Driverless Cars

There's no stopping it now. The driverless car is on the way. From highways in the United States, to the Autobahn in Germany, many countries are making ready for this new vehicle by testing and retesting autonomous technology. Almost every major manufacterer is devoting enormous amounts of their resources to the research and development of these vehicles.

Ford’s CEO was recently quoted, “Probably, in the next five years, you’ll see somebody introduce autonomous vehicles.”

General Motors, the second largest manufacture of cars in the world, recently said it would introduce hands-free driving technology in as little as TWO years.

Not only are manufactures gearing up for these self-guided vehicles, but laws that govern the roads and highways are being put in place around the world to welcome their arrival. In Germany, legal guidelines are now taking form for the influx of these cars. The German transportation department is putting together committees to develop the legal framework to make it permissible for this type of self-guided vehicle to travel in their country.

Why is this of special interest to us? In the summer of 1933, Brother Branham had a series of visions of which he prophesied would take place before the end of the world. The Lord spoke to him, saying that the Coming of the Lord was drawing nigh, but before that takes place, these seven things would happen:

1. Mussolini would invade Ethiopia and that nation would "fall at his steps," but he would come to a horrible end with his own people turning on him.

2. An Austrian by the name of Adolph Hitler would rise up as dictator over Germany, and that he would draw the world into war. It showed the Siegfried line and how our troops would have a terrible time to overcome it. Then it showed that Hitler would come to a mysterious end.

3. There would be three great "ISMS": Fascism, Nazism, Communism, but the first two would be swallowed up into the third. The voice admonished, "WATCH RUSSIA, WATCH RUSSIA. Keep your eye on the King of the North."

4. The fourth vision showed the great advances in science that would come after the second world war. It was headed up in the vision of a plastic bubble-topped car that was running down beautiful highways under remote control so that people appeared seated in this car without a steering wheel and they were playing some sort of a game to amuse themselves.

5. The fifth vision had to do with the moral problem of our age, centering mostly around women. God showed Brother Branham that women began to be out of their place with the granting of the vote. Then they cut off their hair, which signified that they were no longer under the authority of a man but insisted on either equal rights, or in most cases, more than equal rights. She adopted men's clothing and went into a state of undress, until the last picture he saw was a woman naked except for a little fig leaf type apron. With this vision he saw the terrible perversion and moral plight of the whole world.

6. In the sixth vision there arose up in America a most beautiful, but cruel woman. She held the people in her complete power. Brother Branham believed that this was the rise of the Roman Catholic Church, though he knew it could possibly be a vision of some woman rising in great power in America due to a popular vote by women.

7. In the last vision, he heard a most terrible explosion. As he turned to look, Brother Branham saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America.

Brother Branham pointed out in 1961 that the driverless, egg-shaped car as spoken of in the fourth vision was seen in Popular Mechanics magazine. However, even with the Popular Mechanics rendition of the futuristic car, the reality was that cars looked more like a locomotive than an egg. And still, that picture was of a shoebox with a bubble on the top, not an egg shape. All the pieces are finally coming together today: egg-shaped, bubble top, autonomous; it's all perfectly in line with his vision. 

In the latest introduction to the fully autonomous cars market, Mercedes Benz introduced their concept car, which has four seats, including the front seats that can face each other rather than the road. Eighty-two years later, we are seeing the fulfillment. 

The following is an article published on January 9, 2015 from the Wall Street Daily:

Needless to say, the thought of computers taking over from humans behind the wheel is a massive cultural shift for consumers to digest.

As Shapiro himself said after his driverless entrance at CES, “It’s a very odd feeling to totally give up the wheel to a robot.”

Gradually, though, the shift towards acceptance is taking place. A Guardian poll last year showed that two-thirds of people said they’d feel comfortable riding in an autonomous car.

Not to mention the safety and productivity aspects. A recent Morgan Stanley (MS) report said driverless cars could add a whopping $5.6-trillion injection into the global economy, due to fewer accidents and increased productivity from being able to work in the car.

This bodes well for Mercedes-Benz and a host of other automakers who are all working on driverless cars.

The F 015: Where Driverless Tech Meets Mercedes Luxury

The company’s new design at CES is electronically powered, using a sophisticated hybrid electric fuel cell that allows the car to travel around 680 miles with zero emissions. This includes 560 miles on power from the fuel cell and 125 miles using the battery.

It’s also fitted with the usual array of high-tech cameras, ultrasonic sensors, and LED displays to monitor the road conditions and control the car’s performance.

But it’s not the only technology that turned heads at the show…

Inside the car, the four-seater interior layout combines a splash of innovation with a nod to the past. Mercedes says the design “takes its cue from the idea of the horse-drawn carriage” by having “four swiveling lounge chairs that allow passengers in the front and rear to face one another.”

Obviously, the company has included its usual smattering of advanced technology and luxury features, too. This includes high-resolution touchscreens that control the lighting, temperature, and various media applications.

After all, if you’re not doing the driving, you need something else to do in the car!

For example, the passenger can check email, browse the web, watch movies, and partake in videoconferences. The car is also able to respond to gesture-control and eye-tracking technology to operate the various systems.

The cars in that day will be shaped like an egg, running back like in this form there. And it'll be controlled by some kind of a power that they won't even have to use the steering wheel at times, just set her and go on like that (See?), before the annihilation. Now, you remember that I--I... That's on record.    57-0602 Life
