Paradigm Shifts in Transportation Architecture and the Role of Lightweight Design technical meeting

SAE BC will be hosting our 1st virtual technical meeting on Nov 23 at 6 pm. We are excited to hear from Gregory Peterson, CTO of Moon Wind Enterprises on the "Paradigm Shifts in Transportation Architecture and the Role of Lightweight Design". 

Mr. Peterson is a lightweight automotive expert with experience from Pontiac, CPC Advanced Vehicle Engineering, Daimler Chrysler SRT, and Lotus Engineering. He holds 14 patents and authored over 50 technical papers which documented a 30 % lighter Lotus vehicle and assisted in defining the US 2025 fuel economy standards. His presentation will discuss major shifts in the automotive industry and review a detailed lightweight design. We look forward to an interactive meeting with questions that will challenge our participants.

Stay safe, stay healthy, stay sane

As the world grapples with COVID-19, SAE BC will be postponing any activity until further notice.

We in the engineering community are often looked to when a problem arises, but in this time of great suffering, and with an invisible, biological threat, we understand your frustration of helplessness. We would suggest however that you seek to align your company resources to aid in defeating this pandemic, or at least blunting its impact:

Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay sane everyone! We look forward to seeing you again.
