With the advancement of technology and artificial intelligence, cars are certainly not left out. Matter of fact cars are the focal point of some really cool automotive innovations and you will likely start to see them anytime from now. We will look at some important ones.
Bosch Virtual Visor
Automotive supplier Bosch has developed what they call Bosch’s Virtual Visor which uses a transparent LCD screen and an in-car RGB camera which can track the sun shining on the driver’s face.

The seat’s super safe, too. There’s a cocoon-style airbag that deploys in the event of a crash. When the seat is reclined, a screen drops down from the headliner and can show directional information, which combined with the position of the seat, can prevent motion sickness.
