When you hear the words “electric vehicle paradise”, you immediately think of a future where robots are running everything. But that future may be closer than we think, as this small Scandinavian country has shown. Norway is home to a lot of electric vehicles, and by a lot, we mean, A LOT.Read More
There was a time not too long ago when autonomous driving was something only found in science fiction novels or shows. The time has arrived, where over the next decade, the car industry is set to undergo the biggest changes it has seen in 30 years. As we stand at the entrance to a new era of automated driving, let’s get a closer look at the five levels of autonomy, and its interconnection between the driver, the car, and the world.
The world’s state of constant technological growth has created a long list of new career options that probably didn’t exist even just ten years ago. Parents and students everywhere are preparing early for the way the world is shifting by making life decisions that will eventually lead to them to working in high-tech careers in the future. However, there is a common assumption that the only way to be a part of that high-tech wave is to pursue a path through scientific fields of study.Read More
In many ways, this is thanks to movies and popular entertainment that has drawn up visions of a future where artificial intelligence becomes so advanced that robots will take over the world. While it remains to be seen what the future of artificial intelligence will entail, its advocates are focusing more on its utilities, and how artificial intelligence could help us as human beings improve the quality of our lives and reduce the challenges that we face on a daily basis.
An alarm system is a crucial piece of equipment for any car. Designed to go off if someone was trying to break into the vehicle, an alarm system works to protect your car by attracting attention to a possible break-in and deterring a would-be car thief . Unfortunately, no piece of car equipment works perfectly 100% of the time. Sometimes, a car’s alarm can be triggered even though there is nothing and no one around it.Read More
Boeing Co., the company most famous for making military and commercial planes has finally unveiled that its flying car, designed to fly passengers over city streets and dodge skyscrapers has completed its first test flight. Its prototype, dubbed passenger air vehicle (PAV), managed to complete a controlled takeoff, hover and landing during the test conducted in Manassas, Virginia.Read More
Technology in the automotive industry has evolved to a stage where cars are all connected via apps and advanced dashboard features. However, as with every piece of technology, there is a fear of viruses and hackers. Today, all these risks are becoming more relevant to the car. Carmakers are increasingly trying to beef up their in-car security systems to prevent hackers from manipulating the built-in safety protocols and other cyber attacks.Read More
The recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is a place where brands create the most unimaginable, unbuildable prototypes of ideas that could have been. These concepts are futuristic, and not unlike something from a sci-fi movie. However, at the 2019 edition, there may be one real winner of the most insane car concept.Read More
The sheer volume of software and sensors in new vehicles, combined with artificial intelligence that can sift through data at ever-quickening speeds, means new services and revenue streams are quickly emerging. The data is generated by the car’s onboard sensors and computers, and then stored by the auto maker in cloud-based servers. Some new cars have as many as 100 built-in processors that generate data.Read More
When it comes to getting a new car, safety is one of the biggest factors to consider. However, despite technology rapidly growing, advanced driver assistance systems which help to boost up the safety of the car are bumping up the price of car repairs. According to a survey by the American Automobile Association (AAA), these new technologies, among them blind spot monitors, lane keeping assistance and forward collision warnings, are used to help keep drivers safer on the roads.Read More
Self-driving allows for a greater degree of independence and control over your movements, which is great, but it begs the question, “How do I drive without a local driving license?”. This is a key question to ask yourself, especially before you decide to approach a car rental company to choose your vehicle. Odds are, they’ll require a valid driving license from you before they can let you use one of their motor vehicles. Here’s the thing: A Malaysian driving license can still be used overseas to operate a motor vehicle. However, regulations differ from country to country, so you’ll have to do your own research. If travelling and self-driving is something you do more often than most people, than perhaps what you need is an International Driver’s Permit or IDP.Read More
Now cars – We don’t just drive a car. We pretty much live in it. According to some Googling, Malaysians spend around 53 minutes a day, stuck in traffic. If you’re a KL-ite you’re probably laughing since you’ve done the 3-hour jam. Even then, an hour a day in a car, that’s around 300 hours a year and that’s about 12 full days! Think about this: If your loved one was going to be in a car for 12 days… Would you not want them to have everything that could keep them safe? A car’s kind off a scary thing after all, just a hunk of metal hurtling through air. So without further ado, here’s a list of some must have tech that can keep you safe while you’re on the road!Read More
