Tucked inside a small pedestrian office mall in the trendy Gastown district, Saturna Green is trying to take the anxiety out of driving all-electric vehicles, specifically electric scooters by a novel mashup of display technologies, ARM processors and clever algorithms.
Clive Wright, the senior vice president of engineering, showed off an application of the technology on a warm, sunny day here and then described the engineering challenges he and his team faced in building a product that has to deal with so many environmental and user considerations.
He also talked about how the project has pushed him out of his own engineering comfort zone!
