Autonomous driving

One of the most disruptive technologies the global auto industry is witnessing in the last few years is self-driving technology. While various automakers are using a host of driver assisting semi-autonomous technology on their cars, several car brands are working on fully autonomous driving technology that would make drivers’ jobs obsolete. But, do you really need that? A car is meant for driving and the benefits the OEMs mention about self-driving vehicles are not really essential at all.


Heads-up display

Many modern cars come with a feature called heads-up display. This feature put an augmented reality-based display on the windshield. The feature certainly looks cool, but you can easily drive your car without using it. It can also act as a distraction. Adding a heads-up display also adds to the cost of the vehicle.


In-infotainment purchase

Cars are becoming more than just a medium of commuting. Modern cars are often touted as a service provider. The cars with infotainment systems offering purchase capability to the owners are something that enhances this idea. However, this feature is not an essential one.


Biometric features

A biometric data enabled door lock seems a very cool feature for a car. But, this means unnecessarily making the car system more complex. Also, this increases the risk of data theft as well.
