This robot will park your car for you as you rush to the airport

We may not be near having artificial intelligence drive our cars, but we’re living in an age where robots and AI will park our cars for us. An airport in Lyon, France is debuting a robot designed by Stanley Robotics, which will latch onto your car and park it for you as you rush to board your flight. Given that parking your car on a tight schedule can often result in a loss of precious minutes, the Lyon Airport is relying on an army of car-parking bots that gently carry your car to the nearest v...

The Investments Cisco, Samsung, Toyota, and Chevron Are Making in AI

Austin—If you’re a startup talking up your artificial intelligence chops in your venture capital pitch, you’re not alone.For Cisco Investments, the venture arm of tech giant Cisco, artificial intelligence is no longer one of the key trends to watch for during pitches in 2019.

Part of the issue is saturation, he said.“Our view is that we’re sort of at peak oil for A...

The Macchina Volantis can drive on roads and fly in the skies!

You don’t need a licence to drive the Citroën Ami One

Citroën seems to have it the nail on the head by calling its Ami One a ‘disruptive all-electric object’, and not a car. Barely 2.5 meters long, the Ami One stems from an idea that traveling is an activity, and a car should only be as permanent as the need of that activity. The video above makes a pretty bold claim by saying that YOU choose how long you want (to rent) your car. Five minutes, five hours, five days…months , or even five years. This sounds like a gimmick, but think about the fact ...

Coyotes Weekly: A Powerless Power Play

Last week, we touched on how important it would be for the Arizona Coyotes to get off to a good start in the second half of the season if they had serious aspirations of making a run at a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Well, after a 0-2-1 road trip in the first week of play following the All-Star Break, it’s safe to say things aren’t off to a great start.

Dealing with Hit and Run Accident

In October, I realized that the kids were getting too big for the car we had. Literally every time we were in the car, Charlie’s knees were in my back.

EVs and online marketplaces thrive despite slump in Chinese car sales

China’s massive auto market hit the brakes last year as trade tensions and a softening economy dampened consumer confidence, but one segment soared on account of increasing internet penetration — used car sales. New passenger car sales fell to 23.7 million last year, representing a 4.1 year-over-year drop according to a new report by China’s Association of Automobile Manufacturers, the country’s top auto association.
