Thanks to various comfort modules, driving a passenger car is a breeze!

Who of us could have thought 30 years ago that passenger cars would move on the roads by themselves, practically without the need for any intervention on the part of the driver?

The fact is a fact and we have been able to hear in various media for some time that such a function is offered by, for example, genius cars from the USA, i.e. Tesla cars. They were the first on a large scale to revolutionize the so-called “autopilot” in cars. The lane keeping system has been known for a long time, but this one, most often only informed the driver that he was changing lanes. On the other hand, the innovation in Tesla’s electric cars allows the car to move virtually autonomously without having to involve the driver too much in the process.

All this thanks to the comfort modules and highly developed electronics, which, acquiring a lot of data in real time, is able to drive the vehicle itself.

But let’s move on to slightly simpler comfort modules. Have any of you wondered, for example, how does the automatic wiper work in our cars during rain? Why is the wiper able to turn itself on and adjust the speed of the wiper arms? This is all thanks to a special sensor located inside the car’s cabin, right next to the edge of the upper windscreen. It is this sensor that can read information about the intensity of rainfall and the occurrence of rainfall in general. Then, it transmits such information to the comfort module, which in turn activates the arms of the front wiper blades, so that, based on the data, they eliminate the negative effects of weather conditions. All this without any driver intervention. It is also worth mentioning that if the manufacturer has provided for such a possibility of a comfort module, and our poorer version of the car does not have it, we can always buy the necessary elements here . Thanks to this, we will be able to enjoy the comfort module for little money, instead of investing in such an option when buying a car in the showroom.
