Digital Technology in Your Car

Digital Technology in Your Car

Here is an infographic from Allianz called Digital Technology in Your Car that illustrates current technology in our cars to keep us safe and entertain us.

Digital technology has transformed and continues to transform every aspect of our lives. In the motor industry, technology developed throughout the years has enhanced our safety and comfort. The introduction of modern safety mechanisms such as lane departure warning and brake assist systems as well as iphone applications such as Driver Reviver and Car Butler has seen technology faithfully assisting drivers in times of need. With technology advancing and disseminating at a rapid rate, Global Positioning System units have already become a staple accessory in Australian cars.

There’s not much in the way of data visualizations in this one, but it does tell a good story about the history of new technology in your car, and what’s coming soon.  There’s too much text, but the use of icons and illustrations helps the story.  

I’m not sure what all the dead space at the bottom is.  Plenty of room for the copyright, company logo, URL to the original landing page and even a mention of the designer.

Bring on the self-driving cars!

I love all of this new safety tech. As long as it is saving lives I feel like it is useful. (That's where I would have liked to see some data on these new systems). The entertainment aspects are a nice addition too, but as long as they don't distract the driver in my opinion.

I recently read in an article that children are many times more distracting to a driver than texting/calling while driving. A very interesting statistic. Quite a nice accidental safety plus to families!

Thanks for the cool infographic.

Cheers,
Brendon

There was a time when driving car used to be considered as a boring job and that is why people often use to opt for public transportation when it comes to drive a long way or use to appoint a driver for the job. But the scenario have been changed now with a number of digital tech associated with the car now a days. People are ready to drive hundreds of miles with ought any disturbance.
