A SAFER doctor has graduated: Daniel Åsljung

Dec, 06 2022

"On Statistical Methods for Safety Validation of Automated Vehicles" is the title of Daniel’s doctoral thesis, a work that is of interest for many SAFER partners. He successfully defended his thesis today at Chalmers University and is now a “SAFER doctor”.

Daniel’s research is based on theory and methods around the verification of autonomous vehicles. Since autonomous vehicles need to be able to handle all situations that may arise, this places significantly higher demands on their verification. New methods are therefore needed to be able to verify security in a more time-efficient way.

Daniel Åsljung is a PhD student in the Mechatronics research group at Chalmers University, in collaboration with Zenseact. The opponent at the defense was Prof Dr. Simon Burton, Fraunhofer IKS, Germany. Daniel’s main supervisors has been Prof. Jonas Fredriksson, Chalmers University of Technology and Carl Zandén, Zenseact.

We wish Daniel good luck in his future career and hope to continue to learn from him!
