Junior Automotive Technician Brodie Davison

Brodie is a 3rd year Mechatronics & Computer Science student studying at Curtin University. "I fell in love with the magic of making Silicon do cool things when I started programming and have been engrossed ever since. After far too many hours staring at a screen, I've come to enjoy the link between Silicon and the real world more and more and became involved in FPV drones amongst other robotics of late. It's always a thrill having pure code come to life and claw its way out of the Silicon, what better a way to do that than by giving cars a new life!". Brodie is using his skills to develop control boards for our vehicles.
