  • JUL 19 -Autonomous Power Racing (APR) EVs; by Akin Shoyoye (Maker Faire)
    Thursday JUL 19, 2018, 12 noon Autonomous Power Racing (APR) EVs; by Akin Shoyoye (Maker Faire) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mayuri Indian Cusiine - 2232 El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA 95050 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Speaker: Akin Shoyoye, Autonomous Power Racing (https://www.autopowerracing.org/) Executive Director Akin is a s TEDx Navesink (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0y3p2KJ8AY) speaker, a mini-Maker Faire , and a co-founder of Drive AI (a community of engineers and scientists to develop the largest open data system to help creators develop cutting-edge technology, which they can use to create self-driving vehicles) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ In this EVEsv meeting, Akin will share his vision and plan for: • Building cars and robots more accessible for the YOUNGER GENERATION to learn. With his goal of fostering a more inclusive engineering community, he’s helped launch the autonomous racing segment to the Power Racing Series. (East Bay mini Maker Faire) • Open-source training for Aritifical Intelligence to the next level to create an incentivized and decentralized data system that will provide quality data and encourage everyone in the community to contribute quickly and easily, rather than a costly and high-maintenance centralized system. • Use of the Raspberry Pi computer system to build robots and cars for prototype testing of new Transportation Models. Come hear Akin speak while indulging in some yummy Indian Curry, tandoori chikcken, palak paneer, and many other delicious Indian delights. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ AGENDA: 1. 12:00...ATTENDANCE = $12.95 + tax (Food included with attendance -- consumption is not required) 2. 12:15..We'll start the meeting so we can get folks back to work (yes, we must). 3. 1:00 Close meeting.

  • JUN 21 -World's 1st EV charger w/ integrated INVERTER (Speaker Ryan Berglas)
    JUN 21 -World's 1st EV charger w/ integrated INVERTER (Speaker Ryan Berglas) SPEAKER RYAN: Ryan started in the PV industry 5 years ago selling residential systems to homeowners and has been with SolarEdge for the past two years managing a large network of small to medium size installers in over a dozen states. He is also a proud driver of a Chevy Bolt, which he charges at SolarEdge’s Fremont HQ, directly from the sunshine on the building’s PV system – from the very product he will be speaking about! DETAILS: For those who don’t know, SolarEdge is currently the leading residential inverter manufacturer, and is well known for being a leader in innovation within the PV industry with its unique DC optimization topology, grid-tie battery back-up & HD Wave inverter technology. SolarEdge has now entered the EVSE market with the first ever residential inverter with a standard Level 2 EV charger built in. What this means is that for folks who sign up to go solar they can enjoy a range of benefits, such as:  Parts and labor savings with this two-in-one combination  Potential avoidance of a main panel upgrade  Full integration with the SolarEdge monitoring portal  Standard 12 year warranty  “Solar boost mode” for faster charging  Option to go solar and be “EV ready”, i.e. buy the cable separately For solar installers, they will also find this product helpful to differentiate themselves in the market, close more deals, sell bigger systems and of course, help people charge their cars directly from the beautiful PV they’re installing! AGENDA: 1. 12:00...Pay $12.95 + tax EVEsv PRICING , then start your Buffet! 2. 12:15..We'll start the meeting so we can get folks back to work (yes, we must). 3. 1:00 Close meeting.
