Fake News B.S. — A Lesson In Communications

October 27th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

I drafted the title for this article weeks ago and have had it open since. Don't tell Aaron Fishbone that I'm writing it now, as I should be focused on an EV charging white paper. But I felt it was finally time to roll through it as a wait for and then drink some late-night coffee

Self-driving vehicles — 2 years out? 20 years out? How about today? Hot news out of Germany is that a self-driving minibus is now in operation in Bad Birnbach, Lower Bavaria, Germany. There are two things I love about this story, but first, a few more details
