Biggest GM Recalls Recalled test 1-1

You couldn’t avoid the latest GM recall and the storm of media coverage around it even if you lived under a rock! As the saga unravels in front of our eyes, it’s hard not to wonder what the future will hold for GM. This is, after all, the same company that was already struggling to keep up in the most important class in the industry, the truck market. This isn’t, however, GM’s first rodeo and, to be fair, there isn’t a major auto maker out there that hasn’t had a scandalous recall of some kind... so here’s a look back at GM’s history of recalls.

Close your eyes a minute and picture a police officer in his vehicle. He can be sitting on the side of the road manning a speed trap or coming up behind you when you’re going a little too fast.

Volvo's Driver Sensor Technologies Detect Tiredness test 1-1

No other manufacturer seems to be researching new technologies and publicizing their efforts quite like Volvo. Over the past few months alone, the automaker has detailed its car delivery system and energy-storing body panels. It has also done a lot of work with sensor systems that automote driving and parking. This time, it's turning its sensors inside out, using driver-monitoring technology to increase safety and awareness.

Road rage detection test 2

Technology is heartless. By definition it has to be. Devices are created to perform jobs that are too boring or difficult for the common man to perform.
