    The team is born

    Dan, Pranay and Jimmy first meet in 2005 after enrolling in Engineering at Western University in Canada.

    Dan, Pranay and Jimmy became friends after joining the SunStang Solar Car Project at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada. While studying Mechatronics Engineering the three went on to lead the SunStang team in the design and construction of a carbon fiber solar car capable of speeds over 100km/h on the power of the sun alone.

    The foundation of the Linc hardware was also built during this time. The team needed a way to remotely monitor and manage the power flow within the vehicle. The solution was a radio based power management unit developed from the ground up which would form the basis of Linc ten years later.
