As autonomous vehicle development continues at a rapid pace, lots of the component technology needed to make driverless cars a reality is already finding its way into the models we're driving right now. A large amount of it so far is concentrated on safety, and understandably, we're talking largely about the safety of the vehicle's occupants. But it now appears GM is working on a new safety feature aimed at protecting pedestrians.

Test Drive

Forget seven-seat hand-built Range Rovers, 212mph Corvettes and stripped-back Porsche 911s aimed at racing purists, this year's LA Auto Show also featured its fair share of announcements and reveals for real car owners.

Travel routes

Between Nice and Menton the mountains plunge sharply down to the sea. Running along these heights are three famous routes: the Grande Corniche, the Moyenne Corniche and the Basse Corniche. The first affords the most stunning views, climbing to 1,476ft/450m. The second offers beautiful vistas along the shore; while the third provides access to the coastal resorts.
