  14. A futuristic 15-story showroom in Singapore dubbed the ‘world’s largest luxury car vending machine,’ has opened, offering customers million-dollar supercars - including Ferraris, Bentleys, Lamborghinis and Porsches. The facility, built by used car dealer Autobahn Motors (ABM), simulates a 'fish-bone’ system capable of minimizing wind resistance. About 60 luxury cars are displayed in its illuminated showcase. @Auto_Showcase
  15. Elon Musk threatens to leave White House councils over Paris deal: politico: Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Wednesday that if President Donald Trump follows through on pulling the U.S. out of the Paris climate change agreement, he’d “have no choice” but to cut off his participation in White House business councils. “Don’t know which way Paris will go, but I’ve done all I can to advise directly to POTUS, through others in WH & via councils, that we remain,” Musk tweeted. Musk followed up with a tweet saying, “Will have no choice but to depart councils” if Trump pulls out of the Paris deal backed by nearly 200 other countries. POLITICO and others have reported that Trump is expected to withdraw the U.S. from the climate agreement. Musk has emerged as the Trump White House’s go-to tech industry executive. The Tesla and SpaceX CEO has taken part, for example, in the so-called “President’s Strategic and Policy Forum.” Uber CEO Travis Kalanick stepped down from that group in February after a public backlash, including from inside the technology industry. At the time, Musk decided to stay involved, saying, “I believe at this time that engaging on critical issues will on balance serve the greater good.” Musk’s threatened break with Trump comes as the White House is trying to bring tech CEOs and other executives to Washington on June 19 for a day-long summit on modernizing government technology, cybersecurity, immigration and other topics. @Auto_Showcase

  18. the-future-now: the-future-now: Self-driving cars may mean 200 million fewer cars on the roads by 2030 Self-driving cars are a viable reality in the not-so-far-off future. In order to dramatically alter transportation, autonomous vehicles need to be embraced by consumers and businesses. But that shouldn’t be a problem, according to an optimistic new report by independent research group RethinkX. RethinkX forecasts that 60% of vehicles on the road will be self-driving cars within 10 years of government approval of autonomous vehicles. The group also anticipates each autonomous electric car replacing multiple private vehicles, which suggests the number of cars on the road will see a sharp decline. Their estimates are somewhere around 44 million. For reference, there are around 247 million vehicles on the road currently. Read more (5/5/17) follow @the-future-now​ Just a few self-driving cars on each road could help curb America’s traffic problem As self-driving cars reduce the number of human calculations made on the road, traffic may also start to dwindle, according to a recent study. In Tucson, Arizona, a team of engineers placed an autonomous car on a circle track with at least 20 human-driven cars. They set controls on the autonomous car’s speed and found that it was able to smooth traffic on the track, regulating human drivers for the better and reducing total fuel consumption by about 40%. “Our experiments show that, with as few as 5% of vehicles being automated and carefully controlled, we can eliminate stop-and-go waves caused by human driving behavior,” Daniel B. Work, assistant professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, said in the study’s release. Read more (5/10/17) @Auto_Showcase
