What Is Audi Traffic Light Information? This Short Video Explains How It Works

When we see a red light in the distance, we usually let up on the gas. We try to “time it just right,” so we don’t stop. Sometimes we get lucky, and we can keep moving as the light turns green. But sometimes, we still get stuck at the light (and worse if it’s only for a few seconds!). Imagine if your vehicle could tell you how long before a light changes color. What if your car gave you a recommended speed to drive when you see a red light, so you were more likely to arrive at the intersectio...

Nemesis: A Sol Invictus scrambler Built to tackle Tasmania

Factory-made modern classics are everywhere these days, but they’re usually premium motorcycles at the upper end of the engine size scale. If you’re looking for a low budget, small capacity bike with retro style, your options are fewer. Unless you live in Australia. Down under, you can get a Sol Invictus Nemesis 400 Scrambler for AU$5,999—less than half the price of a Triumph Street Twin. Granted, it’s a far more basic bike: an air-cooled, carbureted single that makes an honest 27 hp and is m...

Autonowashing and the dangers of putting too much trust in ‘self-driving’ cars

The first truly autonomous self-driving car will no doubt be one of the most historic technical achievements of our generation, but it seems we’re still a long way off because contemporary technology doesn’t yet fulfill the promise of keeping use safe 100% of the time. However, this isn’t stopping some automakers from talking as if we’re already there, and that behavior is creating new challenges. Numerous automakers already present their driving tech as being capable of Full Self-Driving. The r...

Royal Enfield’s May Sales Look Better Than April Sales But They’re Still Low
