It’s set to offer insurers, drivers and, in the case of autonomous vehicles, manufacturers independent evidence of what happened. This will not just lead to safer vehicles but also help to build public trust in driverless vehicles. [Read more…] about Roke demonstrates ‘3D’ black box technology for vehicles
