    Such demonstrations are very convincing for the public, and some people will talk about the success of a particular model. I advised my friend about Subaru and he immediately bought one. Now, if he had a comparison study, perhaps he would have gone for a Buick. But when I watch this video I am frustrated there is no useful caption obvious to me to tell us the speed of the car. I have trouble guessing, and I shouldn't have to. The crash dummy benefits for the air bags, no obvious broken neck. I like that. But we can see how his head probably makes a touchdown anyway at the goalpost. I wonder if the airbag can be mounted above, expand downward, and be shaped to wrap in front of the roof support. The speed of the air bag appears entirely workable. Maybe the support can house an airbag. Nice demonstration but put a big caption there for a few seconds and give the impact speed.

Autonomous Vehicles will Create a Radical Paradigm Shift in Vehicle Design

By Mike Antich
My prediction is that autonomous vehicles will create a paradigm shift in vehicle design, whereby interior design will become the primary brand differentiator in the future. What will drive this paradigm shift is that future autonomous vehicle design will focus primarily on the passenger and not the driver. This will create a tectonic shift in vehicle design with ramifications that will take decades to fully play out.

Focusing on the Vehicle Delivery Process

By Sherb Brown
The fleet industry is evolving at an ever-increasing pace, but the one area that hasn’t evolved and never seems to improve is the actual vehicle delivery process. It would seem to be the easiest part of the whole business, but it is the one area that everyone struggles with.
