As 2016 winds down, we wanted to look back on the year that was in the automotive world. With innovations in transportation and safety, this past year saw significant changes in how we drive. At Steve Landers Collision Center in Little Rock, we love it when automakers put a premium on safety. Looking back, we are covering three of the best safety innovations of 2016.
Adaptive Cruise Control: While the adaptive cruise control technology has been around for a few years, 2016 saw big improvements in the ability to keep its distance. Adaptive cruise control is an important safety feature as it helps keep cars away from each other and out of accidents.
Complete Safety Suites: Suites like Honda Sensing have become more accessible, meaning more people can utilize the entire set of features. While full suites have been around, companies have begun to put them on lower trim levels. On new Honda models, their suite is standard on the second trim and up, and other companies are following the trim. While the suite will work to protect you in a crash, they are also helpful in preventing them.
Autonomous Driving Improvements: It has been an up and down year for driverless cars. While the systems have encountered controversy, they programs have improved significantly. Companies like Google have made continuing strides in their program, while Uber has partnered with the city of Pittsburgh to put self-driving cars. As driverless cars improve, lives will undoubtedly be saved.
