When we hear GPS, we know that Global Positioning System is being discussed. This technology has brought car manufactures to a whole new level of engineering. Many new cars now have On-Star, which is cool. However, now we have the technology for cars to drive and park themselves. Let’s look into what GH technology has to offer.
Cars have come a log way in safety. Seatbelts, added crush zones, air bags, high strength steel, boron steel, and now GH technology. What is GH…..well, GH stands for grass hopper. That’s right; Volvo is studying grass hopers to take safety to the next level. Here is the theory behind this. If you were to walk to a crop filled with grass hoppers, you would notice that they are jumping and hopping everywhere. However, someone noticed that they never collide with each other. They want to take that technology and apply it to cars.
Sound crazy? Well, it does to me, but I have learned never say never. If, you would have told someone about the technology today’s vehicles have, 20 years ago, they may have thought you were crazy. Or here is one that gets me. When I was a kid, I would have never thought someone could take a bottle of water and sell it for the same price or more than other drinks. I would have thought they were crazy. However, you know how that story ends.
Here is a YouTube video about it.
Let me know what you think.
