The Deployment of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems in Europe

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are expected to significantly enhance driving safety, comfort and efficiency. This paper analyses the deployment of ADAS in European Union 28 (EU28), in relation to the countries gross domestic products (GDPs) and fatalities. It also explores the relation of ADAS sold with vehicles price and mass. Results show that the deployment rates averaged over EU28 is only 2.7-12.6% for five safety related ADAS and 23% for eco driving support. At country level, richer countries see significantly higher deployment rates compared to poorer countries. Furthermore, countries with lower number of road fatalities show significantly higher deployment rates compared to those with higher number of road fatalities. Data on national level show significant correlations between the price of vehicles and type of ADAS on-board. Premium vehicles are significantly more equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Emergency Braking, compared to the mass-market vehicles. However, only 13% of them were purchased with more than three ADAS.
