  • Autonomous vehicles: Are they ready for road challenges yet?
  • I think that the big advantages come during rush hour traffic especially in heavy traffic areas. Although automatic braking upon approaching too close to another vehicle is going to help especially distracted drivers---we have a great deal of that nowadays.

  • War of currents: Tesla vs Edison
  • Thanks for that additional comment @merlin749----We've certainly come a long way in electric motor drive technology

  • Solar highway facts and fallacies
  • Let's wait a bit and see if you are right or not. I will be publishing a follow up for all of you on this program and if it is not working, I will be the first to let you know. I hope you are wrong because we need to deploy solar wherever we can along with other alternative energies in order to get away from fossil fuels---of course the cost must be reasonable to us as consumers and taxpayers---I agree with you there. Let's give it a chance before we declare it dead

  • Solar highway facts and fallacies
  • @steve92 please let's have a civil and technical discussion. If you disagree then please state your facts so others can either confirm of debate

  • Solar highway facts and fallacies
  • Let's not get ahead of ourselves---this is still in a very early trial stage and there are many hurdles to be overcome I am sure. They are starting small. Municipal areas like highways and rest stops and parking area are huge un-used areas to implement solar as well as having the capability of having an active graphic roadway for safety and information. Let's keep an open mind---not all homeowners want a solar panel on top of their roof.
