Interesting Tech @ Detroit 2013
While the autonomous cars topic is showing a lot of activity since the start of the new year, there a few other new concepts being prototyped and demonstrated.
They are not yet into production, though they catch attention. However, I failed to see inherent value in some of these new techniques:
A couple of them here:
"A Future Without Steering Wheels"
"Steer by wire" technology means you can steer the car with joystick, voice control etc. - not necessarily by steering.
Not sure whether there is such need or how it makes driving any more pleasant / easier / safe etc. Anyone can throw some light, why they'd create such a technology?
"Plug-In SUV" by VW
While the title catches the attention, article failed to explain what a "Plug-In SUV" concept is. Any elaboration if someone has gone through such term will be useful.
