Safety is extremely important for bike riders, especially with the number of bike related accidents that happen every year. Granted, according to the NHTSA, that number seems to be decreasing, but that doesn’t mean that we should stop trying to be safe drivers on the road, and also cyclists should always try to keep themselves protected at all times.
As electric cars become more common, there will also become a growing need for more EV chargers. Unfortunately, as it stands, EV chargers simply aren’t quite as common or ubiquitous compared to gas stations, but there has been work by companies to try and get more of them out there.
Let’s say a family member gave you their old laptop or computer and did not bother wiping or formatting it. On the computer, there are a bunch of software and services that belonged to the previous owner. Would you, legally, have the right to use that software and services even though you did not buy them?
We’ve all been there and we’ve all experienced the frustration of being stuck behind a slow driver, a traffic jam, or drivers who are too distracted to move when the traffic light turns green. Many of us have also been guilty of honking on our horns whenever we find ourselves in these situations.
Being able to remotely unlock your car using your smartphone isn’t new. We’ve seen this tech used by carmakers such as Hyundai, but now it looks like Apple is interested in creating something of their own, at least that’s what’s being hinted at in the recent release of iOS 13.4 beta.
It has been nearly a decade since the last Hummer was rolled off the production line. For those who love the truck and wouldn’t mind seeing a modern revival of it, you could be in luck because GMC recently posted a teaser on its website where they are hinting that the Hummer will be revived.
When it comes to stealing car parts, the wheels are probably one of the easier and more accessible parts that can be stolen, especially the rims which can either be resold or smelted down to be used for something else. However, it seems that Ford might be working on a way to try and prevent that from happening by using 3D printing.
As a delivery and logistics company, UPS has been rather aggressive in finding new high-tech ways of staying ahead of the competition. The company has explored the possibility of using drones to help make deliveries, and now it seems that they are looking at the possibility of self-driving delivery vans.
The license plates of our cars are pretty standard in terms of their design, and they are basically used to identify individual cars. In terms of customization, there is the option of purchasing a vanity plate, but even then, they’re still pretty much consisted of letters and numbers, but that could soon change if you live in Vermont.
Boeing did not have a particularly good 2019 due to a flaw in the system that pretty much grounded all of the company’s 737 planes. However, it seems that the company is still forging ahead with its developments and more recently, it looks like Boeing has successfully tested what could be the world’s largest twin-engine jet.
Right now when it comes to self-driving vehicles, one of the general rules that many follow around the world is that there needs to be a human behind the “wheel”. This is because in the event that something goes wrong, the human can take over and steer the car away or apply the brakes to prevent accidents.
A lot of carmakers these days are creating electric cars or hybrids at the very least. This is because as the world starts to run out of fossil fuels, creating cars that don’t require them makes a lot of sense. In fact, Japanese carmaker Subaru has announced that by the mid 2030s, they plan to sell only electric cars.
Recently there was a report, or rather, a petition in which it asked the NHTSA to investigate Tesla over multiple reports of cars suddenly accelerating forwards by themselves. If true, this would be incredibly alarming as it could lead to all manner of accidents, and in worst case scenarios, even death.
Update – Tesla has since refuted the claims with a post on their website.Modern cars have definitely gotten a lot smarter compared to cars back in the day, where they are now equipped with computers and sensors that are supposed to make the driving experience better. However, sometimes the addition of technology can make things worse and more complicated.
