I am an industry expert for ADAS, autonomous driving, sensors and computer vision with more than 10 years of professional experience and 4 years of consulting experience in the autonomous driving space. I currently work as a Professor at a German University where I research and teach in engineering.

During my time with a German OEM, I was responsible for the development and testing of new ADAS functions as project manager. Before joining said OEM, I worked for a German Tier-1 supplier as a camera and computer vision expert in corporate research.

I am concerned with the major building blocks of autonomous driving technology (e.g. sensors, processors, HD maps, AI, telecommunication). As part of my job, I regularly consult on these topics, providing technological deep-dives and trend forecasts on all major technology areas.

Also, I can assess and compare most relevant OEMs, suppliers and startup companies in the driverless vehicle space as well as elaborate in great detail on current and future challenges of autonomous vehicles, market outlooks and disruptive technologies.

My experience is based on positions in corporate research and in advance development with Bosch and VW, on current research at university and on several years of technology consulting (including in-depth written reports and keynote talks) in the driverless car space.

Expert has lent telephone consultations and extended projects on topics within his primary areas of expertise.
