Its a long way home
At the end of the road
I'll be pavin' my own way
To the top I'll be here to stay
So take my name
Remember this face
Keep the change and have a nice day
And live for the moment not by the past
Homie live each day like it's your last👌🏻#rosehole#highwaydriving#mgk#machinegunkelly#endoftheroad
Follow up with the eye clinic at CHEO this morning at 10am.
Left at 7:30 after de-icing the car. The highway between Pembroke and Ottawa was clear. But it still took 2 hours because we got stuck behind 2 plows. The 417 between Kanata and Riverside was a million times worse.
The appointment took FIVE minutes.
But they were checking to make sure he no longer favoured an eye post-surgery. He does not. Succes!!! Why is this so great? If he did favour one eye over the other ... P A T C H I N G would be required. But that's NOT the case!!! Next appointment will be in August for gis final FINAL post-surgery follow up.
The emergency braking of Inifini’s QX80 prevented a collision underneath the Gardiner Expressway.
We tested the automated braking on a busy Toronto on-ramp.
It was a rude, careless driver that set the scene for a sharp test of Nissan/Infiniti’s emergency forward braking. I was driving the Infiniti QX80 SUV, a luxury yacht on wheels, when a man driving a grey Ford Escape attempted the cut-in from the right lane.
Stunned for a nano-instant, my mind pondered the only two possible outcomes – a collision with the Ford’s broadside or a hard stop. Before I could react, the vehicle did. Emergency braking kicked in automatically, before my foot could transfer from the gas to the brake pedal. Less than a metre of distance was left between the pair of SUVs.
Data from five cameras and three radar installations monitor the situation on the road, and the onboard computer enables the vehicle to react accordingly, in some cases faster than a human driver.
Engineers predict an accident-free future with autonomous-driven cars. I got a taste of that future under the Gardiner one day.
Unfamiliar with how automated emergency braking (AEB) works? See our previous post for an explainer.
