Nowadays, automotive technology has become a thought in the minds of lots of investors. This technology is growing rapidly. And it’s understandable since you can exactly choose what kind of features you want for your car. We’ve written this article to show you the best features that will come with the automotive technology in the next few years – we think it’s going to be easier for you to go car shopping. However, it’s good to keep in mind that you won’t find these features in all the cars (some are quite rare), but we will see them all in every car soon enough, we hope.

Apps To Replace Keys

There are some vehicles that come with an app that allows you to flash the lights or honk the horn, or simply start the car – and the best thing is that you don’t have to be close to it in order to do it. For example, the Tesla Model 3 comes with no keys, just the app.

Just think about this: you won’t have to worry about losing your keys anymore. Or a friend asked you to lend the car, and you are able to control it at all times from everywhere. It will just be easier to handle your car with your phone.

Chevrolet and Ford, as well as other brands, give you this app with no charge at all, or with a next-to-nothing subscription fee. It’s useful and, also, kinda cool if we really think about it.

Autonomous Driving

We’ve learned that what you really have to have for your car is automatic braking and automatic steering, but honestly, autonomous technology is the real deal.

Tesla knows what we’re talking about; we’ve all heard of the opinions. Nissan comes with ProPilot, Cadillac with Super Cruise (full autonomous driving), Volvo with Pilot Assist, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

There are many people who love to drive, but the autonomous technology it’s something you must do at least once. Perhaps you have a favorite road – you can now drive yourself there. Or perhaps you hate that crowded part of the town every morning – you don’t have to worry about it anymore. We present you the future, and the future comes with autonomous driving.

We think it’s worth the money, especially if we’re thinking about the rush-hour traffic and the crowded cities. You can escape many unpleasant situations with this new technology.

Cameras Everywhere

We’ve all heard of the 360-degree cameras that allow you to see outside the car. But cameras are now useful in many other ways. Honda comes with a feature called CabinWatch, which is basically a camera that lets you see your passengers – so you don’t have to worry about turning back to your kids to discipline them while in the car. If you want to get a Chevrolet, then go ahead, as it comes with an automatic dashcam, which has a valet mode, which allows you to take a look at your valet who’s driving your car. Cadillac has a camera put on the rearview mirror to get rid of all the blind spots.

Having a camera in your car to see everything it’s like having a second pair of eyes. You’re in more control; you’re safe and sound in your car.

It’s known really a must – since your valet probably won’t steal your car, but it can come in handy in some situations. Better safe than sorry.

Digital Gauges

We’ve seen that, in time, the traditional instrument panel gauges, such as the tachometer and the speedometer, were replaced with screens. But people didn’t really notice at first how useful they can actually be.

Audi has a Virtual Cockpit, which comes with a second infotainment screen. The best part is that it’s below “the road”, which means that you won’t take your eyes off the road that much to look at it. It gives you a full-screen navigation map – wait for it – with a bird’s eye view that’s oriented in the direction of your car.

The best part is that you can make your own gauge. But since the gauge cluster screens that were designed so far are way too awesome to be replaced, we think that won’t really be the case. They give you way more than just the traditional info – like your speed, fuel level, and mileage.

If you are interested in even more technology-related articles and information from us here at Bit Rebels then we have a lot to choose from.
