Erik Coelingh is an Adjunct Professor in the Mechatronics research group, and a Senior Technical Leader for Safety and Driver Support Technologies at Volvo Car Corporation. His research focuses on algorithm and system design for active safety features for collision avoidance by means of e.g. warning and automated driving; automatic emergency braking and steering. He also works on the design of driver support features to take over part of the driving task, as in e.g. adaptive cruise control, automatic parking and autonomous vehicles. The vision is to design cars that do not crash and ultimately can be driven fully automatically.
