What Does The Future Look Like For Orange Auto Sales?

There is a notion that self-driving cars are the way of the future, and there are plenty of Orange County residents who are eagerly anticipating their eventual rollout. But auto sales are still going on while people wait, and presumably, we are still some years away from this monumental innovation. In the meantime, it is the internet of things, or IoT, that is paving the way for the future. But what exactly is IoT, and what does it have to do with driving?


IoT and the Automotive Industry

IoT generally refers to a system that modern computerized devices have of communicating with each other. This is enabled in the physical world through networks of sensors that can be set up, usually in urban areas. But what does this have to do with driving?

Your Car as a Smart Device

One thing that it means is that in the not-too-distant future, the line between your phone and your car will blur. That means that voice devices like Alexa and Siri can communicate with you in real time as you drive, Orange County residents, and they can tell you things that you’ll want to know.

For instance, voice assist can identify when you’ve been driving for several hours at night, and it can locate hotels nearby and check for room availability. It will then ask you if you want to book a room and guide you there. It will might also tell you, based on where your friends’ cars are on the road, that some acquaintances of yours are nearby. It can suggest that you meet with them at a nearby restaurant, and it can book you a reservation.

Voice assist in your car can even detect if there is something wrong, like your brakes needing servicing. It can warn you about the problem and find an auto body shop for you to visit on the spot. It’s going to be as though your cell phone has wheels.

The most significant difference this is going to make in Orange auto sales is that there will be the newer generations of cars with all of these advanced capabilities, and then there will be older models that aren’t able of doing any of these things. It’s possible that some older cars can be retrofitted with some of this technology, but it’s going to be costly.

Ultimately, those who are willing to drop tens of thousands of dollars for this new tech will be the first ones to enjoy it. It will only be in the distant future that every car on the road will have these abilities, and when that day arrives, driving will be almost unrecognizable compared to what the experience is like today.
