How automation is changing the way we drive and interact with our cars

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready…

The thing of machine technology’s ongoing development is to give indeed lesser safety advantages than former inventions. The creation of electric vehicles is another area where automation is having a big impact. Electric vehicles are assuming a larger role in the automobile sector as sustainability and lowering greenhouse gas emissions become more and more significant. This piece will look at how automation is changing the way we drive and interact with our cars. Car users are being assisted with lane keeping, automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control self-parking. Due to the level of automated cars, there will likely be a wide range of significant social and economic effects on our urban life. While you concentrate on more crucial tasks, like a tight deadline or a video conversation with family members, the automobile will drive itself.



Reduced stress

Being behind the wheel of an automobile can be intimidating, especially for hesitant drivers.  Automated vehicles make the job easier for car users as they help to maintain safer distances and keep up with the correct lean. It takes care of some of the boring elements of driving. In addition, adaptive cruise control is a system made to aid traffic vehicles in keeping a safe following distance and travelling at the posted speed. This mechanism automatically modifies a car’s speed so that the driver doesn’t have to. The car can identify probable forward collisions and alert the driver thanks to these sensory systems. With adaptive cruise control, you do not have to worry about your speed but only concentrate on the environment around you.

Safer driving

Human error is reduced through automation as it helps improve the safety of cars. Safety belts. Antilock brakes, airbags. These well-known elements served as the cornerstones of car safety for many years. But over the past ten years, a quiet revolution in automotive safety has occurred, making modern vehicles better than earlier ones at both protecting people in crashes and avoiding them altogether. Cars that are being driven nowadays are safer than older cars. Many people are benefitting from the new features of automated cars because they are still using older versions. Some of the safety improvements on automated cars include:

Seat belts

Today, all cars come equipped with three-point seat belts, which confine passengers across their lap and shoulder. A pretension in the sophisticated three-point restraint system tightens the seat belt and prevents extra slack during a collision, saving hundreds of thousands of lives.

Blind Spot detention

Blind spot detection was created in reaction to accidents when drivers were unable to notice what was right in front of them due to a blind spot. It checks to see if a car is in the neighboring lane using sensors or digital cameras. The device, which is available as standard or optional equipment on many new automobiles, alerts the driver that merging or changing lanes may be risky.

Backup video

Rearview video systems, commonly referred to as backup cameras, are designed to reduce the risk of back over collisions. By displaying things directly behind your car and any potential threats to its route. Back over crashes were once assumed to be caused by the inability to see clearly behind you, but additional analysis revealed that a significant portion of incidents happened because someone was approaching the car from the side. Since May 1, 2018, all new automobiles must have rearview video systems, which provide a wider vision.

Increased productivity

The car manufacturing sector’s productivity increase has been fueled by technology. Automation can help to reduce driving time by taking care of some of the more time-consuming aspects of driving such as traffic congestion and finding parking. This can free up time for drivers to do other things, such as work, relax, or spend time with family and friends. To add self-parking, can help you park your car either in parallel or perpendicular parking spaces. Besides saving time, this is a great way of helping drivers who struggle with parking.

New possibilities

Possibilities arise when you have fresh perspectives and fresh directions to investigate. They introduce you to fresh perspectives, chances, and familiarity. They provide you access to nearly anything in life. In this case, possibilities arise with how people are using their cars. Automation is opening new possibilities in many different industries, including transportation. Self-driving cars could revolutionize the way people move and the way goods are moved. Transport can be made more accessible and affordable. For example, people with disabilities can also access transport. Some of the possibilities which can be opened include having to travel whilst sleeping.


Overall, automation has the potential to create a more prosperous and equitable future for everyone. The use of public transportation will drastically decline and may even become obsolete as a result of vehicle automation in cities. Additionally, our everyday trips to work will no longer be a chore but rather a necessary part of the working day. Automation is changing the way we drive, interact with our cars and use transportation. It is making cars safer, more efficient and more accessible. New possibilities are also being opened up. It is important to watch the space which is being created by automated cars.
