Car will be iPad on wheelsProf.dr.ir. Maarten Steinbuch, Automotive Technology, professor
"There are more than enough challenges: the automatic gearbox, improving energy management systems and drivability versus economy. Human technology interaction increases also. Such as the steering wheel that vibrates if the driver appears to be falling asleep at the wheel or the car that brakes when the navigation system indicates an imminent red light.
Intelligent software will soon comply with all the user’s wishes.
In 2040 we will be driving electric cars that come right up to the front door and adapt their interior to match your mood. They will be fully automated, going from Point A to Point B by the most efficient route, with safety and comfort guaranteed.”
