    If Uber had left the Volvo XC90 SUV emergency braking system enabled, it could have independently decided to stop to avoid the collision with the bicyclist in time to save their life.

    Volvo has this emergency braking system for huge semi-truck's, and I am assuming the current model Volvo cars with the similar system would be just as responsive.

    Here are 2 Volvo Truck video's for the automatic emergency braking, and a video of a recent incident where a blind dash by a child ended in a successful stop, and no loss of life.

    EEVblog #1092 - Wi-Charge IR Wireless Charging - Fact or Fiction?
    EEVblog
    Published on Jun 5, 2018
    Running the numbers on the W-Charge Infrared laser wireless charging system, does it work?, is it practical?, what is the efficiency?, how much power can it deliver?, is it dangerous?
    And the laser power is HOW MUCH?!
    CORRECTION: The laser output power was stated incorrectly, it was assuming the input power to the laser when it should have been the optical output power. The correct number for a 45% solar cell and zero other losses is 11.1W laser power, not 18W. Still the same class of laser and just as dangerous.
    In response to the Linus Tech Tips demonstration.
    Also some talk on the Energous RF Wireless energy boondoggle.
