Several individuals have expressed interest in knowing who our team members are. We have several team members with expertise in marketing, battery technologies, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, design, and software development.
Battery Expertise - With years of experience in development of electronic systems and battery design, our team is made up of experts in battery chemistry, custom battery pack design, battery cell design, charging systems, and thermal management. Using our vast experience in these fields, we're developing a unique battery pack, charging system, and cell design to significantly increase charging speeds and maintain thermal efficiency while delivering a vehicle battery pack that can last an expected 10 years.
Electrical Engineering - Our team is made up of experts in high and low voltage systems, DC-DC, AC-DC, and DC-AC systems, battery charging, power supplies, more. Our electric engineering team has vast experience in developing ultra high efficient systems in high compact configurations. This expertise is what will help us succeed in developing a very low power, highly efficient, and compact vehicle drive systems for our Atlis Motor Vehicles XT and XP products. We expect to grow our team in 2018 as we look to bring in expertise in vehicle controls, infotainment, vehicle dynamics, propulsion and traction control systems, self driving technology, lighting, instrumentation, and beyond.
Vehicle Body Engineering - We are quickly developing and acquiring internal and external expertise in vehicle body structures. Team development will be centered around designing for manufacturing, designing for safety, and design for quality.
Vehicle Design - We have two designers on staff, and an expert vehicle designer waiting to come on board within the next 2 months. With these 3 individuals Atlis Motor Vehicles will be able to rapidly accelerate our design efforts as we work towards development of our prototype Atlis Motor Vehicles pickup truck.
Software Engineering - Atlis Motor Vehicles has internal software expertise in embedded systems, high and low voltage systems, as well as battery management systems. As part of our continued progress for 2018, we will be bringing on more team members to help develop our vehicle propulsion systems, vehicle dynamics, infotainment, and instrumentation, sensors, as well as integrations for outside partners in autonomous driving technologies.
Interior and Comfort - We recognize that there are a large number of external experts in development of interior and comfort components for vehicles. Once we have finalized our design concepts for the vehicle interior, we will be engaging with external partners to develop seating, safety, and other comfort systems.
Vehicle Dynamics - Vehicle dynamics such as steering, suspension, traction control, and other systems will be developed in partnership with external vendors. Atlis Motor Vehicles is currently developing an internal team to lead this development effort with the help of external expertise.
Vehicle Manufacturing - Atlis Motor Vehicles has several open positions available to lead our vehicle manufacturing development team, and will update this information as we identify and find such individuals.
Team Size today: 5 people
Expected team growth: We expect to grow our team size to 50 people through 2018 and into 2019.
