A windscreen is a windscreen, right? It’s there to see through and that’s it, right? Wrong. For some years now, the humble windscreen has been at the heart of what we call Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). Safety features such as lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and collision avoidance all depend on ADAS technology, and, in turn, on that windscreen.
For most of us, the easing of travel restrictions signals a return to a normal of sorts, and for many that means a return to gain employment for that car which has been in the driveway since early March. That in turn will turn our attention to our annual car service which we may have put off over the crisis.
