Auto Safety Feature of the Near Future: Airbags on the Outside of Cars

In World War II, tank crews would cover their vehicles in sandbags, logs and even concrete. None of these add-ons would completely stop or deflect an incoming shell, but the idea was that the more material you have to soak up an impact, the less the explosive force would penetrate into the cabin. This principle would also be useful, if impractical, during collisions between civilian cars. And a German auto supplier called ZF Friedrichshafen AG believes they've found a way to make it p...

Volvo's Longest Drive game took nearly 10 hours to pass

No matter how much you like Volvos, it takes dedication to win one by staring at a smartphone screen for hours. The eye-control game kept the player looking at their mobile device, which could suss out if their attention and gaze wandered away, resetting the clock. To make sure there were big enough stakes, the mobile game went live during Super Bowl 53 – and the Volvo-winning play was far longer than the second and third places, which both passed the 7.5-hour mark.

A self-driving car expert describes the biggest problem with semi-autonomous driving systems like Tesla's Autopilot and Cadillac's Super Cruise

Semi-autonomous driving systems like Tesla's Autopilot and Cadillac's Super Cruise are designed to reduce the stress of driving by automating tasks like steering, accelerating, and braking under certain circumstances, but the driver needs to be ready to take over at any moment. Those systems rely on unrealistic expectations about how well humans are able to pay attention to the road and quickly react if the semi-autonomous system needs them to take control, Mary Cummings, a professor at Duke w...

Best places to visit in Sweden

Everyone knows Stockholm is full of cool things to do: the archipelago, the scenic Old Town, the Baroque-style Royal Palace — even the subway stations could keep you entertained for a very long visit.

From hip second cities to interesting lodges to gorgeous hiking trails, here are the best places to visit outside Stockholm. 1. Gothenburg (Göteborg) Photo: anderm/Shutterstock ...

Waymo Met With More Than 12 Carmakers in 2016 on Driverless Tech

The memo, marked "highly confidential," was written on Aug. 18, 2016, the day Bloomberg reported that Uber Technologies Inc. was partnering with Volvo and had acquired driverless car startup Otto, a deal that triggered a bitter legal battle between Waymo and the ride-sharing giant. Waymo tried to reassure staff in the document after the news. Otto was co-founded by a former Google executive Anthony Levandowski, and Volvo was a potential partner that could manufacture cars -- something Waymo di...

Volvo creates the living seawall in Sydney to help with plastic pollution

With ocean habitats being degraded by plastic pollution and replaced with seawalls, more than half of the shoreline in Sydney, Australia, is now artificial. Scientists say that the amount of plastic waste in the ocean is so massive, removing it all simply isn’t possible. So, instead of hosting more beach clean-ups or tearing down seawalls, Volvo is taking a more modern, creative approach to the problem — a Living Seawall. Volvo has teamed up with the Sydney Institute of Marine Science and Reef ...

This Week in Photography Books: Douglas Ljungkvist

  For whatever reason, I’ve never been to Sweden. (Though I’m sure it’s a lovely place.)

(Yes, he beat me too.) Something tells me, though, there’s more to Scandinavia than hippies and board games. I may not have been to Sweden, it’s true, but my neighbors down the stree...

2019 Volvo XC40 T4 Review – The Crossover That Made Me Love Crossovers

I get it. No real enthusiast should like crossovers. They’re tall, handle poorly, slurp gas, and aren’t as space efficient as the cars upon which they’re based. They aren’t a true sport-utility vehicles, either, as their on road-focused designs can’t handle rough terrain. I used to be like you. I’m a car lover, and always […] The post 2019 Volvo XC40 T4 Review – The Crossover That Made Me Love Crossovers appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

'I'm an apocalypse writer': Bradford Cox of Deerhunter, the asexual rock star for end times

So why is the Atlantan indie rocker writing about the killing of Jo Cox and the end of the world?The door to Bradford Cox’s wood-framed house is unlocked, so I wander in. Set in a leafy bit of Atlanta, it is the kind of place that would make Marie Kondo freak out, with the entire contents of Cox’s brain seemingly emptied on to its handsome wooden furniture: a topography of shells, tools, vials and...
