TORONTO, Ont. (February 14, 2016) — Technology is transforming the way that we drive, and it won’t be long before it takes the wheel completely.
Research and development into the autonomous car is progressing rapidly, and many elements of that work are creeping into the features that you will find in today’s showrooms, like crash avoidance and parallel park assist. At the 2016 Canadian International AutoShow’s Connected Car exhibit, the future of driving is on full display.
“Driverless car innovation will have a significant impact on the domestic auto industry, affecting everything from the manufacturers, the dealers, insurance companies and consumers,” says Jason Campbell, General Manager of the AutoShow. “It is important that we try to gain a better understanding of the autonomous car and how the technology will work.”
The Ontario government and the Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association opened the AutoShow on Friday with a showcase of some of the leading organizations that are supplying products and technology to the Connected and Autonomous vehicle industry.
Included in the display are several autonomous cars, including:
- Linamar Lincoln MKZ
- Chevrolet Volt
- Ford C-Max Energi
- The Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association Lexus RX350
- Audi RS7 Performance Piloted Driving
