Industry Insiders: The Crossover

Posted by Kyle Forbush on May 1, 2019 10:12:15 AM

We are living in a century of farewells to many reliable, traditional methods of living. The U.S. Postal Service is slowly becoming defunct as e-mail, text messaging and social media take its place with unsurpassed speed & convenience. Cinemas are suffering because of streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime (Blockbuster & friends are already long-gone). In a more relevant occurrence, the American "sedan" is losing popularity and U.S. automakers are abandoning its production. Coming to take its place? Well, we'll get to that.

Do you remember that uneasy feeling and awkward sense of confusion the first time you encountered a roundabout? You were driving down a perfectly straight road that suddenly collided with a massive, paved circle, painted with white lines and dotted with bright, yellow yield signs. Enclosed in the center of the circle is an island of grass and some shrubbery. For some, it was like driving for the first time. Roundabouts can be quite tricky to navigate, but once you know the rules of the road, follow the signage, and gain some experience, you'll discover that roundabouts will actually help you make it safely to your destination in less time and with a lower chance of a collision.

Driver Safety Tips: Automatic Emergency Braking

Posted by Kyle Forbush on Jan 22, 2019 3:23:45 PM

Sticking with the theme of our last blog article about Adaptive Cruise Control, I will compare the intelligence of emerging auto technology to the proliferation of computer IQ in The Matrix.

Luckily, we're nowhere near the latter two circumstances, but the first was already being realized when the film came out.
