Smart Panel Technology in Automotives
Smart Technology will help law enforcement agency to nab any culprit who wish to run away from them, Police personnel use many equipment’s efficiently to trace out the suspect on the move. Similarly, A Smart Technology that will revolutionize to nab the suspect who has dented your car, Sounds Interesting isn’t it? A German auto parts major Hella KGaA Hueck & Co is in the process of developing smart body panels which monitors and traces out the damage done to your car.
Nowadays, it’s very stressful to drive in city traffic due to the ever increase in vehicular population tremendously, pushing the need for infrastructural up-gradation that is not catching up fast. In a day to day typical traffic it’s hard to change the lanes and someway the car behind you bumps onto your car, you may not be in a situation to catch the suspect but, it is eventually to protect your car from getting dented from others, this can be in a choked traffic or parking space of a public place, the solution for the problem is found through smart panels integrated into the body of a car.
The smart panels being developed by Hella are touted to be a foiled type and pressure sensitive sheet consisting electronic sensors. When these smart panels are integrated into the body of a car it detects any dents to your car that can be self driven dent or some other person dented your car, by using special algorithm to trace.
Some may argue the need for such technology as they can see how the car has been dented? But this smart panel technology is connected to an onboard video camera and a GPS enabled system to record and trace the suspect in the moment of hit and run situations. This provides a vital evidence of a video footage to the law enforcement agencies to nab the suspect.
Many German Luxury brands are considering incorporating Smart Panel Technology in their product lineup and if it’s successful, it can be popularized amongst other car manufacturers to consider it as a part of safety aspect but, as per the Hella reports such technology cannot be available until next 3 years i.e. 2018, since it is still in development stage and need to be tested deliberately on how the system responds in a real time situations.
Smart Panel Technology still have some questions unanswered, Will this system continuously run when the car is turned off? How will it be powered? Will it automatically generate information to the law enforcement agencies and the insurance companies? Will this technology be incorporated in rental vehicles to monitor the condition of their vehicles on the road?
My stake on the above questions is clear that benefits of Smart Panels would outweigh the risk factors and drawbacks associated with it. What would be your stake then?
