DAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) are in-vehicle systems designed to enhance driving safety and comfort. Unlike active ADAS which provide direct intervention to avoid accidents, passive ADAS increase driver's awareness of hazardous situations by giving warnings in advance. It has been noted that these systems can cause distraction when the relevant HMIs (Human-Machine Interfaces) are poorly designed. Current research is limited to address this problem in specific settings which may not be applicable in wider context. This papers aims to provide a universal rule-based solution to allow passive ADAS to initiate warnings without triggering driver distraction through an ontological approach.
