About me

Malte Rothhämel graduated from Technical University in Dresden, Germany, as Diplom-Ingenieur (corresponding Master of Engineering). He undertook an industrial PhD in steering feel and active steering in heavy trucks at Scania and Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden. After a several month motorcycle trip with his family he was sent as a guest researcher to Volkswagen Global Research in Wolfsburg, Germany, working on fail-operation chassis concepts for automated heavy vehicles. Malte spent 3.5 years in the development of active steering and back-up steering systems for heavy trucks as well as braking and steering system integration in automated heavy trucks at Scania.
In 2020 he joined KTH in Stockholm as Assistant Professor in Vehicle System Technology, widening the focus including also human powered vehicles.
