Maybe It’s Time to Cede US Freeways to Driverless Cars – WIRED

Sunday, October 08, 2017

By now, you’ve seen the renderings and heard the promises. Someday, robocars will dominate American roadways, each racing along just inches from its neighbors, safely under the control of a computer that never makes mistakes.

First Drive: 2018 Audi A8 – The Verge – The Verge

Saturday, October 07, 2017

Audi claims the new A8, its flagship sedan, is the most technologically advanced car in its class. That’s a big boast for a crowded segment that includes the Tesla Model S, BMW 7-series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Jaguar XJ, the Lexus LS, and up-level versions of the surprisingly competent Cadillac CT6. But from its lights to its camera to its cockpit, it makes a compelling argument for best-in-class tech. The new A8…

Audi’s flagship A8 has an overwhelming amount of tech – Engadget – Engadget

Saturday, October 07, 2017

Select models pack an all-new “Audi AI active suspension,” an electronic chassis powered by a 48-volt system. That gives you dynamic all-wheel steering and a fully active electromechanical suspension that can do some interesting tricks. For instance, the front camera can scan the road ahead and, when it detects a bump, pre-lift the body to better soak it up. Furthermore, if the 360-degree cameras detect an impending side impact, the…

The company offers national and local power grids services from your battery, making more money that it…

Saturday, October 07, 2017

Update with video Bill Maher seized on the so-called Hot Cars Act – a legislative proposal that would require automobile sensors reminding drivers of kids left in rear seats – as yet another example of Democrats attempting to “child-proof the Republic” while the government ignores larger issues. “Thanks Government,” he said. “We’ll get to gun control later.” (Take a look at the segment above). The gibe came during tonight’s New…

Let’s Analyze the Ridiculous Physics of the Bugatti Chiron – WIRED

Saturday, October 07, 2017

At one point in the past, I was a teenager. Hard to believe, I know, but it’s true. During that time, I thought about teenager things. In particular, I recall thinking about and wanting a super fast car. Maybe a Lamborghini or a Ferrari. At lunch my friends and I would argue about the best cars (THE BEST), and what we wouldn’t give to drive them. Today I drive a…
