These days, car manufacturing companies try their best to equip cars with the latest technology so that users can drive in the most convenient and comfortable manner. Due to the introduction of several latest tools, automobile technology has improved a lot in last 10-15 years or so. Now it's easy to see tech cars than before. All the major car manufacturers are trying to produce computer revolutionized cars to get an edge over their rivals. You name any big company and try to look at its success story. If you pay attention, then you will find technology as the biggest reason of its success. Mercedes and Ford are two such companies which have got success due to the inclusion of the latest technology in their cars.

Mercedes Benz has tried to introduce computer modeling in the test solutions of its new CLA for better aerodynamics. Computer modeling is one of the latest techniques which not only save engineers' time, but also their physical efforts. It reduces testing time by a decent margin. The main reason behind the success of ford cars over these years is but stress on technological advancement. Engineers from top colleges spend their days and nights in Ford headquarters and try to analyze MPG of a C-MAX energy so that ford cars can be updated with the latest technology.

In today's time everyone prefers computer revolutionized cars because they make them feel comfortable and save their time. Like Mercedes and ford cars, other companies are also trying their best to introduce the latest technology in their cars. You can now access Wi-Fi in your car, run GPS and install a live TV, is there anything else that you want? Well, you ask, and these world-class companies will offer that service to you. Till the time you have money in your pocket, you don't have to wait for anything.

Research and development department of most of the companies is so attentive that you are offered services before you can even think of them.  There are so many things that you can notice even in an airport taxi. They are equipped with GPS system, so neither driver can run them faster than the pre-decided speed limit nor he can steal it come what may.

One more example of computer revolutionized cars is the driverless car. Can you imagine, scientists are working on a car in which no driver will be required, you just feed the destination you want to go and sit relax. From traffic signals to the shortest route of your destination, everything will be decided by the car itself.  So don't think that it is high time, because that is yet to come. Future will bring many more unexpected and unheard technological advancements in the automobile sector.
