Technology has been growing at a great pace in the past few years especially in the automotive industry. Never there have so many innovations and improvements in the technology of a vehicle. It is now increasing at a rapid pace so much so that when you buy a new vehicle in the next two or three years, it will be so much different than what it is these days. You can look out for changes in top finest Chevy Cars i.e. 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer.
That is the number of changes and improvements we are talking about in the automotive industry. And this does not include the obvious ones like autonomous driving and electric cars. These are much more than that and focus a lot on high-tech developments starting from the connected tech features to the big massive screens that will be found all over the dashboard.
We also expect safety to take a huge step with the improvements in technology and this means that all the cars on the road will get a lot safer than how they are now. As we said earlier, there are lots of changes, innovations, and improvements in the automotive industry when it comes to technology but not every feature is expected to make its way to all the vehicles in the coming years.
So let us look at some of the technology features which will easily see itself adapted to all of the vehicles on the road within the next two or three years. Cars like the 2021 Chevy Tahoe and the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer are the perfect examples for the same. And make no mistake guys, these technology features play a major role when it comes to choosing your future car.
1) Bigger Screens
This was inevitable and everyone saw this coming a long time back. Screens were never a part of a vehicle but the day they made their way to the center console, we always had the question of when will this take over the entire dashboard. And the day is not too far away as we already have many vehicles in the industry with just one screen to two screens in the entire dashboard.
And some cars like the all-new Mercedes-Benz S-Class and EQS have taken it even a step further with their hyper screens as Mercedes-Benz likes to call it. There are just purely screens all over the dashboard which seem like a big glass panel stuck onto the dashboard. And some manufacturers have even implemented curved OLED screens in their premium luxury cars like what Cadillac has done with its Escalade luxury SUV.
Big screens are usually more useful than what one might think so. These can display lots of information on the display with vibrant vivid colors along with a very intuitive and easy-to-use user interface. The software plays an important part in big screens because the user experience is very important to have a great driving experience.
And all of the manufacturers are pretty much close to perfectly integrating their software with their hardware making way for a bigger and colorful future. But there is always the other side to the coin where not every customer prefers this high-end all-screen dashboard. Some like the simple and minimalist design and approach to the dashboard of their cars like what the original car has always been.
2) Driver Alert Monitoring System
This technology is now becoming quite important for the safety of the passengers in the car. The Driver Alert Monitoring System makes sure that the driver’s eyes stay on the road when driving. This technology feature will be soon a lot in the future and even the new rules adopted by the EU require all the new cars to be fitted with the same technology which can warn the drivers if they are sleepy or distracted. This system is designed to determine the driver’s eyelid movements, the direction of gaze, and seating position to make sure that the driver is attentive at all times when driving the car.
If the system detects a driver being inattentive or drowsy, it will soon alert the driver and also optimize the airbags depending on the vehicle’s occupant. The driver alert monitoring system is very important in the coming days. That is because the number of cars on the roads is increasing at a rapid pace and lots of driver assistance technologies are doing the job of driving replacing the drivers.
Not all driver alert monitoring systems are up to the task of performing a flawless job. But one such system that is perfectly fine in the world is General Motors’s Super Cruise feature. The Super Cruise technology makes sure that all the drivers are well engaged all the time and pays attention to the road. And these technologies are already found on the likes of the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer.
3) 3D Safety Alerts
One of the biggest aspects of the car which will benefit a lot by improving technology is the safety system. Every manufacturer these days, day in day out, is developing intelligent solutions to make sure that their passengers stay safe no matter whatever worse happens. These technology features make sure that an accident never happens in the first place to protect the occupants to the highest degree. One such rising technology is 3D Safety Alerts where the driver will be alerted with visual warnings whenever a driver assistance technology detects something worse is about to happen.
There are already alerts that are usually shown on the driver’s screen which again can sometimes be missed by the driver. But this 3D Safety Alert system will visually pop out the warning signs so that it really gets the driver’s attention. And this feature can be found on the road already with the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Genesis, and Peugeot offering the same in some of their premium cars.
We expect this technology to now trickle down to almost all the cars in all the various segments in the automotive industry. It might be expensive at the start of the adaptation in some segments and could also be an optional extra. But this is happening for sure and with time when the technology is more profound, we ultimately expect the prices to implement the same to go down in the near future.
4) Sophisticated Sound System
Who does not like a sound system on their car which will be one of their biggest entertainment for the whole journey? All manufacturers know the same and have started to provide some of the best-sophisticated sound systems in the entire industry with their cars. Do note that with the original car, sound systems were never really a thing and the only sound you would enjoy is from your car’s engine and exhaust.
Gone are those days and these days every vehicle launched comes with some sort of sophisticated sound systems. But some manufacturers have just cranked up the number of speakers in the car. Here, they have been focusing a lot on the quantity of the speakers rather than the quality of speakers. This in turn occupies a lot of space on the interiors compromising on the passenger space and some other features which could have been added otherwise.
The upcoming technologies are said to focus a lot on the quality rather than the number of speakers with less speakers and great quality. The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe comes with a 10-speaker Bose premium audio system whereas the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer gets a 7-speaker Bose audio system. These ones are really great and sound so good making your entertainment experience much better.
5) Added Luxury Tech
Cars are always about luxury and we always know that there is no threshold for luxury in the automotive industry. With every generation, the luxury quotient of a car is just getting higher and higher. It never looks like it is going to stop and we too believe the same. In recent days, more luxury tech which was once available only in premium luxury cars is now making its way even to the mid-size segment. This is now just expected to get better and will be even implemented in all the segments in the automotive industry. Some of these include the likes of leather seats, heated seats, cooled seats, seats with massaging functions, and bespoke fabric upholstery.
And some manufacturers like BMW are looking at a very different future in terms of luxury seating which is evident with their BMW Urban Suite concept. Here, the front passenger seat is removed to open up more space for the rear passenger. This also includes a small desk space and when done properly, it will almost be close to that of a first-class seat on a luxury airplane.
These were some of the highly adaptable technology features that will make their way to almost all the cars in the automotive industry in the next two or three years. The progress might take some time given the current situation with the global pandemic but it will definitely happen. Technology, its improvements, innovations, and changes are inevitable in the automotive industry and it is really great to be in a time to be able to witness and experience the same.
