What does Thinkware's ADAS feature do?

There's not a lot of dashcams out there that include an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS for short), so we here at Dashoto thought it might be helpful to go over the feature and how it all works.

While the software isn't perfect, it's a great feature for Thinkware to include.

Of course, if you already have all these features built into your vehicle you can disable ADAS completely.

Here's a simple overview and where to find the settings for each feature.

 

Lane Departure Warning

Detects if the vehicle is veering off the driving lane.

When the vehicle departs its lane, this feature will detect the lane departure via the real-time video image and warn the driver.

You can adjust the sensitivity, or disable this feature by going into Dash Cam Settings > Road Safety Settings > LDWS.

You can also adjust the Lane Departure Detection Speed sensitivity under "LDWS Speed"

Forward Collision Warning

Warns the driver of impending road hazards.

When the vehicle drives at 30 km/h or above, the FCWS will detect forward collision danger via the real-time video image and warn the driver.

You can deactivate or adjust the sensitivity of this feature by going to Dash Cam Settings > Road Safety Settings > FCWS.

You can also adjust the low-speed FCWS by selecting "Low-Speed FCWS", and adjust it accordingly.

Safety Camera Alert

Alerts the driver of upcoming speed and red light cameras.

When the vehicle approaches or passes the speed limit zone, the safety camera alert system will collect GPS signals and safety camera data. 

You can disable this feature by going into Dash Cam Settings > Road Safety Settings > Safety Cameras.

You can also download different safety camera data for different countries from Thinkware's website.
