Advancements in car technology have been taking place over the years and new items and products introduced into the market. These items and products have been a result of constant and dedicated research in the field of cars and automobiles. There are various future car technologies to look out for as they would absolutely revolutionize the automobile industry. There are different forms of car technologies that are being prepared for future markets and some of which we can look at as we proceed. In fact even your used Volvo xc90, has some of the technologies that were really scoffed at to start off with, but over time they have been found in almost all cars. Some of the technologies that you should probably expect in the market include the following:
It has always been a shock to many that in the near future, cars would be driving themselves as opposed to human beings driving them as is the case right now. Technological advancements in the field of car technology have led to the invention of the self-drive car. This car would work through GPS technology. With GPS system installed inside the car, it would be possible for the vehicle to control itself even on a very busy road. This is because these vehicles are made with special sensors that can sense the objects in front, sideways and backwards. This would in due process help the car establish which way to move and how to achieve the movement. In terms of directions and location of destinations, the GPS devices come in handy.
A GPS device is usually in contact with at least four satellites. Three satellites are used in determining the exact location at which the object, in this case the car, is at. The fourth satellite is used in determining the altitude at which the car is. The GPS device communicates with the satellites in order to aid the car in determining the assigned destination and the routes to follow. This is therefore a future car technology that you can surely look out for in the near future. Although there are people still in disbelief of this concept and are slow at “agreeing”with such an innovation, it is something that will surely revolutionize the automobile industry.
Biometric vehicle access
Another brilliant idea that could be a future car technology to look out for is the biometric vehicle access. The use of biometrics involves the usage of the body parts or details such as the eyes and fingerprints. Since the beginning of the car, there have been different advances in the way vehicles are started or accessed. The most common way of accessing and starting vehicles has been through the use of a key. Keys have been in existence since long time ago and have been trusted to work by many. Through technological research, there has been advancement to the use of a button to start a vehicle. Further technological advances have proven the application and usage of fingerprint and retina scanners in accessing and starting vehicles. As these are unique to each user, it would assure security of the vehicle. It would also be quite easy to manage your vehicle as all you would require is your retina and probably fingerprint.
