Part 5: What’s the main ingredient of a test program?

ATTI asks a selection of industry professionals what they would identify as the cornerstone of development at their companies. Next up: Roger Wallgren, principal engineer, vehicle dynamics, Polestar. 

One aspect that sets us apart from other premium OEMs is that as a small team responsible for driving dynamics, we’re in a good position to push all system development toward a common vision. When you have the freedom to address any system that sticks out in terms of deviating from the desired characteristics/attributes, it is very powerful for the end result. So our development approach might be more pragmatic and flexible than most. The system with the biggest need at any given moment receives the attention. This also puts the human subjective experience first. The numbers and the measurements are at hand, but they serve the sole purpose of fulfilling the vision of the subjective experience.
