The 2023 Chevy Colorado truck has everyone awe-struck with its outstanding features, affordable prices, and fresh new interiors. The highlight of the automobile is its virtual button for the light switch, shown on the infotainment screen. As the headlight switch has gone automatic now, you don’t have to switch it on and off repeatedly, except in the windy seasons. Simply open the menu on the 11.3 inches touchscreen display, and switch it on and off manually rather than flipping on a physical button.
What Happens if the System Fails?
Nick Katcherian, chief engineer of the new Colorado vehicle, in an interview with Road & Track, expressed how many drivers might be skeptical about the infotainment system failures or bugs. If such a scenario happens, they will lose the ability to control the light switch. However, Katcherian has convinced the audience that their team has already encountered all the possible bugs in the system. The legal necessity to make the light switch always functional means the light control module loads on top of the remnant of the infotainment system. Soon, these software-based light switches can help add more significance to automobiles while selling them or work as optional add-ons.
No Light Switch Means More Space
Katcherian discovered when you switch on your wipers in the rain, the light comes on too, and that’s where the idea to save space by removing the light switch was generated. With the virtual headlight switch trend catching on, the engineer says they see an opportunity to virtualize many more buttons in the future.If you think about it, this digital light switch offers more flexibility regarding what and how much one can update by deeply diving into this technological arena. And now, all you need to do is wait and see how much this virtual light switch feature turns out on the road.
