If you want to buy a car in 2016, you surely want to have access to as much technology as possible. After all, this makes the car safer and easier to drive. We now have access to so many features and equipment that makes our purchase quite difficult. Because of this, let us stay focused on some 2016 automotive technology that you really need to have.
Advanced Backup Cameras
Backup cameras are not new but the newer 2016 models will have various advanced features that will make use even better. This includes top-down car view and multiple angle toggle. You basically want to see advanced backup cameras installed because there are situations in which tight space maneuvering is really difficult even for professional drivers. The backup cameras make everything really easy. An example of such a backup camera system is the Around View Monitor from the Infinity car. Even the Prius has something special added with the 2016 model.
Augmented Reality Owner Manual
This is technology that most people do not even know exist. The principle is simple. Instead of using a regular owner manual, the augmented reality models will make it incredibly easy to gain the information you need by just pointing at a car part. In the event that you do not know how to do something, you point the smart device to the item that you want to use. In return, you get all the data that you need about it. You will find such a system on the 2016 Hyundai models but it is also available with other cars, some even from 2015.
We are slowly but surely going towards the auto driving feature that most car drivers want and need. Automated steering is a great first step. The technology will take the common lane keep assistance system towards a whole new level by simply adding steering additions based on specific situations. The systems highlight that the autonomous car is just around the corner. Safety is really high since such technology will help you in the event that you fall asleep at the wheel.
Better Smartphone Integration With Infotainment Systems
Infotainment systems were not really popular and it is easy to understand why since not much was offered. In 2016 we have access to a step forward in the right direction thanks to the development of systems like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Since most people have smartphones out there, connecting them with the infotainment system is something that seemed to be normal but was not accessible. Now it is and the truth is that you can do so many things with the systems that you want to look at them to see everything.
As cities become more crowded, parking your vehicle becomes a huge problem. We all know that most people have problems with parking so self-parking systems were developed to give a huge helping hand. This technology uses sensors and cameras, together with extra in-car technology in order to park the car in various parking spaces. You do not need to lift one finger. The car is basically a modern Knight Rider car, at least when it comes to parking. Auto pilot is still just a dream at the moment. However, Google does seem to be pretty close to developing a car that actually drives itself.
