16UK to begin testing driverless cars in bid to ease congestion

Google, Stanford University, and a few other institutions have been testing driverless cars on American roads for some time now. Soon, though, the autonomous vehicle will go across the pond for their first tests on the wrong side of public roads.

AddAudi Pits Old Spock Against New Spock In Ad Featuring S7, Autonomous TT [VIDEO]

Here at TRANSLOGIC we don't normally post about ads, but the new Star Trek inspired campaign from Audi has everyone around here talking...and laughing. Titled "The Challenge", it features Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy (new and old Spock, respectively) battling to see who can get to the golf course first, with the loser buying lunch. Hilarity, and a number of Star Trek and other geeky jokes, ensue.

5Road & Track archives donated to Stanford Revs Program

In the latest example of awesomeness from the Stanford Revs Program, Hearst Publishing is transferring the entire archives of Road & Track magazine to the Palo Alto, California campus for preservation. The program aims to create a researchable catalog of automotive history, and the archives are just the latest step in that effort. Road & Track dates back to 1947, and the combined archives filled 527 boxes weighing in at a total of 10,000 pounds. It took two trucks to ship the archives to

Volkswagen also already has a technology research facility in Palo Alto. The university and automaker are now opening a new Volkswagen Automotive Innovation Lab on campus as part of the school of engineering and calling it the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford, or CARS.

3Googlebots to hit the road with Stanford sensing technology

Google began the latest online mapping craze a couple of years ago when it kicked old school stalwart Mapquest to the curb. Since then Microsoft and Yahoo have jumped into the fray and the gang from Redmond has made a lot of progress with 3-D visualizations of its maps. Google has added features to its maps, but it has largely relied on users to submit 3-D models of buildings using a program called Sketch-Up to supplement its aerial maps.

4PBS goes NOVA on VW's autonomous Touareg

Since ESPN passed on airing the DARPA Grand Challenge in its entirety last October, we’re grateful that PBS is picking up the slack. The esoterically excellent NOVA program will air “The Great Robot Race” tonight on PBS at 8PM EST, in which the winning VW Touareg named “Stanley” fielded by Stanford University will be showcased along with technological innovations from the other 22 contenders it creamed on its way to the crown.
