Desired Features/Technology

19 posts in this topic

C&G:

I'm wondering people's thoughts/opinions on what new technology or features they would like to see integrated into future vehicles.

For example, iPod/AuxIn features are hot now. Nav systems were a few years ago. So what is next, Tivo's, etc?

Edit: I'd like to keep the ideas centered around integration of new electronics or "creature features". Any ideas for expanding OnStar? Radio display screen customizations? Input like that....

Let me know, thanks!

p.s. It's for a class project ...

I say you should look at the new S-class, which is always a few years ahead of the curve in hot technology.

Yeah, but in the field of practical technologies...I'd like to see HUDs make a third return in popularity, preferrably multicolored and customizable.

I guess I'm somehow on the same boat as you. I'm gathering ideas for my 4th year project. I wrote this and nobody really looked at it...

About .2L displacement boost and 22 extra horsepower and torque for my truck.

1. Allow users/tuners to connect to their car via a wireless connection. Let them change their shift points, or tune their car upwards/downwards. I'd assume that most cars are built around a happy medium: that their vehicle's powertrain is set to deliver a balance between gas mileage and fuel economy. As an owner, give me the ability to pick better performance or better gas mileage.

2. Embed a hard drive in your dash and integrate it with the radio. Hard drives are cheap. How hot would it be to upload your music library to your car... or transfer music between your ipod/cd and your car?

3. Replace your existing dash/gauges with a small LCD screen. Allow me to upload pictures to that dash, have skins/themes. Let me pick colors, styles, move stuff around, or hide stuff I don't care about.

4. Ipod jacks are nice, but how about an Ipod dock? I dock my ipod and I it's connected to the car stereo. I can easily listen to my music and charge my ipod, all without shuffling wires.

how about a smart computer that will turn a turn signal on once the wheel starts to turn for the idiot who is too lazy to reach in the back seat to turn it on

:blink::huh:
