What is ADAS?

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are a number of systems that aid a driver while driving. They are intended to increase car safety and more generally road safety.


What is Thinkware’s ADAS?

Our ADAS is comprised of Front Vehicle Departure Warning, Front Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Warning.

ADAS is a premium feature and is only available on the F800/F800PRO, X700 and Q800PRO. The X700 is the only dash cam that gives users visual ADAS notifications along with the standard audio notifications, thanks to it’s 2.7″ LCD Display.
