Autonomous Vehicle Technology: A Guide for Policymakers

For the past hundred years, innovation within the automotive sector has created safer, cleaner, and more affordable vehicles, but progress has been incremental. The industry now appears close to substantial change, engendered by autonomous, or “self-driving,” vehicle technologies. This technology offers the possibility of significant benefits to social welfare — saving lives; reducing crashes, congestion, fuel consumption, and pollution; increasing mobility for the disabled; and ultimately improving land use. This report is intended as a guide for state and federal policymakers on the many issues that this technology raises. After surveying the advantages and disadvantages of the technology, RAND researchers determined that the benefits of the technology likely outweigh the disadvantages. However, many of the benefits will accrue to parties other than the technology’s purchasers. These positive externalities may justify some form of subsidy. The report also explores policy issues, communications, regulation and standards, and liability issues raised by the

Bicycle Technology | The Franklin Institute

The late 1800s ushered in a huge bicycle boom, and people began to experiment with bicycle shapes and styles to suit the varying needs of the rider. Will this bicycle be used for racing or for recreation? How fast will the rider want to go? How comfortable should the rider be while riding? Is this bicycle safe to ride? These questions and much more led people to develop new technologies that would help evolve the bicycle from the high-wheel models seen in early pictures to some of the high-tech racing machines we have today.

In the last decade of the 19th century, at least one-third of all new patent applications at the U.S Patent Office were bicycle related. People focused the changes and improvements they made on what they thought bicycle riders wanted or required. Despite a varying degree of styles and models, four major focuses stood out from the

MIPS Helmet Technology: What It Is and Why You Need It | Blog

Until very recently, when a customer was shopping for a bike helmet at our store, we could confidently tell them, “Choose one that’s comfortable, lightweight, and well-ventilated; they all provide the same level of safety.” That’s because since 1999 U.S. law has required that all bicycle helmets sold in the United States meet the same standard, which is set by the CPSC, or Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The CPSC standard (you can view the entire thing online here) ensures that all bike helmets meet the following criteria:

  1. They do not block the rider’s vision.
  2. They do not come off when the rider falls, or during an accident.
  3. They significantly reduce the force to the rider’s head when the helmet hits a hard surface.

CPSC helmets really do work. When you wear a CPSC approved bike helmet, your chances of suffering a bike-related fatality or serious injury during a catastrophic impact

General Motors
has big electric-vehicle ambitions, and Wall Street appears to be impressed.

“GM comes out swinging against Tesla,” Wedbush analyst Dan Ives wrote in a Wednesday evening research report, following the company’s electric-vehicle technology presentation near Detroit earlier in the day.

Ives covers
Tesla
(ticker: TSLA) stock but not General Motors (GM). He was interested in what the state of EV technology is at a traditional auto maker that predominantly builds gasoline-powered vehicles. “We believe the event was a clear shot across the bow against [Elon] Musk and Tesla, which continues to lead the EV landscape by a clear margin.”

Even though Ives thinks Tesla is in the lead, he said Musk’s company has to take GM “seriously in this EV arms race.”

GM CEO Mary Barra said Wednesday that “from 2020 to 2025, we will allocate more
