Driver Assistance

Safety is the number 1 priority in driving. Helvoet plays a role in reducing the number of casualties from traffic accidents. The use of electronic control systems has developed rapidly in the past ten years. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are systems to help the driver in its driving process.

If the systems are well designed and functioning failure free it increases safety when driving the car. Examples of such a system are:

Adaptive Cruise Control
These systems use either a radar or laser sensor setup allowing the vehicle to slow when approaching another vehicle ahead and accelerate again to the preset speed when traffic allows.

Collision Avoidance System
A collision avoidance system is a system of sensors that is placed within a car to warn its driver of any dangers that may lie ahead on the road
The heart of the radar systems is a very precise rotating drum manufactured of a thermoset material and coated with a silver layer for optimal reflection. These Radar Parts are manufactured at Helvoet’s manufacturing plant in Lommel, Belgium.
