The future of transportation

In the movie Minority Report, one of the action scenes features star Tom Cruise in a chase scene involving this state of the art self-driving Lexus. The film was supposedly set in 2054, so it was obviously science fiction. But the scene whetted our appetites for the exciting technology the future will bring to transportation.

But is a self-driving car only the stuff of science fiction? Could that technology even be available soon? Can you imagine how nice that would be? No more lost driving time. No more traffic jams even. Imagine the possibilities! It would be pretty cool.

And you know what folks, forget 2054, it could be here sooner than you think.
