Volvo Cars and Luminar show groundbreaking autonomous technology development at Automobility LA 2018 Volvo Cars and Luminar show groundbreaking autonomous technology development at Automobility LA 2018 Volvo Cars and Luminar show groundbreaking autonomous technology development at Automobility LA 2018 While I was busy scribbling away at our annual Best Fuel Efficient Motorcycles list, the 2018 LA Auto Show (going by the name, “Automobility 18”) got underway with announcements from several major brands.

The I-PAS system was brought to the series attention after a 2016 misdiagnosis on driver Will Power. He had hit the wall during a practice session for the season-opening race and as the weekend progressed, Power displayed concussion-like symptoms. Power was not cleared to race.
