Advances in computing and sensors will likely put robots in the driver’s seat. Automated vehicles are already being tested in cities around the world. And big companies – from Google to GM – are banking on a future of self-driving vehicles.

From our thermostats to our watches, it seems like all our devices are going online. In just a few years, vehicles of all types will be able to communicate with each other, potentially increasing safety and convenience.

By 2025, it is expected that all new road vehicles will be capable of communicating in some way. 

When the CEO of Shell started driving an electric car, even electric vehicle skeptics did a double-take. Cheaper to run, smaller carbon footprints – electric vehicles are going mainstream. That goes for bikes, cars, trucks, and buses.

By law, all new vehicles sold by 2040 in British Columbia must have zero tailpipe emissions – meaning that electric cars will soon be the norm.
