Fully autonomous vehicles are still off somewhere in the future, but there is plenty of autonomous tech already in today’s cars. It does everything from helping keep you in you lane if you drift to completely stopping your car to avoid a crash. Tesla’s Autopilot technology passed a major milestone with customers logging one billion […]
General Motors is planning a major shift toward the development of electric vehicles. The new plan involves shuttering five North American plants, and a major workforce reduction.
Technology is cool and it lets us do all sorts of nifty stuff. Remember, once upon a time, when you had to pay attention to how long you could park your car in a spot before getting a ticket? And then, when your time was up, you had to run and move your car at […]
While we all wait on those elusive flying cars, automakers are busy trying to deliver self-driving cars. Fully autonomous cars aren’t here just yet, but features like Tesla’s Autopilot are the first steps. Tesla just took another step forward to that autonomous future with the addition of Navigate to its Autopilot technology. The existing version […]
Autonomous vehicle technology is still in its early stages. There’s testing on public roads, but with very strict parameters. Companies can’t simply develop a vehicle and set it lose on the streets. Instead, they have to apply for permission for any kind of testing. One company overstepped its bounds by using a fleet of driverless […]
Autonomous driving continues to be the next big thing, but it’s proving harder than expected to get it right. Waymo announced plans to launch its driverless taxi service by the end of the year in the U.S. followed by a launch in Europe, but the vehicles are having trouble with some rather basic driving skills. […]
In a recent study, IIHS found many causes for concern with Level 2 “self-driving” Automation from Tesla and other automakers.
Today’s cars come in every possible color. You can get them in bright oranges and reds, mild-mannered blues, or good old black, which once was the only choice. Enjoy all that color while you can because autonomous cars have trouble with some colors. The best color choice is white, so it could be a boring […]
As development of autonomous vehicle technology progresses, the need to test ever more complex scenarios becomes a problem. Testing is happening on public roads, but the everyday driving issues we all face aren’t the biggest challenge. Instead, it’s the worst case scenarios that pose a problem for engineers to decipher. Toyota plans to test out […]
