You might want to visit the 2014 Chicago Auto Show this week to find out how to improve your cars IQ. The word here is that cars are getting “smarter.” You’ll see Infiniti’s “steer-by-wire” system that uses only electronics to steer your car, no mechanical hydraulic linkage anymore. At the Ford display you can view Ford’s C-MAX Solar Engergy concept where a hybrid car can be recharged using solar panels. Now cars can park themselves, steer around obstacles and keep you in the correct lane all by themselves. General Motors’ hands-free integration with Apple Siri personal assistant is on dislay. By 2015 GM says they will offer a rolling 4G LTE hot spot to keep you connected to the internet. Technology continues to change or lives, and new automotive technologies are leading the way.
