Phoenix-area residents might catch a glimpse of Google’s self-driving vehicles being tested on local roadways if they keep an eye out. Just watch for Lexus SUVs with odd-looking equipment attached to the roof that are driving extra courteous.
Kingsport Times-News -- The next big startup ideas in 21st Century auto technology got a test drive during a recent event held at the Kingsport Chamber of Commerce. Six of those ideas were pitched to a group called autoXLR8R — an auto business startup program based in Middle Tennessee — plus members of AccelNow, located at the Kingsport chamber.
Both autoXLR8R and Accel-Now are focused on bringing new auto technologies to market, and at least getting those ideas to the business incubator stage to draw interest from investors.
