Driving Safety With Intelligent Vehicles

What is an Intelligent Vehicle?

An intelligent vehicle is a vehicle that uses technology such as sensors, artificial intelligence, communication, and control systems to enhance its functions and capabilities. These vehicles can process information about their environments and react accordingly. During recent years, intelligent vehicles have grown in both popularity and effectiveness. According to a study performed by Statista, in 2025, around 63% of vehicles sold will have advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Considering these facts and predictions, we’ve prepared an introduction to intelligent vehicles. Here you will find driving tips as well as information on the features that define intelligent vehicles.

What systems go into an Intelligent Vehicle?

In upcoming years, students will likely have access to Intelligent Vehicle (IV) technologies. These vehicles are equipped Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), which consist of technologies designed to assist drivers. These technologies include Driver Status Monitoring Systems (DSM), Electron Stability Control (ESC), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), and others to help make the driver's driving experience safer and more enjoyable. Our simple guide will help students understand and use these features, along with other IV features, to their full potential. With these intelligent features, our students can rest assured that their vehicles are equipped with the latest safety technologies and are ready for the roads.

Driver Status Monitoring (DSM) System

Driver Status Monitoring Systems, or DSM for short, are used to monitor the alertness of the vehicle's driver. These systems monitor how alert and awake the driver is, especially at high speeds, in order to prevent dangerous errors such as unintentional lane departures. (Source)


Electronic Stability Control

Electronic Stability Control prevents a vehicle from sliding from a sharp turn by adjusting the throttle of the engine and the brakes on the wheels to keep the vehicle stable and all four wheels on the ground. (Source)

Emergency Braking

Emergency Braking automatically applies the brakes to the wheels when sensors detect that a driver is not applying brakes hard enough or at all when a collision is imminent. (Source)


Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control is a part of ADAS that uses sensors to measure and keep a safe distance away from the cars in front and behind the vehicle. The speed of the intelligent vehicle is adjusted automatically for this purpose. (Source)
