There are more than a billion cars in the world today and the number is growing rapidly. Can cutting-edge car technology help to prevent global gridlock? Theo Leggett travels to San Francisco and Mumbai to look at the future on four wheels. We'll hear from Bill Ford Jnr, Chairman of Ford Motor Co. and Hormazd Sorabjee, Editor of Autocar India. Sven Beiker, Paul Saffo and Holly Russell from Stanford University in California talk us through the cutting edge of research. Plus, noted economist Tim Harford tells us about the day game-theory geeks gained control of global poker.
