Daher’s HomeSafe uses an iteration of Garmin’s Autoland system. Daher/Airborne Films

French aircraft maker Daher says new TBM 940s rolling off the assembly line in Tarbes, France, will now be equipped with the HomeSafe system, which allows the aircraft to automatically locate a suitable airport and conduct an instrument approach to a safe landing should the pilot become incapacitated. The new HomeSafe system—that simultaneously received both FAA and EASA certification last week—is an iteration of Garmin’s Autoland emergency landing system. The company says new 940s already delivered this year will be upgraded at TBM service centers. HomeSafe is also available as a retrofit to earlier 940 aircraft at a cost of $85,000.

Daher says, “The system is activated manually by an easily recognizable orange button atop the cockpit instrument panel, or semi-automatically if the Emergency Descent Mode has been engaged. The [HomeSafe] software integrates weather and terrain information to select the best airport for landing taking into account aircraft fuel range and runway length. During the landing rollout, HomeSafe will simultaneously activate the landing gear and brakes and shut down the engine.”

2020 Audi E-Tron Sportback

The 2020 Audi E-Tron Sportback electric crossover SUV earned a Top Safety Pick+ for acing all crash tests and having advanced safety features that rated “Superior,” the IIHS announced Monday. 

New for 2020, the E-Tron Sportback is as much wagon as SUV, though Audi and other German automakers are keen on calling such mashups “four-door coupes.”

Based on the Audi E-Tron SUV launched for 2019 with a 248-mile range, the E-Tron Sportback follows in the safety footsteps of the SUV with “Good” scores on all six crash tests and for its standard LED headlights. The IIHS deemed the vehicles similar enough to base the crash-test ratings on the 2019 E-Tron SUV in all-wheel drive and the Premium Plus trim. 

The driver-assist technology ranks “Superior” based on its automatic emergency braking system that comes standard. Called “Audi Pre Sense Front,” the system on the E-Tron can avoid a crash with another vehicle or a pedestrian at 25 mph, and can slow to nearly a halt at 12 mph. 

The 2019 E-Tron SUV earned similar ratings, as well as a five-star crash test rating from the NHTSA, earning it a rare, perfect 10 in our safety scorecard. (Read more about how we rate cars.) We expect the 2020 E-Tron Sportback to rate as high once it has been tested by the NHTSA. 

The 2020 E-Tron Sportback joins the Tesla Model 3 as the only electric vehicles to earn the TSP+ distinction for 2020. The Audi A6 sedan and wagon are Audi’s other 2020 models with a TSP+ award.

2021 Porsche 911 Turbo

The new 911 Turbo will hit 198 mph on a long enough runway in a straight line, but it’s the Turbo’s ability to take a corner that captivates us more. The 911 Turbo rides on front 255/35R20 front tires and 315/30R21 rear tires, all of which are 10 millimeters wider than the outgoing model’s shoes. All-wheel drive is standard on the 911 Turbo, and so is all-wheel steering.

The front rotors are Thanksgiving-sized 16-inch plates that are nearly 1.5 inches thick. The rear rotors aren’t far behind: 15 inches in diameter and 1.2 inches thick. Carbon ceramic stoppers are an option with 10-piston front calipers.

Lantern House, Melbourne, Australia

Inspiring single family house located in Melbourne, Australia, redesigned and extended in 2019 by Timmins + Whyte Architects.

Lantern house extension is passively cooled in summer with the use of openable skylights, fans and louvered windows on the ground floor. The extension has been designed to play with light, it allows the space to bathe in it, or retreat from it through the remotely controlled blinds on the upper level expanses of glass. The project incorporates a large water bladder under the front verandah to water the gardens and solar panels on the roof for energy.

A shell has been formed with Matte white Colorbond cladding on a lightweight timber structure to protect the honey coloured local timber (Tasmanian oak) interior linings, windows and doors from the weather.

The house is a series of choreographed spaces with views to the outside from every angle. There is a sense of calm, like being at a day spa. It feels soft, it feels light and unfussy. The main living and kitchen now feel part of the whole site, and will evolve and change with seasons as the garden grows.⠀
