Self-Driving Cars To Increase Need for Cell Phone Signal Boosters

The future is coming and it is coming fast. We're seeing an increased level of artificial intelligence in almost everything we do, from Smart Home technology to our online shopping experiences. and it seems as though we're just weeks away from the infamous Self-Driving Car becoming a reality.

Of course, the idea of self-driving cars gets a mixed reaction. There're a lot of questions that come up regarding autonomous vehicles: Will they be safe? Will we even need to learn how to drive one day? How will they be monitored? These are important questions for sure, but they are all virtually unanswerable right now.

Safety concern is the first that comes to mind when the topic veers to auto-driving vehicles. Conversely, autonomous vehicles are dubbed to be such precise machines that they will in fact one day banish dangerous driving caused by drivers that are distracted anyway or drowsy, drunk, talking on cell phones, etc.

Our biggest question, however, is one that we don't think enough people are talking about and it is one that we feel confident in knowing the answer:

What will we do in our car when we don't have to drive it?

For the most part, we will obviously be on our cell phones. This is an educated guess based on the fact that most of us are on our phones whenever we're not in the car anyway. A lot of us are on them even in our cars (hopefully while safely parked in a parking lot).

With the self-driving car, however, the legality and safety of talking on one's cell phone will likely no longer be a concern (yet to be determined under current laws). Amount of people using their phones while driving will definitely increase dramatically (as long it becomes legal again with self-driving cars). There's just one small problem: Doing so, will lead to a higher level of frustration when we encounter areas with spotty reception.

Thankfully, this doesn't have to become a real concern because there is already a solution with car cell phone signal boosting technology. When we finally do have self-driving cars, it seems only natural that the need for a cell phone signal booster is going to increase. After all, the whole appeal of a self-driving car is that you will be able to be more productive by answering work emails, making calls, or more entertained by watching a movie. Missed the latest episode of that hit show everyone in the office is obsessed with? No longer a problem. That is what commutes will be for. Feels almost like being in a roller coaster on the way down with butterflies in the stomach? But if you can’t access the apps you need, you might as well just be… driving, right?

Luckily, with our self driving car cell phone signal boosters, you won't have this issue. When you have an autonomous vehicle signal booster installed, you can relax knowing that you're not going to drop the call with your client, or miss an important email. You can stream shows with ease. You can post photos and share stories with all of your Instagram followers anytime, anywhere.

You can call your family to brag about your sweet new futuristic car that drives itself.

Like we said, the future is coming and it is coming fast, so make sure you can keep up.

  • This blog got me thinking about what we’ll do when we’re in a self-driving car. I can’t read books because of the motion but I do like talking on the phone or listening to books on tape. I could see the need for a signal booster in that case because who knows if self-driving cars will cause any interference with signals. There’s also the problem of what to do if you’re in an accident.

  • CAN I USE A CAR CELL PHONE BOOSTER IN MY HOME? That’s a good question and I know people ask the reverse too, “Can I use my home cell phone booster for my vehicle?” First, an in-home/building cell signal booster cannot be used in vehicles because they typically have the higher than max 50dB Gain allowed for in-vehicle use. What about using a car cell phone booster for your home? That is possible. The only problem is that your indoor coverage will be limited to about 4 feet around where your interior antenna is, more than enough for your vehicle’s cabin but nowhere near enough for your home or office.

  • I want a flying car, especially if I don’t have to drive it. Now on to a serious question, can I use a car cell phone booster in my home? That way I can maximize the benefits.

  • I don’t use my cell phone when I’m driving (except hands-free calling), but I do get jealous when everyone else is watching videos, emailing, or playing games while I drive. At this point I haven’t thought about getting a car cell phone booster. However, I’m reconsidering as self-driving cars become more common. I would like the best cell phone signal booster for my car if I’m not driving it so I can enjoy the comforts of a strong signal and get quick access to the Internet. Can’t believe how fast tech is changing!

  • When you’re driving your car, you don’t need dropped calls. It’s a pain calling people, even with voice activated calling (and you don’t dare use your phone because you don’t want a ticket or worse, to cause an accident). That’s why people look for the best way how to boost their cell phone signal for their cars or trucks. When you’re driving, you sometimes are far from a cell tower or there is terrain weakening the signal, causing dropped calls and all sorts of phone headaches. A cell phone booster for your car or truck will take a weak signal and amplify it so you can make those calls with a stronger signal, avoiding poor call quality and dropped calls. It also means faster data speeds if you’re listening to music or a passenger is playing games or some other activity that relies on a strong signal. Right now, a driver can’t do that, but as self-driving cars become prevalent, drivers will be using their phones more for work and recreation, meaning they’ll want a strong cell signal. If you don’t have an interior cell phone booster for your car or truck, you’ll be wanting one soon.

  • While I’m still uncertain about the safety of self-driving cars, I am certain about the capabilities of cell phone signal boosters. I used to think there was no solution for dropped calls, fuzzy reception, and glacial data speeds. I’d upgraded to newer models with little improvement and frankly, I’m not dropping hundreds of dollars on a new phone or committing to a long contract. However, I’ve found that cell phone boosters can increase your signal, taking a weak signal (which results in the aforementioned problems) and boosting it so you have clear calls, reduced lost calls, and improvements in data speed. That’s why people buy cell phone boosters for their home to get better signals. Likewise, people get 4g cell phone signal boosters for their cars because they experience the same problem driving—lack of a quality signal. With self-driving cars, I can see people getting bored so they’ll want to putter around on their phone, playing games, calling friends, or even doing work. Thus, they’ll be looking for the best cell phone boosters for their cars so they can use their phone without worrying about lousy cell signals. Wow. What a world we’re living in.
