Car companies will soon be required to install drunk driving technology

Congress is hoping to mandate car manufacturers to implement drunk and impaired driving prevention technology as part of President Biden’s infrastructure plan.

Every day about 28 people in the U.S. die of drunk driving accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In 2019, a little over 10,000 Americans died from drunk-driving crashes.

The estimated economic cost for alcohol-impaired driving in 2010 was $44 billion.

Congress is trying to change those fatal statistics by imploring car manufacturers along with NHTSA to implement new driver safety standards. The legislation outlines what it would like new technology to look like, including passively monitoring the performance of a driver to identify whether or not they may be impaired. 

It also suggests preventing or limiting cars from operating if an impairment is detected and enabling cars to detect a driver’s blood alcohol concentration.

New technology aims to prevent child hot car deaths

This year, 17 children have died after being left in hot cars.

This year, 17 children have already died after being left in hot cars. Since 1990, more than a thousand children have lost their lives. But a new technology on the market is aiming to prevent these tragedies.

The potentially life-saving innovation is an alarm in the 2022 Genesis GV70 that, according to the manufacturer, sounds as quickly as 10 seconds. Hidden inside the roof above the back seat is a radar that Genesis says can detect a child even if the only movement is a soft breath.

Dr. Emily Thomas, an automotive safety engineer with Consumer Reports, showed ABC News how the child detection system works with her own 4-year-old son, Micah.

Computer And Technology Endorsement

Although OCR strategies have made huge progress within the last many years, they are nonetheless not excellent. As increasingly large portions of texts are scanned it’s inconceivable to control the output by human specialists. Nearly each repository of scanned texts will comprise errors like ‘tbeory’ (for ‘theory’) and ‘tbat’ (for ‘that’) or ‘offical’ (for ‘official’). The primary customers of CAFD had been fixture design engineers, who had used it to generate fixture designs. With the development of knowledge technology, provide chain managers joined as new users of CAFD. They outsource fixtures to distributors , and they want tools corresponding to CAFD to inspect and control fixture designs from vendors.

Which is best computer course?

Whether it’s practical (like washing machines, tumble dryers, refrigerators, cars, flooring materials, windows, or door handles) or for leisure (like televisions, Blu-ray players, games consoles, reclining chairs, or toys), all these things are examples of technology.
