Technological improvements in the automotive world continue to reach an unprecedented pace, and now it seems that Israel is also beginning to make the necessary adjustments to the new and connected era
It is customary to see the technology of vehicles as a symbol of the development of global technology. Indeed, just like the rest of the technology around us, from the moment cars became a product to the masses at 1908, and up to about 1995, there were not really huge technological improvements in this world. But in the last two decades, the leap in the technology world has not gone away and the future looks closer than ever.
The driving experience has been an integral part of the existence of certain inventions - for example, the entry of car radio at 1930 shows the huge impact that this medium has had around the world. The same goes for the 1965 tape recorder or the 1985 disc. Even the widespread entry of flights has affected the car, as 1949 has already made a real attempt to make a flying car.
There have been some technological advances that have indeed changed the way we do, but they came in dripping. The first, as stated, was at 1908, when Ford developed the T model of his vehicle. It was the first vehicle mounted on a moving tape and thus got a price car which the public could afford and cars no longer became just a matter for the rich. At 1956 the power steering came into the cars and made life easier for all of us. Yes, already 60 ago.
In 1963, the 1984, the 1994, and the 16 have come into actual use. 1925 pins that sit under the dashboard and help each mechanic know exactly what the condition of the vehicle, changed the way that find faults. The personal computer, which has become a must in every home, also goes into cars and from that moment, as with all the previous ones, on XNUMX, the cigarette lighter, without which we had no place to charge the phone today. Technology, developments have not stopped coming.
In 1995,GPS Compass, And actually took the first step in a car that is smart for the user and not just the mechanic. God-GPS Compass Obviated the need for maps, helped people reach unfamiliar destinations easily, enabled people to drive to their destinations quickly and easily, and putting them on the window turned the dangerous gaze down toward the map. In 2000, the US president ordered all satellites to send information with which the GPS devices would be navigated and the device became almost entirely domestic vehicle.
From the time the device is embedded in vehicles, their digitization has begun to flourish - systems that call and alert for accidents, brake lock prevention systems, accident prevention sensors and fully autonomous vehicles, which travel completely without driver intervention. In recent years there have been crazy technological leaps. And as is always the case with vehicles, when technology has only emerged from the technical realm and has also shifted to human power, the vehicles take part in that.
The last years are years in which the technology world has learned a new concept - a sharing economy. Into the social idea at its core, where anyone can create and develop independently of large organizations, the tech world provides a significant boost. Home-sharing apps, non-bank lending companies, and online shopping directly from suppliers have become commonplace. Of course, the same sharing economy is in the automotive world.
Auber, for example, has completely undermined the taxi world. At first they were a company that provided luxury cars as taxis to those who preferred to reach their destinations in style. But then was created UberX, A service that allows anyone to be a taxi driver. You get a message and can go pick up passengers and make some money from the side. Recently, the price of travel in Over has become cheaper than a taxi, and so new technology has changed the existing market.
In the field of car rental, the market underwent a serious shake-up. Initially, rentals vehicle Were at least for a whole day, and they often demanded an advance order. Then entered businesses such as Car2Go which allowed rental vehicle For as many hours as you want. The rental used technology that already exists - the Internet, and all that a person has to do is ask for a company website vehicle Then approach a parked vehicle close to its location. But since the rental world took another step forward.
Now there is Peer To Peer Carsharing - Anyone can rent their vehicle while not using it. The companies that operate such services, such as Zipcar, take percentages of the transactions, and they also provide insurance in the event that someone gets hurt or hits the vehicle. So far, there have been only a few cases. And if you already have something that is unused for rent, there is a solution in the car parking area as well. Pink Park Allow anyone to rent their parking when not using it. Sharing took over every possible field.
The Internet has also changed the way we buy cars. In the United States, people hardly ever go into agencies to buy vehicle. Previously, to buy vehicle, People have moved between many agencies, but today people are first checking the online offerings. And among the sales tables on the Net, we can see constant improvement in Israel.
Even him GPS Compass Significant changes have taken place over the years in the cooperative economy. Waze actually took the idea of navigation and added to its community. With God's help-GPS Compass, And checking the speed of the vehicle, any driver that the app is open to him, actually sends information on the amount of traffic jams on the road so Waze not only steers you to the road, but also offers the driver the fastest way, that is the least plugged.
Waze administrators have not stopped with the navigation and sharing idea and have recently launched the Waze Carpool Designed for travel sharing. People who use the app actually share travel and share fuel costs. Since this is a multi-user journey, the question of insurance arose as a problem but this was resolved when Waze began To cooperate with the direct insurance company And that announced that Mandatory compulsory insurance The car also catches up when it comes to a multi-passenger journey. Add to this the possibility of buying even online car insurance, and here the revolution of the vehicle has moved entirely to the virtual fields.
The future of the vehicles seems equally interesting. Autonomous vehicles are only in their infancy, and questions arise regarding insurance, driver's liability, self-control options, and more. But if there is something the automotive industry has already proven is that every problem has a solution, and the solution, for the most part, lies in the advanced technologies around us.
