Rolls Royce Wraith Shifts Gears via GPS

The Rolls Royce Wraith, set for a release later this year, features environmental sensors that use global positioning technology to determine which gears are to be used on a particular stretch of road. This feature is so advanced that it can calculate which gear of the 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox is to be used even at a particular corner. Other features of the car include a full infotainment system, heads-up display and voice-command support. Technology for cars seems to be steering drivers of the future into more responsible decisions, yet in some cases may intrude on the driver’s actual sense of discretion.
