• Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Technology Available Now

    New technologies to make driving easier, more fuel efficient, and to increase performance.

    Evasive Steering Assist

    Evasive Steering Assist uses radar and a camera to detect slower moving and stationary vehicles ahead, and provides steering support to enable drivers to avoid a vehicle if a collision is imminent.

    Augmented Reality User Manual

    This new app, available for both iPhone and Android, lets you point your phone at different parts of the car - 45 different parts, to be exact - 2D and 3D overlays will identify what what you are looking at, and link to information, overlays, and maintenance directions for such things as the air filter, engine oil, and brake fluid, along with explanations of in-car features like dynamic cruise control and Bluetooth phone pairing.

    Automatic Stop/Start

    Automatic stop/start shuts off the engine (rather than idling) at a stop and then rapidly restarts the engine when you drive away. In stop-and-go driving, it reduces emissions and saves fuel by not idling for extended periods.

    Automatic Brake Hold

    Brake Hold automatically keeps the brakes engaged after a complete stop is made. The driver is then able to remove his or her foot from the brake pedal without the car rolling forward or backwards. When the driver presses the gas pedal the vehicle automatically releases the brake.

    Automatic Sensing Gadgets

    Our cars can now sense much of the environment around them, along with the adaptive headlights and steering, and automatic drivetrains mentioned above, our cars can now provide:

    Rain-sensing Wipers Cabin Climate Control Distracted Driver Detection Tire Pressure Monitor
    windshield wiper climate control distracted driver tire pressure
    Rain-sensing wipers are designed to clear the windshield of rain, snow, and debris without driver intervention. They automatically activate and alter speed and rate to keep outward visibility unobstructed at all times. With automatic climate control vehicle occupants can set their preferred temperature and the system will manage the heating, air conditioning, and vents to maintain that temperature independently of other occupants. This system monitors the driver’s head and eyes to ensure they are up and facing forward, that the eyes are open, and monitors steering patterns and lane keeping. The system gives an alert if it detects drowsing or distraction. With this system, a warning light on the dashboard will light up if your tire pressure is low. You no longer have to get out of the car, crouch down, and struggle with the tire pressure gauge to check your tire pressure.

    Voice Activated Controls

    Cars are also incorporating voice controls for many systems, some through smart phone technology or household personal assistant technology such as iPhone’s CarPlay, Android Auto, or Amazon’s Alexa, others with proprietary systems that are also able to manage the climate control system.
