Ford's New Headlights Spot And Turn To Illuminate Hazards At Night

Self-driving smart cars might still be years away, but the technology that makes them so smart is already benefitting drivers. Ford is currently perfecting a headlight system that uses infra-red cameras to illuminate unexpected curves and hazards on the road ahead that might be invisible to drivers otherwise.


Top Gear's Richard Hammond On How Not To Drive Your Car Around Corners

Car approaches corner, car turns around corner, car continues on. It sounds so simple, if it wasn’t for all that silly physics stuff. As Richard Hammond of Top Gear fame explains, going around a corner involves more than just turning the steering wheel in the direction you want to go, especially if you’re going fast.


Humans Can't Stop Crashing Into Google's Driverless Cars

Google’s driverless cars keep getting into fender-benders, and the company keeps stressing that the crashes aren’t a result of a computer glitch or rogue robotics system. Google’s cars are getting dinged for the same reason regular cars do: because people who drive make mistakes.


Tesla's Model S Update: Faster, Cheaper, Longer Range

Earlier this week morning commuters witnessed a gruesome scene at a busy Brooklyn intersection. An SUV struck several vehicles then hit a cyclist, tangling the bike’s frame in its tyres. The cyclist died immediately, his body covered in a white sheet in the middle of the road. Still, many news outlets reported what happened as an “accident”.


Here's A 3D-Printed, Self-Driving Mini Car

I present to you the engineering equivalent of peanut butter and jelly: A self-driving vehicle that was 3D-printed. A prototype is currently being tested, and in the future it could shuttle jet-lagged passengers across terminals or hungover college kids across the quad.


Self-Driving Taxis 'Could Cut Greenhouse Gas Emissions By 90%'

If you can stomach the thought of handing over control of your hotrod to a computer, you may end up doing a significant part towards ensuring the future environmental stability of this planet. According to a new report from Berkeley Lab researchers, a wholesale switch to self-driving electric vehicles could cut greenhouse emissions by as much as 90 per cent by the year 2030.


Living With A Tesla Model S

Late last year, I wrote my review of the Tesla Motors Model S, after spending a couple of days driving the all-electric supercar around the city. I got to experience its instantaneous power, massive 17-inch touchscreen, and the froot, but not the advantages (and disadvantages) that come with having a giant high-power lithium-ion battery.
