What is Evasive Steering Assistance?
We have all experienced it at one time or another. You are driving along when, suddenly, an object appears in your path. It could be a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist, animal, or even a mattress that has fallen off a truck. At that moment, you do whatever you can to avoid a collision, but it's a split-second decision that requires cat-like reflexes. Despite their best efforts, even good, attentive drivers may not have enough time to react. To help drivers avert disaster, some automakers offer Evasive Steering Assistance (ESA) technology as part of their advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) safety suite.
