I witnessed an accident involving an autonomous vehicle in the 90s... which led me to mechanical engineering and ultimately to the automotive industry! ------ It all started with a small dc motor. I know what you are thinking... What about the autonomous vehicle in the 90s? It was an autonomous vehicle but not life size let's say... Fine, it was a small toy car ok! Coming back to the dc motor... You see, as a child, I had a favourite toy car - with big wheels & flashy red colour. and one day, while testing its off-road skills, I let it drive down the steps... No biggie right? Only the steps were going down 2 floors & with them my favourite red car also went down - quite literally. I ran, suspecting a massacre and was not surprised. There it was, still in its red glory but only in pieces now. That was the day I first felt the pain of heartbreak. But there is a silver lining - that was also the day I fell in love with cars, weirdly because of the dc motor! In that mess, I found a tiny motor which was running the entire show. I immediately ran to my dad demanding to know what it was & how it works. "It's a dc motor buddy, it runs on these batteries & powers the car" "Huhh?" my face was literally a big question mark. "You see it's like your heart. So the food you eat is like batteries running your heart - the dc motor...which in turn helps you run, got it?" "Ya kinda...so batteries are like food for these cars" I tried smelling one of the batteries. Dad quickly grabbed it from my hand & said, "Ya but only for cars...not for humans, OK?" I nodded. "Let's not tell your mom about this analogy also" "Ana..what?" "This example of batteries as food for cars, ok?" "Ya ya, got it. But dad, this will not work now?" I pointed at the messy wires. "Why not, here lemme show you..." And then he joined some wires, placed the batteries in the slot & told me to switch on the small button. I obliged and voila! the motor started working! and this is the story of how I fell in love with cars! After that incident, I used the hell out of quite a few dc motors & pencil batteries. That's part of the reason why our wall clocks were never in a working condition! ------- Completed high school with flying colours as they say & got into mechanical engineering - duhh! and since last decade, working in the automotive industry in R&D project management. --- As you can tell by now, I'm passionate about automotives & in love with storytelling. Here to combine both! Drive safe and keep reading. Don't do both at the same time though! Cheers, Raj
