There is a real digital boom in the automotive world recently. Some of the most useful technological innovations are presented on the following top.
Pre-crash Safety System
This warning system helps avoid a possible collision with a car in front or another object on the road. The device allows seeing a slow-moving car or fixed object ahead and is able to warn the driver of an impending crash. The system produces a shrill sound signal and the relevant icon appears on the instrument panel.
Rear Parking Sensors
These devices help the drivers to park safely in reverse or see the car behind. Sensors are capable of sending a signal notification, which bounces off the counter obstacles. The conveniences calculate the signal’s returning time and distance to the obstacle. The whole system starts working while the car is engaged in reverse gear. It’s easy to fasten rear parking sensors on the surface because they are made of adhesive and small antenna.
These units illuminate the road with a wide beam that improves the visibility of the roadway and curb, so the driver can see the road clearly, better maneuver, and not dazzle drivers of oncoming cars, which significantly reduces the risk of accidents in a daze. The set consists of fasteners and power wiring. By the way, the special light filters are installed in fog lamps; they help to avoid the reflection of their beam of light. This process occurs due to filtering the blue shortwave spectrum. At the same time, its long-wavelength part has a yellow color.
Such camera consists of a light-delicate sensor, an optical unit, and an LCD monitor. The device is very small, so the car owner can easily mount it in inconspicuous places. The LCD monitor shows the information, which is installed in an internal mirror. The camera lens is made of optical plastic or glass. Such kind of camera doesn’t focus, its lens is set to the most advantageous distance, which provides maximum depth of field throughout the frame and improves the visibility. A conventional camera is equipped with a lens with a viewing angle of 125-155 degrees. Some high-class cameras are accompanied by a simple automatic. These cameras can extend the distance of visibility and become a replacement for the rear-view mirror at short distances.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Cruise control is a system that maintains the vehicle speed without having to hold the gas pedal. The device is able to determine how to act in specific road conditions, so it can be compared with the aircraft autopilot. Adaptive cruise control is regarded as a feature, which not only maintains speed but also doesn’t allow a dangerous approach to a car moving ahead. The device keeps its distance and turns on the brake when the car ahead starts slowing down. There are 2 types of adaptive equipment: laser and radar. The first one has a control unit, sensors that read information from ABS and ESP, and a special laser that monitors the movement of passing vehicles (it doesn’t work well enough in bad weather). The second type has the same elements, but it uses radar instead of a laser.
