Advanced driver-assistance systems are among the fastest-growing safety application areas due to the desire to reduce vehicular accidents and fatalities. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are intelligent systems that reside inside the vehicle and assist the main driver in various ways. These systems may provide vital information about traffic, closure, and blockage of roads ahead, congestion levels, suggested routes to avoid congestion, etc. These systems may also be used to judge the human driver's fatigue and distraction and thus make precautionary alerts or assess the driving performance and make suggestions regarding the same.

Agero is leading the digitalization of driver assistance services on a massive scale, safeguarding consumers on the road through a unique combination of platform intelligence and human-powered solutions. The majority of leading vehicle manufacturers and insurance providers use Agero's solutions to strengthen their businesses and create stronger, lasting connections with their customers. The firm is making driving smarter and safer for everyone.
