We often watch in awe as new auto industry innovations come to light year after year. We wait with bated breaths and anticipation over what the future could bring to how we drive vehicles in the future. But when will we realize car designs such as flight, talking cars and auto-driving vehicles? The future may come sooner than we think!
While true self-driving vehicles could become viable in the next 5 years, Cruise has already begun the revolution with a self-driving automobile system that could be installed onto existing cars. The sensor units pick up on driving and steering as the computer takes care of the distance between the vehicle and any road obstacles. It allows cars to accelerate, brake and steer their way safely to the destination.
How about a folding car that takes up nearly half of its original size? The Armadillo is one of the best head-spinning future vehicle innovations. It’s a small car that sports a foldable back that could be moved on top of the front side.
The ability to travel trans-continental with nothing more than your vehicle will soon become reality. Features such as retractable wings, capable engines and a small-ish body could potentially enable a car to land and fly from anywhere in the world, needing only a small strip of flat land.
Forget about the current all-terrain vehicles- the future car will be able to fly, land, drive on land and operate on top of the waves and beneath it. Imagine pressing one button and waiting for your car to be water-proof in just under 30 seconds. Instead of wheels, propellers will come out and move your car forward. In 5 years from now, cars will become submarines and speed through seas and oceans at a speedy 75mph.
Alternative Fuel Vehicles
Gas is a finite resource that will eventually be replaced by more viable, renewable sources. Car companies and auto innovators will be scrambling to find the next fuel source- will it be electricity, or a totally green alternative? There are current research teams exploring the viability of hydrogen, or even cars that could run off compressed air. The future is indeed pollution-free.
In any which way car innovations could take, the drivers and passengers should ensure total safety and make it a priority they get to the destination in a sound manner. Road safety comes first, now and in the future. The risk of car accidents continues to rise as more and more people get on the road driving various vehicles like cars, trucks, motorcycles, and limousines.
Did you know that around 4 million people have been injured just for the year 2015 alone across the United States? What’s more, road traffic injuries are predicted to become the 5th leading cause of death by the year 2030. Should you experience a sudden situation where knowledge of the law is important in relation to car accidents and personal injuries, you can find it here…Read more
