Bentley Motors Limited is a British manufacturer and marketer of luxury cars and SUVs. It is a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group since 1998. It was founded by W.O. Bentley in 1919 in Cricklewood, North England. The company, Bentley Motors is located in Crewe, England.
Bentley Motors will be manufacturing the all-new 2022 Bentley Bentayga S which will be a combined version of Bentley Bentayga V8, and Bentley Bentayga Speed (W12).
It comes with a 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine which provides a horsepower of 542 and a torque of 568 lb-ft getting to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Bentley Bentayga S comes with Adaptive Cruise Control which helps to slow down while there is traffic to maintain a safe distance. In congested traffic, it will stop or move forward automatically according to the pace and motion of the vehicle.
It also comes with the Lane Detection System, which warns when to drift out of the lane without indication and can correct the course. It also provides haptic feedback through the steering wheel.
The Blind Spot Monitoring enables to overtake blindly and the Traffic Sign Recognition alerts to change the speed limit of the vehicle at any course of time.
Equipped with Bentley Dynamic Ride, a groundbreaking active anti-roll system that uses a 48-volt electric motor to minimize the body roll when the car is cornering to get in complete control. It has an All-Terrain Specification that provides 4 driving modes and is also called the responsive off-road settings.
It includes robust underfoot protection, luggage management system to ensure that the items in the boot are safely secured along with a specific window on the infotainment system that displays useful information.
The vehicle consists of a 10.9-inch infotainment screen. An entertainment system consists of two 10.2-inch displays mounted to the front seat headrests. A 12-speaker stereo is also provided.
It consists of a black body accent, dark tint lights, the restrictive exhaust system that improves the sound of the Bentley. There are multiple color accents on the instrument panel, center console, door linings, steering wheel, and gear level. Like the other Bentleys, the vehicle can be selected from four, five, or seven seats.
Self-driven cars would be hijacking over the manual ones in not so distant future. But the question is these automated cars good enough to sit back without being stressed about safety?
Let’s check out on that…A self-driving vehicle can sense its surroundings and control its movements without human intervention. The SAE has come up with six levels of self-driving vehicles. Level 5 being the highest level.
Many companies are trying to be the first ones to develop an autonomous car that can drive under all driving conditions. Major automobile manufactures and tech giants are looking for ways to get to the front of the race. They are performing a bunch of road tests with their self-driving cars and are collecting data from these tests which will help cars navigate the modern world where unpredictable things happen all the time. In order to manage situations like this, we might also need to set up designated lanes for self-driving cars during the transition period where both traditional cars and self-driving cars would be on the roads. We also need regulatory changes on the insurance policies so that the insurance companies can cover different types of vehicles. So, self-driving cars can be a huge test for not only automobile manufacturers but also for regulators. After all, the manufactures and regulators need to come together and update the laws that have been in place for decades to reflect the changes associated with self-driving cars. But to make it happen would require time and a lot of work.
There is no doubt that self-driving cars present many technological promises to our lives. But in order for us to truly take advantage and prepare for a future, we need everyone to step up and put their heads together towards a solution. However, until fully autonomous cars are on the road, people still need to be fully responsible while driving their vehicles and understand the limits of the technology in their vehicles.
It will take few more years for researchers to optimize autonomous driving. Those improvements can’t be rushed. So strap in and relax. You’ll be still holding that steering wheel for a while.
1986, the year when Ernst Dickmanns changed the whole automobile industry by unleashing a driverless Mercedes onto the roads of Europe and since then this technology hasn’t stopped and has been used by almost every car manufacturer in the world.
But how safe this technology is and will be in the coming years?
Consider the above scenario, you’re riding in your shiny new self-driving car and suddenly a group of people spills into the road and at this point the car has to make a decision, either swerve into the wall killing you or plow through the crowd saving your life but taking several others. While surveys show that most people would choose to sacrifice themselves for the crowd. Of course, this scenario would be exceedingly rare.
Computerizing our cars and adding modern technologies every launch will put lives in danger and automation will not end all car accidents. If for some reason system malfunctions or experience some unexpected glitch that causes the machine to act unpredictably or stop altogether. It can be dangerous when a self-driving car malfunction while traveling at high speed on a road.
According to two independent polls conducted in January and in late March/early April, the percentage of Americans thinking that autonomous cars are less safe than vehicles driven by humans increased from 36 percent to 50 percent.
According to my analysis it will be crucial for designers to prioritize safety over rider preferences if autonomous vehicles are to live up to their promise to be safer than human drivers before these autonomous vehicles gain widespread adoption. For the future of self-driving cars, there is a lot to think about. Laws, regulations, and development vary greatly, between states and countries. So, discussion between experts, law makers and countries will need to be had if we want to really make autonomous vehicles a reality and despite all the hype, self-driving cars will not be safer because robots are better drivers than our (computer-enhanced) selves, but I’ll leave you to decide if that’s a good thing or not.
