An advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) (also called advanced driver assist system) is/are

primarily focused on collision avoidance technologies (for example, lane departure warning and blind-spot applications) and driver aids, such as night vision, driver alertness and adaptive cruise control. ADAS offerings are primarily built into the vehicle, but vendors are beginning to offer aftermarket solutions. Next-generation ADASs will increasingly leverage wireless network connectivity to offer improved value (by using car-to-car data).[1]
[s]ystems designed to help drivers with certain driving tasks (e.g., staying in the lane, parking, avoiding collisions, reducing blind spots, and maintaining a safe headway). ADAS are generally designed to improve safety or reduce the workload on the driver. With respect to automation, some ADAS features could be considered SAE Level 1 or Level 2, but many are Level 0 and may provide alerts to the driver with little or no automation.[2]
