Smart Cars: Let Go Of the Steering Wheel and Enjoy the Ride

Ever dreamed of kicking back, letting go of the wheel and reading the paper during the commute to work? In large cities, that could soon be a reality. We have reached an era where every single device or object is connected. We have reached a point where our cars can take us for a long ride without even bothering to drive ourselves.

Singapore becomes first country in the world to implement self-driving taxis

nuTonomy, an MIT spin-off technology startup that makes software to build self-driving cars, has beat Uber in the race to introduce self-driving cars to the roads.
