Autonomous cars are on public roads right now, but only in testing. The technology that allows for fully autonomous vehicles isn’t quite there yet, despite features like automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and limited forms of auto pilot. New proposed legislation could speed the testing process and make it easier for automakers to bring […]
A new study by MIT shows that across all ages interest in automated driving is dropping as the public learns more about the technology.
You might be surprised to learn they are already here.
The idea of autonomous cars is no longer a dream of the far distant future. These vehicles are here right now and they are testing on public roads across the country. The reason we don’t all own one is largely due to the snail’s pace at which testing is done. New research found a way […]
Of the numerous autonomous safety technologies in our cars, automatic emergency braking (AEB) and forward collision warning show some of the most promising results. They’re so good, the lack of these technologies can now lower a vehicle’s safety ratings. This has prompted Tesla to add AEB back into the Model S and Model X after […]
BestRide recently spotted an autonomous vehicle on a public road near Boston, but it wasn’t what we thought.
We’re working with Car Talk, MIT and the New England Motor Press Association to extend the research we’ve one in understanding how comfortable American drivers are with autonomous technology. The MIT AgeLab is again presenting a survey that asks pointed questions about your experience, interest and knowledge of autonomous technologies. Make your voice heard.
There are big names working on autonomous car technology. Uber is testing its cars in select cities and you’ll find autonomous features in production vehicles, but not every company trying to build the next big thing is a household name. A group of students and start-ups recently took to the track with their autonomous creations […]
Autonomous cars are testing on public roads. This is nothing new. They’ve been out there for years. Their track record isn’t perfect, but it’s pretty good. Despite that record, a recent crash involving an autonomous Uber car in Tempe, Arizona is getting lots of attention.
