Tired of driving? Want your own chauffeur? In the near future, you may have one in the form of a hard drive.
Autonomous cars--or driverless vehicles--are expected to take over the road by 2020. But will "smart cars" be as readily embraced as smart phones?
Let's hope so. These vehicles will be electric and lighter, which means they're environmentally friendly. The popularity of electric autonomous cars can help us reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 200 million tons. They may not be the flying cars of "The Jetsons," but this is a very good step in the right direction.
