  • Speakers & Abstracts

    Dr. Jan-Erik Källhammer

    Veoneer Sweden



    Jan-Erik Källhammer has 20 years’ experience with automotive active safety development. He was responsible for the inception and development of a Night Vision Drivers Vision Enhancement based on an uncooled long-wave infrared camera. The system is now on the market in Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Mercedes, Peugeot, and some luxury cars. Current works focus on visual enhancement in darkness and inclement weather (Night Vision, LIDAR, gated imaging). Key aspects are functional specifications, coordination with technology provider, suppliers, and customer contacts.

    Jan-Erik started 30 years ago with Machine Vision in automotive manufacturing at Borg Warner Corporation in Des Plaines, Illinois. He has also several years of experience with high-speed cameras and data analysis in automotive crash tests. In 1995 he joined Autoliv AB, Sweden – the world’s largest supplier of airbag and seat-belt systems - responsible for corporate funded research and development projects. There he launched active safety in the late 1990s. He is now with Veoneer – the electronics spin-off from Autoliv.

    Jan-Erik has a Ph.D. in Cognitive Systems from the department of Information and Computer Science at Linköping University, Sweden, an M.S. In E.E. from Duke University, and a M.S. in M.E. from Luleå Technical University, Sweden. Jan-Erik has co-authored 26 articles and conference papers and has 19 patent proposals or granted patents.


    Supplying Photonics to Automotive, A Perspective



    Work is underway to complement cameras and radar with LiDAR in serial automotive use.
    There are many considerations besides technical challenges to be made before photonic sensors such as LiDAR can be launched as a serial product for the automotive market.
    The talk will cover Veoneer – who we are and what we do, considerations on LiDAR requirements, and what it means to supply the automotive market.


    Torbjörn Norberg

    Product Manager, Pharmacolog AB



    Torbjörn started at Pharmacolog in 2018, with over 20 years of managerial experience within the domestic and international Life science industry, from large organizations to small start-ups within the medical technology and diagnostics sectors. His strengths including product & process development as well as quality regulated laboratory work. Torbjörn also have a university degree in microbiology/molecular biology and a PhD in experimental oncology.


    DrugLog® – Spectrographic analysis of pharmaceuticals in the medical care process




    Pharmacolog AB is an Uppsala based company that provides solutions and products that enhance both work efficiency and safety by preventing errors of medication in patients treated with powerful yet potentially harmful, injectable drugs.  The current main product is DrugLog® which utilizes a spectral analysis of a small liquid samples.  These samples are compared with pre-set reference liquids, thereby determining drug identity and sample concentration.

    DrugLog® is a CE-marked Class 1 medical device and is currently used throughout Europe.  The devices are mainly used in hospital pharmacies to prepare cytotoxic drugs for oncology as well as pharmaceuticals for pediatric/neonatal care.

    The DrugLog® device is assembled by a Pharmacolog partner in Linköping on demand, with the product and software development located at Pharmacolog headquarters in Uppsala.

    Pharmacolog will soon launch two new products to further expand its product portfolio.  PrepLog® is an integrated solution for the medical care process while WasteLog® is a system for detecting drug diversion (USA).

    3D Visualisation from combined X-Ray CT and Fluorescence - giving geologists new Insight



    Orexplore is helping geologists worldwide by increasing the quantity and quality of data that can be extracted from rock or drill cores. The method used is a combination X-ray Fluorescence (XRF), weighing and Computed Tomography (CT). Main applications are mineral exploration and ore deposit modeling in mines. The GeoCore X10 provides insights into 3D structural data, element concentrations and rock densities. EU Horizon 2020 is supporting the X-mine project.
