Alabama: The Newest Amazon Union Battleground
"Okay lena to understand. What is happening at this alabama warehouse. I'm guessing we should start by looking at some history. Yes and i spoke to just the person for that. Monday is gym specially and i'm a voca auditor for mercedes benz. Us international. We do audits on vehicles. After they're built jim as a very unique perspective on the union voted amazon because his mercedes plant. That was the epicenter of the last time. A super high profile labor battle played out in the state of alabama. And it makes sense that we'd be talking about auto plants because of course. A lot of foreign automakers have been opening factories in the south for decades. Now alex since the nineties yes they brought a lot of new jobs and jim you know he loves his job but he has a pretty glum view of why these foreign car companies came to the south in the first place the coming here because of the fact that there is not a fear of unions. You know they're saying we're just not educated. You know country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care a lot of this stems from to work laws and all this other states which say that each worker can choose not to pay union dues still. The auto industry is historically pretty unionized. So the big auto union. The united auto workers decided to go after these new southern factories prompting intense anti union campaigns all labor experts. I talked to about unionization in alabama. Brought up this period of time. Like michael innes jimenez from the university of alabama the board that i'll never forget. Do you want tuscaloosa to be the next detroit. Let's throw race in there too. Obviously but seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming the unions and then something incredible happened. workers at volkswagen in. Tennessee voted against the union and vw was the one company that actually wanted a union. It was the governor and republican lawmakers who fought against it from the air things just unraveled nissan workers in mississippi also rejected. The union at jim spits lease mercedes. Plant in alabama. Uaw didn't even petition for a vote. What it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in twenty five years on three attempts so this sets the stage for where we are. Now this is. Why alina been asking you. How alabama became the first state to potentially have a unionized amazon warehouse. Right that's why so many people find it surprising. But i actually think that could be one of the three main reasons why this warehouse got to a union votes. So quickly we know amazon has stamped out union attempts and other places perhaps. The company also wasn't expecting such aggressive organizing in alabama compared to more traditionally Activist places. That's factor number. One are the other two to others are about the time and the place. Then let's start with a time. This is one of the things. I heard from the union. That's helping organize amazon workers in bessemer. The unions called the retail wholesale and department store union. And it's president. Stuart applebaum pointed out that this warehouse is only about a year old so it opened right as the pandemic started. I believe that the pandemic opened a lot of people is they understand now that they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. I also think that people had expectations when they came in that were not being realized. Amazon has been raking in profits during the pandemic which workers often bring up and also amazon went on a massive hiring spree and this by the way is often when workers ended up gaining some more power which is when they know that the employer needs more workers. The retail union folks say the best. My warehouse workers reached out to them quietly in the summer. They were describing grueling productivity quotas. They wanted to have more say in how they work. How they get disciplined. How they get fired. The union then mobilized support system of other folks from the region who are already unionized particularly workers from poultry plants. Okay and that brings us to your third factor alina. Which is the place right exactly. Professor michael innes jimenez pointed out something notable about alabama on that few people might realize if you follow the border and the coastline between california and maryland. alabama has the highest unionization rate for every state between california maryland. and then throw in tennessee. Also it's a pretty low rate. Only about eight percent of alabama workers are union members which is lower than the national average. But it is higher than all other southern states. And then you've got the specific location of the amazon warehouse which has bessemer. It's a working class. Suburb of birmingham. It's got early roots. In steel and mining and unionized labor. And another thing about bessemer is that it's a community that's predominantly black and the amazon unionization campaign is evoking social justice themes focusing a lot on respect in the workplace and of course this is all happening on the heels of the black lives matter protests. Yes exactly but the union also presented as part of its history. Its members marched with martin luther king junior in the sixties the union president talks about how in the south labor and civil rights battles have always been intertwined and so alina people think that all of these things at the time the place the context will end up making a difference and give alabama. The nation's first unionized amazon warehouse. the union. certainly hope so folks there told me more than half of the workers at the bessemer warehouse signed petitions for union shop. So they think this could be it of course amazon for its part has led a big anti-union campaign. They've got required meetings where workers were told. How union dues our waste of money. How great these jobs are already with all the benefits and the starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour and for context. The minimum wage in alabama is also the federal minimum wage which is seven dollars. Twenty five cents an hour which makes amazon starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour. More than double the alabama minimum. That is actually a big point four. Jim spits lee over the mercedes benz plant as he's watching this big amazon union. Vote play out it'll send a nami ripple but it's going to send one. It's going to let people know that. Hey even people fifteen dollars an hour. Seventeen dollars an hour can have union in their workplace. Bessemer warehouse workers will be voting by mail through the end of march. If this votes exceeds at an anti union place like amazon in alabama. This could turn a whole new page for both the

"W twenty five sorta out suspension chassis crammed in a four point. Sixty two supercharge trae engine which produced six hundred forty horse power which is power levels. We wouldn't see again single-seat a grand prix racing until the nineteen eighties. And it was the call to have auto union who've been on top nine hundred eighty six where we're not off of its perch so it's it's a little bit of a dead end in the the the formula seventy was got rid of in the nineteen thirty seven and as i said the w. on five four was arguably a better car. But how can you argue is six hundred forty horsepower. Nineteen thirties tire. Technology just must've sounded amazing. Yeah i would. I would love to see one of those driven in anger Properly i think it would be a remarkable sight and so it was a strong contender. A big x factor think scores. But for me. The w eleven has x factor and the other things. So it's the culmination of all that success that we saw all that we've seen since fourteen but the to real killer things before it put it on number one one is. The fat extended their advantage at the top of f. One to a degree that you really don't normally see this far into rule set. You know the star of twenty twenty-nine almost is far ahead of the game is teams from the early nineties. Which is when there was some some pretty big gaps or things. Like w fourteen be williams. And i'll just last remarkable and it was innovative. Modern context innovative. They disenclave stuff with the suspension of the joe. Actually steering is the is the famous thing but it was a it was a. We've been stunned by not being defeated by nearly being defeated in twenty nine. We're gonna throw the kitchen sink alley and they made it work and it was a phenomenal and the second thing for me is although i think the italian grand prix pole position that lewis hamilton. Hundred sixty four point three miles. An hour record latte will probably stand for few years for me. It's the on board of his dapper. Spa argest is probably as close to perfection. As i've seen a car driver combination the confidence he has turn into the high medium speed corners compared to the two thousand and four lab that marks. You didn't they in the forgot. Use freud just another great f one car. That's impressive especially the low speaks. Also there were lighter. Those cars speech stuff the precision of hamilton. The conference he's got in the car. Today is something else. But alex you. You are a rare person in that you've also you're a unique person. One of the few people that see the w eleven in the flesh because most races were run behind closed doors. So what have you made a bit trackside. It looks to me like an incredible piece of kit. Yeah it comes back to what you're saying about the spa. Lap was onboard lewis. Hamilton about your boss says well. He's he's pigging qualify that you look at the labs they just shocking into corners like the wheel just goes completely around. The steering is just now that it just does everything they asked for it and time and time again. It was quite difficult last year in of have anything to really compare it to part from going. Formula erases which is not comparable token the the causing technology as much as much different Birthday but because i because of wasn't able to get as up close and personal with the with the cars trackside had to sort of just really try not to get in trouble with security while going to watch them these various things so you you always quite far removed in san seeing with my own eyes. But what you could say. Every time was the drive is just on the power that much earlier and they just it was just. It would turning much nicer. There is no. They wasn't it wasn't flawless. There were times when they would go off the off the off the road. Lock up and that's both helmets and combat asked. They would sort things out for when it mattered but it just seemed that little bit extra snappy oh just had just had more downforce that i think is worth making the point about this generation of cars which had been sort of slacked off variously in the whole the sound of the table hybrid thing. Fortunately that complaint has been drowned out now as well. But i think these cars trackside in previous seasons. I've been very impressed with the post. Two thousand sixteen cars have been able to do okay. So they're not impressive in the way that the pre warmer completely different thing but they are just incredible. Fuel used to seeing any other racing car where they can break them corner speed. They can carry in year they all. The false is racing cars in the world. And the w levin is the fastest car from the fastest season of the fastest category in motorsport and probably will remain so for some time. Yeah the two thousand. Four's that records of live largely being gone now she's been dealt with the earnings thing. That probably is the w eleven back is the show on the season last year or so of hoping that they keep the designation for twenty twenty one because then it's absolutely neild on number one and the arguing about grades pre cars but i understand that mercedes are going to gonna make twenty twenty one car w twelve which probably means. They've come up with something else. Clever way that nobody else knows about so. Perhaps i'll be her future future carts about sites christian helena the other day for future autosport magazine cover feature and he called me eleven. The best car. The mercedes is produced in the hybrid era. I think that's absolutely right. Something i always want to go back to you and watch again is the is the very end of the race of the amelia romania cambria imola where the safety causing out because festival puncture is out in the russell crashes underneath it you get to see what a different class that w eleven was in that run to the flag because stopping actually he so goods that he he injects an element of dow into how good read bullies that we know the second best car in formula one. Or you know. We look back last season. Second-best last season alexander born again in that race was nowhere really. Amber snapping was hanging on to the teams eighties cars. In fact he's the head of fao bought ask because both has run over. That ferrari suddenly went home at the front of a formula. One race happened before in two thousand twenty thought it was It was refused to let guy. He's he just he keeps in. Does you know you know. He's not because he's so good or is it cause ripples as a little bit now in that because he's out the right he's and both ashes come in for our you made. The call would have been a little bit stale. It's the two drivers teams at the front of the race. And they just clear off when the safety call comes in they are gone and is a great guy behind their ks over cars places on us ties but there's other drivers coming through but they are differently. They're absolutely gone. So it's worth just just looking at that thinking okay. That's the w eleven was no. I was just going to say one other thing. You make a good point about the red bull as well which is some calls a quick. But they're they're difficult and you need to be an actress tap into the time out of it but that doesn't allot the mercedes is it isn't a diva is not one of their earlier. Tricky cars and i think i'll make teach manage your draw so and i think he will probably get mercedes he's driving. We'll win races and probably world champs in the future but the fact that he could jump in and do.

"India mercedes which are a certain car concepts and stepping into a renault which was different car concept. He had to relearn things from scratch. Basically so elements of driving from car. The he'd taken for granted and think he kicked off didn't have to worry about. He was suddenly have to worry about again and relearn them like a rookie. So it would have been a good first step for carlos now we can go into simulator and give the team's feedback so when they turn up in bahrain for day one of testing they hit the ground running league. What else we learn from the test because it wasn't just one especially for science Charles declare with was there and so the ferrari academy drivers and in particular i think one of their futures got got explained even though it had quite a significance back to a former for drivers. See what what else did we learn from this test. Yes so on monday. Julian member of the ferrari driver kademi a number of years. He got his first formula. One task stay was opening on monday for the tape. And i believe it was close to thirty years to the day since john. Lacey had also done a ferrari test thinking his. I think john's. I wanna come a couple of months before that may be but yeah there was a there was a day significance and also the numbers as well lacey famously. Route twenty seven giuliano pick. Twenty eight is tax which was quite good but it was sort of a final hurrah for juliana as part the ferrari driver academy john lacey confirmed in an interview with mark. Lake charles bradley. It might split or calm that julianna would have been moving into japan next season and they confirmed the he'll be racing and super formula lights which is series blow super formula and also in the three hundred class. I believe all the cheese. So moving moving to japan's next step in shown lacy said he's still very much part of the family. That's still links there but no longer an official part of the ferrari driver kademi siwa. So yes. that's that's one of that. He just sign up. It's quite congested academy as we saw an fte next year. But i think we're still going to say a lot of presents for our in the junior. Ranks of course scored the coming year. Marcus armstrong he took part in his ferrari. Testy became the second new zealander after kris. Amen i believe to dr ferrari cost. I was quite cool. We racing enough to again this year. With dams and robot schwartzman. He also took part in the tests. Well and again. He'll be enough to again this season with. So it's yeah. It's a good thing for ferrari sweetser to get the youngsters out on track also helped make schumacher but some of his preparations ways rookie season. I'll see driving for us. They started give him small running in the in the twenty thousand ferrari so i believe he's probably on track right now is we recalled this idea. He'll be closing on friday morning as well for hunting over to test ally in the alternate yet very busy week for ferrari i think could challenge fans get some some running while they can and give the youngsters the chance to try and impress indeed jason. I was flipping joking about the two thousand eighteen. Our he's been lying around the maranello factory. Why why is wise ferrario. Which they there's some why haven't we seen other teams taking a similar approach. The regulations allow us to run a two year old. I think it's two year old cars called historic Or non non-current car. Testing of the terminology is in theory. You can run now this season this year. You can run a twenty nineteen car as i think alpha tori doing imola this week given yuki sonoda gas be there as well some extra running just to get up to speed get some mileage understand procedures and pitstops and ready to communication and settings Freud already had the two thousand eighteen car running. Last season didn't see much point in tweaking and changing and sourcing out one thousand nine hundred car when you've got two thousand eight thousand one there and there and ready and other teams in their their choice theory. There's not really much they feel. There's not much to benefit from doing it We saw last year just before this season got running. Some teams like renault did a test to the ring in two thousand eighteen car We know the other drivers like nikitas. Pain was doing quite a lot of testing in the mercedes. Private testing in an old mercedes previously. We've seen stroll do private testing as well in old cars so it seems do do it. Just i think the whole thing was is an important step is a team right. The very front and lewis hamilton had arrived there for someone you beacons successful as he is. That is still done. The same thing for him. Let's come on to our final topic of returns us to where we started in regards to the design rules for this coming year and and the new in inverted commas cars coming. I actually the story you wrote regarding mccaren. Switch back to running zaid's engines this year and its production director. Is the insane that this meant. It's twenty twenty. One challenger was essentially a new car. So it your story says Teams have to use development taken for major car upgrades which mclaren was forced to spend on fifteen the numerous eighties. Pao-yin having planned to switch for twenty twenty one before the carry. The two thousand twenty designs was announced while most teams have kept around sixty percent of twenty twenty calls for transparency warm mccarron has revealed that the scale of the mercedes power units which means the majority of his mc l. thirty-five chassis is brand new. So guys i'm gonna give you the same question and certainly because your story i'm gonna pick on. I'm just wanted. We just have a little bit of a thinking forward about what this big change. it mccown. Cause he's really significant. Change any point. I've i've one-season to another regardless of of the career. Roy for this year in particular changing changing an engine for a team. What do you think this means. In times of mclaren's prospects just twenty one does the does the change make it harder or easier for them to do well because you could say okay. Suddenly you've got a different engine that could give a significant boost quite literally in the power stakes in might as work better with the way that mclernon designing things or with so little chance as you explained in your story leaked to change things elsewhere on the call if something does go wrong. It's going to be very hard to get out of thought so yeah. Do you think that what's happening at mclaren ahead of the nieces and makes it easier or harder for them and twenty twenty one can see both sides of it but i think is the right move and i asked planned arse about the end of last year now says what was you. Leave you on the back foot. In those areas of the reasons he explained and and he said that ultimatum. The city's power unit is a better package so that was surely offer step forward and ultimately some teams such as ferrari for example. I mean they've they've been basically forced into where they've had spent their tokens also around rare of the car just because of the work to power unit which helps the isn't subject to the same kind of development. So it's a it's a similar kind of. I guess i think mclaren they are no point of they ever sort of settle. We really in trouble here or anything like that. And i think that the noises have been have been fairly positive and i get again. Something jodi eggington. 'bout that midfield fight and how close it's going to be between all the teams and i said mclaren if they've been forced spend those in the area does that leave them on the back foot and he said ultimately the aero with not a subject to the same kind of token system that still going to be king that's still going to be the dominant thing coming through the season in terms of how much should do you want to work on your twenty twenty one car knowing we've got this massive route change coming in twenty twenty two and that sort of jude development by believe we spoke about on this podcast a week ago. So it's a yeah. It's a challenge. I think mclaren. I think they're going to be in good shape. I think they've had may do a lot more work in a lot of work in.
"mercedes benz r d" Discussed on The Autosport Podcast
"Well we we got a lot of words for next year. It's going to be really close battle. I think i tweeted like well. You know louis is going to be thirty seconds. Clear in the opening chrysler or something like that. Because it's kind of just how things go. But i think that as john said though so it's been the mercedes mindset of what they're doing now no matter how dominant they are is never good enough that they've always got to continue to adopt an overcome any challenges thrown at them and they never ever rest on the laurels get complacent and i think that is being such a huge strength of the team throughout his stomach nation of formula one of the possible seven or eight years and i think that that's an cheat even as they get more and more successful and break more and more records. That's never gonna change. So i think really it is kind of it. Is maybe a bit of a broken record. Like d kaanai. Yeah whatever we've heard this before by the mercedes are also it's just part their mindset. They never ever want to think what they're doing is there is enough and they never want to get where the like. Oh yeah we're in good shape for next year and then when things do come crashing down and this kind of see that voting does come to an end because yeah. That's when you on your face so it's yeah. Speidel is an excellent video from james. Allison he's a fantastic orator in sort of explainer off everything technically in formula one and i thought yeah it was just a nice way salt leading to the new and i guess sort of get rid of this myth of the basically the same as last year and it's the same car mercedes might be just as dominant because as john said if red bull is able to reclaim that los downforce mercedes. Then we might. Well have a fight. The front but flip side of that is to say. I think spain was the last race that they brought any updates to one of the best spa august effectively. Yeah exactly so far enough ahead off to that. Not only crazy yeah. They've had all that time to already. So think about it so frank. My money is on anybody to accomplish that you would be mercedes. Really get explanation. That mercedes done. And i do this. You know after every race. They got james vows or allison again or andrew. Shufflings come on and explains of strategy. 'cause they made or why certain things didn't work as expected or or even better than that. They were trying on the car various races so john why what is what does he do this. What does he gain is just the fact that it it. It feels confident enough to reveal secrets. Because it's kind of it's kind of not the done thing informed and you know. I find it hard to believe that ferrari would potentially go down this route is is there a particular strategy corporate strategy that they're pushing with this or is it just the fact that they want to they want. This is what they want to tell their fans. This is how they want to engage with them. You're thinking you've got two options really as a media strategy and communication strategy when it comes to say formula some of those followed by lots and lots of people has such big interest. You'll ever pull shutters down completely an offer. Nothing or you go. Full hog like mercedes dozen. They do a fantastic job in doing it. In these regular explanations offering some insight. Now you can argue either to open. It gives away too many secrets that rivals can jump on it. but the reality is they. They say nothing that ended arrivals know about and the benefit does bring. You is sure on the good days. Plenty of stuff to talk about an on the good days. If you say nothing you'll still get the good publicity and the the good stuff. Brits the bad days where it makes a difference is today's where you mess up or you make a mistake. It will give mercedes a platform to explain things better. Because it's all done in context. Mr done in context of what they've talked about previously and also there's no none of filling in the gaps if team say ferrari two three years ago when they had a complete pointblank. Not people. Were speaking at all if anything happens. And there's a kind of a vacuum of information the gaps. Get filled and conspiracies can come out and go in the wrong direction and actually ends up being a big negative for the team. I think in the end. So let's say is can explain. Things is transparent. The friends appreciate it with the media. Appreciate it and i wish a lot more of a teams would would go down and be as open as mercedes were definitely. I think you saw that in and of the way the team approaches certain things that it's giving away about eleven months ago when was without stir. The first test mercedes was was very open. Knew exactly how it was gonna explain how it's going to prepare it. Probably definitely because then you how long it will take rival teams to copier and also because they will probably show where that point that the faa in which did pretty swiftly for twenty twenty one hour reminds everybody in that video that they will say farewell to data which is always very very novel interesting interesting thing that they adopted but if you had to pick one team to be as open as mercedes when it comes to it's a media strategy which one would you go for mclaren a pretty good in terms of being pretty open about things and phillies last year. I mean we got lots of brilliant access with Andrea sido james. Qui andress dealers while sort of talking about everything going on there. I think that's that that's really really cool. Sate go with mclaren interesting interesting okay. Well we We we await to see what you glean from mclaren in those makes them mature your feature. Yeah just just fun. Getting this cost lot. Let's move on to another area of the of the video. That i wanted to ask ask you guys about and and so it was a good explanation from james allison where he talks about the implications of the cost gap. Come to on but particularly goes into detail. On how the wings and cfd handicap will work. He says the challenge is being well if we are not allowed to use as much as all wind tunnel and our as we were previously. How could we adopt our world so that we get more and more of every single opportunity in that winds. We only got one running the wind tunnel. Let's make that run valueless possible if we are only allowed to do a small amount of cfd calculation. Let's make it so. That methodology and approach of these cfd calculations are as valuable as possible. So we've tried to adapt to our approach to this. So we mitigate or maybe even completely offset the effect of this reduction in the amount were allowed to use these fundamental. Who's so as interesting interesting point. The allison's making their regarding the hand capture some. Because you think on the face of it can just as it looks on paper. It benefits the teams at the back of the grid like williams like hassle alfa romeo to use these really really valuable toes to work and the idea being they can downforce whereas mercedes has less time to do it because it was successful. When obviously is allison says it's a sliding scale so the team. The second red bull has slightly more time and he goes on the grid as it were and john. Expect not to have much of an impact in two hundred twenty one or is it something to look for more forward to towards the new cars coming in two thousand twenty six. Yeah i i think this Handicap system or is it called aero balancing regulations or got some some funky name He's going to have a dramatic effect. Sinisa think now suddenly williams are going to have a huge aero advantage over. Everybody else in mercedes we be at the back..
Alabama Could Be Home To Amazon's First Unionized Warehouse In The U.S.
"Amazons first unionized warehouse in America. That groundbreaking prospect is playing out in an unlikely place Alabama if workers from a facility near Birmingham vote to unionize next month. They would turn a new page not only for the company but also the region. MPR's Alina Cell yuk reports long before the warehouse was even built. Local officials called it a game changer. Amazon is coming to the funeral of government, the city of Bessemer, Alabama, Birmingham's working class suburb, a shadow of the steel and mining hub. It used to be. Amazon jobs paying over double the local minimum wage, promised a shot in the arm. Here's mayor kind of Cali talking about Amazon's arrival on Birmingham, CBS, 4200 and 30 Year. History of the city of Boston market is the largest single investment. But less than a year after the facility opened, it became a different kind of game changer. Amazons First American warehouse to get to a union election. Next month, 5800 workers of the best more warehouse will begin voting on whether to join the retail wholesale in department store union. Here's President Stuart Apple bound for things that is most important for them is to be treated with respect, he says. Best in more workers reached out to the union quietly in the summer, describing ruling productivity quotas wanting more say In how Amazon staff work how they get disciplined or fired a support system mobilized from unionized workers around the region, many from poultry plants Within months, the union says more than half of the warehouse workers signed cards to petition for unionization, leading the National Labor Relations Board to schedule an election. I believe that the pandemic opens a lot of people size, they understand now better than they ever did before. That they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. Jim spits. Lee has wanted that voice for years. He works down the interstate from the best summer warehouse at a Mercedes Benz plant, and he's watching this Amazon vote with interest because his factory was the epicenter of the last high profile labor battle in Alabama. You know, That's what it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in 25 years. On three accounts. They came close in the 20 tens when the United Auto Workers Union tried to make inroads at foreign auto plans moving to the American South. They're coming here because of the fact that there is not fear of unions. You know, they're saying that we're just not educated, you know, country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care. Nothing. Anti union sentiments are comin around the region, Alabama and many states around it have right to work laws, which mean every worker can choose not to pay union dues. Here's Michael in this human is a professor of the University of Alabama. The billboard that I'll never forget. Do you want Tuscaloosa to be the next Detroit? You know there's still race in there, too, obviously, But, you know, seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming that on the union's spits lease plans never got a union election. At several auto plants in the region. Workers voted against joining the U A W even at folks Wagon and Tennessee, where the company welcomed unionization. Now specially wonders if an Amazon Union might shake things up. It'll it'll send not a tsunami ripple, but it it's gonna send one of all the Southern States Industry menace points out. Alabama actually has the highest percentage of unionized workers and best summer specifically has union history. Now It's a community that's predominantly black. The Amazon Union campaign is evoking social and racial justice themes, union president Applebaum says in the South labor and civil rights struggles have often been intertwined. We have a proud tradition of being involved in the civil rights movement, and we see the effort that Amazon at this warehouse is being a continuation of that. Amazon has argued that the workers pushing to unionize do not represent the majority of its staff's views. The company touts its pay and benefits and it's pushing to delay the election, appealing for the vote to take place in person instead of by mail, despite current virus concerns.

Mercedes reveals giant 56-inch, AI-enabled 'Hyperscreen' for upcoming electric car
"Listeners. It's brett molina and welcome back to talking tech. My co host. Mike cider is off today. Recently mercedes-benz announced plans for a fifty six inch curved screen that nearly spans the width of a new cars interior. That just sounds incredible. Saying it out loud. The hyper screen will debut the spring. And it's new electric sedan the mercedes benz s. It's part of a growing trend among automakers to make your car's function more like computers but are all these screens and other tech safe joining us now is money reporter and i believe green bay packers. Fan nathan bomi. Thanks for joining us brett. How are you. I'm good so you ask the question in your story about this topic and whether bigger is actually better what did you find out well. Fifty six screen is john. I mean we've never seen a screen like this in a vehicle and you know it depends on who you ask. Whether it's safe or not the mercedes benz says it safe and And safety advocates are concerned. I mean you know. The first company that really started to pioneer big screens and vehicles was tesla model s a luxury sedan and then later with the model three and other vehicles and they basically put a tablet screen at the center console in place of a lot of the old fashioned analog buttons but mercedes is taking this to a new level by basically extending the screen across the vehicle screen even now encompasses the instrument cluster. So this is a really a step toward bigger and bigger. And i think we're going to continue to see. Other automakers follow suit so it's weird hearing all these announcements about these giant screens and cars considering how much we've been told about smartphones in the dangers of having those and using those waller driving. How do automakers plan to tackle all these additional screens and cars. Well the most important thing is to keep people's eyes on the road that's really the challenge and so if there's a screening vehicle but you keep your eyes on the road it should be safe for the most part the problem of course with smartphones is oftentimes people are fumbling for them with their hands and they take their eyes off the road and then he ended up getting into an accident driver. Distraction is really serious crisis for this country and so we obviously want to avoid that here. Now when i asked the ceo of daimler on a conference call a couple of weeks ago how they incorporated safety concerns into the design of the hyper screen. He said that they actually designed it to ensure that people don't have to take the eyes off the road for example if ape. The passenger is looking at the screen. Has some sort of video plane on the screen In in front of them essentially in the front seat and the driver takes their eyes off the road and looks at the screen. The vehicle be able to recognize that. I've movement and stopped the film from airing on the front passenger seat Screen which is wild and then if you put your is back on the road than it keeps playing. This is some really high tech stuff. And you know we'll see if it works now at my understanding is that particular technology will not be in use in the us because of safety concerns here but it will be in use and other countries. I wouldn't be surprised if the regulations eventually change here to allow it so with all these fisted systems coming in cars. How long before this starts to change how we learn how to drive. I think it will you know. I think we're talking about things like augmented reality windshields being the next step. Where essentially you'll basically have a directions projected onto the screen that we if you've seen a new vehicle driven a new vehicle anytime recently you may have experienced what's called heads up display which is where. There's a tiny in a projected box. Bright above your instrument cluster on the windshield. That essentially will show you for example what speed. You're traveling but in reality windshield would project like an arrow onto the road head of you to say turn this way or that way and so. That's the next
"mercedes benz r d" Discussed on EV News Daily - Electric Car Podcast
"Really challenging and there's a high power charges going in. I'm while fifty kilowatts walls fine a few years ago and even i'm saying that someone who drives a car that charges on a twenty two twenty two kilowatt. Ac on the zoe. So i'm hardly wants to complain. Because i got a very slow charging ebay and it doesn't affect impact me rarely but still the wider picture. I do think a hundreds perhaps a little bit slow for a premium car. Maybe one two five one fifty at least a peak great. Look if if it's one hundred kilowatts pretty much holds that charge rate for the entire like the like the like the out each on. That's absolutely fine. If you are wanting to turn up a charger with a very low state of charge whakatane of juice into it. Let you do with a tesla that will go up to two fifty on a on a three supercharge that ramps down so quickly like that's the that's the absolute peak rate than it. Ramps down if you do need to go to a charger and just do that. It's great to have a fast charging even if the worst by use case with a lot of people get it. I know that you do you understand. I understand it as well use case. So if you want this to have any the y you are pretty much charging during some road tripping. You're going to get to eighty ninety percent all the time. It's no use having an iv that charges quickly to begin with but then goes down to a trickle. You want to charge the color charges quickly throughout the entire session if this does then all power to it. Pardon the pun a charging. Eleven eleven kilowatt. Ac charging three-phase that's pretty good north of sixty and eight point nine and again. I don't need to call the. Does that drive quickly anymore. Not ever really did. But in the world of ev is eight point nine. Is you gotta say for mercedes benz. A little bit slow. Even though this is the base model you know you're looking. At the nissan aria the new a new nissan. It's gonna come with the wheel drive the force technology. That's going to be five point. Something seconds nor to sixty. And that's the in this area the ladies benz during nine seconds. It may be a little bit tardy. It does toe up seven hundred and fifty kilograms important for some markets and it goes on sale from forty seven and a half thousand euros next month in february having a uk price having a us price. It may not come to the us. I'll get onto that now. Mercedes benz has recalled revealed the second model so the fcc was the first one very very expensive. The qc and Very luxurious. I mean a a gorgeous absolutely gorgeous cop edging out the soon to be revealed e. q. S we thought maybe the might be revealed but now the iki is the first one to be revealed. A small crossover and definitely a shape and size of car that many people are looking forward to to to adding a model. Why size an. Id four skoda skoda any ac. Iv kia a narrow kinda size car now. The relationship with its gla. Sister or cousin car is very clear. The guests number of unique design changes but it is a car based on a combustion platform made into an ivy has a power train. That's on par with the gla more impressive than its combustion-powered interesting though mercedes hasn't decided whether it will be offered in the us yet says also block so we cars like the bmw. I x three. Which is again based on combustion platform just an electric version stuffing batteries. Where they can that is not coming to the us. Something we'll say because the range is just not good enough for the us market and again to six five miles for this on wwl tv pay. Maybe that's two four five or two fifty when it gets an epa rating. Well you might ask. Is that enough. I personally think so sell in the. Us and people will buy it anyway. The driving websites driving electric driven already. And they say it's expected to be priced from just over forty thousand pounds in the uk. The qa is a premium offering with its sights set on the tesla model. Y rather than trying to be an enticing affordable car like the id four nevertheless it will appeal to a wider audience than the qc which fought too expensive for most people. First of all. It's very swift. It's compact good visibility characteristically eager and smooth delivery of electric power which is great for driving in city traffic. Not bad at all on a twisty country road. Out of its depth of they say a sustained high speed motorway. Cruising top speed is nine thousand nine miles an hour which i'm surprised about because again germany mercedes-benz the auto bahn people drive very high speeds. In places. there are no less than five levels of region to toggle between the strongest which allows for one pedal driving everywhere the lightest feels more like just kind of free wheeling and so they. I like that. I want more of that. I like to have complete control over that because again in slow town driving. I want one pedal driving but again speed. I want to be able to free. Want heavy region. It's more efficient to just kind of cruise a slowdown gently to read the road. Ahead of you to look further ahead to be a better safer driver when you let let you off the accelerator ozone the bright lights. Come on and you ford and you you know you thrust into your seatbelt because the region is is so extreme of course to get around that you're modulating your right foot which i find more of a hassle to drive eve as with with crazy strong region. So what do you think. Have a look at the pictures online. Send me your thoughts. I'll read out some of your opinions and thoughts. I'd love to hear from you on what you what you think of this. I the outside and again like i celebrate holidays. I love electric cars when we knew wants to talk about so i always give them the benefit of the doubt. I'm more positive negative. The outside i think you take off the flashy wheels they on for these press picks on some very average looking error alloy wheels or even some areas sales and you take away the jazzy pressure that they've kind of blood. Today's the impression of speed and it's a pretty bland average looking crossover shape. Isn't that just the shape. The everybody wants these days not me personally. It's not quite a con quite an suv. Like i think if you wanna call by a car if you wanna suv. 'cause your family all an lost after whole dogs guinness uv. This kind of not quite anything shape doesn't do anything familiar but they just sell everywhere around the world now and again. It's why it's the shape of the model. Y idee four scott any ac all of those costs and so i think you take away the glitz and the outside like the way is just a bit boring and bland with no real design on this. I think the interior because i like button not I need serious spectacular the the screens a big but not too big the nice little blue detailing inside is nice overwhelming the the materials look them not so much to attack you. I pace from these subscription company to the came straight from the factory as aspect eighty grand and like eat in the they they they send it to me to say. Hey you have a drive of this and try out of and i was like was done two hundred miles like snacks in the car. You know because it really felt like an eighty grand car and so it was. Everything was premium leather and soft and beautiful and so quiet drive base. And although i've been inside this mercedes-benz it looks like it's heading towards that level of interior luxury clearly. A few of the materials look like they've made some cost savings but this looks like it's a real premium in interior with just enough buttons to make the control of things like heating nice and easy not having to access a touchscreen but still be nice big screens in this and again. it's all. Subjective really appeals to me and so called white to drive one. Let me know your thoughts. Let's talk about the reynaud five which is coming and a follow up on a story i told you about. Bring him back the five nine for small city car and i mentioned by the time they hit the market in a couple of years time. The zoe will be long in the tooth. Is it going to be replacement justify up. There is some clarification on this. It will not replace zoey. They will sell both from red eye At the same time. The reasoning behind is simple. Zoe is europe's best selling electric car. And they want to keep that name plate going and so the run five inspire debate out in two thousand twenty three. We saw a prototype. Concept is coming along with the four as well. We wonder if i will maybe not sell the twingo. And they'll sell the full the five and the zoe we'll wait and see porsche next in the news today. Revealing new entry level cheapo bargain bucket version of the teich on this model joins the range with two battery options and for the first time in ticon two wheel drive and tycoon. Sales were second only to the mccann imported lineup in two thousand and twenty. It's been so wildly popular porsche. And that's why they are expanding the range and making the most of a good thing says the performance car website. Ego the new variant simply. Called tycoon is opening up. Its pricing thirteen grand less than the current two. Cheapest one seventy grand. What a bogging. So feel seventy thousand pounds. You got a eighty kilowatt hour battery or an optional. Ninety three point four kilowatt hour battery single motzer on the rear axle. The same motif found in the full s. Three hundred and twelve all three hundred seventy four break host pound depending on the battery size you to get some over boost for that so you do get in a shorter period of boost of almost four six nine break host power so it'll be a performance car. Despite the variation of peak power figures the performance of both battery options are identical in terms of the stats. Say five point. Four seconds not to one hundred kilometers an hour and going as fast as one hundred and forty two miles an hour. The entry level tycoon. We'll be the slowest. But it's also the one that goes the furthest it's going to have over three hundred miles on the wwl. Tcp test cycle and so again for those porsche drive on a drive along way without stopping up. He three over three hundred. Miles is great still a very expensive car tongue in cheek saying it's a cheaper version is cheaper obviously but not cheap. Let's talk about. Vw going head to head with tesla in china with a new electric suv. The full well. There's two versions of the four in china. Let me tell you how it works. Volkswagen has set the starting price of that locally built. Suv the id four now. They've got to partnerships in china because until tests there were allowed to build their facility. That wanted to go build an ev. In china to a joint venture and it was a way of bringing in knowledge to the chinese economy and the chinese market. There was no one hundred percent foreign owned. Ev makers until tesla were allowed into the country to build gigafactory shanghai. And now you can other companies can and have owned more than fifty percent but pre. Then that's why. Volkswagen have different partnerships in china. So this particular car is made in a joint venture with f. w. group again. A domestic chinese mike is fa w vw selling the id four for thirty thousand eight hundred dollars. Equivalent hundred ninety nine thousand yuan which is incredible a great price for the id four and a real play for the mass market and so much cheaper than even the cheapest of tests on sale vw does have a very good reputation in china and doesn't a lot of cars in china according to bloomberg the full Which is called. The id for cross is built on the same platform as the that sold in europe and the The us the platform and as audis and scott is being made on that platform. The the car is cheaper than tesla's way cheaper than tesla's recently launched model y which three three nine nine hundred You on so significantly cheaper and also eligible for subsidies the vehicle can run fell four hundred kilometers. That's two hundred and forty nine miles for the chinese might. Id full and vw will also a long range version which does five hundred and fifty kilometers for just two hundred and twenty thousand yuan now for comparison. The cheapest tesla sells the model three standard range. Plus that's the equivalent of thirty eight and a half thousand. Us dollars it'll go two hundred ninety miles the most expensive. If you spec the id four to its top levels and the biggest battery most expensive id. Four is even cheaper than the cheapest model three thirty seven and a half thousand dollars equivalent. Now the there's two. Id force me told you about this at the beginning. Let me tell you the. Id four x four. X has a few different styling trims and it is made by the s ic- vw joint venture. That's the four x then. There's the id full cross which is exactly the same as the european and us id four and that's made by hefei w. vw but both of those have a production capacity of three hundred thousand cars every single year. So six hundred thousand. Id fours a year just for the chinese market. When i talk about china. And i'll tell you all the time. The numbers are insane when when companies like vw have been putting all of this groundwork into building all these factories that they don't get the attention of some of the comics and ones that do get more at time impress. The numbers are just going to be overwhelming so big when they when they go. Ev that really gonna go for it and a massive capacity in these factories. The one we're talking about today. Say the fa wwe model for just over thirty thousand dollars equivalent. Getting the id four. Which i think is a great price for two hundred fifty mile car. And it's getting very very good. Eddie reviews we'll wait and see how the chinese take to it. of course. Tesla has a premium brands supercharging network. It's that that That brand the so many people aspire to at. How much does that make a difference as well looking forward to seeing how this plays out. I'm loving it at the biden. Tesla have lowered the price of the model three in some european countries. Germany and france as of today the price is reduced standard range pro plus went from forty three down to forty thousand euros. Long range went from fifty two and a half to fifty thousand euros in the pupo performance from fifty eight and a half forty five thousand euros now. In france there's a seven thousand zero subsidy You can get a vehicle for instance full a very very good price. Thirty four thousand euros say in france with the standard range plus model three now. There are some places as well in france that will give you a extra subsidy for trading in a diesel combustion. Couple before two thousand and six. I think you've always eat. You've got owned it for a while. She's gone by one few hundred yards and then try to. If you fit the criteria you will indeed get that money off and there are some other local regional regional benefits. You can get a tesla model. Three for under thirty thousand euros in some parts of france. If you tickle those boxes and finally again this like yesterday's mcdonnell story this one put a smile on my face.

It's already under production in gemini and will be available in european dealerships from early spring in the future.

Eleven am on the website. And i'll be watching so you don't have to next. Chevy is offering no percent financing on used boats in volt. I love this. I love us. Dvd's okay have any. Bought one of them in the past and conway driving the minute new. But i love the secondhand av market. And that's not just because you hear me talking about my dot com in the us. Just just because like i if once done with a car and they sell it on and somebody can have a second third. Fourth use is just better for the planet rather than building new stuff. And i love the fact that the us devi mark is becoming more vibrant by the day. If you're thinking about us devi general motors offering naught percent financing for five years. Seventy two months on a Chevrolet bolts av and chevrolet volt plug in hybrid Says caused direct. They started a bulletin sent dealerships last week. Which is just i mean. Not that. I'm advocating taking out money and owning anyone but if you all going to finance anything for six years over seventy two months did i say five six years of course Then i guess it nor percent look. Don't do it if you can't afford it. But i'm just telling you about the deal runs three feb first and typically you get these deals on even this good on new causes green car reports factory. Certified used cars are eligible dealerships may specify use caused their own standards but dealers satisfied. Vick was don't qualify for this deal. Deals on us. Models perhaps because the bolts currently limited to ninety percent of that battery capacity while gm and lg cam. The battery supply work on a solution to a small problem. Next the chinese make x. pong xiaopeng plans european expansion with the launch of its g. three crossover. Suv in norway. Expert is looking a further european countries to expensive the g. threes and interesting one. I watch as maybe you do your new orleans videos and he got the first drive of it and so i don't he wanna have district completely. It's chadema plug on. He has good reasons why you shouldn't have that an issue. Of course norway is with charging opportunities of every shape and size. I personally wouldn't buy chatham oka- i mean no disrespect to someone picking up nissan leaf tonight. The leaf is a great car. And there's plenty of those plugs around most of us charge anyway But i don't know that's just my opinion. Feel free to disagree like those china plucks on going anywhere for ten years. It's like it's like you can't judge a mental block. Maybe it's just me. But it comes with that plucks own because it's a similar size to the chinese plug and actually to make the hole in the side of the car is my nonscientific way of describing big fish. Ccs would mean redesigning the car literally and this crash test and things to go through and homologation so the puts you out of my own. I understand why but the g. three looks like an interesting wwl's ep range of two hundred and ninety miles a ex pilots. So it's pretty clever driver. Assistance is pretty cheap. Bungey like some of these chinese. 'cause i just tunnel is things off. g threes. Parking is pretty good says next green car.

Vw and reynaud these days bmw said that if you add in plug in hybrids They want a fifty percent increase in sales of twenty twenty and Token abouts how many fully electric cars they saw electrified. Actually that bmw did one hundred ninety three thousand last year. But of course tesla did five hundred thousand half a million all electric cars last year so a long way to go for bmw making thirteen electrified models right now. In seventy four markets bmw said on. Tuesday it's globally. Sales rose by third actually and so. The company met that european union emissions targets but some companies haven't volkswagen or a slight miss Man whoever was in charge of getting that d three outs as a difficult compensation.

Britt Lyle II on design
"Your host Maris cherry and this week. I'm talking with Britt Lyle the second a Motion Graphics designer here in Atlanta, Georgia. Let's start the show. All right. So tell us who you are and what you do. My name is Britt Lyle. I am a motion graphic designer. I'm a graphics assistant at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Now, I've been asking everyone, you know kind of starting off for these interviews how they're sort of holding up right now, you know, we're recording this right now in late September. It's pretty easy. I think well known that we're going to be in the states for a while. Now, how have you been holding up during this pandemic? Oh, wow, there have been like there been good days and bad days. I've been holding up generally well, but like there have been, you know good days and bad days. Like I said I tend to deal with anxiety sometimes so that has been kind of a struggle wage. Kind of cope with along with like just regular anxiety Then the election and covid-19. Like one of the things I learned in grad school is like you have to take time to for yourself, especially in stressful situations. And this entire year has just been one big stressful situation off. So it's very very important to like make yourself as comfortable as possible. Especially someone who like regularly deals with anxiety and off. Yeah, so I just basically just tried to make sure that if I feel like in some type of anxiety attack coming that I make sure to remove myself from the situation and ground myself before coming back to reality so to speak gotcha. Now let's talk about your work at sports and entertainment and can you kind of briefly describe what a MB sports and entertainment is and just sort of what is a regular day like for you right now since you're working from home, so am be Sports entertainment. We are sort of like a company within a company job. We do work for the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United. My job specifically is Graphics assistant. So basically that means I help out anyone else you need help with any other big project whether it's coming up with Gameday Graphics video editing color correction or any other regular or irregular occurrence. I might occur to you today. How did you get started there on a whim a lot of a lot of the jobs that I've gotten in particularly designed jobs of Applied on a whim. So I was laid off at my previous job, which I was very very sad about and I was just applying applying everywhere that I can and I saw the post for graphics assistant at a MB. And again, it was one of those things for me. It's like I can't in good conscience past this up and say Thursday. I tried everything that I could so I apply thinking that like I wouldn't hear anything and they turned out to be one of the few people that actually gave me like like three rounds of interviews and hired me within like a month. Nice. Yeah, so you mentioned, you know kind of working on these, you know, not random projects, but you kind of work on an ad-hoc basis as an assistance. So are there any sort wage projects that you like take the lead on or you always kind of working in that second kind of capacity mostly in a secondary capacity because there are people who have been there since the building open since as soon as construction ended they hired a design team and those and some of those people have left but there are still some people have been there since its Inception and they kind of know they build out the process. They're the ones who really like all the assignments all of the the dimensions birth. All the renders all of these little details. They're the ones who built it from the ground up and I'm essentially follow the process. I'll give my two cents every now and then if I feel like it'll help but for the most part they have pretty much have like a game plan laid out for how certain things are done and how certain things are processed. And so, you know, just so folks name Mercedes-Benz stadium in Atlanta is fairly new. I think it was opened and what 2018-2017 2017-2017? Okay, and then prior to that it not in the same space, but pretty close to it was the Georgia Dome that's where I used to work actually years and years and years and years ago. I worked for the Georgia Dome the the Georgia World Congress Center and since Olympic Park, so I'm familiar with that whole kind of campus area and I know back then I mean Georgia Dome all that is owned by the state, but Mercedes-Benz is privately owned. Do you know if off? Any of the the Congress Center staff works there also since it's so close not intimately like I think some people transferred but I mean as far as I know most people have been there since MBS was a thing. I'm not sure if any other people from Georgia Congress moved on to other projects, but I do know that they got a lot of different people from a lot of different places to kind of help build this team up. Yeah. I was just always curious about that cuz I still know a good number of people over there so long what's the best thing you would say about the work that you do? All of the work that I do is like kind of unconventional and well, I guess not unconventional like sort of a dimension sizes that I do that I work with like no one else in the world really works with these type of Dimensions cuz inside the stadium there's this song Halo board, and it's like six feet high, I think it's got like Fifty four thousand LED lights on it and the the file sizes and the dimensions that we work with are just pretty unorthodox and pretty wild to kind of like work with and when I first got started, you know someone I got trained in art school or just doesn't in designing was as the standard 1920 x 1080 and then suddenly I have to deal with sizes that are like fifty thousand nine fifty thousand five thousand or ten thousand sizes and it's kind of weird but it's also kind of cool cuz like you you kind of makes my portfolio stand out a little bit off and yeah, I guess that would be the best thing is that like I do I do the type of design that are very different than anyone else does and it may be kind of hard to put on social. Which is why I tend to put it on my website, but at the same time like not a lot of people can say they have designed the stuff that I designed and
"mercedes benz r d" Discussed on Climate Cast
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society transition to a low-carbon economy, Bank of America, NA, member FDIC. Ben's going carbon neutral. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul hunter. This is climate cast German automaker Mercedes Benz is the latest to make the move toward a carbon neutral auto fleet. The automaker pledges to change factories and vehicles to go carbon neutral by twenty thirty nine but how does a high performance automaker shift to a climate friendly fleet in just twenty years, I asked transportation analyst Mickey Mainur the business incentive for Mercedes. Is that Europe obviously there German based company is far far ahead of the rest of the world in getting serious about climate change. And so all companies, no matter whether it's McDonald's or Mercedes are under pressure to become more compliant. Mickey it looks like a pretty aggressive plan by Mercedes Benz by twenty thirty the German manufacturer aims to have electric and hybrid models. Comprise, half or more of total car sales is that real? Mystic in your eyes, a lot can happen in ten years. I mean, if you think back ten years, tesla was just in its infancy, and I remember in Chicago, that a tesla dealer popped up around twenty ten or twenty eleven and just how unusual that seemed and now they're tesla dealers in all parts of the United States, Europe, Canada Asia show. Ten years sounds like a long time, but it's too product cycles in the auto industry. And while you don't see massive change in one product cycle, you can see significant change into product cycles. It looks like part of the strategy for Mercedes is to use renewable energy to power some of their manufacturing plants is that part of the goal to get them to that carbon neutral designation. Yes. It's a two-part strategy. So it's the vehicle strategy at what comes out of the manufacturing plants. And then it's also the way those manufacturing plants are deployed, I've been in most of Mercedes. Major operations in Germany, and in Alabama, and in the last couple of years, there's really been a focus on leaning. Everything down fewer people less electricity. Less packaging coming in with the parts. It's going to take a lot of work. A lot of effort for these factories in Europe to become more climate neutral or carbon-neutral, excuse me, because they're big, and some of them are old even though they've been refreshing. And so I think for me I'm a manufacturing geek and I find this just as interesting as the vehicle side of it. I mean, if they truly can transform those factories, it's going to say a lot to the rest of the auto industry, author journalist educator and transportation analysts Mickey Maynard, thanks for your perspective today. It's my pleasure. Thanks for having me. Eric berger. I live in the Dayton's bluff neighborhood has Saint Paul. I'm an architectural, CAD drafter by day and a former BMW master technician, actually got in Devi ownership because the fastest cars out there and the efficiencies, nice bonus might decision to get an V kind of started with my actually buying a gasoline, Fiat, five hundred when they came to the country in two thousand twelve and then it was actually gonna upgrade to the faster one, but then actually found that Fiat Chrysler mayday compliance vehicle in the state of California, the five hundred electric and it was actually faster than the gas one that I was going to upgrade to. So I decided why not just put electrical service and my hundred and ten year old houses garage, which it had never had before. So I had the ability to get a fast charger, I own a fleet of eleven or twelve gas cars to in the fact that I show up anywhere, really in a little electric Italian car. They're like, what doesn't make any sense? But once people drive it because I tossed the keys on this thing to anyone. I've singlehandedly had three of my friends go out and buy this. Exact vehicle and a lot of others of Baden, tesla model threes. One bottle leaf yet really opens people's eyes are like, wow. There really isn't a compromise here. If you have x y and z in your life, it's not a compromise. There's really never a time where I can't plan around the cars range. So the electric car why I got into mainly because it was the fastest available in that body. But then it turned into the more conventional decision which I want to be kind of environment. Now, I'm fully on board with the whole electric vehicle movement and then green stuff. That's fine at cast. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul hunter.

"Bose to that much sort of say control and also information at any given time people's brains can handle that amount of information overload and so which really got to do is there to be very smart about when you excited to expose information in what kinds of a sort of controls that you offer and how do you dynamically sort of a change that interaction to sort of sort of be smart and that's very personalized rights was that something that we can sort of in the lab to design a sort of on our own and to give it to robot to every customer every must meets the same experience it has to be personalizes to adapt has become textile to show you a different sort of situations going on around the vehicle of times a day different sort of required cognitive loads so you're being lazy highway driving verses like oh god at city driving it is an intersection in this guy has come overflow over here and there was a construction worker and the line billions are all paid differently because a lot of cognitive load shift in the amount of sort of interaction and you why you want to expose to the user the might of interaction you demand from them is going to be different businesses that can excise asian and this is not something again that we can sit down in the lab sort of an eta workplace and sort of sort of mapping out and designed and in every usually get the same experience we we have learned this stuff is this is talking about uh looking at interaction data people using the vehicle people using our interactions taken that he to learning about them and then using what we learn about them to sort of expose these things to them and take in and take action a sort of on their behalf very interesting i'd love to know more about that kind of pipeline tell me about that source of data that car telemetry or there is by my mercy now don't have a mercedesbenz what.
