The British Government has just committed almost $30 million to develop various facets of autonomous car tech, a chunk of which Bosch and Jaguar Land Rover are getting to develop self-driving cars that actually “drive like humans, not robots.”
Evo’s latest video demonstrates that owning one of the six new-old Jaguar E-Type Lightweight Coupes means you get all the fun without having to get as dirty as you would in 1964. That’s a good thing.
There is a new trailer for SPECTRE, the upcoming Bond film, and it seems the quartermaster has been very busy arranging all sorts of vehicles for scenes from Mexico to Morocco, including planes, trains, and (mostly British) automobiles. Here is a handy breakdown with plenty of pretty pictures.
In the not-too-distant future, eye-tracking technology will be a run-of-the-mill feature in many high-end vehicles, helping keep drivers’ eyes on the road. But Jaguar Land Rover has patented another use for the tech that allows cars to automatically trigger the rear window’s wiper so it’s always clean and clear when…
Jaguar Land Rover says they are developing a 360 Virtual Urban Windscreen that "will allow drivers to get a complete, unhindered view of the road." I can't wait for this to be real and standard in every car, although it's probably still a long time away. The best feature: Follow Me Ghost Car navigation.
I would love to use this Jaguar augmented reality windscreen. It's like turning your entire driving experience into a video game (I don't know if that is a good idea or not but it sure looks like fun.)
AMD has been going head-to-head with Intel in the PC market for years, so it's no surprise that they will be hot on Intel's heels in the mobile space, too. Yep, they have plans to design tablet CPUs. It's like two gorillas shrinking themselves to do battle in your pocket.
Bad news, child pornographers: you're now being hunted by a supercomputer. Over the course of the next year, one million processing hours on Jaguar, Oak Ridge Labs' 1.8 petaflop supercomputer, will be dedicated to ferreting out child porn's loathsome producers.
For a relatively low number of American dollars, you can own your own Atari TT 030 computer, used by testers to work on the Jaguar title Aliens vs. Predator and—according to the weird file show here—shenanigans. [eBay]
This is Jaguar, the new King of the Petaputer Hill, running at 1.75 petaflops-per-second. The Cray XT5 supercomputer was behind IBM's Roadrunnner for more than a year, until some clever scientist decided to paint a running Jaguar all over it.
My buddy Todd at TechFlash reports that Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer went on an anti-Apple rant yesterday in NYC, saying "the tide has really turned back" toward Microsoft products, adding "The [downturned] economy is helpful."
Driving would be way more fun if we didn't have to worry about the whole gas and brake thing, right? Sentience understands this, and their intelligent cruise control means you can finally forget about it.
According to Ian Callum, Jaguar's design director, the revised XF shall boast a reworked control interface—reworked by Apple, no less. In an interview with CAR magazine, Mr Callum said, "We have been working with Apple on control interfaces." Assuming Mr. Callum did not forget to add "an" before "Apple" in that…
