Steering wheels? Passe. Pedals? Outdated. Signaling? Well, nobody does that now, so we probably can't expect much of it in the future, either. Here's the future of steering your car, and it may be a lot closer than you think.
With Your Tweets
Everything is connected to social networking these days: witness the Chevy Cruze offering up Facebook updates while you drive. But Mercedes Benz is taking it to a whole new level by actually controlling a car with Tweets.
Yep, this is 100% legit: Mercedes, as part of their ongoing technological effort, used Twitter to promote their “Tweet Race.” The idea is that instead of giving you a keyfob that controls your car, or even forcing you to download an app, you can use simple text messages or web commands to turn on your car, unlock it, and so on.
If that sounds a bit “downmarket” for the luxury brand, remember that it's not just Mercedes; it's Smart, Freightliner, various bus brands, and other industrial vehicle outfits that could simply hand their employees a cheap cellphone (which could easily be tracked) instead of a key fob (which can’t). This will be a small consolation when the driver mistweets and the bus blows through a red light, but still.
With Your Voice
Any fan of Star Trek remembers that in the twenty-fourth century, everything is controlled by voice commands, which must make showering incredibly awkward. Fortunately, Ford engineers have seen the same TV shows, and have already made a voice-controlled vehicle. Sort of.
The Ford Focus has a new technology called “MyFord Touch,” which allows the driver to thumb a button, state a command, and then, say, ask the car to turn up the air conditioning, find a specific song, or receive text messages. Dangerously, it also serves as a Wi-Fi hotspot, which we're pretty sure is going to have to be shut off while driving, just to keep some jerk from tailgating you to surf the Web.
With Your Very Mind
Remember that Clint Eastwood movie Firefox? The one where Clint Eastwood steals a web browser, er, an advanced Russian fighter jet? Where he has to think in Russian to control it?
Well, some academics in Germany really loved that movie, because they did it with a car.
OK, so their mind-controlled car doesn't have any weapons (yet). It does have a wide array of sensors to give the car an awareness of its environment in 3D, which essentially turns the car into a robot: it can even automatically drive itself for short distances.
The idea is, wearing a specialized piece of headgear, you give the car commands like “left,” “right,” and “that old lady is worth fifty points,” and the car takes care of the rest. Yes, soon, you might simply be giving your car directions, as it takes care of everything else.
Of course, it still can't parallel park. Some things, even a machine can't do.

Quoting Driver Johnny Sauter on Martinsville....
ON MARTINSVILLE: "I’ve always said this is a place that you have to race aggressively to get anywhere. Track position and tire management is more important at the end of the day here than truck mechanics and performance. In my head, I know I have to qualify in the top five to really have a fighting chance at the win this year – with the heavy competition we have. It’s a hard place to control your own destiny, with all the other drivers and strategies and no room to move. It’s exciting, quick and tough in the corners.
“There’s a lot more beating and banging here at a short track, and I live for that. If you know me, you know that! We’re adding a new partner on for Martinsville – Eibach Springs – so we’re hoping to have a great performance this weekend.”
ON HIS SHORT TRACK ROOTS: "I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin – population 850. My ten brothers and sisters and I lived around our dad’s racing career, and it was all I wanted to do to work in the shop. I didn’t want to hunt and fish. I wanted to race. The tracks there were all short tracks, and it was really a set of tracks to cut your teeth on. Nothing prepared me better than the short track roots I was brought up on around my dad and brothers in Wisconsin. Martinsville reminds me of those roots, so I really like this track. Does that give me an edge? I don’t know, you’ll have to watch!”
ON THE “PAPERCLIP” CHALLENGES: "The biggest challenge at Martinsville is getting into the corner and being stable. You have to have that perfect combination of driving in, getting on the brake pedal, and trying not to gas too much and be loose off. It’s so easy to overdrive the corners. A veteran driver once told me that Martinsville was like driving on ice – you’ve got to watch spinning those back tires. He was right, and that’s the advice I give to anyone who asks me. Racing the race track is so important here, as well as defense. Without being able to pass much, you’ve got to show your competition where you’re staying and where you’re going."
ON “BABYWATCH”: "My wife Cortney is due with our second child – our first daughter – on Monday, just after the race weekend. We’re really excited to add to the family, but Cortney was the first person to tell me to get out there and race this weekend. She’s my biggest supporter. I did hear, though, that our friends at SafeAuto Racing were doing a ‘guess the baby’s weight’ contest on their Facebook page. You have to love modern technology – but if you want to have some fun, log on and guess…you could win!"
