Ever-Evolving Mobility Machines
Smart Growthers keep hoping we’ll opt out of automobiles, but the reason we won’t is, of course, two parts personal freedom but also one part innovative technology that is making the automobile more suitable as a computerized tool. Technology Review is reporting that researchers have now developed smart headlights that can see through rain and snow. Other features like adaptive cruise control and self-parking both enhance safety and comfort. Seen apart, we marvel at the neat gizmos. Taken together, we see a total transformation of automobility looming ahead. This is a positive (one is tempted to say ‘progressive’) step toward the future.
