This new radar lets cars see around corners

Researchers at a US university have developed a new kind of radar which — when equipped with some AI wizardry — can help cars see round corners. Princeton university engineers have created a type of Doppler radar, typically used to catch speeding cars, that bounces radio waves off stationary objects to effectively “see” around corners. Coupled with algorithms that interpret how the radiowaves reflect off secondary objects, the radar can interpret moving objects that are out of human view. It kin...

As Burger King in the US is giving away free burgers to irresponsible Tesla drivers, on the other side of the Atlantic, McDonald’s UK is rolling out EV fast-chargers at its restaurants. The UK arm of the fast-food chain is reportedly installing hundreds of EV chargers at its locations around the country after agreeing a partnership with infrastructure provider, InstaVolt, the Independent reports.

Boozy Drivers Hold Impromptu Slumber Party in Detroit-area Drive-thru

It seems a rowdy (or perhaps lonely) Valentine’s Day evening turned into a somnambulant early morning in Troy, Michigan, where police responded to a report of more than one driver asleep in a McDonald’s drive-thru lane at the same time. If you’ve ever found yourself stuck behind a solitary crossover or minivan in which every last […] The post Boozy Drivers Hold Impromptu Slumber Party in Detroit-area Drive-thru appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Last Day of T-Dubing in the Barry Goldwater Air Force Range

Today was my last day of camping for January, headed for Phoenix tomorrow to put the URRV into storage for about a month while I fly home to get some chores done, report for jury duty and get my hearing aids from the VA.I thought I would check out the Hazard Area (in pink) shown in the range map below, as I had confirmed there were no active ranges in operation today with Range Security. The plan was to take Trail 601 to 602 from Gate 5 and then see how close I could get to the Hazard Area's ea...

Letter From The UK: Travelling In Great Britain

One of the few benefits of living in the UK is that, being a relatively small island nation, nothing is that far away. At a push, a healthy alert driver could go end to end in well under twenty-four hours. This means our diverse and varied countryside, regions, historic towns, and teeming cities are pretty much accessible to all. If you like to travel and see places and things, then it’s all here in a neat package tied up with string. God’s Country The UK contrasts hugely with the USA. This w...

Say It Ain’t So! Docs Suggest Chevrolet Cruze Losing Manual Transmission

After a year of good news (McDonald’s all-day breakfast came to Canada), it seems only fitting that 2017 will end in tears.

Road tripping in the 2017 Nissan Versa Note

When most people think of a great road trip vehicle, they have visions of a fancy grand touring car, or maybe a luxurious sedan. We aren’t like most people. For us, the perfect road trip vehicle is a car that is light, nimble and fun to drive, has lots of space for our stuff and whatever junk we might accumulate along the way and gets great fuel economy. If it can catch the interest of some onlookers along the way, that is even better. With our event season about to go crazy, Mrs. G and I deci...

How a Government Tire Recycling Program Opened the Door to Sleaze

The dealer viewpoint

  As my friends know I have been in the retail car business since 1984. I have been fortunate enough to be able to make a living at it and the car business has been my career, allowing me to play in my hobby so to speak. So after 33 years of doing this and doing jobs from salesman, service advisor, parts sales even cleaning cars I thought I would talk about some of the experiences and falsehoods that we still run into today. My first topic will be new car pricing, or further explaining what dea...
