Show Notes

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Today's guest is rising star, Mariya Frost. She's very outspoken when it comes to what would be deemed overreach and overspending of government agencies. Littered throughout the Washington Policy Center website, you can find her articles on transportation issues and policies. What's more, she partook in the pilot of the Washington state's road usage charge project. In this pilot, her driving activity was tracked as a means to test the waters of a mileage tax. The more you drive, the more you pay to the state to fund infrastructure and transit projects. Washington is one of the very few states to pilot this program to understand its potential and application in today's mobility society. Currently, she leads the Coles Center for Transportation for the Washington Policy Center. Their mission is to research and analyze best practices for relieving traffic congestion, with a specific focus on highway and transit projects, and how those dollars are spent.

Pay Per Mile Insurance feat. Austin Ledgerwood

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Pay per mile insurance is a usage-based insurance model where a driver pays only for the amount of miles driven. The price per mile is dynmically calculated and can be based off of odometer reading, GPS monitoring, or telematics data. In this episode, we hear from Austin Ledgerwood, Head of Strategic Partnerships, for Cover Genius. According to Austin, "There is always a ripple effect when change happens in an industry, and the auto and mobility space is no different. Ridesharing and peer-to-peer services have created a demand for usage-based insurance models, like pay per mile or pay as you drive, which offers drivers various incentives given how much they are driving."

Aztec Racing feat. Dani Phan and Austin Hoang

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Like many other industries, the future leaders in automobility incubate on college campuses across the United States. In this episode, host Dennis Wisco comes to you from the Aztec Racing Team workshop with Team President Dani Phan and Chief Engineer Austin Hoang at San Diego State University to kick off a series highlighting Formula SAE clubs on college campuses. Formula SAE is an international collegiate design competition that challenges student teams to design and manufacture an open-wheel race car during the academic year. There are two annual Formula SAE competitions in the United States that consist of three judged phases – Design, Performance, and Business. Because of this, to perform well, team members are expected to have not only high-performance racing vehicles, but also excellent project management, teamwork, and business skills. Aztec Racing is a non-profit student organization at San Diego State University that welcomes all current students at the school regardless of their declared major. Founded in 1994 with limited resources and low student interest, Aztec Racing has since gone on to receive many recognitions within the Formula SAE organization, including the SAE Perseverance Award for being one of the top three rookie teams at the FSAE West Competition in Fontana, California in 2008. This academic year, Aztec Racing was fortunate enough to receive increased funding from the SDSU Student Org’s allotted budget, which will allow them to make more creative choices with their entry, while still following a structured production cycle, use industry-standard simulation software to aid design, and use quantifiable data to justify design choices. In this episode, Dennis, Dani, and Austin discuss leadership in automobility spaces, design constraints of student-engineered racing vehicles, and hot topics in the ...
