The Toronto Auto Show is on now, and this year showcases some exciting new vehicles. The past few years have seen the introduction of some interesting innovations in vehicles. In addition to becoming more fuel-efficient, cars are also advancing greatly in terms of safety. In the quest for full autonomous driving, automakers are pioneering some incredible safety technology that will help protect occupants from serious collisions. The Tesla is a remarkable example of how far autonomous driving technology has come already. Given that this is just the beginning, we may see a massive shift in the auto industry over the next decade. Many cars already offer active collision avoidance technology. These vehicles can sense objects ahead and behind, and can automatically apply the brakes to avoid a collision. There are also a number of sensors, warning devices and cameras that are becoming standard across the industry. We expect that over the next decade cars will advance considerably in terms of safety. As vehicles become ever more connected, they will communicate with each other and with traffic control devices, in order to avoid collisions.
If you are in the market for a new car, the Toronto auto show is a great place to start looking and comparing vehicles. While car style is appealing, you should also compare available safety features and crash test ratings when selecting a new vehicle.
