Concept cars : new technologies for the 21st century

Edsall, Larry2019
"Are we there yet?" is a question that is very familiar to parents travelling with children in the car. But it is also a question anxiously being asked by drivers and their passengers during what we keep hearing is this transitional time of personalised, automotive transportation. Once we get there, we're told, our cars will be driving themselves. All we'll need to do is to tell the vehicle where we desire to be and then ride along as we are whisked along in a vehicle that emits no pollution, nor will it crash because it will be in constant communication with all the vehicles around it. We aren't there yet, but those who produce our vehicles assure us that we are getting closer. One of the ways they make such assurances is to give us glimpses of that future in the form of concept or "dream" cars, 3-dimensional previews of where they see "there" to be. Such blending of design and engineering has accelerated in the 21st Century as auto-makers seek to inspire customers with styling that can range from purely practical, small but roomy vehicles, to those that are sleek and sexy, but all of them showcasing technology designed to make driving safer, cleaner, and even more fun.
