    Green Acres and Autonomy

    Chances are, when you think “autonomous vehicles,” you think along the lines of this: the Google car.

    VW and CAE

    In case you’re wondering what Volkswagen has come up with to address the emissions issues with its 1.6-liter EA 189 diesel engines, at least for non-U.S. markets (this has been presented to the German Federal Motor Transport Authority, which has ratified the approach), here is the physical part of the fix: That’s a “flow straightener” or “flow transformer.” It is positioned directly in front of the air mass sensor.
