A multitasking robot that saves our time and can do stuff safely and efficiently is probably the most desired thing in 21st century. So, for your safety on the road these robotic cars with incredibly powerful features are here. Let a robot drive for you, so that you keep enjoying your journey that is going to be even more interesting with these robotic cars.
It is a diesel-electric hybrid system with two electric engines and a small diesel motor. As an electric car, it gets 31 miles before you have to switch on diesel, where a full 6.6-gallon tank can take you to 400 miles.
The car is remotely controlled by a computer and it avoids obstacles through sensors, lasers, radar and onboard video cameras.

Futuristic two-seater Audi sports car is specifically made for police that is built with spheres instead of wheels and butterfly-action doors.
They are electric cars so there is no need to worry about fuel. You can just grab the first fully-charged one from the rack and go. MIT Media Lab is working on this carbon-free, and environment-friendly vehicle that will soon be available to tourists.
The interesting thing about this car is that the car wheels can turn a full 360 degrees. You can rotate the car while you are moving in any direction.
Google's cars scan their surroundings to build a detailed 3D map of features such as road edges, signs, guardrails and overpasses. Each time a car follows a particular route, it collects more data to update the 3D map.
These Google cars have traversed San Francisco's Lombard Street, the Golden Gate Bridge and around Lake Tahoe.
This car will be on roads till 2020. The car is equipped with laser scanners, "Around View" cameras, artificial intelligence, and actuators. Nissan is all ready to make this the smartest car of the century.
