A new and amazing "sticky" technology has been patented by Google. The technology is intended to help protect pedestrians from serious harm when they are hit by Google's self-driving cars. The patent for the technology was granted on May 15.
A federal court approved a $10 million settlement deal last year. The settlement was between residents from one of Jersey City's southern neighborhoods and the property owner Honeywell. The residents were litigating a class action suit against Honeywell relating to injuries from chromium contamination. The $10 million settlement is to be distributed to approximately 2,000 plaintiffs in increments of $2,926 after attorneys' fees are removed.
