What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Automobile Computer System Failures

Inside a modern automobile, there are several computer systems that run simultaneously. These computers are responsible for a variety of major functions onboard the vehicle. Through computer controls, a driver is offered increased performance abilities in addition to an extra amount of safety. A failure of these systems can prove extremely dangerous, however. Motorists may be severely injured because of a hardware or software failure.

Computerized Systems in Cars

The automobile has become increasingly technologically complex in recent years. Going from a predominantly mechanical vehicle, modern automobiles combine the basic mechanical processes with computer precision and controls. The result is an automobile that is drastically improved by computers and a driver that is practically dependent upon them.

The following systems may have some form of computer control involved in their regular operation:

  • The engine
  • The transmission
  • Brakes
  • Steering
  • Warning systems
  • The accelerator

These complex computer systems may range from traction improvements to more complex additions such as drowsiness alarms for tired drivers. In any case, a computer malfunction can leave a driver without the full use of their vehicle’s safety features. This can lead to a serious injury as a result.
