Futuristic Vehicle Tech That’s Already In Testing Phase

As motorists wait to get their hands on the highly anticipated fully self-driving Tesla model, around 30% to 40% of Tesla customers are already signing up for Autopilot. This driver-assistance system provides assistance in general traffic situations where drivers may be veering off or losing concentration, such as lane centering, autonomous navigation in geo-fenced zones, and self-parking. But Tesla isn’t the only stakeholder in the development of disruptive tech for the auto industry, as apps, ingenuous infrastructure upgrades, and a bit of IoT create a futuristic auto landscape.

Sony Focuses On Driver Alertness

Sony caused quite a stir in the motoring world when it unveiled the Vision-S, a prototype car for the futurist. While the brand revealed that the design of the car is only a prototype and the actual aesthetics will be more in line with current cars featured on the road (to the disappointment of many), all the tech makes up for it. It wouldn’t be Sony if there wasn’t an enormous infotainment system on board. Tech also includes AI to detect driver alertness and a smattering of sensors to perform various autonomous tasks.

V2V And V2I Critical For Autonomous Infrastructure

The race is on for auto manufacturers to reveal their version of the autonomous car, as according to Tesla, theirs will be ready for production in late 2020. One of the major concerns for lawmakers, however, is the safety of these vehicles, and where the responsibility will lie if an autonomous car is part of an accident. According to FVF Law (www.fvflawfirm.com), legal assistance is essential in order to come to a speedy resolution. A workaround for manufacturers, however, is rolling out vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) technology that allows for vehicles to constantly be alerted to possible traffic situations.

A Little Bit Of Luxury For Tech Snobs

For some, it’s not only important that tech works, but that it also looks good in the process. Infotainment systems that run across the entire dashboard are a feast to look at, and eye-control tech allows drivers to continue their navigation safely. Auto manufacturers have already indicated that this tech will be rolled out as standard on future models. At the CES electronics show 2020, the main frontrunner for this technology was Byton with its M-Byte SUV.

The technological advancements for the motoring industry will level the playing field slightly as luxury brands hustle to keep up with new players. Great tech and innovative design will be the new yardsticks for motorists.
