Driving is one of the riskiest things we do in our daily lives. Crashes, mechanical problems, and even road rage can all make driving a dangerous activity.
Technology has a reputation for adding to the dangers of driving due to the rise in accidents caused by people distracted by their smartphones. Technology can also, though, make driving safer if you use the right gadgets and use them safely. Here are some of the top tech devices for making the road a safer place.
With the Mobileye C2-270, you can upgrade your older vehicle, so that it has some of the safety features that new smart cars have. The Mobileye system consists of a smart camera, an auditory warning system, and a visual dashboard.
The camera, which is installed on the front of the windshield, can detect the distance between vehicles, sense obstructions in the road and warn you if you drift out of your line.
If the system detects a problem, it will set off an audible and a visual warning. It can’t actually take control of the vehicle, but it can alert the driver in time to stop an accident from occurring.
If you really want to turn your vehicle into a smart car, consider Automatic. The device can help you remember where you parked your car, give you information on your driving habits, tell you why your engine light is on and even call for help in the event of a crash.
All of you have to do is plug the device into the dashboard of your car and whether it’s a 2000 or a 2017 Dodge Charger, you’ll be driving a very smart car. You can view all the information Automatic provides for you on the company’s apps on your smartphone.
For some, the temptation to use your phone while driving can sometimes be too great to resist. Others worry about whether their kids are texting while behind the wheel. Cell Control can help squash that temptation and keep you safe while on the road.
You just plug the small device into your vehicle, and it blocks phone signals in the car while the vehicle is moving. It can even sense when the car stops moving and automatically allow cell phone use again. If a hands-free device is plugged into your phone, it will allow phone calls as well. Distracted driving is one of biggest new issues for drivers today, and Cell Control can help put a stop to it.
Technology is everywhere these days, including in our vehicles. It can either distract us and make driving more dangerous, or help keep us safe. It all depends on which technologies we choose to use while driving and how we use them.
More and more companies are sensing the need for technology to make driving safer and are releasing tech gear designed to do just that. Whether it’s by warning you about a stopped vehicle on the road, calling for help after a crash or putting an end to texting and driving, technology can help you get where you’re going safely.
