The development of new, more sophisticated ADAS functions, and in the future fully or partly autonomous driving systems, promise huge benefits for car users and for society – smoothing traffic flow, the aim of reduced number of accidents in which the driver is at fault, and making road travel more enjoyable. Safety must always come first. ADAS technology requires the driver to stay alert and focused on the road. By introducing the first system for hands-on detection which cannot be fooled, and which works in all driving conditions, ams has made a huge contribution to the safety of the next generation of ADAS-equipped vehicles.
