At Volvo Cars his role is to identify and define future leading edge safety needs within crash avoidance. His role provides leadership in safety analysis and research, supporting development of safety requirements and strategies and to drive human related aspects of safety design in a broader perspective, using the possibilities with new active safety functions and systems. For example he is responsible for safety in Volvo's self-driving car program Drive Me.
