Thomas is a member of the FFI project Situation-based integration testing of automotive systems using guarded assertions (SAGA) that aims to study how to reduce the test effort, but at the same time increase the amount of tests executed. The types of testable systems are also part of the topic, e.g., how shall functions provided by ADAS be testable in a HIL setting, and situation-based is believed to be a key enabler for this.

However, throughout his diverse career, navigation and telecommunications always have had a central role – from the first tactical map in the Navy in 1989 to the high definition maps presently used to support highly automated driving (HAD). Petter has worked in various positions; as a navigator and warfare officer, project manager, team-leader, country director, sales director and more. He is highly interested in business development and have designed many products and concepts for the companies where he has been employed. At present, Petter is working as Account Executive at HERE Technologies for Nordic automotive accounts.
