NTSB forum puts drowsy driving in the spotlight

The National Transportation Safety Board is ringing an alarm over drowsy driving. Safety officials believe it's just as big of a threat as drunk driving. Jeff Pegues looks at how this deadly problem affects nearly all Americans. 100,000 accidents and up to 5,000 to 6,000 fatal crashes each year can be attributed to drowsy driving, and the concern is those numbers may be conservative estimates.   http://www.cbsnews.com/news/ntsb-to-hold-forum-on-how-drowsy-driving-affects-americans/

Velodyne's Sensor cuts self-driving car costs

You can't buy one yet, but the autonomous vehicle just got a little cheaper. As long as Google Inc. has been testing its experimental self-driving car, the costliest bit of hardware has been its rotating roof-mounted turret, which uses a laser-based radar system called lidar to map the car's surroundings in three dimensions. These spinning sensors, supplied by Morgan Hill, Calif., technology firm Velodyne Inc., cost $30,000 to $85,000 -- cheap enough for automakers and suppliers to buy them for research but far too expensive for a...
