You wake up to an alarm on your phone. Check the weather, social media and email before you even emerge from the bedroom. Technology is around us all the time. It’s hard to fathom, however, that there are other technologies influencing our lives right now. Explore the everyday tech that you may not even know is there. The world runs on a tight schedule with these technologies in place.
Pull up to a stop light at a busy intersection, and you’re meeting one of the most innovative systems around. Depending on the time of day, the system adjusts for either slow or busy traffic patterns. The green light might be longer during rush hour, for instance. In the wee hours of the morning, however, the system might work on light stimulation from car headlights. The light will activate for cars approaching the intersection instead of making you wait on a red in which no cars are passing by.
When you think of the realities involved with a simple gassing up of your car, it’s amazing how technology has made the process safer than ever before. There are components that tell the gas nozzle when it’s safe to activate the fuel flow. It automatically shuts off when the tank is full.
There’s even tech involved at the station’s car wash. Enter the tunnel, and the machine carefully supports and pulls the vehicle through the suds. As long as there’s adequate car wash maintenance, this tech serves each car equally.
A technology that used to be only known by Internet insiders was cookies. As you arrive at any website, cookies monitor your every move.

As advancements continue in almost every tech industry, you’ll see even more components influencing your world. Accept their convenience and enjoy the results. Technology will make life more comfortable than ever before.
