Yeah, I didn't know about the pumping issue. I just assumed that it was the panic period of sudden acceleration that was causing problems. This is even more scary because even though I'm a fairly calm person, I could see my self falling victim in this scenario.

I agree with Frank. Great video. If you haven't watched it, take a minute. So, where did we learn to pump the brakes? I remember doing it on my first car (77 Pontiac Sunbird), but I don't remember when or why. (I also had to keep my foot on the gas and brake to keep it from stalling at red lights, but that's another story...)

I won't be able to attend the chat, but thanks for posting the eye-opening Consumer Reports video. Every driver should watch it!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
