No shit: Google's Waymo uses clever rotating blades to wipe bird poop from its dome

"Oh yeah, and how will your fancy self-driving car even drive itself if it gets mud on the camera and can't see?" I'm so glad you asked. And, look, I admit I'd been wondering how the likes of Google and the rest of the self-driving squad would deal with the not-so-small matter of ensuring their clever cars can actually see where they're going. I mean, obviously the solution was never going to be that the car would ask you to hop out with a hanky and give its dome a wipe.

New Suzuki Swift touches down ahead of June 2 launch

A batch of all-new 2017 Suzuki Swifts have arrived from the factory in Japan for the Australian launch on June 2, ready to help add some life to our flagging light car market. The new Swift - which replaces the seven-year-old outgoing model - is the latest in a line of new offerings from Suzuki, and by far its most important. While the new Ignis, Baleno and Vitara are doing relatively well, the Swift is the company's most important car and the one for which it is best known.

2018 Lamborghini Urus spied on the Nurburgring

The Lamborghini Urus has been spied undergoing handling tests on the Nurburgring. This latest vehicle seems to be wearing the same level of disguise as the last prototype we published, back in February. Those photos, especially of the car's rear, weren't of the highest quality, though.
