Autonomous Rush

I'm currently in Utah doing an internship at Autonomous Solutions. It is a robotic's company that specializes in automating vehicles of all types. The other day we were down at the airport in Logan doing some high-speed tests of our kit on a Ford F-150. Ford is using the kits on their proving ground test tracks for durability testing (when they drive over huge potholes non-stop for weeks on end etc, they have to switch drivers out every 3 hours or so. With our kits they can drive continuously with no operator...). Anyways, we are supposed to get these up to 80 mph and eventually faster, but the day I shot this we were doing tests at 60 mph.

This is also one of my first attempts at a panning shot that actually came close to working!  It only took about 150 shots to get this (and maybe 2 other ones that are almost as good)...  Now I just need to remember to frame the moving subject with something other than my middle focusing point, so the whole thing will be in the frame!
