How Far Can Technology Take the Automotive Industry?


If you were to think even just a decade ago what things in the world would be like now, it would have blown your mind. Who would have thought Donald Trump would be president of the United States or that we would have self-driving cars? Even mobile phones have stepped up and can now do so much more than they’ve ever been capable of. In recent years, the automotive industry has been one of the industries that have been working hard with technology companies so that they can really create something advanced for their vehicles, but that still offers safety and comfort.

Cars are themselves becoming smart devices as they now have things like advanced braking abilities, autonomous driving, mapping technology, improved fuel efficiency, as well as things like one of the new Smart Cars that offer emission-free driving. So there really are many ways that cars have been benefiting our lives and improving how we do things, as well as making them better for the environment. But in the coming years, are we set to see even more progress? Here are just a few of the ways that tech is helping the automotive industry and what could be coming in the not-so-distant future.


Improved Fuel-Efficiency

Brands like Tesla are at the forefront of being fuel-efficient, as they have vehicles that are electric or hybrid, going for miles and miles without needing to be charged up. But in the future, it won’t be too long until other brands have been able to catch up and there will be a lot more choice in this industry, as well as more competitive pricing.

Improved Vehicle Technology

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are both things that have an important role in the automotive industry, as things like predictive capabilities are going to become more important in cars and help to make your driving experience more personal as it can adjust to you and ‘remember’ you as the driver. This can be through algorithms that manufacturers are and will use, that will automate the process of setting up the car and different system preferences.

Self-Driving Cars

Autonomous driving technology is something that has been in the news and something that will become more and more so, as more companies look to implement, install, and test their self-driving functionalities. Some cars already have some semi-autonomous abilities as there are driving assist technologies and parking assist. So there are likely to be more and more cars and manufacturers that look to develop this in the coming years.

As you can see, some great minds in the tech industries have joined forces with automotive companies to help improve things and how things go. The rise of electric vehicle technology helps emissions and isn’t making cars much more expensive. AI is playing a massive part in the future of cars, which can help driving as well as car maintenance. Safety and comfort can all look to be improved with improving tech in our cars too, so only time will tell.
