London will host Formula E electric Grand Prix Posted on 13 March 2013 by Vicky Ellis The UK will host one of the first ever electric Grand Prix-style races in London when the Formula E Championship kicks off next year. Eight cities so far have been selected to hold races in 2014, including Rome in Italy, China’s capital Beijing and the South American party centres Rio De Janeiro in Brazil and Argentina’s Buenos Aires.
Motor Trend has bestowed its coveted Car of the Year title on Tesla ‘s Model S, making it the first car without an internal combustion engine to earn such an honor. The vehicle won out of 25 other contenders, with a total of 45 variants. All of the vehicles were put through an “extensive battery of testing” that examined just about everything you can examine on a car.

It was only December of last year when Google earned patents for autonomous vehicles .
Individual mobility is increasingly defined in terms of sustainability.
For more than half a century, many social scientists and urban geographers interested in modeling the movement of people and goods between cities, states or countries have relied on a statistical formula called the gravity law, which measures the “attraction” between two places. Introduced in its contemporary form by linguist George Zipf in 1946, the law is based on the assumption that the number of trips between two cities is dependent on population size and the distance between the cities. (The name comes from an analogy with Newton’s Law of Gravity, which describes the attraction of two objects based on mass and distance.)
The graphic language of the London Underground map is so iconic that "[insert any network or process here] visualized as a London Underground map" has become a design cliché. So why are we writing about the latest iteration, a Tube-style map of U.S. interstate highways , created by Cameron Booth ? Because, clichéd or not, visualizing this particular system in this way is actually damned useful.
