"Just a few years ago, when we talked with the members of the Lithuanian State Commission for Cars, we talked about whether we are approaching the day when common features such as stability, road behavior, steering sensitivity, etc. can be connected to the phone or they can use it on the Internet, which can use the touch screen in the middle and can stop playing alone. And that actually grows every year, perhaps this year the commission was so satisfied with the tests after it became very simple, but fun for driving Suzuki models, "said Dina Sergijenko, a member of the electoral commission.
He notes that nobody poses such a question about the availability of a Bluetooth headset in the car because it can be found without exception in all cars. The number of switches in the cabinets is reduced, touch screen changes are changing because it is much easier to control the management of all systems. In modern machines there are so many features that simply do not have enough space for the buttons.

All 33 cars in the competition had a touch screen, increased and multiplied – here's the Volkswagen Touareg even 15-inch screen. Audios have fewer monitors, but there are three. Also, Jaguar I-Pace.
Journalists who missed a weekly "litavano-year" vehicle testing camp at Druskininkai had to not only try, but also approach and find out the shades of each candidate in the title. Information and safety systems in some cars require so much attention that there is no time to drive.
Experts have reviewed automotive technology: Autoplius Portal Communication Manager Matt Buzel sought innovation in new cars, Telijin team of experts checked car connection, and Arūnas Kiaušas, Sales and Marketing Manager at the Continental Export Office in Poland, told about future trends.
Manufacturers come up with something new – it's hard
Matas Buzel appreciated the level of ergonomics for Audi. Though intelligent displays draw the driver off the road, the Germans have created a very simple operating system, and the displays have feedback. Audius Stasiulaitis, Public Relations Manager, Internet Affairs and Communication Technologies Specialists Giedrius Markūnas and Julius Ūža received top marks for a German car. They welcomed all Volkswagen cars, highlighted their connectivity and ease of use.

"Cars are developing extremely quickly, driving better, quality increases, screens increase, but innovations that we would not see are not so much. For example, one of the most prominent BMWs, the most expensive X5 racing car, has nothing particularly innovative in the interior. The Germans did it only better than before, "said Matas Buzel.
However, he has found a number of innovations: here, Hyundai Santa Fe has a system that will inform the driver about the person or the animal who has remained in the car so that the parents do not leave it alone.
The British electric car Jaguar I-Pace is one of the first in the market that offers an electrochemical roof window that changes the transparency, depending on the amount of light. Class Mercedes-Benz was surprised by the navigation system used by the front camera to display the actual road display instructions. The Nissan LEAF has introduced the E-pedal, which allows you to ride a single-pedal car. The Peugeot 508 is still relatively new and has been translated into the middle class with the easiest night vision system. Here is the ability of Volkswagen Touarega to dive with a trailer.
A.Stasiulaitis praised for all connectivity cars, almost all information systems were clear, understandable and comfortable to use but also found anegdotal situations. There Honda experts discovered an unmistakable HDMI port and a non-new user interface. The Nissan Leaf system also did not bother with technology experts, and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro with a 6.39 inch screen did not fit into the BMW X2 charging area.
Automotive technology goes a long way: As in phones, drivers can fold menu items as needed, cars are welcome by the name when opening the door, and in most models of premium models you can talk and ask for a voice to call someone, find the address.
"For all this, the problem is that there are so many cars today that we have nothing to do with driving. Imagine: if the system is included in the travel bar, the adjustable cruise control system and the travel function, the car has emergency braking, warning on dangers and other things to do when driving in a congestion? Take the smart phone out right and browse fiesbuke or read news pages. It is a pleasure to see that, in the light of this trend, car makers not only produce toys but also provide car sound systems, internet, gadgets, and more, but also installs pedestrians, bikers, animals, stops, tracking driver fatigue, and so on.I am glad that manufacturers have become aware of the terrible and unpleasant sound signals that drivers are constantly wanting to shut down and alert you to the danger entirely: leaving the steering vibration, seat, even gas reminder "- another p anel intelligent technology was reviewed by Commissioner D. Sergijenko.
Experts notice that there will be more screens in the future, fewer buttons. Sometimes the steering wheel will disappear, but you still have to wait.
