With the evolution of technology, cars have gone much beyond being just a mode of transportation. Modern cars are fitted with a whole lot of features inspired by innovative technology and new concepts. Here is a list of some modern car technologyand devices, which we all wish to have in our Future Car.

The Wi-Fi hotspot is powered by your vehicle itself so you do not have to worry about the battery status. Up to seven smart devices can be connected and operated together. Goes without saying, remember to concentrate on driving, not on the internet.
Emo vs. Driver Monitor System
This driver monitor system is designed to detect the driver’s emotions from facial expressions and how the car might respond. This monitor system has been developed by Eyeris and operates using several cameras, graphic processing, and deep observation. The passengers are also analyzed and their emotions are detected.
The system detects whether the driver is angry, sad, happy, irritated, in fear or is emotionally blank. Since a majority of car accidents happen as a result of carelessness or anger, the E moveDriver Monitor system detects the driver’s emotions and takes pre-crash actions like initiating the breaks or tightening of the seat belts. Moreover, the driver’s emotions are correlated to locations. If many drivers traveling through a particular location experience some surprise, the transport authority checks for a problem in that location.
