It seems the world is high on technology, and the automobile industry isn’t behind. Each year we see things that were previously just part of futuristic sci-fi movies become reality. While the movie Back to the Future has set some unrealistic expectations for 2019, such as flying cars, I reckon to give scientists another ten to twenty years, and they’ll get the job done. If you want to stay updated with all the advancements in the automobile industry, then you’ve come to the right place. Here mentioned below are seven latest tech advancements that you need to know about.
The first and foremost thing that you should know about is the vehicle to vehicle communication. While it seems like something out of a sci-fi movie, it is an advancement that will surely blow your mind. To decrease the rate of road accidents and traffic, vehicles will now be able to communicate with each other regarding traffic and accidents. That will help you make a better decision and take another route.
Scientists have used AI to revolutionize the way we travel and increase our convenience. Furthermore, machine learning technology has also been used to come up with such a revolutionizing advancement. While it hasn’t become standard this year, it is in the last stages of development and is predicted to reach completion by the end of 2019.
If you’ve wished you knew what was going to happen in the future, then this is the best thing that you can hope for. While many companies are in the completion phase of this technology, it is said that it will make car sensors more efficient. It will also predict how long your car can travel on the fuel you have and alert you of when you’ll need to get it checked from the mechanic.
3. Health monitoring seatbelts
If you’ve seen anyone in a car accident, knowing the person vitals on time can save his life. While seatbelts are known to save lives, this technological advancement is sure to save a more significant percentage of lives as it will provide better first-hand vital readings in case of emergencies.
Even if you’re not in an accident and your vitals show that you’re having a medical problem, authorities will be alerted and be at your place in no time. While Ford predominantly introduces this technology, different companies are working on it as we speak.
4. Fingerprint opening
If you’ve always been a person who forgot where they put their car keys, then this is sure to make you excited. The new cars coming out this year are going to have fingerprint recognition that will make your life a whole lot easier. While it does come with a few concerns regarding car safety, I’m sure the automobile industries are working on something that can make it a whole lot better.
5. Remotely accessed vehicles
With the increase in the rates of carjacking and the significant consequences that can take place if one uses a stolen car, vehicles can now be remotely accessed. If your car has an OnStar system, all you need to do is to alert the head office, and your car will be shut down. Even if it isn’t stolen one thing you can do to stay proactive is to assign your car a perimeter, it cannot cross unless you alert the authorities.
6. Pedestrian detection
If you’re traveling long distances, the chances are that you might not be as vigilant as you ought to be. This technology has been introduced to lower the number of hit and run accidents. Now the next time you’re on an abandoned road and going a bit over speed, your car will let you know if there is a pedestrian ahead. It can also be useful in places with heavy fog or rain, as they can become a hurdle in seeing the road.
If you want to make sure you are not involved in a hit and run, or contribute to roadkill, then this is the technology that you’ve been waiting for.
7. Automated headlight control
I hate those people who don’t care to lower their headlights as they pass by. While I understand it is often irritating to lower down the headlights again and again in traffic, automated headlights are an amazing solution to your problems. They’ll manage the road on their own and navigate your light intensity. So whether you have a 6000k led headlight or an 8000 led headlight you don’t need to be concerned about lowering the intensity, the respective feature will take care of it.
If you’ve gone through the above-mentioned advancements, your mind must be baffled. While only a few of us are true automobile enthusiast, such advancements are sure to get everyone’s attention.
With the industry growing day by day, such advancements will start revolutionizing the way we travel. Not only will it have industrial implications, but it will also face a significant amount of challenges nationally and internationally. I just hope we’re all here to see it grow further and make the impossible, possible.
