Today in a Talk with Joachim Oberhammer – 5 questions about himself and the Car2TERA H2020 project.
Introduce yourself and tell us a bit about your background.
I’m professor in Microwave and Terahertz Microsystems at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, in Stockholm, Sweden.
What is your title and/or role in the project?
I’m Scientific Leader of the project, and responsible for all micromachining parts of the project, including the innovative micromachined beam steering antenna system of the novel sub-terahertz car radar sensor.
What are your contributions to the project? (Specify what deliverables and/or tasks you are responsible for)
My research team at KTH is responsible for D3.2, 3.4, 3.6, 4.1, 4.4, 4.6,
What challenges can you foresee in the project?
The project is very ambitious, and many people with different background have to find a common language to solve the major challenges together.
How do you think the project outcome could affect our daily life?
All of us are sitting in cars too much time of our lives. This new type of car radar sensor is targeting car accidents, and also autonomous driving, to which all of us are looking forward.
