Ulrik Ekedahl
Promoted Senior Lecturer

Ulrik researches how to open up connected embedded devices as a precursor to “Internet of Things”, and how this supports open innovation also in the domain of embedded systems. The Elis project being one example.

Ulrik's main interest is the implications this has on the technical architecture and how this in turn affects involved stakeholders, including both those manufacturing the devices, users and undirected 3rd party developers. The R&D effort for this must be based on sustainable business models for all involved stakeholders and result in optimised product quality as experienced by the end users.

His strength is a holistic view, where he sees program design and architecture, development methods, business models, organisation and management as parts in a successful system. This is a result of his years in industry and the possibilities he had in fast application and validation of his research.

He has led or participated in a number of industrial advanced engineering projects developing future embedded electronics, mainly for cars, many of the projects requiring international cooperation.
