Thank you.  There is a whole saga to go with the creation of it, but not for public consumption. You can reach me through the root page if you are curious.

ALL I REALLY NEEDED TO KNOW

Dave--very interesting.   Star Trek was "THE" program for future engineers when I was growing up and going through school.  We knew that with the proper educational background, work ethic and resourcefulness, any problem could be solved.   As you mentioned, all of this was created with individuals of varying ethnic backgrounds.  This is one thing Gene Roddenberry demanded from the scripts--diversity.  I also enjoyed the fact that he used individuals with differing skill sets in contributing to solutions. They all worked together.  (Wonder if any members of Congress ever watched the program.)

Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
While risk management sounds like one activity, in order to be conducted effectively, it must be broken down into three sub-components: risk assessment, risk monitoring, and response planning.
While many larger companies are still reluctant to rely on wireless networks to transmit important information in industrial settings, there is an increasing acceptance rate of the newer, more robust wireless options that are now available.
To those who have not stepped into additive manufacturing, get involved as soon as possible. This is for the benefit of your company. When the new innovations come out, you want to be ready to take advantage of them immediately, and that takes knowledge.
Design engineers will feel like kids in a candy store with the Cypress Semiconductor BLE Pioneer Kit. The development kit for low-power sensor-based systems is full of wireless wonder and exploration.
