Forward facing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (FF ADAS) are becoming increasingly important, especially as the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) ratings are tied to AEB (Autonomous Emergency Braking) and other important car safety features. Euro NCAP recently announced a new rating scheme for the years 2013 to 2017, which is also driving ADAS trends for players across the automotive market, from tier 1s and manufacturers, to semiconductor suppliers. 

ADAS applications such as AEB and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) will be taken much more strongly into account by 2014, and will be key for achieving a top Euro NCAP 5-star rating, which significantly impacts car manufacturers’ sales rates. Along with AEB and LDW, other features such as Intelligent Highbeam Control (IHC) and Road Sign Detection (RSD) are now integrated on most standard FF ADAS cameras. Low- to mid-range systems of the near future will possess at least some version of AEB (described below), LDW and IHC.
