Dr. Marek Jersak received his Diploma in Electrical Engineering from Aachen University of Technology, Germany in 1997. From 1997 to 1999 he worked on DSP compiler design for Conexant in Newport Beach, California. He returned to school in 1999 and graduated with a PhD in Real-Time Embedded System Design from the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany in 2004.
In 2005 Marek co-founded Symtavision in Braunschweig together with his university fellow Dr. Kai Richter, serving as CEO. In 2013 Symtavision expanded to the US and became a globally recognized leader in Timing Analysis tools and architecture consulting for automotive real-time systems.
In February 2016, Marek and Kai sold Symtavision to Luxoft. Marek is now serving as VP Autonomous Drive Solutions. This segment of Luxoft Automotive has grown to more than 800 engineers. The focus is three-fold: 1) Level-2 mass-production ADAS functions centered around Camera, Lidar and Radar, 2) architectures and algorithms for Level-3+ autonomous driving, and 3) methods and tools for the virtual development of ADAS and AD.
