Currently, cars are already learning to move on their own, can connect to the Internet, becoming increasingly safer and more comfortable.
Since the beginning of the year, car manufacturers have shown the world a dozen interesting technologies that may well become mass-produced in the near future.
Many of them are already appearing in serial cars in one form or another, and everything will be even more interesting in the future. In our article, we made a list of the most promising technologies that would appear at serial models right this year.
The dwindling supply of fossil fuels and the environmental damage caused by their use requires encouraging the use of electric vehicles.
Even Mercedes-Benz plans to produce a battery-powered G-Class. No surprise that once the army’s utilitarian SUV, which has become the true flagship of the premium Mercedes G-class will take the best from the modern technologies.
The G-Class is preparing for the era of all-electric vehicles, it stays true to its heritage with the EQG concept – the original “G”.
It is not yet clear when the EQG will be put on the assembly line. However, there is no doubt it will be happening at the end of 2022 – the beginning of 2023. And surely you can be the first to ride it in Dubai, thanks to SUV rental in Dubai.
As they say – it’s always better to try the technology on a rental car, and then buy it for yourself. But as for electric cars – you can rent them even now, and you’ll be surprised with their power.
Especially taking into account the fact that rental services provide the best possible conditions for locals as well as for tourists.
With the widespread use of electric vehicles, problems such as high prices, poor battery performance are left behind. BMW has shown another version of the iX electric crossover ready for production.
The M60 is its most powerful variant and the most sporty. Two electric motors in total give 540 hp and 1015 Nm but briefly can develop 619 hp and 1100 Nm. This characteristic makes the iX M60 as fast as the petrol BMW X5 M Competition.
Autonomous Vehicles (AV)
Autonomous vehicles or autonomously driven vehicles seek to minimize the need for human drivers and appear ready to transform everyday transportation. AV fleets are expanding last-mile deliveries, reducing downtime, and looking to make mass transit relatively safe.
For example, by reducing accidents caused by driver fatigue or carelessness. Vehicles are equipped with advanced recognition technology, such as computer vision with advanced artificial intelligence to detect obstacles in the route.
For the past five years, all of the world’s biggest automakers have been working on building self-driving automobiles. Every major automaker reports that its unmanned vehicle prototypes go thousands of kilometers in testing.
Volvo demonstrated its model in Gothenburg, which, owing to sensors, GPS, and other technologies, nearly eliminate the possibility of an accident occurring.
Toyota recently revealed its intention to join the ranks of “self-driving” automobile makers, while Tesla Motors brought its first “drone” drive technology to market.
The most noteworthy is U.S.-based startup Udelv which provides unmanned vehicles for last-mile deliveries. It combines advanced artificial intelligence algorithms and ultrafast teleoperations to assist humans in unique situations.
The startup’s vans have a payload capacity of approx. 800+ pounds and reach speeds of up to 60 mph. The vans deliver groceries from nearby stores and send push notifications when an order arrives.
BMW designers have created laser headlights that are 1,000 times brighter than diode headlights (today, only half the brightness is utilized to save power consumption), as well as a system that spotlights people in the path of the automobile.
Instead of fog lights, dynamic LightSpot spotlights are incorporated and powered by a system similar to adaptive cornering lights. The technology detects people by their body temperature and silhouette and lights them with a single beam using infrared sensors and cameras.
Because the device has two spotlights, it can direct light beams behind two walkers at the same time.
Now the technology is coming to the mass segment as well – Ford offers Glare-Free Highbeam headlights.
The system works with adaptive LED headlights that can change the direction and intensity of the light beam, taking into account speed, steering angle, and information from the front camera that monitors incoming or passing cars.
The device monitors the headlights of oncoming cars at a distance of up to 800 meters. For the first time, the new development will be used on S-Max and Galaxy cars.
