Land Rover’s new car has an integration with Tile, which sounds geeky as hell because it is. But it means one highly important thing: if you get in the car without your wallet or keys, your car will inform you of this.
Tesla’s new semi-autonomous Autopilot feature has already saved a few YouTubers from spectacular crashes. But according to Elon Musk, those aren’t the exception to the rule: Autopilot has decreased crashes by 50 percent in a few months.
Mitsubishi has admitted to “improper conduct in fuel consumption testing” of engines fitted to a total of 625,000 cars.
Your typical Hot Wheels car is 100 percent powered by imagination. But we’re at the point where you can cram a lot of technology into a 1:64-scale toy car, which is what the creators of Pocket Racing have done to bring these tiny rides to life as they interact with a new iPad game.
At first glance, the last thing you’d assume was that Magnus Walker was a prolific Porsche builder and tuner. Muscle cars? Maybe. Porsches? Unlikely. But maybe that’s why he was the perfect choice to help Hot Wheels customize its new collection of classic 1:64-scale Porsches.
Distracted driving is a hazard up there with drinking and driving, but with a problem for cops: Snapchat scores can’t be determined by smelling someone’s breath. A solution proposed in draft New York legislation would solve that, using a roadside phone analyzer.
Self-driving cars, as popularized by the likes of Google and Tesla, are meant to be transportation bubbles that operate free of any human interference. But full autonomy isn’t the only option, and Toyota is investing in a system that would use computers as an aid to human drivers, not a replacement.
It’s not really not the ending that anyone expected for one of LA’s most bizarre police chases ever.

Last week, the autonomous racing series that is Roborace unveiled what its cars will look like. But now we also know what will control them: Nvidia’s liquid-cooled Drive PX 2 computers, which crunch through 24 trillion AI operations every single second.
Among the many different hazards Google’s cars have to handle on the road is one particularly annoying one: pedestrians acting like jerks when they see Google’s cute little machines in the wild.
The boundaries between technology and automotive sectors continue to blur, and now Toyota and Microsoft have announced that they’ll be working together to imbue cars with artificial intelligence that will, they promise, humanize the driving experience.
On the list of first-world problems, not being bothered to plug in your Tesla is very near the top. Luckily for lazy Model S owners, the Department of Energy is on it.
While the US is making slow but steady progress toward an autonomous future, China is fast-tracking plans to get self-driving vehicles on the road. And one of the chief forces behind this revolution is an engineer who recently worked at Google competitor Intel.
You might think you can dodge every speeding ticket with your dashboard radar detector, but you’d be surprised. Here’s how radar detectors actually work and why you’re probably better off just going the speed limit.
You know what’s hard? Trying to get anyone to say anything remotely critical about the Tesla Model 3. Everyone wants it to succeed because electric vehicles are good, and affordable electric vehicles are even better. But the Model 3 cannot be the hero for the US’s energy woes if we don’t fix a few serious problems…
Tesla unveiled the new Model 3 tonight, and it looks damn cool. But before anyone had seen one lone hubcap, Tesla had already raked in $115 million in pre-order deposits, thanks to 115,000 people pre-ordering the Model 3.
