As you go about the affair of living, you put your life safe and luxurious with all the available resources .Now days we all are entrenched with computers and almost all depended on them. Devices with intelligence rule the world. Imbibing intelligence to these devices is through a system called “EMBEDDED SYSTEM”.
Its applications provide marvelous opportunitiesfor ingenious use of computer technology. Almost all every system introduced into the market is an example of Embedded System. An embedded device finds applications in all segments of industrial and commercial marketplace. Home appliances, mobile phones, Personal Digital Assistants (PDA), cars, tiny microchips and avionics are all using embedded technology. The current topic “Automation of car” that we are going to present is one of the fine examples of Embedded System.
Is autonomous car a myth or reality?
There are many paradigm shifts taking place due to information explosion and the concept of autonomous vehicle is one shift. The car, which is embedded, can simulate the human driver completely and direct the vehicle on the road. Autonomous vehicle has been the dream of scientists for long. Now their dream has come true as with drastic changes in technical brilliance and developments in different fields with EMBEDDED SYSTEM as pioneer.
The fine art of automation:
Just imagine. We load the code of our destination in the dashboard computer and turn the car on, while we remain seated carefree on the rear seats. Then its all the job of the ‘unknown’ to drive it on the roads, bridges, thought the bazaars, past the crossings to the destination, without getting challenged even once for traffic rule violations. A fully computerized car capable of doing almost every thing a car lover would want to. Seems like fantasy but a day is not far when almost all automobiles will interact with computer on dashboards. From ordering pizza to booking tickets at the nearest theater, things would be as easy as giving orders to your servant. As a matter of fact, vehicles all over the world are now fitted with intelligent devices that make the vehicles to respond to various factors –be it climate control, sudden accelerations or braking or even self-repair of modules. There are trends where the finger print technologies are also have been introduced which gives the following reliabilities You could one day be able to enter and start your car with the touch of a finger. And that same touch, with your fingerprint acting as a key, would trigger a check of the mirrors, steering wheel, radio and temperature to ensure that they're the way you like them. The convenience of fingerprint recognition technology comes with heightened tems-Krishna murthy
