    I am a student at MIT. I am a junior in Mechanical Engineering and am taking a class called Venture Engineering taught bill Scott Stern and Bill Aulet. This is a project for that class.

    Sounds better. We have many people on here posing as this and that just looking to write an App. I'm not a trucker. I'm a software engineer working at a lab in Norwood, MA. I use to work at MIT in the 90's. Symbolics next door also. Office above Legal Sea Foods in Kendal square. F&T diner back then with the best greasy cheeseburgers.

    My specialty is Micro's and embedded systems. I'm assuming your talking maybe accelerometers, G forces sensors, GPS for speed? Stuff like that?

    Sounds like a good idea. Something telling the driver when to up shift and down shift? Adding 1mpg to your average would be a HUGE improvement.

    Once a trucker, always a trucker. Just because it was a seven year interlude between geeking and geeking, doesn't mean you're not a trucker.

    It's like being a douche...
    ok, bad example since @Skateboard never took a break from douchebaggery.

    The fancy new term one of our mid-management guys is trying out on us is "CVO." Commercial Vehicle Operator.

    He's kind of a putz.
