Anna Carlsson (PhD/MSc/Med), Director
Anna Carlsson holds a PhD in Machine and vehicle systems and a MSc in Engineering physics. She combines her position as Director of Revere with her role as Project manager at Chalmers Industriteknik.
Anna defended her dissertation in 2012 with the title “Addressing Female Whiplash Injury Protection - A Step Towards 50th Percentile Female Rear Impact Occupant Models”. Together with Folksam's Research Department, she has ongoing projects focusing on whiplash-related injuries and protection systems. She is a member of the Swedish Transport Administration's collaboration groups for Safe mobility for pedestrians and cyclists . Furthermore, Anna participates in collaborations on safe mobility for the elderly and people using mobility aids. Anna also has a background within the vehicle safety industry as a crash test engineer.
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.
