This week on the Thursday Night Special, we present a one-hour special from IEEE Spectrum which explores the latest technological advances for the automobile, and previews cars we may see in the not-too-distant future.

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.
