“Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)” is the first ADAS-specific textbook for students of automotive technology. Written by an outstanding author team, it contains 250 pages of photos, diagrams and additional features, designed to provide automotive technicians and students the knowledge and skills they need to understand, identify, document and calibrate ADAS technologies.

• Case Studies throughout the text offer real-world situations that a technician may encounter.

• Pro Tips included in every chapter direct the reader to helpful resources for further learning, as well as how to apply the chapter content while working in the shop.

• Deep Dives expand on interesting aspects of the text, often sharing details on specific events,
vehicles or situations.

The book provides an excellent overview of all of the ADAS systems the reader may find in modern vehicles and answers many of the questions that technicians or shop owners need to know when entering the ADAS repair and calibration market.

Each chapter includes job sheets aligned to ASE's new L4 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Specialist Test and will help prepare students for the certification test. Each chapter ends with a summary, list of critical thinking questions and ASE type test questions. The jobs sheets at the end of the book are intended to be used as instructional assignments between students and instructors.
