What did the community managers think of the experience? More than three quarters thought the course was useful, educational and an eye-opener! 67% of the participants had never used an ADAS system before. They believed the systems would make driving easier and safer, provided they were used properly. However, they also identified a number of disadvantages. One of these is the risk of being distracted. Despite that, the majority said they would prefer to drive a car equipped with these systems in the future. However, it is essential that a proper explanation of the systems is provided in order for people to experience the benefits.
Employers affiliated to BMN are soon to be informed that they can offer their employees a similar ADAS training course in their own vehicles, at a substantially reduced rate. These courses are going to be sponsored by SmartwayZ.NL. If you would like to find out more, please contact Koen Steenbakkers (SmartwayZ.NL) or Dimitri Pouwels (BMN).
