Here are three of the most significant improvements in-vehicle technology that will ensure the safety of you and your co-passengers.
Fremont, CA: Seatbelts were not even considered when the first automobiles were introduced around the twentieth century. Various vehicle safety measures have been implemented throughout several decades, helping to minimize both the frequency of accidents and the number of survivable incidents. Here are three of the most significant improvements in-vehicle technology that will ensure the safety of you and your co-passengers.
Automatic Sensors and Lane Change Assist
Sudden or dangerous lane changes are a common cause of car accidents. When poor road and weather conditions are present, drivers must rely even more on vehicle safety features to arrive at their destinations safely. Unfortunately, not all motorists pay attention when you use your turn signal before changing lanes. New technologies such as lane change assist are helping to prevent more car accidents. If another automobile is present in the adjoining lane they want to change into, drivers in cars with lane change assist are alerted.
Technology for Emergency Braking
When a driver fails to stop in time to avoid a collision, it can result in whiplash, significant front-end damage, and even total wreckage. Millions of claims have been brought in the aftermath of fatal car accidents. While a family can file on behalf of a loved one who died in an automobile accident, no money will be enough to compensate them. As a result, emergency braking technology in automobiles is crucial in lowering the number of automobile accidents. Cars are equipped with a sensor that automatically breaks and slows down the car, lessening or eliminating collision.
Cameras That Serve As a Backup
Even for seasoned drivers, parallel parking can be challenging. Cars are parked inches away on city roadways in cities like New York. Although car accidents involving drivers attempting to park usually small, backup assist systems might be useful when avoiding pedestrians. Rear backup cameras detect obstructions, so you don't have to worry about striking any inanimate objects or pedestrians who may have moved in the path. When putting your vehicle in reverse, use a backup camera to keep yourself safe from minor and serious collisions.
