Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) provide drivers with active safety support features.

Vehicles on UK roads are now commonly fitted with a wide variety of ADAS offering features with increasingly sophisticated capability.

The increase of ADAS features that support safety critical systems such as braking and steering, make the proper and effective function of ADAS ever more safety critical.

The functions of ADAS features rely on sensors that continuously and accurately monitor the environment around the vehicle, making these sensors a safety-critical aspect of any repair process.

What are examples of ADAS features?

Autonomous Emergency Braking

Traffic Sign Recognition

Adaptive Cruise Control

Blind Spot detection

Lane Keep Assistance

Cross Traffic Detection

Remote Active Park Assist

Adaptive Headlamps

Thatcham Research is focused on vehicle safety. Ensuring the safe repair of a vehicle after an accident is paramount.

The launch of the Insurance Industry Requirements for the Safe Repair of ADAS equipped vehicles (IIR) is an important step towards the long-term sustainability of ADAS technology and ensures its benefits can be realised throughout the vehicle’s lifetime.

The IIR is a strong commitment to the principle of safe repair, borne out of wide-ranging industry collaboration. Thatcham Research would like to recognise contributions made to the development of the IIR, including investment of time, training and loan of calibration equipment by companies such as Hella Gutman Solutions, Autel UK, Texa UK Ltd, MAHLE and Robert Bosch Ltd.

The IIR provides requirements and guidance which assists organisations to understand and implement those requirements. However, Thatcham Research does not provide endorsement to any workshop, diagnostic or calibration equipment.

Any statements claiming or implying such certification or endorsement should not influence any investment decisions in such equipment.
