The future of transport is about more than driverless cars

The future of transport is about more than driverless cars The problem of moving people around efficiently is a bit of a ticking time bomb, as the global population grows and concentrates in already overcrowded urban centres.

Technology will no doubt play a huge role in addressing that problem, but many of the people working on that at the moment are not doing so... [Lire la suite]

Will vertical take-off flying cars kill driverless cars ?

Will vertical take-off flying cars kill driverless cars ? A successful test flight has been carried out on a prototype ‘flying car’ created by a company in Germany.

How We RollIS AMERICA READY FOR A DRIVERLESS FUTURE?

How We Roll IS AMERICA READY FOR A DRIVERLESS FUTURE? EVEN IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN A DRIVERLESS CAR ON THE ROAD, you've seen plenty of them in the headlines. Flocks of them are predicted to swarm the streets, ready to roll up at the tap of a smart phone. They're predicted to be clean, safe, convenient, and if the Google car is any indication, adorable. And they're predicted to be ready for American streets before you can say, "Fully autonomous self-driving vehicle." But a prediction won't schlep your kid to soccer practice. And... [Lire la suite]
