unnamed_8.jpgKeynote speaker is Peter Carlsson, VP Purchasing and Logistics, Tesla Motors, CA USA. Peter has been part of the top management team at Tesla for the last four years. Tesla, with headquarter in the heart of the Internet industry Silicon Valley, is not working the same way as the classical automotive industry. He will give his inside view how Tesla is managing to build an organisation to deliver and meet premium customer expectations.

Continuous up-dates is what we expect in our computers and smartphones already. Professor Jan Bosch at Software Centre and Chalmes is working with Swedish industry to climb the stairway-to-heaven.


Tesla offers their customers over-the-air software up-dates with new features in delivered vehicles. They are also claiming that they will offer autonomous driving within a few years, to already delivered cars. Representatives from Delphi, Volvo GTT and Volvo Cars will present how far they are and discuss with Peter Carlsson and Jan Bosch about the future for the vehicle industry.

Tesla is challenging the existing car makers by beeing totally focused on electrical propulsion. Swedish vehicle industry is developing electrical systems and know how supported by the FFI Program. The sub-program Energi och Miljö will present the roadmap, vision and some good project examples from Volvo Cars, AB Volvo and Kongsberg. The Innovation Bazaar is “Samverkansforum” for the FFI Program.
