Automobile technology has come a long way since Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot manufactured the first steam-powered car in 1769.
Along with increased horse-power, we also need some tools to help us along on our journeys for comfort and safety. Fortunately, technology never stops developing, and techies find new and innovative ways to do that.
Fitting your car with the latest gadgets is about more than just showing off. It makes your journey more comfortable, faster, and safer.
Let’s take a look at what technology has to offer for a safer and more comfortable ride in 2020.
Bluetooth Key Tracker
You’re not going anywhere if you keep on misplacing your keys. How much money have you had to spend over the years in replacing lost keys? Fortunately, with the new “Tile Pro,” it can become something of the past.
The 2020 updated version of the Tile Pro remains the leader in the pack for finding easy-to-lose items. The manufacturer now also applied the technology to laptops and headphones.
It’s a mobile app that tracks the whereabouts of the slim ‘tile’ that you either hook onto your car keys, slip into your wallet, or stick to your laptop. With its small design, you can use it for just about anything you can think of that can be misplaced.
The creators of Tile Pro have announced a partnership with Intel that’ll fit all new laptops with the smart tracking device. Bad news for laptop thieves, welcome news for users.
Night Vision for Improved Visibility
Most of us have some degree of difficulty when driving at night, whether it’s the glaring headlights from oncoming traffic or our poor eyesight.
Having a clear image of the road ahead is vital for safe night-time driving. Whether you’re driving a few blocks around town or heading on a long-haul journey, visibility is a crucial safety feature.
The latest Lanmodo Night Vision gadget will give you a clear, full-color picture of what’s ahead for up to 984 feet. It’ll also help you see what’s in front of or around you when parking in unfamiliar streets. The benefits are endless. The 22.5 x 8.5cm screen fits securely to your dashboard and is easy to install.
Bluetooth Gauges for Tire Pressure Updates
Gone are the days when you had to stop in every town to ensure all your tires have the same air pressure. Properly inflated tires prolong life as it allows for even wear and tears. Uneven pressure is a primary safety measure as it can influence the car’s grip on the road surface. Uneven tire-pressure also causes instability when you need to brake suddenly.

It won’t switch off when your car does and will keep on giving you updates should any irregularities occur while your vehicle is stationary.
The Fobo Tire gauge can take readings of up to 350 kph and is suitable for all cars, SUVs, and trucks.
The Wristband That Gives You a Wake-up Call
Fatigue is the most under-reported cause of road accidents. Fortunately, technology has once again provided a means to assist you. A wristband that detects various motions and that’ll start vibrating to alert you is the best accessory right now.
The Alert Driver wristband is a comfortable smart-watch made from rubber. It communicates with an RFID tag that’s inside your car. As soon as you start showing signs of fatigue through slower reactions, it’ll begin vibrating, warning you to take a break from the wheel.
