Driver Safety Tips: Automatic Emergency Braking

Posted by Kyle Forbush on Jan 22, 2019 3:24:52 PM

Sticking with the theme of our last blog article about Adaptive Cruise Control, I will compare the intelligence of emerging auto technology to the proliferation of computer IQ in The Matrix. Many embrace the invention of cars that sense and even think for us to some extent, while others fear that it takes too much responsibility out of our own hands. And if the Matrix trilogy taught us anything, it is to avoid self-aware mechanisms.

Driver Safety Tips: Adaptive Cruise Control

Posted by Kyle Forbush on Jan 18, 2019 1:05:37 PM

I-Robot came out in 2004 and introduced its audiences to a dark vision of our future where cars drive themselves, robots are utilized by humans for nearly everything, and Lake Michigan has dried up. Luckily, we're nowhere near the latter two circumstances, but the first was already being realized when the film came out.

Another Surge in the Electric Vehicle Industry

Posted by Kyle Forbush on Jan 3, 2019 11:48:00 PM

The year is now 2019, and we live in an era of innovative technology that is generally designed to make our lives easier. The electric car, for example, can save a consumer hundreds of dollars a year on gas and maintenance. It is important to consider that EV’s are best used as short-range vehicles, but for someone with a short commute and casual trips around town, they can be ideal.

Because of their limited range, EV's aren't always feasible for those who have longer commutes or take road trips. Not to mention the fact that, up until recently, public charging stations were hard to find. This led most people to charge their Electric Vehicle’s at home, which can take up to 22 hours. The public DC Fast Charging Stations can charge your car in as little as fifteen minutes--while you’re grocery shopping, or sipping a latte.

Recently, an organization called Electrify America made a move to make charging stations more accessible to the public, installing a large number of their own DC Fast Charging Stations along highways and throughout six major metropolitan areas in California. The following article details the company’s large investment in a program designed to bolster the popularity and practicality of EV’s, as they lead the industry towards cost-efficient and eco-friendly alternatives to the traditional pump.

The Future of Driving is Here Today!

Posted by Kristina Kurzweil on Nov 23, 2015 10:40:00 AM

Operating a motorized vehicle in and of itself, is a huge responsibility. We have to be completely aware of our surroundings by checking three different mirrors all at once, using turn signals to change lanes, reading caution and directional road signs, checking to be sure there's enough fuel in the tank, that we stay within the speed limit, and the list goes on. Now, think about all we do beyond these normalities.  Are you ever running late for work and attempt to simultaneously make a phone call, eat breakfast, sip coffee, tie your tie, and drive all at once?  While performing these daily rituals we rarely stop to think about the dangers we're exposing ourselves to. Well, what if there was a way to safely and effectively drive while completing our side tasks?  The answer: Autonomous Cars!
