AGING BABY BOOMERS REQUIRE THE DRIVER-PROOFING OF CARS:

The coming smartening of the car: How Intelligent Cars Will Make Driving Easier and Greener (Rebecca Boyle Posted 07.18.2011, Popular Science)

Lawmakers in Nevada made a pretty forward-thinking move a couple weeks ago when they passed a measure ordering new regulations for driverless cars. Many vehicles already participate in once-human-driven activities like parking and skid control, and it's not long until they'll be able to navigate, make decisions and drive totally by themselves.

But in some ways, the world of self-governing cars is already upon us. Using relatively simple software and adjustments to existing hardware, major automakers in the U.S. and Europe are making cars work smarter and greener in a way that has nothing to do with hybrid engines or alternative fuels.

Connected to each other and to the cloud, cars will be able to make their own decisions -- so the future of driving, put simply, will be largely out of human hands.


Thank you, Jesus.
