I think he was referring to the Mad Max clip above. Where Mad Max drives a supercharged Falcon (or Interceptor).

on their website they have the absorption graphs too. You can see it does have an impact but not totally.

One of the main LIDAR wavelengths is around 10micrometers which Vanatablack only has a mild response to. It will dull the image but not remove it. It’s design was to absorb wavelengths in the visible range.

Because most dipshits that use their phone while driving will just sit there after the light changes. You can drive the car of play with your phone, not both.

Almost, Vantablack absorbs wavelengths in the visible range (what our human eyes are capable of seeing) but LIDAR uses a combination of band outside the visible spectrum. Also, LIDAR doesn’t rely on purely reflected “light” but rather paints a picture from the scattered light that isn’t being absorbed. RADAR on the Read more

That’s very true. And a good point. I wonder if testing for licences will evolve as fast as the availability of cars with autonomous control systems. I find the X-Trail thing scary because those that learn to drive with those systems in place will be a huge liability if they ever drive something a little older. The Read more

Exactly this. People forget the responsibility of control is on the “driver” of the vehicle. Not the computer the driver turned on and didn’t pay attention to. That’s why the new Nissan X-trail ads worry me. They actively tell drivers they don’t need to pay as much attention because the brakes work even when the Read more

There’s a few different ways that’s done. The most common systems I’ve worked with are magnetic sensors under the road, pressure sensors under the road, light beam interrupters mounted on the poles at the intersections and good old fashions statistical math and timers. Sometimes they will use a combination of these Read more

My first job in the mid 90's was being one of these guys at a gas station which had the bell system.

You can a lot of the time if you have the bank account. It’s called “Paint to Sample”. Porsche uses this option more than anyone else I’ve noticed but I’ve seen Lotus, Mclaren, Rolls and Bentley perform the extra step on request.

I’ll take a Mugen Civic RR. Unfortunately only 300 were made and they sold out in 10 minutes but it was a full fat Civic Type R sedan with factory supported tuning. It got a 243hp K20, adjustable coilovers, big brakes and a whole lot of tasty treats.
