'It was perfect' -- Formula One great Alain Prost remembers his first car

2017-06-24 09:17:16 Mr Nas Karr

(CNN)Alain Prost is one of Formula One’s greatest racers.

Only two drivers in the history of the sport — German Michael Schumacher (7) and Argentine Juan Manuel Fangio (5) — have accumulated more world championship titles than the Frenchman’s four.
But before becoming a household name in the glamorous world of F1, Prost was driving an altogether more humble car.

      My First Car: Red Bull’s Max Verstappen

    “My first road car when I got a license was a Renault R4,” the 62-year-old former McLaren and Ferrari driver tells CNN.
    “But that was not my car, it was my parents’ car that I used sometimes.
    “The first car that I bought myself was an Opel Kadett — but a Kadett GT! You know, it was almost a rally car — yellow and black — and that was perfect.”
    Despite being called ‘le professeur’ and famed for skillfully maneuvering turns at breakneck speeds, Prost recalls a time when his cornering wasn’t quite so good.
    “I was 21,” he remembers with a grin. “That was the car I had been dreaming about — and that was the only car I crashed!
    “I slipped on the gravel going very slowly with a friend. I went down in a deep ditch. That was my first and only accident with a car.”

    Green light for UK driverless car road trials - BBC News

    A demonstration of driverless cars in Nuneaton will be followed later this year by trials on public roads.

    Autodrive – a collaboration between Jaguar Land Rover, Ford and Tata Motors – showed off how autonomous cars can talk to each other.

    It included warning drivers when an emergency vehicle was approaching and offering real-time traffic information.

    The first set of public road trials are due to take place in Milton Keynes and Coventry by the end of the year.

    A fleet of up to 40 self-driving pavement-based ‘pods’ will also be introduced in pedestrianised areas of Milton Keynes.

    Another aspect of the demo showed how connected cars can detect the presence of other connected cars on the approach to a junction and warn drivers if there is a high probability of a collision.

    “The successful completion of the proving ground trials marks a significant milestone for the project team, and we are now looking forward to demonstrating the benefits of these exciting new technologies in the real-world settings of Milton Keynes and Coventry,” said Tim Armitage, UK Autodrive project director.

    “Once the technology becomes widely available, we anticipate huge potential benefits in terms of road safety, improved traffic flow and general access to transport, so we’re really excited about being able to demonstrate this on real roads.”

    There are similar trials going on around the UK, including in Greenwich which is using similar pods to those planned for Milton Keynes.

    A consortium of British companies known as Driven are planning to test driverless cars on motorways in 2019.

    The UK government has paved the way for driverless cars, laying out a legislative framework in the Queen’s Speech which included plans to update car insurance so that driverless vehicles would be subject to the same rules as normal ones.

    The technology that allows cars to become more autonomous has been increasing in recent years with all the main manufacturers now offering some element of driverless technology, including self-parking features and cruise control on motorways.

    UK government research suggests that the market for automated vehicles in the UK will be worth 28bn by 2035.

    Say goodbye to Firefly, Google's quirky little self-driving car

    2017-06-14 09:22:21 Mr Nas Karr

    Waymo is putting the Firefly (above) out to pasture.

    Sad news, quirky car enthusiasts: Waymo is taking its fleet of tiny self-driving vehicles off the roads.

    The autonomous car company announced it will retire the Firefly, the round-topped two-seater that served as the most obvious visual marker of Google’s self-driving car efforts long before the Waymo brand was on the scene. The prototype was introduced to the public back in 2014, when it offered awe-struck Californians a first-hand look at the future of autonomous transportation.

    The Firefly, with its one-of-a-kind steering wheel and pedal-free design, was instrumental in the development of Google’s self-driving tech, logging millions of test miles rolling along at 25 mph.

    “By designing and building a truly self-driving vehicle from scratch, we were able to crack some of the earliest self-driving puzzleswhere to place the sensors, how to integrate the computer, what controls passengers need in a car that drives itself,” the Waymo team wrote in the blog post commemorating the Firefly’s retirement.

    But with Waymo’s rapid advancements since spinning out from Google last year and major innovations in the broader self-driving space, the quaint Firefly has been left in the dust.

    The Firefly’s crowning achievement was a demonstration that exemplified Google’s self-driving goals: expanding safe mobility for everyone. The company staged the first-ever fully autonomous trip in Austin in 2015 with Steve Mahan, a blind man, in the passenger seat.

    Now that the tech has matured and Waymo is focused on producing its own hardware to better serve its software platform, the company will throw all of its efforts into its other vehicles, most notably with its fleet of Chrysler Pacifica minivans, which will be used in the Phoenix-based public pilot program. Also, expect to see more of its efforts shifted to new experiments, like trucks.

    But the contributions of the Firefly won’t be forgotten and it’ll have the chance for one last victory lap before going off the roads for good. Members of the fleet will take two final road trips in Phoenix and Austin in August and October, respectively, before being enshrined in The Computer History Museum and the Design Museum in London.

    Happy trails as you drive off into the sunset, Firefly.

    Sebastian Telfair: Ex-NBA player arrested in car filled with loaded guns, police say

    2017-06-12 09:26:44 Mr Nas Karr

    Former Big Apple basketball sensation Sebastian Telfair was busted early Sunday in Brooklyn with a bulletproof vest and a small arsenal inside his truck, police sources said.

    The 32-year-old had been with another man, identified as Jami Thomas, 18, when cops pulled him over in Bed-Stuy around 2:50 a.m. and uncovered the weapons cache during a routine traffic stop, according to authorities.

    All in all, officers found three loaded pistols, a gas-operated submachine gun, extended magazines, ammunition and the ballistic vest.

    The pair had been driving in a Ford F-150 pickup truck without the headlights on, prompting officers to stop them, sources said.

    After being pulled over, cops smelled marijuana and eventually spotted a burning joint inside the truck. They then asked Telfair and Thomas to step out of the vehicle and placed them under arrest.

    Upon searching the truck, sources said officers discovered two bags of pot and the pairs gun collection which included a SIG MPX Pistol, a Ruger LC9s, and a Springfield Armory XD9 Mod 2 Pistol.

    Telfair, who was driving, was later charged with unlawful possession of a ballistic vest, unlawful possession of ammunition magazine, possession of a controlled substance, aggravated unlicensed operator of a motor vehicle and a motor vehicle equipment violation.

    Thomas was also slapped with controlled substance and gun possession-related charges, as well.

    The two men were arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal Court on Sunday night and held on bond.
