Changes in the automotive sector leading to new industrial equipment requirements

There are a growing number of new vehicles equipped with driver assistance systems. Autonomous emergency braking, parking assist, intelligent speed assistance, lane departure warnings, pedestrian detection, etc. - ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) don’t just make driving more comfortable, they can also save lives.

The European Union has just issued legislation: following anti-lock braking systems (ABS), electronic stability systems (EPS) and eCall, autonomous emergency braking will be mandatory in new vehicles from 2020.

To respond to this growth, Fives and LET (a specialist in optical calibration and adjustment systems) have joined forces to develop an ADAS bench offer which tests all driver assistance systems and can be integrated seamlessly into the production chain.
