Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Recently I reported on the San Francisco Fire dept. being upset at how a Cruise robotaxi coming the other direction couldn’t clear out of that lane when the fire engine was blocked by a stopped garbage truck. Discussion suggest there was concern over whether cars like the Cruise were ready for driving on a road with emergency vehicles. While there may be some small issues to resolve, emergency crews should take heart. A future is possible where they will be able to respond to emergencies far better than they can today, thanks to robocars and other future technologies like e-VTOL aircraft. Robotaxi developers build simulations of situations on the road, including encountering emergency vehicles. They do thousands of variations of those situations to try to make sure their car will do well. When it doesn’t, they fix it. They may not get everything, but they will constantly improve as they learn — and one of the ways they … [Read more...] about Forget SFFD Being Upset At Cruise, The Future For Emergency Vehicles With Robocars & e-VTOL Is Super Positive

Choice Market’s new store in Golden Triangle just got a little sweeter. Nearly two years after BusinessDen first reported on it, the local convenience store chain has opened its fourth location on the ground floor of the Parq on Speer apartment building at 909 Bannock St. The 5,000-square-foot space, which opened Feb. 26, also features the fourth location of High Point Creamery, an ice cream shop that already operates in RiNo, Berkeley and Hilltop. “There are around 3,000 units either built or planned in the three-to-four-block radius, and it’s one of the highest-density residential neighborhoods in Denver,” said Choice Market CEO Mike Fogarty. “But it lacks a lot of amenities and services. So, between that, Denver Health and the hospital caddy-corner from us, I’m guessing this will be a very successful store.” Choice Market’s newest and largest store sells groceries, local craft beer, hot and cold grab-and-go meals, snacks, cold-pressed juices, soups, breakfast burritos … [Read more...] about Choice Market opens high-tech store featuring an ice cream shop inside
