    Tech startups want to change the way you drive

    It's no secret that technology is changing the car industry. The major automakers, as well as tech giants such as Google and possibly Apple, are laying the groundwork for the first driverless cars. Meanwhile, a number of engineers and entrepreneurs have started their own companies to tackle other automotive challenges.  
    The venture capital investing boom has sent millions of dollars to startups that serve the upper crust of society with an app to deliver your laundry or order a valet to park your car, but many VCs continue to resist investing in viable businesses that are bringing toilets, water and electricity to the rural poor.
