ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS (ADAS)
INCREASING SAFETY & SAVING
COSTS IN MOTORSPORT
Zytek provides advanced driver assistance systems for motorsport, derived from state-of-the-art roadcar systems.
The application of this technology in motorsport increases driver, marshal and spectator safety, and can also reduce costs via a reduction in both the number of accidents and their severity.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are the key enablers to introduce levels of autonomous performance to a wide range of vehicle types, including those used in motorsport.
Already in production with road vehicles are a range of ADAS technologies enabling a high level of driver comfort and potential collision avoidance with features such as Blind Spot Detection and Emergency Brake Assist.

CREATING A 360° VEHICLE VIEW
WITH RADAR, CAMERA & LIDAR
Hardware options including radar, camera & lidar sensors to enable a highly robust 360° view of the vehicle, the precondition of realising advanced driving functions.
Zytek has access to these technologies via its parent company Continental Engineering.
The specification and integration of these advanced systems are possible through our dedicated teams who have completed many successful projects across a wide range of vehicle types.
The sensor types that can be considered for motorsport applications include:
- Long Range Radars – for features such as Emergency Brake Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control.
- Short-Range-Radars – for features such as Blind-Spot-Detection, Rear- Cross-Traffic-Alert and Lane-Change-Assist.
- Front-Cameras – for Lane-Support-Functions and Speed-Limit-Assist.
- Driver Monitoring Cameras – Camera Based Technology for Driver Availability Monitoring.
- Satellite-Cameras – for 3D-Surround-View and Mirror Replacement.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) refers to any system that assists drivers in their driving tasks.
Examples include lane departure warning, blind spot detection, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, emergency braking, pedestrian recognition, traffic sign recognition, road sign recognition, automatic high beam headlamps, automatic parking, intelligent cruise control, lane keeping assist, and active cruise control.
We specialise in all systems relating to motorsport.
The quality of sensors is vital in all aspects of a successful operation, so only the highest quality automotive standard systems are used.
The systems will need to be fully set up within the vehicle environment in which they will be used.
At Zytek we have the workshop facilities and testing equipment to ensure correct set up and validation.
To a degree, yes, but all sensors will have recommended mounting locations which must be adhered to, otherwise the system will not perform as it should.
This can be Zytek or the customer, but should be discussed in detail to ensure that all requirements have been met.
However for high performance road applications our technology could assist with road safety, driver distraction and human error to help reduce road accidents.
- ADAS can help prevent accidents by warning drivers of hazards in their path
- ADAS can warn drivers when they are driving too fast or too slow
- ADAS can automatically brake to avoid collisions
- ADAS may not be able to detect all obstacles, especially if they are covered with snow or ice
- Some people find it annoying that ADAS constantly interrupts them while they’re trying to drive
- Lane Departure Warning – alerts the driver when they drift out of their lane
- Adaptive Cruise Control – automatically adjusts speed to maintain set distance from vehicle ahead
- Blind Spot Detection – warns if another vehicle enters the blind spot area
- Forward Collision Alert – sounds an alarm if the vehicle detects an object directly ahead
- Automatic Emergency Braking – brakes automatically if the vehicle detects an obstacle
Autonomous emergency braking (AEB) technology is designed to help prevent collisions between vehicles and pedestrians or other objects when drivers become distracted or impaired.
AEB uses sensors to detect obstacles around the vehicle and then applies brakes automatically to avoid a collision. The technology has been available for several years, but only recently has it started to be implemented into new cars.
A type of advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) that helps drivers stay within the lane, by alerting them when they start to drift. It tracks lane markings and alerts the driver with an audible alert when it senses an unintentional line departure, providing a visual warning on the dashboard. The purpose of Lane Departure Warning is to reduce the number of accidents caused by vehicles drifting across solid or broken lines without the driver noticing.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a driver assistance system that automatically adjusts the speed of your vehicle to maintain a safe distance from vehicles ahead of you. It typically works by using radar or cameras to detect when there is an object in front of the car and then changes its speed accordingly. ACC also can help improve fuel economy as it maintains a constant speed, reduce driver fatigue on long drives, as well as increases safety on the road.
Blind Spot Detection (BSD) is a car safety feature that uses sensors to detect objects and vehicles in the driver’s blind spots, alerting drivers of potential dangers. BSD systems use radar and ultrasonic sensors located near the car’s back and side mirrors to monitor nearby traffic, warning drivers of an approaching vehicle when it is detected. This helps reduce the chances of accidents due to poor visibility and increases driver safety overall.
Forward collision alert is a feature on many modern cars that uses sensors and cameras to detect when the car is in danger of hitting another vehicle in front of it. It will then alert the driver with an audible, visual, or tactile warning. The goal of forward collision alert systems is to reduce the number of accidents caused by drivers not paying attention or having enough time to react.
Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) is a safety system that utilizes sensors to detect objects in the vehicle’s path, triggering the brakes and mitigating or avoiding an impending collision. AEB technology can sense when a pedestrian, cyclist, or other object is in front of the car and apply the brakes autonomously to prevent a crash. This helps reduce the chance of a crash occurring and can also reduce injury severity if a crash does occur.
