Car safety is a major concern for all car engineers when designing a car irrespective of the brand and segment. Every car buyer first look for the safety features so that they can enjoy a safe drive along with comfort and convenience. With this all car manufacturers keep continue innovating safety technologies and so do Volkswagen.
In the recent years, Volkswagen has introduced many new car safety features in its spectrum of cars. Some of the most high-end technologies innovated by the huge car brand are as follows:
Xenon headlights are a great innovation in car safety features. It is an incredible introduction that has made night driving and driving in poor weather conditions safer than ever before. It resolves the matter of light intensity and other lighting issues that are often experienced with conventional technology of halogen lights. Low energy consumption and high end durability also adds to the advantages of xenon headlights. Then there are cornering lights mated to the bi-xenon headlights that add to the night driving safety as it improves illumination of corners to about 90%.
Front and rear parking sensors are an excellent addition to car safety. It is a sensor that detects any kind of obstacle at the front and gives a warning signal that increases in frequency as the car approaches the obstacle.
Anti lock braking system (ABS) and electronic stability control (ESP) are also important when it comes to car safety. ABS helps to support emergency braking on hilly areas or slippery surfaces and the vehicle can be steered without any kind of difficulty. This feature is of great significance in the car industry as it has actually redefined the safety technologies with its wheel speed sensors that monitor the rotational speed of the wheels.
Rain sensors fitted in the Volkswagen cars help to regulate the intermittent wipe intervals in accordance to the rain intensity. The feature functions automatically with the help of a sensor fitted in the base of the interior mirror. This sensor is made up of various components like infrared light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and a central photodiode. When LED emits light it is reflected onto the photo sensor by the windscreen. This reflection is then transferred to the electronic control unit that eventually adapts the wipe intervals of windscreen.
