Cars that drive themselves are not that far away, according to the latest report.

New European technology has been developed that will actually allow you to eat, read and sleep whilst driving.

How amazing is this!

Why not go the whole hog and slip an Odd size mattress in the back of the car and catch up on your shut eye on your way to work?

Or if you had a late one the night before, this is the perfect solution to sleep it off; so you arrive to your destination refreshed and energetic.

Could sleeping whilst driving ever be possible?

The Safe Road Trains for the Environment (SARTRE) program, partnered with Volvo, will install an advanced steering and sensory technology inside of cars to create a way to let cars drive themselves.

The “road train” will be a line of cars that communicates with a leader car via Wi-Fi that will allow drivers in the other cars to spend little time paying attention to the road.

Inside experts say that this technology will be fully developed by 2021 and will increase fuel efficiency by as much as 20%.

So it seems the future of driving is to curl up in the back, let the car drive it-self and get some zzzzs. Perfect.
