New technology in cars

New technology in carsHey everyone, I’m back! The car industry seems to be reeling under the impact of economic slowdown. With the dwindling sales in both used and new cars, you might think that there are no new advances taking place in the field. If so, you will be in for a surprise. Actually, I think this slowdown is more reason for the tech people to come up with something attention grabbing and new.

In fact, everyone who wants to buy a car looks at the additional features, or smart features. So as such, there is pressure on all sides for the car companies to keep producing something new. I’ve dived in and got some of the new technological advances that are creating a stir in the industry.

Backing up or parking sensors

Almost all new cars that are made now come with inbuilt sensors. While some of these have alerts that let you be aware of an object directly behind in the path of your vehicle, others come with rear cameras, which give you a clear view of what is behind your car. While reversing this is of great help. Sometimes, especially when you are driving fast on the highways, it is difficult to see what is in front of you with the glaring lights of oncoming cars and trucks. This is why I have the Whelen LED light bar fitted to my vehicle.

Multi direction cameras

If you thought cameras are only for rear view, these cameras will disabuse you of the notion. Some of the latest model cars boast of multi-direction cameras, which cover all sides of your car. These cameras in fact give you 360 degrees cover and alert you when an object or person is near the vehicle.

Parental control or GPS tracking devices

With teenagers badgering their parents to no end about driving cars, it is natural for parents to worry, especially if the car is a brand new one. Technology takes care of this issue too expertly. There are GPS tracking with parental control gadgets that limit the radio volume and speed and alert you, if you have not put your seatbelt on.

These features let you feel more assured about the safety of your teen and the car of course! Most cars made today have high beam and automatic light control. You can turn your car to automatic lighting, so it switches on the lights, when it is dark. The high beam control helps you to increase or lower the light of your car, while other cars pass you or approach you. I think this would go well with the LED light bar I mentioned before, which I purchased at http://lightbarreport.com/. Lighting is very important for driving and it is not safe to ignore it.

Controls for driver aptitude

Certainly, this system is needed for today’s reckless drivers. It remembers what the driver does regularly and if it finds any deviation from that, it would alert you. The speed of the driver, steering wheel angle and use of gas, brakes and other factors are taken into account to judge the pattern of the driver. If any of these features are detected as abnormal by the system, it will alert and this is very useful when you drive during nighttime or for long hours nonstop.
