Engineers in California claim they have developed a program for vehicles that would reduce auto accidents by as much as 80 percent. Even if the new technology gets installed on vehicles, it is always necessary to have a protective Wisconsin auto insurance policy.
The new technology uses short-range radio waves, which cars use to anonymously transmit their GPS location to each other. Cars are visible to each other within a few hundred yards and onboard computers analyze when your car might be on a collision course with another car.
Should your car happen to be on a collision course with another car, the onboard computer system alerts you with flashing LED lights, which are installed on the mirrors and windshield. The seats also vibrate, ensuring the driver is properly alerted of the approaching threat.
Developers still need to test the technology with ordinary drivers to see how they respond to it, claiming that everyone who has tried it so far is very enthusiastic after testing it.
Even if this technology makes its way to your car, you should still properly insure your vehicle. Although there may be fewer accidents on the road, there’s always a chance for collisions. Contact us today to go over options for your Wisconsin auto insurance policy!
