Engineering companies are constantly improving transport, but sometimes it gets a functionality that not only do not benefit but may cause harm.
The day before experts have been announced the most useless features of modern cars, and began with Start/Stop. It is advertised as a solution for reducing the fuel consumption in the city due to the engine stall at traffic lights and in traffic jams. However, experts note that such a function contributes to environmental pollution and shrinking resources of the motor.
Experts questioned the usefulness of the automated seat belts. According to experts, such long straps perform their function, but because the driver or passengers easier and faster to buckle up independently.
Locking safety belts, the experts do not approve of. Her work is annoying to many and, as a result, the belts are left behind or used “plug” that is inserted into the lock for the belt. That is, the meaning of the lock is reduced to nothing. Voice control functionality of the car is also often useless. Not always user commands correctly “understood” by the machine, and therefore, to switch to manual control.
By the way, recently the Russians had a chance to take part in the survey, which allowed us to understand the functional drivers of the country find most useful in transport. It turned out, most of all they approve of heated windshield, auto-start engine and heated seats.
