Over the last few years, there's been growing evidence for a huge, ninth planet lurking on the very edges of the Solar System. The dwarf planets and other icy bodies out there move in mysterious ways that suggest an unseen world is pulling on them, but new calculations suggest that there is no Planet Nine – these distant objects might just be jostling each other like bumper cars...

The Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este 2018 has been a significant annual event in Italy for 91 years. For a large part of that 91 years, it has been the home of automotive passion in the most passionate automotive country, particularly so since public events such as the Mille Miglia (a 1000 mile race on public roads) were abandoned due to the dangers. Automobiles are about many things, but
toyota is backing the project alongside the office of naval research which allows for aggressive lane changes. The post MIT trains self-driving cars to change lanes like human drivers do appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
using GPS data and sensors, maplite lets AV's navigate roads which might not have accurate 3D mapping or any mapping at all. The post MIT project lets driverless cars navigate rural roads without prior mapping appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
When a motorist enters an overpass that runs parallel to a ground-level road, it's possible that their GPS navigation system will think that they're still on the lower road. As a result, the system will issue incorrect instructions. A new system created at the University of Hong Kong is designed to keep that from happening...

Autonomous cars could prove to be splendid news for parking, according to new research from the University of Toronto. Because self-driving cars can park themselves, you can get out beforehand. Since you don't need to open the door once parked you can cram many more cars in. But according to the researchers, if autonomous cars work together, even more space can be saved – though perhaps not s
The state of Arizona has acted decisively following the fatal accident involving a self-driving Uber and a pedestrian last week.
