Will Cars Soon Detect Potholes?

Use a GPS tracking device to protect your vehicle, and take a look at this article to see what’s happening in pothole technology.

If you live in a cold climate, you have experienced more than a few potholes post-winter. The harsh winter weather causes pavement to buckle and crack, and this leads to roads that are riddled with potholes when the warmer weather comes around.

The Secret Lives of Pandas

The Secret Lives of Pandas

We don’t know much about pandas, and (as it turns out) all that we did know might not actually be true. For the first time, researchers have used GPS tracking devices to track the behavior of pandas. What they have recently discovered is that pandas aren’t as lazy as once thought.
