If it has been some time since you have looked at any new cars, then you might be in for a pleasant surprise when you see the most up to date technology. It's not as futuristic as George Jetson's ride that turns into a briefcase, but there are still some neat gadgets nowadays.
Are you one of those people who wouldn't know what to do when your ride is suddenly swerves uncontrollably? Thankfully, the technology to prevent this chaotic situation is here. This system monitors your speed, steering wheel usage, how you turn, and it calculates the likelihood of a slide. If loss of traction is approaching, the system takes over to stop a possible disaster.
This feature is designed to warn a driver when they begin to move out of their lane unless a turn signal is on. This system uses video sensors, lasers, and infrared sensors to determine when your vehicle drifts across the road in either a left or right direction and then warns you accordingly.
With all this new technology available, you have to question the efficacy of some of these features. Adaptive headlights have been found to significantly reduce accidents. This equipment works by rotating your headlights into your turn. This greatly improves your vision and allows you to take corrective action if necessary.
With all of these popular gadgets out there, you might be thinking this might be too much to handle. If it's been a few years since you bought a new vehicle, you may not even understand keyless entry, GPS navigation, anti-lock brakes, or other new systems. Take a drive to your nearest dealership to see what new cars they have to offer.
Spring and summer is a time of change and new beginnings. There's something about the longer days and the warmer weather that pulls out of our winter funks and gets us feeling motivated to take control of things and shake up their lives for the better.
