Technology now a days has gotten more and more advanced. We need to be careful how we use them. They can be dangerous for issues like cyber bullying and in-car uses. When driving in a car you should avert your full or at least most attention to the road and driving safely because of you don't you could cause harm to not only to yourself but to others too. If the car is safely parked in a parking lot or in another area then in-car technology may be permitted. While driving and usage is just too unsafe and could distract you from top prioritys of driving.
I definitely think that new in-car technologies like Apple's CarPlay can pose safety risks because they distract drivers from the road. Unless drivers only use the app while the car is parked, then that type of technology will definitely distract drivers while they are on the road. I think that people need to be careful with these type of technologies.
New technologies, especially touch screens, in cars are a huge safety risk. Unlike the typical analog buttons that we've had in cars for decades, touch screens don't provide the same feedback of a button press, and thus can't be used accurately without taking your eyes off of the road to look at the screen.
Yes, touch screens and media centers pose risks to drivers and can distract them from the road. Any time you have to look away from the road or take your hands off the wheel there is a big risk. Things like that are why televisions have to be in the back of cars.
I believe new in-car technologies (like touch screens and media centers) do pose safety risks because they distract drivers from the road. I think these devices are the same as phones, especially smart phones and we already know its not good to use those while driving. I don't think these media centers should be placed in cars.
Apple's CarPlay: New in-car technologies (like touch screens and media centers) pose safety risks because they distract drivers from the road and make it harder for other drivers to feel safe on the road with them. Too much technology on the road is not a good thing for anyone and should be limited for in home use only.
It comes down to quality design that eliminates distraction rather than adds to it. Touch screens are a distraction when used irresponsibly, which is going to happen, so those systems get my vote for "Yes, more distraction." On the other hand, quality factory system block certain features when the car is in motion. Systems that develop a consistent, familiar experience based on voice or tactile "eyes free" input like Siri and/or knobs/buttons usable by feel will let drivers focus more on the road. They will reduce fumbling with items in the cabin and looking for signage to find their destination when they could keep their eyes on the road. Especially in urban areas where may accidents result during lane changes or disorientation in the midst of fast moving traffic. The car tech can take on the burden of the less urgent aspects of driving, like routing and avoiding congestion, answering calls, and changing music - all by voice. These systems will reduce distraction as drivers become accustomed to these newer technologies , ultimately making the roads safer and more efficient.
One of the main goals of a system like Carplay is to help keep down on distractions. The fact is many people will use their smartphone to do things like get directions and text message. A system like this gives them the option to input commands via voice and receive responses audibly as well. I think it's a much needed improvement to distraction, not an addition.
One of the main goals in this system is to help keep from distracting. Allowing maps to speak directions to you and siri to read your text messages (and better you you read your responses to siri) will keep people from looking down at their phone for these activites, which is happening a ton.
