Infographic: Where next for future car technology?

From autopilot to holographic windscreens. Find out where automakers are going with future car technology.

The following blog post was provided courtesy of our friends at Dryve.com. Check out the infographic below to learn more about what's in store for our cars in he future.

Automotive technology waits for no driver. Every day, manufacturers are investing millions of dollars and a gargantuan effort into developing the next technological innovation that will set new models apart from anything that has gone before. That is why we’re now talking about autonomous cars as a realistic proposition rather than a utopian concept, the stuff of sci-fi movies.

Other ways in which technology is changing the driving experience is through hologram graphics on windscreens practically replacing the information that traditionally appeared on your dashboard. Rather than looking down to check your speed or see how much fuel you’ve left until the need to top up, this information can appear in hologram form on your windscreen. Another feature likely to become reality is biometric vehicle access and start. We’ve already seen keyless entry and ignition, but how about being able to get into your car and start the engine with your thumbprint? 

This infographic was originally posted at Dryve.comDryve gives you a window into the products, services, changes, rules, players and innovation that will change the way we drive. And provides thoughtful commentary on what these changes will bring.

Many individuals and local authorities have already jumped on the opportunity to remind users to drive safely. There are even signs popping up on highways to encourage safer driving.

Luckily, there are tools out there to help the tech-obsessed (or the poke-obsessed) improve their driving. One of our favorites is an app called TrueMotion Family! The app analyzes your driving in order to provide you with a score - and insights as to how you drive. It's perfect for parents who want to monitor their teen drivers. The app gives parents the power to see where their kids drive, and produces a 'report card' on their driving in addition to an assessment of whether they were driving distracted (using their cell phone). Plus, families have access to roadside assistance on-demand from right within the TrueMotion app.

I don’t remember Ash, Misty, or Brock driving cars in their quest to be the very best, like no one ever was. And there aren’t vehicles any in PokemonGO. At Urgent.ly, we love the game and just like you, we’re prepared to travel across the land searching far and wide to catch 'em all, but we encourage you to put safety first in your travels! Remember that the power of Pokemon is awesome in augmented reality but automobiles are a powerful tool meant for use in the real world and require optimum focus to operate safely. In a world we must defend, you can start by driving safely, and catch and train ‘em all when you’re not operating a vehicle.
