The CNN 10: Future of driving



Watch this video
Unless you're an inveterate walker or a mass-transit rider, you probably spend more time in your car each week than anywhere except your workplace and your home.
It's not always pleasant. Highway gridlock, a fruitless search for a parking space or a brush with a thundering tractor-trailer can rattle all but the most Zen drivers.
Things are about to get better. A new wave of innovation, led by carmakers and automotive-tech companies, is transforming the driving experience. Thanks largely to on-board computers, our vehicles are becoming smarter, nimbler, safer and more fun. (Human drivers, unfortunately, will remain as erratic as ever.)
Fully self-driving cars remain some years away. But new technology in the next five to 10 years will help cars park themselves, monitor the alertness of the driver and even communicate with each other to avoid collisions. Tomorrow's cars may have long-range headlights, external airbags and hydrogen fuel-cell engines that emit only water.
With this project, CNN is honoring 10 innovations in automotive tech. Some of these may gain traction quickly, while others may spin their wheels in the marketplace. But all have the potential to change how we drive – in a good way.
May we present the CNN 10: Future of driving.
