One of the best parts of an old year ending, is looking forward to all of the exciting new things that might come in the next one. Especially when it comes to dreaming up what sort of new technology we might have access to by the time next December comes around. Here is a look at some of the more exciting car tech prospects for 2015.

safety features

While these might not be the most exciting items on this list, more advanced safety features mean a safer road for everyone. And they also make your driving experience more convenient. Among the new features we can expect in 2015 are sensors and cameras on more cars, that help with reversing, forward collision mitigation, as well as LED headlights that should help for clearer vision in the dark and preventing other drivers from getting blinded.

self-driving tech

There are still a few kinks to work out, so we will probably have to wait a few years before we get fully-functional self-driving cars. However, in 2015 there is a good chance that we will see a significant increase in the prevalence of this kind of technology, specifically when it comes to parking. There are already a number of cars with parking assist, but this upcoming year expect to see many more cars equipped with the technology to park themselves.

in-car wi-fi

Many car models are experimenting with different ways to allow you to use touchscreen technology in your car, and many also connect to the internet or at the very least GPS. The natural step forward is that now we will start to see cars installed with wi-fi hotspots, which would also allow you and your passengers to connect their devices to the internet. Hopefully we won’t see drivers browsing on their phones while driving though!

lane change assist

Most accidents happen when one or more cars are changing lanes, so you can imagine the benefit of cars that can assist you with doing this safely. When driving at freeway speeds it can be difficult to judge the speeds of other lanes and decide when there is a safe gap to move into. Lane change assist will help with this and warn you when there is not sufficient space.

find a space or your car

Not only will there be self-parking vehicles, but the help with parking does not end here. A few car manufacturers are testing out technologies that will help you to find a parking space in any given city and, perhaps even more useful, help you to find where you parked your car when you come back to it. No more walking around for hours, trying to remember what level you parked on!
