On The Road To The Self-Driving Car

http://onpoint.wbur.org/2014/02/05/self-driving-cars-google-x-computers No more dumb cars, the Federal government decreed this week. Or at least, no mute cars. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Monday it will soon require all new cars to talk to one another. Share location, speed, direction and more, electronically. Vehicle-to-vehicle – “V2V” – communication. Right behind that comes the next frontier: self-driving cars. First they talk to one another, next they drive themselves. The auto industry, Google, and the law are all gearing up. Guests Tom Costello, correspondent for NBC News. (@tomcostellonbc) Burkhard Bilger, science, nature and technology staff writer at The New Yorker. Bryant Walker Smith, fellow at the Center for Internet and Society and the Center for Automatice Research at Stanford Law School and Stanford University. Lecturer in law.

The car industry - Rear Vision - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Governments everywhere are confronting the collapse of the global automobile market in different ways, with loans, bailouts and sometimes cold rejection. Rear Vision looks at the history of the car industry in Australia, which has always relied on government support, and in the United States, where the Obama administration is trying to work out whether more government aid could make its car companies viable. http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/rearvision/the-car-industry/3148330

By Design - 2011-01-05 - Chris Bangle

Chris Bangle: global car designer and ideas agitator Do you know this name, Chris Bangle? Car enthusiasts in the By Design audience will know him, in the world of car design he's a star, but all of you know his work. Trends and Products: Pixel building - the greenest in Australia The Pixel building, as it is known, is the new Melbourne city headquarters for the developers Grocon - known for many of Australia´s major buildings. Eureka building on Melbourne´s Southbank is one of their most prominent. This is considered one of the tallest buildings in Australia. The Pixel building, though, is small, and an experiment in all things green. The building´s architects Studio 505 are one of Australia´s most innovative and thoughtful firms, with the co-founder Dylan Brady coming out of LAB Architecture, the firm that designed Melbourne's Federation Square. Wallpaper: an on-again, off-again love affair On his deathbed in a Paris hotel room, Oscar Wilde famously quipped: 'My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One or the other of us has to go.' In Australia, since the 1840s, fashions in wallpaper have come and gone in Australia during our long, on-off love affair with wallpaper. When the Lights Went Out: a history of blackouts in America Where were you when the lights went out? For whatever reason they went out, you´ll probably remember where you were when it happened because our electrically lit-up life has become so natural to us that when the lights go off, the darkness seems abnormal and memorable.
