Technology for Car Accidents

Posted on : May 13, 2020

Car accidents are one of the leading causes of death worldwide. While accidents do happen, technology has been developed to prevent accidents as much as possible. New technology is developed over time when more and more people begin to blunder during their everyday activities. Whether you have trouble navigating, backing up, or staying in your own lane, technological advancements have been designed to assist drivers, and more recently, drive for them. 

The first back-up camera was used in the 1956 Buick Centurion concept car. It wasn’t until 2018 when the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration required all cars to have a back-up camera installed as a standard feature. This feature is preventative against backing up into an object or pedestrian and is extremely useful for cars with large blind spots.

Lane departure warning is a car feature that can prevent a distracted driver from getting into a wreck. The lane departure warning uses sensors to alert a driver with either a buzz or sound to prevent them from veering into another lane. An even smarter technological feature is the lane-keeping system that can nudge the vehicle back into the lane which it veered from.
