Future of Travel 

Passengers at Heathrow Airport's new terminal will travel the two and a half miles from the car park to the airport check-in, using driverless four-person vehicles. Since most of a flight is computer controlled, it does not require a vivid imagination to foresee a future of hands-free travel.

In fact, with the use of biometric data on passports and the trend towards networking databases, passengers could be scanned at the car park and then processed by the computers; being automatically delivered to their destination in much the same way as their luggage. At least when luggage gets lost, there could then be a fair chance that it will be accompanied by its owner.
