If you keep up with the auto industry, you’ve probably heard or read about self-driving technology in cars. Sometimes, this information can seem unbelievable, like something out of a sci-fi movie, but self-driving tech is a bit less far-fetched than you may originally have thought. Usually, self-driving technology refers to features in a vehicle that are partially or fully autonomous.

Our expert staff at Flanagan Motors Mazda can help explain what exactly self-driving tech in cars looks like. In fact, self-driving tech is a lot more common than you may think. For example, rearview cameras that help guide drivers when backing out of spaces are a form of self-driving technology in cars. In addition to parking assistance, lane assistance is a feature that helps drivers stay in their lane when driving. These features might be simple but they make the overall driving experience way safer!

Of course, there are more technologically advanced features available in vehicles. For example, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 features the incredible, all-new i-ACTIVSENSE® system. This system is designed to make drivers more confident behind the wheel of a Mazda, by utilizing technology that helps alert drivers to any potential hazards. Its goal is to avoid collisions altogether or to mitigate the effects of one if it does occur. In a sense, this system stays active and vigilant while you drive, so you can take it easy behind the wheel.
