The tech industry’s star show is rapidly becoming a showcase for car technology. Here’s a glimpse of what’s coming our way.

Indeed, the keynote speaker for this year's 2014 CES show in Las Vegas was none other than Rupert Stadler, chairman of Audi AG (pictured), who promised, amongst other things, a self-driving Audi in the not so distant future.
