  3. 3. Get Briefed <ul><li>Select your vehicle’s maker to Research & Design a specific make & year: Ex: Mazda 6 2007 </li></ul><ul><li>Audi BMW </li></ul><ul><li>Chevrolet Chrysler </li></ul><ul><li>Ford GMC </li></ul><ul><li>Honda Hyundai </li></ul><ul><li>Lexus Mazda </li></ul><ul><li>Nissan Toyota </li></ul>Congratulations! You have been hired by your favorite car/truck company! Your job is to ensure that safety features are well designed and implemented. It is very important to recognize and evaluate different types of safety features and systems within vehicles today. Customers are not going to purchase vehicles if the crash rating is low! Your salary depends on how well your research and design proves to be. Will your car survive the crash and earn you a 98K salary? NEXT
  4. 4. What’s in YOUR Car? <ul><li>U.S. Transportation Secretary said “the number of people killed in traffic crashes is expected to reach a new record low in 2008,with projections showing an almost 10 percent drop in highway traffic deaths over these first 10 months of 2008.” Reported data shows that 31,110 people died on US roads from January through October 2008, compared to 34,502 in 2007. </li></ul>WHY?
