It’s easy to forget how integral automobiles are to our lives.

But moving into the future, the use of automobiles poses huge challenges to the human race.

The automotive industry has gone through many attempts to innovate, and while some of them may seem to be far off futuristic dreams, others may be much closer to reality than we realise.

Here are top 10 cars of the future that already exist today.

10. Flying Cars

Elon Musk may not like the idea of a flying car, but the integration of flight into our daily transport has been a dream of science fiction fans for decades.

Slovakian company AeroMobil has created a prototype that incorporates flight features  such as avionics equipment, autopilot, and a parachute deployment system into a vehicle that fits into any standard parking space, makes use of regular gasoline, and can fit right in with other vehicles on the road.

The current prototype, AeroMobil 3.0, is said to be able to use any airport in the world, but will also be able to take off from and land on surfaces that are just a few hundred meters long. 

9. Talking Cars

While virtual assistants like Siri and Google Now can easily be incorporated into our cars with the use of smartphones, automobiles have moved beyond just talking to drivers  they now talk to each other.

Automotive innovation is currently exploring V2V communications, to see how cars can use wireless connections to ‘talk’ to each other.

This goes beyond the beeping sensors that are now commonplace in most new car models V2V communications will allow cars to broadcast their position, speed, steering-wheel position, brake status, and other data to other vehicles within a few hundred meters.

8. Smart Cars

Israeli company MobilEye is responsible for a lot of the safety features available in car models from the US, Japan, and Europe. They can even detect traffic lights and read road signs.

In some car models, MobilEye has even connected cameras to brakes, so that vehicles can brake in time to avoid potential accidents.

Another recent innovation, the stop-start system, has become not only accepted, but expected in new automobile models.

The technology allows car engines to stop consuming fuel in certain traffic situations, and is said to increase fuel economy by 5 – 10 percent.
