  1. Maybe we have to wait on the electric vehicles because maybe they go hand in hand? Don’t you think that when oil gets too expensive and the investors will start investing large amounts on electric vehicles they will also start have an eye for the autonomous car technology?

    • Exactly! Electric vehicles and other hybrid vehicles will be coming and becoming more dominant in the future market due to the resource pressure. Vehicles with renewable energy and autonomous cruise ability will bring us into the revolution of the automotive industry!
