Future smart cars alone will call an ambulance

Intelligent cars
Soon cars will be free to communicate with emergency services in case of accident. They will give information about how serious is the crash and how many victims there are in it, reported BBC.
Such projections were presented at the symposium "The World of the Future", organized by the British Institute of Microelectronics Research.
Delegates at the conference spoke about the changes that may occur in the surrounding of man kind thanks to the massive deployment of tiny sensors and processors.

"The car will likely become most computerized object, which will be in our disposal," said Steve Wainwright, head of the European department of the Freescale Semiconductor.

Nowadays, according to Wainwright average car is 25-30 electronic control devices and expensive models - up to 80. These micro elements are responsible for the work of many in-car systems - stability, distribution of power, safety and more.

As pointed out by the specialist, they increasingly complement driver habits, especially with the development and dissemination of technologies such as radar systems and attack warning.

"The perception that we drive our car better than 10 years ago, is probably due to the fact that we get more help from electronic gadgets in the car itself" Wainwright said at the conference "The World of the Future".

Rapid response

Paul Barney, expert of the company SBD, dealing with automotive market research, agrees that the cars of the future will be able to send data about its location and amount of passengers in order to accelerate the arrival of aid services.
Smart systems will become indispensable when the world starts seriously shifting from gasoline engines to hybrid and electric ones,Barney added.
Only smart sensors are able to accurately determine the distance you can overcome by taking the car, the remaining battery charge, and analyze information for the location of the nearest filling station may increase the demand for such cars, says expert.

Road safety

Steve Wainwright of Freescale Semiconductor believes that the increasing deployment of computers in cars can make driving them more safer and cleaner.

He said in the U.S. has a range of radio frequencies for communications between vehicles but Europe still consider such a possibility.

The opening of such communication channels may give rise to electronic grouping columns, cars moving on a particular route in order to speed up traffic on highways and in cities.
