Team


Many people have made important contributions to the project. At the great risk of missing key people, a list is attempted below.

As of May 2015 we are highly focused on getting our OBI 2.0 prototypes functioning in a pilot system. The active technical team includes Kevin Bross, Cailan Collet, Chris Crase, Barrett Hafner, Will Henderson, Vittal Kini, Jeff Murry, Joe Schutz and Scott Smith. Our partners at Axiom Electronics, with Lynnda Sorenson coordinating, are playing a critical role. Leonard Cano, John MacArthur, Courtney Martin, and Jenny Cadigan are actively engaged on non-technical matters. Paul Burd has created some gorgeous graphics for us. Brad Biddle plays an overall coordination role.

Significant assistance with the OBI 2.0 technology (mechanical design, electronics and software) has been provided by: Carter Anderson, Jeff Eirvin, Matt Groener, Aslam Haswarey, Mustafa Haswarey, Brian Jensen, Greg Perry, Bill MacCracken and Bianca Viggiano. Joel Morrisette made huge contributions to the technology, as well as our OBI 1.0 pilot, and designed our logo.

The OBI 1.0 technology was developed primarily by John Benner. The OBI 1.0 pilot was managed by Robinson Eaton and Meera Gajjar, and they led the creation of our documentation. Mike Armstrong, Garrett Beecher, Giedre Novikaite and Mordechai Sadowsky made key contributions.

Intel provided support and resources that made the project possible, and many team members are volunteers affiliated with Intel. Special thanks to Ann Armstrong, Todd Brady, Michael Jacobson and Anne Marie McSwiggan. Individuals from the Bicycle Transportation Alliance (Rob Sadowsky and Stephanie Noll), the Community Cycling Center (Jonnie Ling and James Keating), Nike (Caitlin Williams and Josh Capps), Portland State’s Transportation Research and Education Consortium (Hau Hagedorn and John MacArthur), and the Westside Transportation Alliance (Heather McCarey, Jenny Cadigan) helped create the project and have provided critical support.

Thanks also to our friends at Advanced Sports (Breezer), Bikes Make Life Better, Custom Contract Manufacturing, Eagle Precision Sheet Metal and Urban Racks for their support.
