Does artificial intelligence could change the world? The technology of modern vehicles amazingly soars high.
Elon Musk, the South-African-born Canadian-American business magnate, engineer, and founder of Tesla car business, was known for pushing the boundaries of its new ‘driveless car’ technology.
The autopilot feature of its Model S was released as a software update. It has technology that allows a car to change lanes and brake on its own, among other things.
However, the said feature is under scrutiny after it emerged that a Tesla driver was killed while using it last year.
But Tesla Motors said its autopilot feature is improving all the time.
And that its drivers have travelled more than 200 million kilometres in autopilot without incident.
Meanwhile, the Toyota Technical Centre in California takes spin in Toyota’s brand new HFCV or ‘hydrogen fuel cell vehicles’.
The fuel pump into these cars is hydrogen gas. In fact, water is its only emission. Energy is created in the fuel cell through a reaction with hydrogen in the tanks with oxygen from the air, the end result, electricity and water.
Toyota had been working on this kind of technology for over 20 years, their model has been tested in different extreme conditions and they are the first company to roll out a consumer version.
In Ann Arbor, Michigan, a V2V or vehicle-to-vehicle technology was introduced. To explore V2V technology, it is a Wi-Fi type system that will allow every vehicle on the road to “talk” to each other at short-range, calculating danger and issuing warnings.
Nine major carmakers are working together to bolster V2V technology—the unusual kind of communication for safer driving.
Automakers have recently accelerated their efforts to fast track their car production.
Exploring this latest innovation may definitely change the future of cars, and how the driver and the vehicle could ingeniously work together is definitely quite challenging.
