23: Digital Sixth Sense
As with the rest of the new automotive technology, these cars can also sense driver issues. A modern car can tell if the driver is asleep and control the vehicle accordingly. This has happened so much that Tesla had to issue an upgrade for their vehicle’s firmware. Falling asleep at the wheel is all too common (via Forbes).
Tesla is just one of the automakers that have tried to change this awful problem. These sixth sense systems are put in place to ensure the car stays on course. Sure, there are times when the system will malfunction, but even with human error, these systems have saved lives.
