Study: Humans Driving Cars Are More Likely To Hurt Other Humans Than Self-Driving Cars

With autonomous vehicle operators now required to report their crashes, we finally have some data to compare robot drivers to human drivers when it comes to road safety. Here’s one good argument for a robot-driving future: Human drivers are more likely to get in crashes that hurt or kill other humans.

Over 90,000 Australian Vehicles Affected By Volkswagen Emissions Scandal

This $20,000 Carbon Fibre Bike Weighs A Ridiculous 5.4kg

This ultralight bike costs as much as a car. Not a surprise given Audi’s at the helm, but the nutso price tag includes some design and tech that’s pretty cool.

Nvidia's Self-Driving Computer Can Also Spot The Fuzz [Video]

Autonomous cars are fast becoming a reality — and they are getting smarter each and every time they take to the road. This is thanks to deep structured learning algorithms that allow self-steering vehicles to assess, react and adapt to changing road conditions and file the memory away for later. As demonstrated in this Nvidia Drive PX video clip, they are also proficient at identifying individual vehicle types — including cop cars.

Audi TT Coupe 2015: Australian Hands On

The TT has been a staple of Audi’s sports car line-up for years now. Thankfully, it got a much-needed redesign for 2015, and it’s an amazing car to drive. Here’s what it’s like behind the wheel.

Inside Audi's Robotic Car Factory Of The Future

Cars are evolving. We’ve gone from exclusively burning dead fossils in our petrol tanks to charging them up at the wall overnight, and now we’re even thinking about using even fancier ways to get our vehicles from A-to-B. With fancier cars has to come fancier production methods. Step inside the top-secret Audi production facility in Germany where humans work hand-in-servo with robots to build thousands of custom cars a day.

BMW And Audi Are Working On Low-Cost Carbon Fibre

Lightweight carbon fibre in your everyday road-going family sedan could be commonplace in the not-too-distant future, with the news that BMW and Audi are working hard to cut the cost of producing the high-tech material by 90 per cent, bringing it into competition with steel and aluminium for mass-market automotive production.

Audi S1 Sportback: Australian Hands On

Want to get an Audi S model in your life but afraid you can’t afford it? The new Audi S1 Quattro might be just what you need. We went driving around the wilds of Tasmania with the new beastly hot hatch, and it’s incredible.

Audi A3 e-tron: Australian Hands-On

Hybrid petrol-electric cars are evolving at a rapid pace, but early examples like Toyota’s Prius weren’t as earth-changing and fuel-saving as we’d all hoped. Ingolstadt is taking care of that last point, though — it doesn’t want to be massively revolutionary, but Audi’s new A3 e-tron city car marries an electric motor to a regular fossil-fueled engine, and it can travel 50km without using a drop of petrol. When it does use dinosaur juice, it does so frugally and sensibly.
