TECHNOLOGY AND THE AUTOMOBILE A research report by Rhodes Kevin Courtois
Background image of page 2
   INTRODUCTION This research report focuses on new trends in automotive technology and explores how this technology prevents automobile collisions. I am interested in this topic because cars are my passion, a love instilled in me by my father who is an auto mechanic in Haiti. As a young boy I used to help him in his shop; I watched him diagnose car problems and correct them so that his customers could be safe behind the wheel. I learned that the quality of construction and design can save lives. I am also interested in this topic because recently, a friend of mine had a car accident that almost cost him his life. It is possible that the use of technology, namely a GPS system, distracted him prior to the collision. If so, I am unsettled by the fact that the “digital revolution” can play both negative and positive role in automobile safety. To better understand this contradiction, my project seeks to answer this question: What roles does technology play in the prevention of road collisions? AUDIENCE PRIMARY The primary audience of my research report is the people interested in making automobile safers: the car engineers and the car manufacturers. SECONDARY The secondary audience is the teenage drivers and their parents. Teenage drivers because they make up 30% of accidents and the parents because they are concerned about their kids. OVERVIEW
