Ford Builds the World's Largest Robot-Driven Pickup

TFL Car (Dec. 22, 2013) — ( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The Ford F-150 is the best selling vehicle in America...that's a fact, but is it the world's most durable truck? In order to improve and test the F-150's durability, Ford has built the world's largest robot controlled remote control truck. In the past in order to test the durability of an F-150 Ford drove the truck around a punishing circuit but the problem was the testing punished the driver's as much as the truck. In order to solve that problem Ford has created a driverless robotic durability test program as Roman discovered on a recent trip to Dearborn, Michigan.

Space X Tests Dragon Parachute System

NASA (Jan. 17, 2014) — NARRATOR: SpaceX engineers prepared the 12,000 pound Dragon test article to be lifted 8,000 feet from Morro Bay, California and flown out over the Pacific Ocean. SpaceX employees worked around-the-clock on the days leading up to the company's parachute test. Heavy wind, dense fog and high seas along the coast of California didn't deter their enthusiasm as they prepared to test the parachute system that could safely splash down NASA's astronaut crew following an in-flight anomaly.
