Technology is our world today is not only constantly expanding on many different levels, and fields, but also its functionality as well. Years ago, our parents, or grandparents never would have that that a phone could not only fit in our pocket, but also have the ability to do more than just speaking through it. The majority of us in this day and age now not only have this form of technology at our disposal, but also other forms as well that are constantly aiding us in our everyday lives. However, technology, as we have come to see and know, has its negatives especially behind the wheel of a car.
Taking Safety To The Next Level
Normally, we classify technology that is associated with driving to be quite dangerous, and a distracter for many motor vehicle operators out there. However, today, technology is now being used to actually help fight that of negligent driving. Recently, Toyota Motor Corporation has decided to begin testing multiple new aspects of safety devices, and gadgets for vehicles that ultimately would not only help drivers focus more on the road, but also bring aspects of the road to their attention that they may not see or notice.
Another Set of Eyes and Ears On The Road
Currently taking place at the Intelligent Transportation System site of the automobile company’s headquarters, the study is using that of sensors, transmitters and cameras to help alert drivers not only with more aspects of the road other than that of simply backing up and their spatial distance between their vehicle and another, but ultimately giving us an extra set of eyes. The transmitters and sensors are now being tested with the vehicle based on the premise of helping the vehicle operator see upcoming changing traffic signals, pedestrians on and around the road, and ultimately helping aid in the avoidance of accidents.
The vehicle is said to either verbally notify a driver of an upcoming possible traffic issue, but also project an image on the vehicle’s consol. Ultimately, we can only hope that technology similar to this is installed in many automobiles in the future to not only promote safer driving on the road, but to also simply make it happen.
