Automated 2-wheeler…will it be the car of the future?

En-V - General Motors 2-wheeled concept vehicle

Many futuristic electronics showed up at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas, including the EN-V “electric networked vehicles” by General Motors.  The EN-V is about half the size of current mini-electric cars, and it’s built on Segway technology, so it can pivot in place and park without any turn radius. GM says five or six of them can fit in one standard U.S.-size parking space. It’s bristling with GPS antennas and motion sensors, so it can autonomously sense possible collisions and avoid them on its own. Since  it can drive itself, it can be retrieved it by telling it to come to you.  For those who live in congested areas, this would be a great way to get around.
