Would I benefit from Automatic Tire Chains?

The Driver is in Control

We live in the era of automation. Have you ever thought of all the things that used to need a lot of human involvement, but today are seemingly automatic? Buying things for example. We have access to a global supply of products and services that are just a few clicks away, and we get our deliveries with very little human involvement. It’s different systems that communicate and automate that provide this convenience.

Today’s vehicles are also loaded with systems to make their use safer and more convenient such as blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure. Automation technology is developing at such a fast pace that self-driving vehicles are no longer a futuristic dream. There are, however, things that cannot be controlled by automated systems. The weather for example. When roads are icy and covered with snow it’s obvious that we rule under the basic physical laws of friction, traction and energy of motion. No system will ever override these fundamentals.

Overriding Murphy’s law

In situations where we are faced with poor driving conditions we must focus all our attention on driving safely. Additionally, times like these may also call for us to exert some physical effort as well mainly mounting tire chains. Thus, driving in adverse conditions become mentally and physically taxing and according to Murphy’s law we will now lose valuable time, be cold, tired, and dirty.

An automatic tire chain system is a good solution to this problem. Just imagine flipping a switch and you get the traction of tire chains automatically. Another flip, and the system disengages, returning to its resting position – all this while driving. No wasted time, no physical mounting of chains, and no getting cold and dirty.

Would I benefit from Automatic Tire Chains?
