Fredrik von Corswant (MSc, PhD), Director
Fredrik received his PhD in Technology Management in 2003 where he studied supply chains and collaboration between automotive companies in product development. He then joined Volvo Trucks where he during more than eleven years held several different project manager and line manager positions within product development and production management. In 2015 he was appointed director for Revere and has to date been involved in many research projects on vehicle automation, active safety and vehicle dynamics. Fredrik also has extensive experience from research and development of new technology including for example hybrid drivelines, fuel cell technology and high-capacity transport vehicle combinations.
Arpit Karsolia (MSc), Research Engineer
Arpit received his M.Eng degree in Automotive Systems from HAN University of Applied Science (Arnhem, the Netherlands) in 2014. After post-graduation, he joined Statens Provningsanstalt in Borås as an Engineer working on driving simulators. In 2015 he took up the position as a Research Engineer at Revere. He has experience in testing and validation of autonomous vehicles including both passenger cars and heavy vehicles.
Christian Berger (MSc, PhD), Research Engineer
Christian is Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Gothenburg, and received his Ph.D. degree from RWTH Aachen University, Germany, in 2010. He coordinated the research project for the vehicle "Caroline", which successfully participated in the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge. He also co-led Chalmers Truck Team during the 2016 Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge (GCDC) and is one of the two leading architects behind Revere’s software platform OpenDLV. His research expertise is on distributed real time software, microservices for embedded systems and cyber-physical systems, and continuous integration/deployment/experimentation for embedded systems.
Ola Benderius (MSc, PhD), Research Engineer
Ola is Associate Professor of Autonomous Mobile Systems at the Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. His research focus is mainly on biologically inspired AI for autonomous vehicles, both inspired by human driving and deep neural functions connected to self-motion and machine operation. He did in 2014 find the solution to a 70-year old mystery connected to human control and the so-called remnant within control theory, by using inspiration from biological studies. In 2015 he joined Revere where he is currently leading research connected to autonomous driving, computer vision, software engineering in cyberphysical systems, and next generation HMI for both road and marine vehicles. Ola is also is one of the two leading architects behind Revere’s software platform OpenDLV.
