Evaluation of Active Driving Assistance Systems

In this report, active driving assistance (ADA) systems were tested using a closed-course setting to evaluate responses in common driving scenarios. ADA systems are classified as Level 2 driving automation. American Automobile Association (AAA) automotive researchers found that the ADA systems were most challenged when encountering simulated disabled vehicles resulting in collisions 66% of the time with an average impact speed of 25 mph. Significant disruptions to the ADA occurred approximately every eight miles for a total of 521 events during the 4,000 miles of real-world driving tests. The majority of the issues experienced involved lane keeping (73%). The vehicles tested were: 2019 BMW X7 with Active Driving Assistant Professional, 2019 Cadillac CT6 with Super Cruise™, 2019 Ford Edge with Ford Co-Pilot360™, 2020 Kia Telluride with Highway Driving Assist and 2020 Subaru Outback with EyeSight®.
