These October 2016 auto concepts range from shared electric cars to autonomous construction trucks that are changing the way we transport building materials. The month's most notable standouts include self-driving car sensors like Velodyne's 'LiDAR' device that uses patented laser detector technology to identify objects and road obstacles while giving drivers peace of mind.

When looking at the month's compact vehicles, standouts include the sleek 'Amber One' concept car which aims to change the ride-sharing industry. The car is designed for co-ownership and sharing rather than for purchase and fuses function and compact design with elegant and modern aesthetics.

Other memorable October 2016 auto concepts include rugged rescue vehicles that are designed to withstand rough terrain while boasting other impressive features like a solar charging function that powers devices even in areas where a traditional source of electricity is unavailable.
