This is not exactly new technology. Our 2001 Acura MDX used the exact same method. One problem with it was that it tended to become non responsive when it was hit with sunlight... Other than that it worked well.
The elephant in the room is that German, and European drivers in general, are better and more skilled that American drivers, and thus better prepared to drive at such speeds. A good percentage of American drivers are dangerous at 65 and the danger goes up by the square of the speed...
I have yet to ever have an Asus mobo fail on me after many years and many boards
Toyota despises electric cars and has publicly stated this on many occasions. They plan to sell exactly the number of RAV4EVs that they need to meet CARB requirements (about 2,600) and not one more than that! Toyota believes (foolishly) that the future is hydrogen... It is unfortunate because the Fiat E is actually an excellent electric car! Far better than the gas version, in fact!
Never forget that a good portion of "Bond Managers" are idiots when ti comes to the real world...
They used a previous generation vehicle as the mule, which was much less desirable, did not offer Quick Charge capability, screwed with the $7,500 federal tax refund on leases, and generally did everything they could to insure that they would not sell one more than the minimum 2,600 they needed to fill CARB requirements. It is no secret that Toyota hates EVs and will do anything they can to squash them!
I'm sorry but this has existed in one form or other on hundreds of different cameras for many decades! Simply adding one more camera to the list (iPhone) does not make it a new and patentable device! Clearly this is prior art and the patent should have been rejected by the patent office.
Oracle was involved. Need we go any further?!
Yep, my 2001 Acura has it too. They use wheel sensor data for speed and a gyro compass for azimuth. It works very well.
I have to disagree. I have a huge Insteon system and find it to be totally reliable. Actually, the larger the system the more reliable it is as every unit acts as a repeater and thus, the more units you have the more robust the system is.
An incredibly stupid idea that is not only illegal in most states but also an invitation for liability lawsuits and potential accidents... Hoepfully saner heads will prevail and this "feature" will never see the light of day!
Decades ago congress passed a law that require that Emergency rooms had to treat people whether or not they could pay... This is the gist of the problem and why so many trauma centers are going out of business... The illegal population now uses these as their own, free medical care, and the Hospital has to accept them and absorb a good portion of the cost...
It is a stupendous car, the ordering and delivery process was a dream, and the customer support after the sale has been flawless. The other dealers can simply go pound sand! Rather than bitching, try doing everything right like Tesla!
There are always at least two sides to every story... To wit: http://wheels.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/02/12/the-charges-are-flying-over-a-test-of-teslas-charging-network/
