In early 2009 Roundarch and Tesla Motors partnered together to work on concepts for the Tesla Model S in-dash experience. The prototype used a framework that Adam co-created called Merapi. This framework enabled the dash user interface (an Adobe Flex/AIR application) to integrate with hardware in the car.
Adam helped implement the ideas Tesla and Roundarch conceptualized. This code was deployed into the working prototype car, which was showcased at many conferences featuring the early Model S. Adam worked with Dave Meeker, Zach DeBord, Greg Balmer and other colleagues at Roundarch on this project.
