When Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk recently said his cars would feature auto-steering by this summer, it caused a bit of a scare. But drivers, be forewarned: It doesn't take a robot actually taking the wheel to show artificially intelligent cars are already veering into our lanes.

While Silicon Valley and the automotive world like to focus on things like flying cars and self-driving vehicles, there's a lot of impressively advanced technology that's already on the road today.

Advanced computer systems and passenger features might stop a bit short of the artificial intelligence we've been promised by the tech utopians, but they're real and available (though they're not cheap).
