Jonas has been in Active Safety since 1985, first with SAAB Automobile in Trollhättan, Sweden. He joined the Volvo Car Corporation in 1994 where he was responsible for Volvo's first application of Electronic Stability Control. Next challenge with Volvo was the Automatic Emergency Braking development where he pioneered the advanced engineering activities for City Safety and Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Braking. He was part of the team that put the world's first automatic collision avoidance by braking system in series production (Volvo's City Safety on the XC60 in 2008). Then, he started research activities in the self-driving area and co-conceived the "Safe Road Trains for the Environment" program that focused on platooning. Public demonstrations in 2012 showed that end users were interested in energy saving, but totally loved the concept of automated driving in highway situations. That inspired to start the Volvo "Drive Me" research program, intending to understand user needs in a highly automated vehicle. Jonas has held line management as well as technical specialist positions in Volvo Cars and recently Zenuity, and he is currently responsible for all activities related to early technology development in Zenuity. His ultimate vision is to develop technology that enables a collision-free traffic system. "It is relatively easy to build and demonstrate a self-driving concept vehicle, but if you want to create an impact in the real world, you have to design and produce a complete system that will be safe, robust and affordable for customers.” Jonas has a track record of providing solutions in the following areas: • Algorithm & System Design • Vehicle Safety Technology • Autonomous Driving Software • Emergency Braking & Driver Assistance • Technical Leadership.
