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.
Uber is testing autonomous cars across the country and has run into a few issues. Cars in San Francisco were pulled from the streets in a matter of days over a disagreement with the state over permitting. Cars in other cities are still on the road, but are needing a surprising amount of help from […]
California is a particularly friendly state for companies testing self-driving car technology. There are, however, rules that must be followed in the interest of keeping the public safe. These rules include testing only cars that having a steering wheel, pedals, and a human driver sitting behind that wheel ready to take over if something goes […]
The big auto shows are an opportunity for automakers to show off their latest offerings. They’re where we get debuts of new models and sneak peeks at concept cars that show the future of automotive design and technology. Volkswagen took this year’s Geneva Motor Show as an opportunity to showcase the Sedric. It’s a fully […]
Fully autonomous cars are still in testing, but our cars already have numerous autonomous features. Everything from lane keep assist to adaptive cruise control to automatic emergency braking are precursors to future cars that will do everything without human intervention. The technology is coming and so are the regulations. U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao announced […]
