Whats the new thing in Car Technology

The technology that is in the world in general is absolutely incredible.  Never did I think that I would see things the size of a match box hold all sorts of private information pulled off of a computer that is as thin as a notebook.  The technology that has been passed on from computers has slowly made its way on over to the car market and nowadays, cars have some of the best technology in the world

Whats New #1

That is what we are going to explore in the next few blogs, exactly what technology is out there that can truly keep you safe and sound whenever you are driving.  Do you use cruise control?  I do – all of the time and I have to say that the newest cruise control feature that is popping up on a lot of cars is fantastic!

It actually makes sure that you stay a safe distance away from the car in front of you, that way you do not end up in a car accident.

Whats New #2

Now that we have talked a little bit about the adaptive cruise control, let’s move onto another technology that is actually exploding onto the market and that is the blind-spot detection.  One reason this is such a huge deal because many people get into car accidents because they do not check their blind spot.

This tool actually alerts you whenever you are trying to merge over and someone is in your blind spot.  Something will either flash in your mirror or there will be a small beeping alarm that will let you know.

Usually, this tool responds whenever you put on your turn signal, so that is kind of a trigger.

Whats New #3

Finally, another neat safety tool that is constantly being seen in a lot of the newest cars I the rollover prevention/mitigation; which basically ensures that you car is extremely stable and that it is going to keep you safe.  If you take a corner too fast or swerve over too fast, have you ever felt like your car is going to tip over?

This is especially apparent in a lot of cars that are top heavy.  Well, this system actually senses a potential rollover situation and will apply the brakes and modulate throttle as needed in order to help make maintain control of your car.

This technology seems to be popping up everywhere from GM to Ford all the way to Volvo and the one common goal is to ensure that your car does not flip over!

Hybrid Cars – Alternative Car Fuel

The rising gas prices over the last few years and environmental problems caused by fossil fuels have forced people to look for alternative car fuels that are both more inexpensive and cleaner. One type of car that meets these requirements is known as the hybrid. A hybrid is capable of higher mileage per gallon, because it does not solely run on a fossil fuel based combustion engine.

Hybrid cars are considered to be alternatives to standard fuels because they can run on either a gas engine or be powered by the rechargeable energy storage system or RESS for short, which is an electric motor. Since the first hybrid car, the electric motor has been improved upon and longer distances can be traveled without having to use the combustion engine. This is made possible by the addition of regenerative braking to the car, which charges the electrical system through the capture of kinetic energy from the braking actions.

Hybrid cars are also cleaner and have less negative impact on the environment. This is a result of using less gas or diesel and relying more on the electric motor. The majority of recent hybrid car models also have the so-called start-stop system which automatically turns off the combustion engine when idle and starts it again when driving resumes. This technology reduces emissions and increased efficiency.

Today hybrid vehicles are available from most of the major car makers and it is now a top priority due to increased consumer interest in cars that are cleaner, cheaper to drive and not dependent on oil based fuels. The initial cost to purchase a hybrid instead of a standard combustion engine model of a car is reasonable and costs only a few thousand more.

There’s loads of info about hybrid cars online – and we recommend you read up on the technical aspects too – it’s a great new thing for the automotive industry!…
