Talking Cars
FILE - In this July 20, 2015 file photo, a pedestrian crosses in front of a vehicle as part of a demonstration at Mcity on its opening day on the University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor, Mich. Automakers say cars that wirelessly talk to each other are finally ready for the road. The cars hold the potential to dramatically reduce traffic deaths, improve the safety of self-driving cars and someday maybe even help solve traffic jams. Government and industry have spent more than a decade and more than $1 billion researching and testing the technology, known as vehicle-to-vehicle communications, or V2V. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya, File)
APTOPIX Singapore Autonomous Taxis
A driver, right, gets his hands off of the steering wheel of an autonomous vehicle during its test drive in Singapore Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2016. The world’s first self-driving taxis, operated by nuTonomy, an autonomous vehicle software startup, will be picking up passengers in Singapore starting Thursday, Aug. 25. The service will start small - six cars now, growing to a dozen by the end of the year. The ultimate goal, say nuTonomy officials, is to have a fully self-driving taxi fleet in Singapore by 2018, which will help sharply cut the number of cars on Singapore’s congested roads.

NerdWallet-How To Get Ready For Your VW Payout
FILE - In this Thursday, April 21, 2016, file photo, Joyce Ertel Hulbert, owner of a 2015 Volkswagen Golf TDI, holds a sign while interviewed outside of the Phillip Burton Federal Building in San Francisco. Loyal owners of Volkswagen diesel cars understandably felt betrayed when they learned the German automaker had rigged the testing process to bypass U.S. emissions standards. Thanks to the settlement announced in June, people who bought or leased the affected vehicles are sorting through a complex set of tables and charts to find out what they will be paid, or they are waiting to see if a fix will be available to prevent excess release of pollutants.
