Lamborghini Equips New Huracán with Cutting Edge Driving Tech

Lamborghini’s latest tech allows drivers to use the full potential of their cars, while not worrying about fatal accidents

Lamborghini cars are generally known for their powerful engines and sporty looks, than they are for the technology employed in these cars. Nowadays, auto makers make use of a lot of hi tech wizardry, to stabilize their cars at high speeds. Most cars today, come equipped with features like ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System), EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution), traction control, and may other such features, which make cars easier to drive. Lamborghini have devised a new software, Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata, or the LDVI system, which practically lets the car predict everything from terrain, to driving style, to the driver’s next move, and they have loaded it into their latest Lamborghini Huracán Evo Spyder.

The new Huracán is equipped with a V10 engine, which churns out an impressive 630 horsepower, possibly not up to the impossible standards set up electric hypercars of today, however still very fast. The car houses an Engine Control Unit (ECU), which gathers data from all parts of the car, and can almost determine the car’s real time behavior. The LDVI system, then uses this information, along with the terrain conditions, the driving style of the driver, and proceeds to use it to control the car, almost eliminating the scope for accidents, although not completely, given the raw power output of these cars. The system adjusts the driving mode, the cars suspension, and other aspects to give the smoothest possible ride.

“Where it’s possible to do a bigger jump in the future is with the intelligent use of four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering and the movement and control of the torque wheel by wheel in a way that can be more predictable and that is what we have with the Huracan EVO,” said Maurizio Reggiani, chief technology officer of Automobili Lamborghini.
