Should India Make ADAS Mandatory In All Cars Before Embracing Self Driving Cars

August 19,2019

The India Automobile Industry is gearing up to adopt electric mobility and the scion of EV Elon Musk has already hinted that he might launch Tesla’s first car in the country by next year. The big question is that is India also ready for the next natural step of adopting self-driving cars. The challenges for India is the conditions of roads, traffic congestions and movement of stray animals on the road.

It is quite natural that with the advent of 5G technology, the world is going to change forever in terms of speed and accuracy. This new technology will boost the chances of self-driving technology. The point is that with the developed countries focusing on the self-driving car as the next big thing in the automobile industry, is India ready with its existing road infrastructure and huge traffic population to adopt this new technology.

The self-driving cars make driving safe and this is the fundamental assumption that is driving the R&D investments in this space. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is supposed to help drivers avoid accidents made due to human error. The technology takes care of basic human errors to eliminate accidents by providing advanced information on crash avoidance, satellite traffic warning, lane departure warning, alert of blind spots, etc. Currently, the Luxury car segment comes equipped with much-advanced safety features like anti-lock braking system (ABS), Electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), Cruise Control, Advanced Automatic Collision system, Lane assists, Parking assists, etc. which is a primary requirement for moving towards 100% self-driving technology.

The industry experts views that if ADAS is made mandatory on each and every car then the all the cars will have the capability of communicating with each other to control speed and turns resulting in safer commuting on roads. It would be the first step before going for the adoption of self-driving cars on Indian roads.
