Obstacle Detection

Obstacle Detection

This ADAS feature is similar to and uses similar technologies to reactive cruise control. It senses slow-moving or stationary objects ahead of the vehiclle, usually when driving at low speeds. Some of these systems will then just alert you with a flashing command to brake the vehicle, and an audible warning, sometimes coupled with a vibration at the steering wheel, and/or a vibration in the drivers seat.

Some systems go beyond the warning stage and may proactively brake the vehicle, lightly or completely stop to avoid a collision.
