In the tech world, not all innovations are related to computers and software; we have new things happening in the automotive industry as well. Tesla and Google are trying to manufacture the first driverless car, the design and shape of cars are changing by the day, and many automotive companies are exploring the safety standards and try to create cars which will be safer and have a bigger resistance to impact. In the future, we can expect many great things to happen, but for now, let’s focus on 2020 and what car industry can bring us?
The term autonomous car isn’t the same like fully autonomous vehicle. There is one significant difference; it might take us years before we can expect for cars to drives us anywhere, without human oversight. By 2020, the manufacturers will develop something that will resemble this technology, but, it will still need the human assistance. Most likely, it will be a rural interstate with minimal variables.
It as well relates to autonomous technology, but it’s different in a way when car disregards your commands on purpose and makes its own decisions. With some cars, we already have this semi functions when they apply the brakes when you fail. But, with new vehicles, they will push the brakes, even when you have your leg on a gas pedal. This is the new safety protocol we discussed earlier. In the future, the cars will be able to recognize the danger and act against your commands, to protect you.
In the recent years, we have been the whiteness of shift from the keys to keyless entries. In the future, we expect you will be able to unlock and start your car only with the fingerprint, or maybe with an eyeball if we talk about more advanced techniques. It looks like a smartphone security concept. It will increase the level of safety, and it will be harder to steal someone’s property.
Active window display
So far, we have seen pretty impressive technology and cool gadget inside the cars. But, by the 2020 windows will be able to view vibrant images. For example, imagine navigation system which points out the nest turn seen from your perspective, through the windshield.
This technology already exists, but still, it hasn’t been introduced to the bigger audience. In the last couple of years, companies were able to shut down hundreds of stolen cars and stop the police chase, saving a lot of time and effort. This technology is supported with GPS tracking so that owners can know the exact location of their cars. By 2020 a remote shut down will enter the social circles.
