Volvo’s alcohol detection system for drivers
The company’s specialists seriously thought about the need for cars to automatically detect signs of pronounced driver fatigue. In addition, a smart vehicle is able to detect the presence of alcohol poisoning with the function of automatically blocking further driving.
The proposed innovation will significantly reduce accident rates associated with drink-driving.
Augmented reality in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class
Not so long ago, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan was officially presented to the public, which is admired for its built-in support for augmented reality. As a result, the driving process resembles a game race, where the arrows indicate the direction of movement, the actual distance to other cars or the turn.
Characteristically, the declared viewing angle coincides with a home cinema, which automatically allows us to talk about a lot of advantages. The voice function supports 27 foreign languages. There is a built-in 17 inch screen.
Cadillac introduced the Face ID keyless entry system
Not so long ago, the official international presentation of the Cadillac XT4 crossover took place. The main functional feature is considered to be the ability to open the vehicle without using standard keys. The updated technology works on the principle familiar to many from Face ID.
After approaching the car owner, the system automatically reads the ultrasonic signal from the mobile phone through the Bluetooth protocol. If the scan is successful, the system will open the door. As an alternative, the manufacturer offers the use of a fingerprint.
CrabWalk mode for diagonal driving in an electric Hummer
In 2020, GMC’s sensational new Hummer electric pickup truck was released. In addition to the fact that the American manufacturer managed to revive the once cult brand, some rather original additional features appeared.
The successfully integrated CrabWalk mode has caused quite a stir around it. The main reason is the ability to move the car diagonally. The principle of operation is simple – after activating the function in question, the wheels of the vehicle turn in one direction. This is especially true when driving off-road.
Hyundai off-road technology
If Korean engineers can achieve their goals, the future perception of Hyundai cars will change dramatically. This implies the ability of the vehicle to practically step over the many obstacles in front of it, and not to circumvent them according to the classic scenario.
The main purpose of destination is to use in places the greatest natural and even technological disasters. A key feature is the ability to overcome obstacles with a declared height of up to 1.5 meters. Today, advanced technology is actively tested. Official confirmation of successful testing by Korean engineers is expected soon.
