MARTY (Multiple Actuator Research Test bed for Yaw control) is a self-driving DeLorean created by Stanford's Revs Center as an homage to the Back to the Future film series.


A Stanford University professor behind the autonomous Audi racer is now doing real-world experiments to examine vital ethics questions.


We, For One, Welcome Our New Robot Overlords

Toyota is dedicating itself to research into artificial intelligence, announcing a partnership with MIT and Stanford University.


QuantumScape Batteries May Provide More Than 400 Miles Of Range

Volkswagen looks to US-based solid-state battery maker for potential boost in electric-vehicle range.


The autonomous Audi TTS developed by engineers from Stanford University recently went to Thunderhill Raceway to lap the track without a driver inside. It also turned a faster lap than an amateur racing driver.


Are you a fan of vintage racing, or just old cars in general, and can't find enough classic pictures online to feed your habit? Then we have found the perfect site for you. Stanford University has opened its Revs Digital Library online – a wonderfully curated and cited page of automobilia that already includes nearly 200,000 images spanning most of the history of the car.


Ask any car engineer what's the biggest variable in achieving fuel economy targets, and he'll tell you "the driver." If one human can't understand human driving behavior enough to be certain about an innocuous number like miles per gallon, how is an autonomous car supposed to figure out what hundreds of other drivers are going to do in the course of a day? Ford has enlisted the help of Stanford and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to find out.


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.


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


Readers of a certain age may remember the 1982 hit "Electric Avenue" by Eddy Grant. Now, Stanford University is putting its own spin on the concept.


Honda expanded the demonstration program it started for its Fit electric vehicles late last month by sending two more EVs to Google and Stanford University.


Stanford has taken to playing with vintage Porsche racers as part of the institution's research on the interaction between driver and vehicle. By swaddling a 1960 Porsche Abarth Carrera in GPS antennae, motion sensors and laser measuring equipment to monitor the vehicle's suspension geometry, distance from the road surface and well as the position of the steering wheel, Stanford scientists are collecting a massive amount of data about how a non-computer assisted vehicle handles at the edge of co


You may think you know cars, but a new program at Stanford may enlighten you on a whole new level. The "Revs" program, which is taught by Stanford Communications Professor Clifford Nass, links the school's engineering program with its design program.


When you bring together two universities known for their expertise in future transportation technologies and combine them with company leaders and pioneers in the green vehicle industry, you end up with a lot of knowledgeable people packed into a single room at an event called the Cleantech Conference. An event of this magnitude, focusing almost entirely on electric vehicles, is a relatively rare occurrence that should not be missed. Sadly, we'll be missing it.

Forget, for a moment, the difference between standard, corn-based ethanol and cellulosic ethanol. For this post, all that matters is how ethanol burns, not how it's created.
