Technologies are rapidly evolving, and the automobile industry does not lag. Manufacturers are investing considerable financial resources to introduce the most innovative solutions in the cars they produce. What is the future of the industry? Which technologies should drivers expect in the nearest time? Will these innovations have an impact on the used machines? Let us find responses to these questions.
Advanced Solutions Vs. Used Cars
Not everyone can afford to buy a brand-new car from a dealer, and the market for used machines is vibrant. And it does not matter how far technologies have already reached — there are particular acquisition rules one cannot ignore. For instance, if you are going to buy a vehicle, carrying out a car or motorcycle VIN look up is a must. Besides, it is necessary to study a vehicle’s history carefully. To better understand how the market will change, let us check what manufacturers have prepared for us.
● Volvo Will Detect Drivers’ Alcohol Intoxication
The Swedish company is thinking about how to teach its cars to effectively detect not only the signs of driver’s fatigue, which can lead to a dangerous situation on the road, they are also working on a system for detecting alcohol intoxication. If Volvo understands that you are drunk, and no warnings stop you, the system will take more aggressive action — it will slow down the car, send a signal to Volvo on Call support, and even turn off the engine to stop a vehicle completely.
● The Mercedes-Benz S-Class Has Augmented Reality
The updated S-Class sedan from Mercedes-Benz has been recently presented. It is equipped with an AR-HUD head-up display that supports augmented reality. Now driving this innovative car will resemble a computer race where dynamic arrows show you where to go, useful tips appear, or you can see how much is left to the next car or the next turn. The auto also has voice control and distinguishes 27 languages.
● Cadillac Releases Face ID Keyless Opening System
Recently, the premiere of Cadillac XT4, an advanced modern crossover, has taken place. It implements the function of opening a car without a key, which is called Face ID. Thanks to it, opening the car will now be easier than ever. Cadillac has learned to recognize you by sight. When the owner approaches his Cadillac, the system reads the smartphone signal using the Bluetooth protocol and opens the door. The ignition will be unlocked, and the engine can be started by pressing the button. Alternatively, a keyless entry can be made using a password or fingerprint.
With the view of the above three innovations expected in the nearest future, it is possible to say that in several years, automobiles with these technologies may appear in the market for used vehicles. Thus, even if you cannot acquire a newly-released car, wait for a while — and you will have a chance to drive a car from the future.
