Sounds like a brilliant read, I know quite a few engineers that would be interested in reading it. Yep the price is a bit steep but I guess you must be allowed to share your copy. Electric most definitely is the future there a loads of vacancies available at the moment for automotive electrical engineers: http://www.inengineering.co.uk/industries/automotive-jobs

I would love to have the car and I would love to read the book. But, at $40,000 and $120, I'm not going to do either. I have a lot of doubt about the savings potential when two power plants are carried around, as in the Volt and Hybrids. I'd be happy to have those doubts eliminated though. One of the difficulties in understanding the cost/benefit equation for hybrids and plug-in hybrids is the fact that so much of the dialog is politicized. Mush of what you read or hear about it comes from a source with an agenda. Given the source of the materials in this book, I'd be interested to see how balanced it is.

A 40,000$ car and a 120$ book? Just give me a 22,000 Prius Hybrid!

Its an excellent concise article of the bunch of papers published for a model car. And it really creates curiosity of reading the original book and papers.

It sounds like an interesting book given the addition of the personal insights to the technical papers. I remember reading Soul of the New Machine by Tracy Kidder (I think that was the author) and enjoyed the personalities as much as the story of the development of the computer. I must confess that I would NEVER spend 120 dollars on any book.


Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
