Electric vehicles could be powered by hydrogen harvested from sewage

Hydrogen is valuable as it is a renewable source, and could be sold to the chemicals and plastics industry or used in hydrogen fuel...

Why fast charging reduces the capacity of a car battery

When lithium ions are forced rapidly through a battery, they might get stuck and turn into lithium metal, no longer able to move through...

Deadly auto crashes more likely during pandemic lockdown, shows study

With fewer people on the road during the early days of the pandemic, more drivers were speeding and driving recklessly, resulting in more crashes...

Elon Musk’s Tesla Bot raises serious concerns – but probably not the ones you...

Elon Musk announced a humanoid robot designed to help with those repetitive, boring tasks people hate doing. Musk suggested it could run to the grocery...

Self-driving cars could learn to drive by mimicking others, shows study

Researchers develop new machine learning algorithm that teaches cars to self-drive by observing other traffic. Self-driving cars are powered by machine learning algorithms that require...
