Carlo van Driesten currently works at BMW AG as Systems Architect for virtual Test & Validation of Autonomous Driving. He is an open-minded personality with broad interests in business development around "Virtual Test & Validation" and a deep knowledge in environment sensing "Sensor Modelling" is always searching for common interests and the integration of value adding products in a common and standardized simulation architecture.
During his time at BMW, Carlo has authored the Open Simulation Interface (OSI) - an interface for the integration of environment perceiving sensor models. He has also established the “OpenX” at ASAM e.V. as the basis for all standardized interfaces and data formats for virtual test and validation of autonomous driving and created the “ENVITED Ecosystem” at the Automotive Solution Center for Simulation e.V. as the first Distributed Market Place for Simulation Data & Models for L4+ Autonomous Vehicles using novel blockchain technology as an enabler. Prior to BMW, Carlo worked in software development for Rohde and Schwarz, and graduated from TU München with an M.Sc in electrical engineering and information technology.
