“Your attention please. This car is backing up.” In the late eighties and nineties, that was pretty much all the assistance a driver ­received during his rever­sing manoeuvre, more like having a talking horn in the rear. The message was meant to alert people outside. ­Today, automobile gadgets interact with the driver in more ways than one.

Sometimes it’s a blip from the window, a thrum on the steering, or the feeling of the pedal being snatched from under your foot…It’s a whole new generation of driver-assist features at work for you. They alert the driver through sound, visual or sometimes even physical mediums, when they sense a potentially dangerous situation. Some just warn you, some support your action and some act on your behalf. Most driver assistance features are there primarily to enhance safety while a whole bunch of them are designed to make life easier and the drive more efficient and enjoyable.
