7 technologies of the present, which will change cars beyond recognition in the future
According to experts, by 2030 electric cars will flood the expensive all more or less large cities of Europe and America. By 2040, leading automakers can completely abandon the production and support of cars on internal combustion engines. Right now, before our very eyes, the very future is coming, and therefore it will be a question of technologies that will change the automotive industry and transportation forever.
1. Electric motors
Creating an electric motor with high performance is not such a great achievement. More importantly, in recent years, scientists have made a great contribution to the development of batteries and continue to work in this area. Who, 10 years ago, could have believed that in 2017 all leading automakers would start producing their own electric cars? However, now it's all a reality.
2. Hybrid engines
Designers have been interested in hybrid engines for a long time.The first Lohner-Porsche hybrid car would have been created in 1901, but serious developments in this field began to be carried out only in the middle of the 20th century. Cars that use two engines, one of which is an electric motor, actively began to appear only in the last two decades. It was these developments that helped prove that electric consumer vehicles are a reality.
3. Hydrogen fuel cells
Cars that feed on hydrogen fuel cells, cause no less interest of designers than electric cars. Such machines today are really made. Toyota, Honda and Hyundai have achieved the greatest success in the region. By the way, Toyota has created even the first cargo truck on hydrogen. On the first full flight, the car will be released in October 2017.
4. "Unmanned" cars
Popularization of cars that will not need drivers, mainly engaged in the Tesla team. However, in recent years, more and more manufacturers are showing interest in "smart" technologies for machines. There is some success. Designers have already managed to create assistant systems capable of assessing the situation on the roadway, making decisions and driving a car. However, a full-fledged replacement of a human driver is not being discussed. Until.
5. Flying taxis
The man rushed into the sky from the very dawn of his story. What can be surprising is that the entire history of the auto industry was trying to create a flying car? The most significant attempts in this area were undertaken in the second half of the 20th century. Today, interest in flying individual vehicles is back. Modern technologies, for the first time in a long time, allow engineers to create really working and quite effective prototypes.
6. Concept transport
In the last decade, the most "radical" attempts are made to rethink the design and construction of cars. Many interesting concepts appear, for example, modular cars, the body of which a motorist can rearrange, thereby changing the class of his car. Of course, most concepts will remain on paper, but some interesting ideas still flow to the consumer market.
7. Interactive roads
Changing not only the vision of the car of the future, but also the roads on which he drives. Improving pavement is only a surface miser.
