What if the movements as small as a grain of salt could be detected in vehicles? This week, we take you into the world of sophisticated technology with our esteemed guest, Alex Qi, CEO of Pontosense. Alex gives us an in-depth look at their cutting-edge vehicle sensors capable of picking up movements as tiny as 0.3 millimeters, and shares how these precise measurements can offer vital insights into driver safety. However, it’s not all just tech talk - we also address the important ethical questions around privacy that emerge with such advancements.

In a dramatic shift, we'll leave no stone unturned in our exploration of the humble but critical, brake fluid. We'll guide you through its vital role as a force multiplier and unravel the mystery behind its ability to withstand sweltering temperatures. Delving into the nitty-gritty, we debate the differences between DOT 3 and DOT 4 fluids and the consequences of mixing the two. Plus, we ensure you're in the know with the top manufacturers' recommendations for changing brake fluid and clutch fluid.

Finally, we wholeheartedly invite you to join the In Wheel Time car talk community. Every Saturday from 8 to 11 am Central, we go live to bring you a blend of insightful automotive guest interviews, new car reviews, popular features like Konrad's car clinic, and a trip down memory lane with 'This Week In Auto History'. It’s all happening on, the iHeart app and on YouTube. So come on over, we’re ready to welcome you to our automotive car talk family!
