Every sector of the economy relies on technology. In the 21st century, sectors in the economy complete in term of how much a sector has used and adopted the technology. The recent massive technology adoption has been in the transport industry. The manufactures of vessels are making every effort to see to it that the vehicles use technology in their functioning. The inbuilt vehicle technology has become very useful to drivers as well as owners of the vehicles. So, let us see the common in-vehicle technology and how they help drivers
Speed monitoring technology
Speed technology is a very important to drivers. Speed monitoring technology incorporates a number of things. First, there is a speed governor that monitors the speed of vehicles. It involves a mechanism that prevents the speed of a vehicle from exceeding a certain limit. Normally public service vehicles are required to maintain a certain speed limit.
This can only be achieved where all these vehicles are fitted with speed limiters. With the use of speed limiters, the driver doesn’t need to keep minding about contravening traffic laws. The second component of speed monitor is the speed recorders. These are a device that records the speed of a vehicle all through a journey for a specific number of days. The owners can monitor how the driver has been driving the vehicle for some time with the help of this technology.
Temperature regulation technology
The temperatures in vehicles mean one thing, comfort. In the past, people had to keep opening and closing the windows to regulate the temperature. It was tiresome and sometimes would make the driver less attentive on the road and can lead to accidents. This has changed.
The manufactures of modern vehicles have incorporated an aspect called self-temperature regulator. Using this technology the vehicle can adjust the inside temperature to the desired room temperature. They are designed to work as warmer and coolers. These technologies are fitted in the dashboard of the vehicles and automatically starts to work when a car is started.
Most cars nowadays are fitted with accident detectors. Using this technology, a car can reduce the damage and injuries to travelers in case of an accident. The first technology is a sensor fitted in front of the vehicle and behind the vehicle. This sensor senses an obstacle in the front of the car and initiates emergency brake to prevent the car from colliding. The second sensors are fitted in the seats. When the car hits obstacles, it initiates the removal of airbags that prevent the passengers from sustaining injuries.
