I think with modern LCD instrument clusters steadily becoming the default choice for most cars, what I want to talk about today is something that is well on its way to extinction. Objectively, this isn’t a bad thing, as what I’m talking about are things that have no actual use or purpose beyond reminding a car’s owner of something they do not have.

By Dr. Peter Plantes

The extreme challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic have forced extraordinary responses at multiple levels. However, as micro-communities like workplaces and schools are reopening, it is imperative that their highly granular data needs be met in ways that are useful to leaders that are not statisticians. Individuals spend their days moving between multiple micro-communities, raising the risk for infection in each. In fact, research suggests that one-third of viral respiratory infectious disease transmission occurs in schools and workplaces.¹ As such, significant precautions are required to prevent rapid spread of infection among and between micro-community populations.
