An automatic highway with autopilot for cars will be built



Chicago Tribune newspaper :
The "Magic beam highway" will consist of strips in the pavement that would emit electrical impulses that told the car how to perfectly drive on autopilot. The driver will then punch in his destination, kick back and read the paper while the car’s computer interacted with the road to drive him or her there. Furthermore, these “electrical impulses” will allow for super-high-tech functions such as acceleration, breaking and object detection in order to avoid accidents.
