 Florida Atlantic University Lecture

Thank you for the splendid presentation in my “Inventive Problem Solving” class at FAU. All participating students, currently majoring in Engineering, Computer Science and Social Science (and of course the instructor), loved your talk. They were exposed to solving problems of different kind: given after-the-fact accident results, investigate “what happened”. These problems require environmental, vehicular and driving knowledge, as well as knowledge in several different disciplines, such as mechanics, electronics, and computers. On top of those, in investigating accidents, creativity, common sense, and imagination play a huge role.

In your presentation you skillfully managed to show the students how knowledge and creativity can be combined to achieve amazing results. You showed great concepts in a clear and concise way. Your real world examples, humor, and interactive lecturing made the presentation real informative, attractive and effective.



Risk Insurance Management Society Presentation 

I found the information you presented to be quite fascinating. It is amazing how you can reconstruct an accident using the various concepts and techniques you demonstrated.

Defense Case – Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority – REMSA, Nevada


We just recently were able to conduct a jury poll and the jury felt you were very believable. Jurors described you as “awesome,” that you “knew your stuff,” that you were a little robotic, but knew what you were doing, and that your testimony was “very impressive.” One juror felt that the ARGO [EDR device] was the most important piece of evidence, which you did a very good job of explaining. Also, one juror commented you were more comfortable in the courtroom than any other witness.

Regarding the expert witness fees, two (2) of the jurors commented that they did not expect you to be in Nevada without being compensated.

The Safeco representative who monitored the trial thought you were an incredible witness and one of the best she has seen.

If unable to promptly get a replacement and worried about what could happen in a crash, then you can request from NHTSA to install an airbag On-Off Switch. Here is the NHTSA link: http://www.safercar.gov/Vehicle+Shoppers/Air+Bags/ON-OFF+Switch+Requests

Airbag Recall Technology

Airbag Recall Technology

When the inflator assembly is activated, sodium azide produces nitrogen gas which flows through the filter screen and into the airbag. Time between crash detection and complete airbag deployment is approximately 0.05 seconds. Typical airbag deployment speed is 200 mph. If the inflator assembly is structurally defective the inflator assembly can explode,

GM Ignition Switch Defect

GM Ignition Switch Turns OFF

A fundamental problem with the design of this ignition switch assembly in that the key can easily rotate to the ACCESSORY position which turns off the engine.

Turning off the engine affects vehicle controllability and turns off the airbag systems.
