I think one of the most exciting technological advancements is the ability for cars to drive themselves.
Seems like there's really three companies leading the way that I've been tracking: Waymo, Uber, Tesla.
Waymo (a part of Alphabet/Google)

Seems like the traditional automakers have realized that they need to get on the self-driving bandwagon or risk being irrelevant. It's interesting to watch
