Learn how automotive technology can prevent single-vehicle crashes, cut down on accidents involving teenage drivers, and reduce Western dependence on fossil fuels. Crucial advances featured in this program include: electronic stability control, which applies brake pressure selectively to avoid skidding; smart key systems from Volvo that won’t start an engine for drivers who have been drinking and won’t go faster than 60 kilometers per hour with an inexperienced driver at the wheel; and the development of a process called fast pyrolysis, which extracts fuel from agricultural waste and other biomass. In addition, students at Britain’s Royal College of Art show off designs for high-tech plastic cars. Part of the Auto Innovations: The Art and Science of Car Engineering Series of 13 videos.
