[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]With autonomous cars already being the future of vehicles, automobiles are becoming more advanced and more useful. There are now more sophisticated cars with great functions. Just in case you are looking to buy a new car, we recommend that you go hard or go home. These new car technologies are the latest and most recent innovations infused into vehicles this year.
1. Cross-traffic alert
There are a lot of terrible drivers out there, and parking a car takes special skills, especially if you are trying to park with your rear. It is arguably the easiest way to get very expensive car crashes. The cross-traffic alert at the rear is a new technology that helps alert drivers. Cars now have inbuilt rear sensors that alert drivers when obstructions are behind them while backing up, be it a pedestrian, other vehicles or shopping carts. The alerts can be in the form of loud beeps or automatic breaks to avoid a collision.
2. 360-degree camera
360-degree cameras are very useful for seeing the car from all angles. Here is one of the amazing car technologies that allows your car to display a virtual all round top view of the car’s surroundings. It also provides great assistance with parallel parking, especially when you underestimate the size of your car and try to squeeze in a tight spot. This system is not overly expensive and is now available on moderately priced modern cars.
3. Vehicle tracking software
The advent of smart technology is birthing smarter frauds. This means that people with bad intentions will still devise a way to steal cars. This technology is important in keeping cars safe and retrieving stolen vehicles. The Vehicle Tracking Software also has features that involve post-crash notifications for alerting law enforcements in case of a crash and diagnostics.
4. Mobile app connection
The interaction between mobile devices and cars are now seamless thanks to modern technology. Car makers are now constantly improving this interaction. From playing music to the ability to remotely lock and unlock the car from the phone. You can also now check fuel and tyre pressure or even start the car in some instances. Mostly, these services offer yearly to monthly subscriptions.
5. Emergency braking system
The Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) uses sensors to envisage a potential crash and automatically applied the brakes to prevent an imminent accident. This technology has been agreed by automakers to be standard for cars by 2022. It is, therefore, getting more popular in modern vehicles. However, it is an emergency measure would only activate as a last resort for when there is an extreme threat to safety.
6. Departure warning
Some drivers might be driving tired, drunk or just be simply distracted. The easiest driving error to make while not paying attention is switching lanes. The lane departure warning systems use cameras to determine when the car starts to drift out of its lane. It then turns itself off once the driver gets the car back in place. In more advanced cases, the technology can redirect a car back into its lane automatically.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
