Chris Van den Brink and Harry Kroonen, aeronautical engineers at Brink Dynamics, one of the Eurotool companies, put on the paper the Dynamic Vehicle Control (DVC) concept which automatically translates the "car type steering" input into an optimal "motorcycle type banking" of the chassis. After two years, the first vehicle wearing this concept was born, impressing the world. In 1997 the Dutch police got a three wheeled prototype of this "strange moto-car" and the machine got the OK signature for road use. Year after year, the prototype was improved and restyled, turning into the Carver One.
