Automobile industries is trying so many alternative means of fuels this will put heavy demand on the electronics for the engines and it will equally create innovative means of researches in every vehicle. This will really keep the car electronics continuously changing. Tata's are working on cars that can run of AIR, one of the pakistani designer has recently shown car running of water, these are very strange and shocking experiments!!!

I can understand innovating engine design will help improve fuel efficiency. I have hard time to wrap my mind around semiconductor innovation will have similar impact. To have a better algorithm to help fuel injection and, to coordinate valves opening and ignition might have some impact. Even so, I am not sure how much it can improve given substantial advancement since the born of VTEC and similar technology. No doubt infotainment is the goal of near future. Self driving car will be a bit far; yet, it will drive the industry to the future.

I don't think anyone is worried about the impending demise of the automobile. Far from it; automobiles are clogging roads, consuming energy, and adding pollution globally. The great challenge is to develop efficient alternatives (trains, buses) that are inexpensive and convenient enough to encourage people to commute by public transportation.
