PROBLEM NOTES AND UPDATES

Problem C: A self-driving car does not have a driver, and is instead guided by internal computers using internal or possibly external sensors. A cooperating car communicates and exchanges data with other cooperating self-driving cars as it decides what to do. The seating capacity of a vehicle is not affected by the guidance system. The specifics of these behaviors are for you to model or assume.

Problem C: The database files will be compressed for size but the file size could still be 100mbs or more. For 2017 the database supplied is only 20KB and is the one found in the problem.

Problem D: Dataset, each column of data is independent of the others as the timing data were collected as several groups of people were coming through the screening process. As in all good modeling, make assumptions about how you interpreted the data set and state your assumptions in your report. The time data for columns A-G are in the format 00:00:0/MM:SS:hundreds of seconds and column H is in the format 0:00/M:SS.
