Car Technologies We Wish to See for Real

Globalization have opened up the availability of technologies to various people and to suit their various needs. Continuous rise in consumption, demand and necessities have forced the scientists and researchers to explore the undiscovered zones with new thinking and new possibilities. The face of automobiles has underwent innumerable changes, right from its inception which was more than a century ago. Invention of newer materials, reliable and non-destructive test methods, computer-aided design and analysis, controlled environment, etc., have soared the level of technologies to new heights. Literally, there is no end to development as long as humans stop thinking. Some of the most advanced technologies that are being imparted to automobiles are delineated here.

Mitsubishi EMIRAI Car Interface Technology

The technology

Mitsubishi’s EMIRAI features a tactile interface for the driver to access the vehicle’s various functions, at the comfort of the steering wheel. Its unparalleled biometric system offers exotic safety and amazing driveability.

Difference it’ll make

Unlike other manufacturers, Mitsubishi enthralls the driving experience apart from adding physical sophistication. Its innovative technology includes shape-modifying buttons on the steering wheel that pop up only when required. Therefore the driver need not move his/her eyes away from the road to look on where to press his/her fingers thus helping in reducing the number of accidents. The instrument panel on the dashboard features a curved, rear projection display that shows information about several performance parameters as well as the driver’s health conditions like heart rate, facial temperature, etc.

Nissan’s Mind Reading Technology

The technology

Nissan has joined hands with the Switzerland scientists to impart a ‘Brain Machine Interface’ into its vehicle, that could predict the driver’s future moves by analyzing his/her actions and behavior through possible means.

Difference it’ll make

If technology could predict the driver’s thoughts while driving, it could act instantly to his/her commands, much before than he/she can move his/her body parts. Literally, the driver could be able to control his/her car with the thoughts alone, which doesn’t require any physical confirmation. Unparalleled safety could be achieved if this technology is imparted successfully on cars.

Mercedes-Benz’s DICE concept

The technology

Dynamic Intuitive Control Experience (DICE) is essentially a button-less intelligent system that recognizes driver’s signs and hand gestures through various proximity sensors and takes action accordingly.

Difference it’ll make

Mercedes Benz’s DICE opens up new space in mobility and technology that blooms the users with greater comfort and freedom. Literally, it develops an intimate connection between the humans and the machine by seeking physical actions to communicate as we do with other human beings. In addition, this technology allows the users to concentrate on the roads without diverting attention to the vehicle’s infotainment.

Aeon Project flying car

The technology

Aeon is an unconventional design of a futuristic car that could provide a sustainable transportation with sophisticated amenities, especially for the tourists and travelers.

Difference it’ll make

If this technology could be brought into reality, one could literally travel anywhere around the world by air or by land, with generous information about the surroundings. This technology is imagined as an unconventional oval-shaped vehicle with navigational aids and functions displayed on the front panel. On the manually driven mode, its steering wheel is designed to pop up from the space where one could identify the dashboard on a conventional vehicle.

Mercedes-Benz Biome Concept

The technology

Similar to seeds sown in a nursery, Mercedes Benz’s Biome concept is an organic hybrid that was designed to co-exist with nature, by producing its own utilizable oxygen molecules and by purifying the air surrounding it.

Difference it’ll make

Though the design seems to be too imaginary, Mercedes Benz’s designers have affirmed to impart certain ecological features into this concept. On successful production, this car could deliver a sustainable and eco-friendly transport opportunities.

GM Self-driving vehicle

The technology

With the optimal utilization of advanced technologies like radars, on-board cameras, sophisticated sensors, GPS, etc., an intelligent computer could be able to drive the vehicle on its own.

Difference it’ll make

People can enjoy stress-free journeys, if cars could be driven by itself. In addition, GM is designing this concept with a manual driving facility as well so that people could enjoy driving this car, if they wish. Information about every object around the vehicle are collected through its sensors, and the automatic driving feature is coded to offer maximum safety for the travelers.

Semi-Rigid Car concept

The technology

Semi-Rigid Car is imagined to possess a molecular structure similar to a biological organism, so that the actual car offers unparalleled flexibility. In addition, this concept is designed to generate its own fuel as well.

Difference it’ll make

Use of high-strength flexible materials like polymers, rubbers, resins, silicone, etc., would very well absorb the impact forces during high-speed collisions. Designed to extract its power from algae, SRC’s flexibility would allow it to be folded and transported away, in case of an emergency.

Metromorph Concept Car

The technology

Metromorph portrays a sophisticated design of an automobile that could climb walls like an elevator. It is especially designed to slide on the sides of skyscrapers at ease.

Difference it’ll make

Parking problems could be averted if this concept could be incorporated in an automobile. As the vehicle acts as an elevator as well, it could be used as a spacious balcony in the multi-storey flats. To be literal, this concept utilizes the possibilities of two-dimensional traveling towards its maximum limit.

Toyota Fun-Vii concept car

The technology

Fun-Vii equips a futuristic touch panel that connects the users with dealers, commuters, friends and other people with just a touch on the display panel. The manufacturer boosts this car as a smartphone on four wheels.

Difference it’ll make

The direction of modern technologies is towards providing exotic safety and sumptuous comfort for the passengers. It is evident from Toyota’s Fun-Vii concept which has the capacity to change its internal and external colors according to the driver’s mood. The vehicle’s external panel could be utilized as a display screen through which the driver can access its sophisticated features. In addition, an autopilot system, voice assisted navigation system and internet accessibility connects the driver with the roads, by means of unconventional ways.
