6 Top Vehicle Technology Of The Future Will Make Drivers Safer

Author at TechGenyz Augmented Reality
Vehicle Technology

When you are looking for a new vehicle; the safety features it provides should be a consideration. A vehicle’s safety features have been known to save lives. The laws covering the safety requirements for a vehicle continue to become more stringent. Vehicle manufacturers now and in the future will change the way vehicles are made as well as the safety systems installed in them. This goal of future technology will be to avoid accidents by depending less and less on the actions of the driver.

Required

Some safety features are required to be on all vehicles currently being manufactured. This includes some type of pressure monitoring ability as well as stability control. There are some technologies not currently required but are currently in some vehicles. They are side curtain airbags, blind-spot monitoring systems as well as brake assist, adaptive cruise control and more.

Traction Control System (TCS)

This safety technology feature is designed to prevent your vehicle’s wheels from spinning when they start or accelerate on a wet or slippery road surface. This is achieved by reducing the drive torque with each driven wheel as necessary. TCS is able to help improve your vehicle’s traction and safety by eliminating situations involving unstable driving.

Communication Between Vehicles

A safety feature that will eventually become common with autonomous vehicles is them being able to communicate with one another. One vehicle knowing the GPS coordinates, as well as speed of other vehicles on the road, will eventually become a major factor in road safety. The sensors developed for this will enable your vehicle to detect and respond to bicycles and pedestrians near it and take proper action. This is anticipated to cause the creation of a traffic management network system.

Pedal Travel Sensor (PWG)

PWG will involve pedal-travel measurement. This safety feature is designed to record your preferred level of braking. This information will then be implemented hydraulically or electrically. It could also be applied using a combination of both. Travel sensors are an essential element in electric and hybrid vehicles.

Active Kinematics Control (AKC)

This is a safety feature that enables the rear wheel on a vehicle to assist the front steering angle. AKC will provide your vehicle with an increased level of stability, agility as well as comfort when it changes direction. A vehicle’s steering movement occurring in the rear of the vehicle will begin an active track actuator that is electrically controlled. There could be one in the middle of the rear axle. AKC could also involve two small actuators located in the suspension for each of your vehicle’s rear wheel. Their location will be determined by the needs of a vehicle’s individual make and model.

Integrated Brake Control (IBC)

This is designed to support convention braking systems as well as driving functions that are semi-automated. It will replace the current vacuum boosting system as well as electronic stability control (ESC) used in vehicles. These systems are able to utilize the negative pressure in your engine’s air intake so its braking power can be increased. This causes it to be effective with the entire powertrain. With an IBC system, a very fast electric motor drives a high-precision actuator. This makes it possible for the IBC system to provide your vehicle with superior performance and functionality.

Augmented Reality Windshields

Many vehicles currently have heads-up display technology available. This projects important information onto a windshield. There is a night-vision camera being designed for vehicles that can look deep into the darkness and warn a driver of possible hazards such as pedestrians in dark clothes crossing a road with no lighting. A version of Google Glass is being created for windshields that will enable you to identify any objects in your field of vision. It will highlight any and all potential obstacles.

Having all the latest safety features be standard in all vehicles will take time. The new technology will provide you with increased safety and convenience. Further integration of this technology on vehicles will provide increased safety for everyone traveling on the roadways.
