Philippe Jardin studied mechanical engineering at the TU Darmstadt and the University of California, Berkeley. During his studies he focused on the control of mechatronic systems in practical applications.
Since September 2018, he is part of the research group “Vehicle Systems” at the IMS. Together with Daimler AG his research is on cloud-based comfort functions for longitudinal vehicle dynamics. The goal of this cooperation is the application of new methods from machine learning in synergy with outsourcing of software calculations into a cloud environment. From that, future comfort functions that will adapt individually to the driver are developed.
