Smart Breakdown Service from the AA28 Jun 2019 14:59:52
The AA has plans to offer its new Smart Breakdown service. This will be fully integrated into the award-winning AA app, offering UK motorists a simple, intuitive process to help them prevent, predict and report breakdowns. Smart Breakdown works by using a small plug-in device fitted in the member's car which transmits fault information to the AA and then notifies the member. This means the AA can alert the member when they need to take remedial action (for example turning their lights off), therefore preventing a breakdown. When it is not possible to prevent or predict a breakdown, Smart Breakdown will automatically send information about a fault directly to the AA. Smart Breakdown is a premium tier of breakdown membership and will be available to new and existing members of the AA for an additional £5 per month or £49 per year. It will be rolled out before the end of the year.

Autonomous Tractor at Goodwood28 Jun 2019 14:56:59
The Case IH autonomous concept vehicle or ACV, will make its UK debut at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed as part of the event's Future Lab exhibition. Now in its third year, FoS Future Lab, Goodwood's technology and innovation pavilion, is bigger than ever. The autonomous concept tractor, designed and built by Case IH, promises to bring significant productivity benefits to world agriculture and can be operated unmanned and monitored remotely. This ground-breaking tractor is equipped with a range of technologies that are used for remote monitoring and control via a PC or tablet, meaning that once the tractor is in the field it can work completely independently, eliminating the need for a driver to observe operation, and so removing the need for a cab. "We are delighted to be bringing the ACV to Goodwood for its UK unveiling," said Paul Harrison, UK Business Director for Case IH. "It is a concrete example of Case IH's commitment to agricultural innovation, and helping our customers improve their productivity and efficiency." The tractor will be on display from July 4-7.
