Wouldn’t it be great if you could ride in your car, then sit back and relax while it drove itself to your destination? Smart cars allow you to do that.

A smart car is the product of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) and modern approaches to automobile design. It is equipped with sensors, a global positioning system (GPS), computers, and software that keep it connected to the Web while it navigates through traffic.

Sensors continuously interact with the environment and objects around the vehicle — other vehicles and people — and update the software. The software, in its turn, constantly analyzes the data from the sensors and calls up the set of instructions that best deals with the current situation, controlling the car accordingly.
