAS by the trucking industry to reduce fatalities and prevent injuries and crashes. The ADAS technology performance areas addressed by “TechCelerate Now” include monitoring systems, warning systems, braking systems, and steering systems.
