Happy 100th Birthday, BMW!

For a centenarian, BMW looks awfully good for its age. Today, the German automaker celebrated 100 years of fortitude by hosting a Centenary Event at the company’s home base of Munich. With one eye looking back at a century marked by successes and setbacks, BMW also looked ahead toward another 100 years by introducing the BMW Vision Next 100 (pictured), a trailblazing concept car that represents th

NHTSA: Google AI Is Like People

Anyone remember A.I. Artificial Intelligence? Don’t feel too bad if you don’t: it was a kinda mediocre Spielberg flick starring the kid from The Sixth Sense as an android designed to feel human emotions. While the AI in a Google car (pictured) can’t necessary replicate the emotional range of a master thespian like Haley Joel Osment, it can do something that the actor couldn’t do back then: legally

Robot Army Trucks Ride Through Michigan

The Transformers movies were by no means cinematic masterpieces, but give them credit for their unflinching depiction of the oncoming robotic menace. If the evil Decepticons ever come to invade Earth, we should be so lucky to have a robot army work in concert with the U.S. military to defend us. Of course, the Transformers have the distinct disadvantage of not being real…but the robot army part co

Google’s Self-Driving Vehicles on the Fast Road to Progress

We all know Google for its ubiquitous search engine, but there will come a day when the world also knows it for its self-driving vehicles. In the six years since it began its Self-Driving Car Project, Google’s self-driving vehicles (pictured) have logged over 1.4 autonomous miles across America’s roads. Currently, Google is road-testing 55 of its self-driving vehicles on the streets of Mountain Vi

Who’s to Blame for Self-Driving Vehicle Crashes?

In a previous Auto Publishers article, I made the case that self-driving vehicle technology is far more advanced than the public imagines. Indeed, the argument can be made that these vehicles are better at driving than humans. Where self-driving vehicles like the Google Car (pictured) often fall short is their strict adherence to the rules of the road. While it may sound counterintuitive, the bigg

Google’s Next Innovation: Talking Self-Driving Vehicles

We here at Auto Publishers pride ourselves at staying ahead of the latest trends affecting the automotive world. One of the points we’ve been consistent about is that a future with self-driving vehicles in it will soon be upon us. While that may sound awesome in the abstract (or perhaps scary, depending on your point of view), there are still plenty of legal issues to be worked out, to say nothing

Artists Google Doodle on Self-Driving Cars

If you’re like me, one of the first things you look forward to seeing when you log onto your computer is the Google Doodle for that day. Google Doodles are used to commemorate holidays, notable events and famous people—and now, local artists are using them to celebrate their communities as part of Google’s Paint the Town contest for its Self-Driving Car Project. As it is headquartered in Mountain

Volkswagen Snags Self-Driving Vehicles Guru from Apple

Time for a quick recap on everyone’s favorite scandal-scarred automaker… Jungwirth Jumps to VW From a career perspective, going from Apple to Volkswagen these days is a bit like going from Club Med to the Titanic. But that’s what Johann Jungwirth (pictured, right) has elected to do in taking a position with VW in its newly created department devoted to self-driving vehicles. Jungwirth is moving
