When capital is not an issue, and you can afford to spend, you can easily customize your “toys” and have them run on the road with the speed of light. To cater to the need of people who want to drive spaceships instead of car, luxury car manufacturers are taking customization to a whole new level. The incredible features of today’s high-end vehicles go beyond voice activation and lane-changing safety.
Tech toys on wheels
Some of the most recent demands in car tech centers on luxury design that increases comfort level, enhanced connectivity, and memorable driving experiences. The newest auto luxuries include advanced technologies that blend wireless, the IoT and data science to craft genuine masterpieces.
Savvy buyers want sublime comfort when getting behind the wheel of their digital toys on wheels. But at the same time, they want high-end materials and extraordinary performance. Porsche recently made a seat that can be adjusted in 18 different ways, to make sure it molds perfectly after the posture of the driver. In terms of safety, manufacturers are aiming to keep the driver focused on the road by eliminating distractions.
In-depth advances for your digital toy on wheels
If you’re car enthusiast, in-depth tech advances embedded into your favorite model are a must-have. Those that can afford to spend want their vehicles to be both a moving and a living medium. They want to be connected not just to the internet when they’re behind the wheel, but also to data sensors that support cloud-based applications.
The mere act of starting the engine no longer resumes to the act of driving, but also to the act of “communicating”. When data is streamed we want our seat to mold after the shape of our body, and we want our climate control features to be GPS-connected and function intuitively. It’s ok to assume that car fanatics want their custom toys to “sense”, literally. They also want them to learn and respond to commands are fast as possible. When you’re behind the wheel, you’re basically interacting with your car.
Porsche’s latest smart features, Porsche Connect Plus and Porsche Innodrive, rely greatly on complex sensor technology that act like a concierge and protector for the driver. Mercedes’s newest Maybach model can “learn” the driver’s habits, as well as recognize when he’s feeling stressed. In essence, it is able to design a custom health system and even provide advice and encourage the driver to take a break and breathe.
Going all-in on connectivity
Increasingly more manufacturers are acknowledging the need for connected cars. At this point, most luxury design feature upgraded packages, so that you can take your “toy” to get a makeover. Some of the best and most thrived for offerings are the Google Street View and Apply CarPlay features.
Feel free to make your pick and decide on the extra you want to implement into your luxury vehicle. For some extra peace of mind, you can easily add more security, safety and remote access features. Or, go for emergency assistance like silent alarm and airbag deploys. The choices are endless.
The Attention Assist feature compatible with Maybach models is excellent because it helps drivers track eye line, making sure the driver doesn’t fall asleep while on the road. Put your car to good use – your Maybach can monitor your pulse and even release fragrances and play adjustable sounds to keep you feeling good and energized when driving.
Smart safety features
The BMW 7 Series is constantly targeting the needs of the driver. The embedded features are all about improving night vision. BMW has targeted the tech to busy business people working on smart devices and computers all day; by upgrading its safety features, the cars warns you that you lack focus, and that you should take a break because you’re too tired to drive.
Today’s high-tech vehicles are slowly becoming our new personal assistants. The added technology is not just smart, but intelligent. The AI integrated in the available upgrades is transforming the mere habit of driving a car, into a habit of interacting with the car. Porsche with its Porsche parts shop, BMW with its night vision upgrades are living proof that our cars are amazing at making trips from A to B seamless.
