Self-driving cars have accidents, too — but humans are to blame

Self-driving cars have accidents, too — but humans are to blame

Autonomous cars have many excited, and enough worried about their safety. In a new blog post, Google’s self-driving car lead, Chris Urmson, says while the autonomous vehicles do suffer the occasional fender-bender, it’s not their fault. Those accidents also aren’t much more than paint-swapping incidents; 11 accidents with no injuries to passengers in the car and light damage to the vehicle. Urmson also says none of the accidents autonomous cars were involved in can be attributed to the tech inside.

Musk: Tesla isn’t losing engineers to Apple (it’s the opposite!)

Earlier this year, rumors surfaced Apple was working on some sort of automotive project. Some believed it was an autonomous car; others felt it was more CarPlay related than anything else. While those rumors have (mostly) subsided, the idea is still there. Part of the rumor mill involved Tesla losing bunches of engineers to Apple, conjuring tales of a troubled Tesla. Speaking after Tesla’s earnings report yesterday, CEO Elon Musk said his company hasn’t lost many employees to Apple at all. In fact, they’re the ones taking Apple employees away from Cupertino.

3D printed iconic Shelby Cobra is all electric under the hood

3D printed iconic Shelby Cobra is all electric under the hood

We've seen some 3D-printed cars evolve from rough, inexpensive designs to dreamy, printed concept cars. In honor of the iconic Shelby Cobra's 50th anniversary, the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory 3D-printed an electric Shelby Cobra. The vehicle's whole body and chassis, even interior details like the headrests, were 3D-printed from lightweight, reinforced ABS. To give the cobra a modern twist, they gave the car a non-printed, electric engine. The DoE created the car, from design inception to final production, in six weeks.
