ADAS ROUNDTABLE DELIBERATES ON ROADMAP FOR INDIA
The Mathworks-powered virtual roundtable threw up insights about the challenges and opportunities associated with ADAS

Road fatalities are posing a huge concern across the globe, especially for a country like India that has earned an infamous reputation for registering a significant number of road fatalities. Over the years, efforts have been undertaken by various governments across the globe to mitigate the number of road fatalities by putting in place stringent regulations, but this hasn’t quite helped in mitigating road accidents, especially in the Indian context. And to address this issue of road fatalities, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) has steadily emerged as the most preferred adoption route for the automotive industry to make roads more safer. According to a recent report, more than 92 % of new vehicles in the US have at least one ADAS feature. In the Indian context, the Ministry for Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH) has talked about making ADAS mandatory in all cars by 2022. All these indicate that the auto industry is slowly but surely moving towards adopting ADAS in a bid to minimise if not completely eliminate road fatalities. It is pertinent to mention that the IT industry is contributing heavily to the development of ADAS systems for global automotive players. However, the adoption of ADAS in India still calls for careful consideration from domestic OEMs. Additionally, the COVID-19 crisis has caused economic and social disruptions prompting vehicle manufacturers to extend development cycles for various systems.
