Is Your City’s Transportation Network Vulnerable to a Cyberattack?

It seems like you can’t go a day without seeing another headline related to a dramatic cybersecurity breach. You may even feel desensitized to them, taking the “that will never happen to me” mentality. But the truth is, it can happen to anyone, anywhere at anytime. In fact,  there are 1.46 billion data breaches each month, on average. As the internet of things (IoT) moves from theoretical to reality, we need to think beyond virtual identity theft and shift our attention toward much larger...

Hyundai and Kia Invest In … Rimac?

In today’s episode of Surprising Bedfellows, we find the corporate duo of Hyundai/Kia throwing money in the general direction of Rimac.

Watch: How traffic light programming helps manage congestion

From Practical Engineering: Traffic management in dense urban areas is an extremely complex problem with a host of conflicting goals and challenges. One of the most fundamental of those challenges happens at an intersection, where multiple streams of traffic - including vehicles, bikes and pedestrians - need to safely, and with any luck, efficiently, cross each others’ paths. However we accommodate it now or in future, traffic will continue to be one of the biggest challenges in our urban a...

Musk’s new lawyer fights ‘pedo guy’ defamation lawsuit claims, questions motive

SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s lawyer argued Tuesday in a court filing that the British cave diver who became embroiled in a public spat with his client and later sued for defamation can’t recover damages because his reputation was not harmed.

Grey Goose: A Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport from San Francisco

One of the wonderful things about customization is that it can breathe new life into otherwise unloved motorcycles. Need proof? Just look at the number of amazing Honda CX500s and Yamaha Viragos on the scene. This Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport is another poster child for realized potential. The original wasn’t the ugliest or slowest bike Moto Guzzi ever made, but despite having 90 horsepower on tap, it was porky and not very exciting. MCN was particularly harsh; “Track days often end in tears,” they ...

2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 First Drive – We All Need a Hero

Somehow, while I wasn’t looking, the box office has become dominated by movies featuring superheroes.

Honda Patents Single-Cylinder Motorcycle With Drum Brakes

A Super Affordable Model? Honda does some weird things sometimes. Lately, the company has had numerous patents for high-tech applications for motorcycles and gear, but now it seems the company is truly going back to basics. It just patented a design that has what looks like a small single cylinder engine and drum brakes.  First spotted by RideApart, the design looks like a super simple one. The choice to include drum brakes is especially odd to me. Disc brakes work far better and can’t be that ...
