All around the world, we use our cars every day -- to pick up the kids from school, to visit the supermarket to buy groceries, and to commute to work. Cars are incredibly convenient, but navigating through traffic and parking presents an unwanted challenge. Here's how Ford, one of the world's longest-running car brands, is using technology to solve problems and revolutionise the future of driving.

We've been driving cars on roads for over a century now, since the Ford Model T opened up travel to the middle class. But as we move well into the 21st century, we've mastered the art of our cars communicating with their drivers. Now, it's more about the cars on our roads talking to each other, and using the internet, big data and software tools to overhaul the efficiency of driving through cities.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

The pace of development in the automotive world is fast. New cars are out every few months, and even in affordable vehicles we're seeing new and innovative technologies appearing on a regular basis. Just about the only thing evolving faster is the smartphones that we carry around in our pockets. Soon enough, the communication between your car and your phone will become more unified than ever.

The cars on our roads are getting smarter than ever, and they're evolving quickly. The next car that you buy could be connected to the internet every second that you travel, using that data to make your journey safer and more efficient, and making your life -- even when you're not driving -- more streamlined and stress-free. Here's what you can imagine from the future of the automobile.
