BMW is testing its Remote Valet Parking system, using its i3 research vehicle

Trawling a multi-story car-park and then squeezing into a parking space can be a painstaking task. It would be much better if you could just drive into a car-park and leave your vehicle to do the rest. Well, that's exactly what BMW says its Remote Valet Parking system will let you do.  Read More

The Budii concept will debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show

Times are good for Swiss automotive think tank Rinspeed. After years of coming up with fun but improbable automotive novelty concepts like the sQuba diver and iChange shape shifter, Rinspeed is now able to focus on designs that might actually have an impact on an automotive market that's in a state of technological acceleration. Earlier this year, it took us inside the autonomous car with the XchangE, and next year it plans to show us how that car will be more than just a means of transportation. It'll be your best Budii.  Read More

The SeaBED AUV mapping a previously-inaccessible area under the Antarctic sea ice (Photo: ...

Antarctic scientists have combined measurements provided by an underwater robot with existing satellite data to show that Antarctic sea ice may be thicker than previously thought. Their first-of-a-kind high-resolution 3D maps cover over 500,000 square meters in the Weddell, Bellingshausen, and Wilkes Land sectors of Antarctica, and they reveal heavy deformation in all three near-coastal regions that produces mean sea-ice draft (thickness of the submerged part of the ice) far in excess of ice drilling and ship-based measurements. This is a big leap forward in our ability to understand why and how the ice is changing on both small and large scales.  Read More

It wasn't so long ago that self-driving cars were seen as the stuff of some distant sci-fi future. All of a sudden, that future is upon us, but we don't yet know what these cars will look like.

A driverless Audi RS7 will lap Hockenheim on October 19

Two years ago, the idea of driverless cars on our roads seemed crazy to many people. Today, the technology is being built into our cars, and a driverless Audi RS7 is set to lap Hockenheim at the same pace as a professional racing driver.

Tesla finally took the wraps off its much rumored Model D at Hawthorn Airport outside of Los Angeles tonight and the results look impressive to say the least.

It will also feature new driver-assist systems including an auto-pilot solution for self-parking.  Read More

DHL's Parcelcopter can carry up to 1.2 kg (2.6 lb) of medication

Although big players such as Amazon, Google and the United Arab Emirates have all announced plans to launch drone-based delivery services, it looks like DHL Parcel is about to beat them to it. This week, the courier company announced that it will begin using its unmanned DHL Parcelcopter to deliver pharmaceuticals from the German seaside village of Norddeich, across 12 km (7.5 miles) of the North Sea, to the small island of Juist.  Read More

Driverless cars are accelerating towards reality, with plans for UK tests next year, Audi being issued California's first autonomous driving permit and Elon Musk claiming that the technology is just five to six years from maturity. All this begs the question, what will driverless cars look like? If artist Dominic Wilcox has any say in the matter, they will look like mini cathedrals.  Read More

Audi has announced that it will be the first auto manufacturer to receive an autonomous driving permit from the State of California. The new autonomous vehicle laws that went into effect yesterday require the German automaker to submit a surety of bond of at least US$5 million per vehicle in order to qualify.  Read More
