Leon Henderson

Doktor at Chalmers, Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Vehicle Engineering and Autonomous Systems

Leon Henderson’s research focuses on the braking performance of trucks and other heavy road vehicles. Leon works closely with Volvo Trucks, providing expertise in the areas of: anti-lock braking, pneumatic brake hardware, brake system design, vehicle instrumentation and state estimation. Leon’s work with fast-acting pneumatic brake actuators was covered by the BBC in 2015.
