FutureCar: Accelerating into the Future

(Rochester, NY) – FutureCar: Accelerating into the Future, a one-hour special that explores the latest technological advances for the automobile and previews cars we may see in the not-too-distant future, airs Thursday, January 1, 2015 at 1 p.m. on AM 1370.

For the last 100 years cars have been pretty much the same fundamentally; mechanically driven, energy from oil, powered by combustion, controlled mechanically and hydraulically, driven by a person. But now, we’re starting to see new designs for the automobile; electrically driven, using diverse sources of energy, controlled digitally or electronically, able to drive themselves.
