Technology is moving quickly, and the automotive world is no exception. The future of cars could look very different to the current picture, but they will certainly be changes for the better. When it comes to advances in technology, the automotive world is arguably the most exciting. Here’s what you can expect from car technology by 2025.
Thanks to the likes of Siri and Alexa, we’re becoming used to using voice commands in our everyday lives. Simple commands, like ‘call home’, have already been implemented into car technology, allowing us to connect our phones to the car electronics. However, advances in technology will allow us to do so much more. For instance, you may be able to ask your car to search for the nearest parking and then let your car automatically drive you there. Voice commands could take out all the hassle and stress of driving and make the roads a lot safer.
The last thing you want is to find a problem with your car and then have to go through the agony of booking time off work, booking your car into a garage and waiting to hear the bad news. Advanced car technology could allow vehicles to diagnose their own problems and even book itself into a mechanics. That way, you are prepared for what the problem is and how much it will cost to fix. Cars may also be able to do what dmvconnect.com does. It could renew licenses, search for better quotes for car insurance and renew insurance without you having to do any of the work.
We’ve already seen the start of self-driving vehicles, but the technology is about to become a lot more advanced. Not only are these cars much better for the environment, but they also take a lot of the risk involved in driving out of the picture. These cars also give access to people who may not easily have access to driving. For example, vulnerable and disabled people, as well as elderly people who find manual driving more difficult than before. There are many advantages to autonomous vehicles and they’ll soon become far more affordable for the average person.
YOUR HEALTH MONITORED
What if your car could monitor your health through your car seat? Ford have already put plans into motion to create such an innovative piece of technology. The seat will be able to monitor the driver’s heart health, even without it touching the skin. In the future, cars will also be able to monitor glucose levels of diabetics. Therefore, anyone suffering from diabetes or at risk of heart disease won’t have to be cautious about travelling.
Thanks to the revolutionary 3D printing, you’ll be able to custom design your own car in the near future. At the moment you can only customize car accessories, but there will be a time when the majority of your car could be totally unique. Obviously, this will be extremely expensive, but for car enthusiasts it could be a dream come true.
