Kari Koskinen (CEO)
Kari has 20+ years of expertise in the field of transportation engineering, AI, product development and decades of hands on software development experience. As a former student and researcher of the Helsinki University of Technology, now Aalto University, he studied algorithms, traffic safety, simulation and software development. As part of his Master’s thesis he developed a Microscopic Simulator for Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) System, an automated public transport solution. Kari also studied at the Royal Institute of Technology (Stockholm), providing him with a unique perspective on the European Union’s leading-edge approach to transportation and mobility. In addition to the research and software development work completed in Helsinki and Stockholm Kari’s expertise also includes applying soft computing and AI traffic control to live traffic environments in Finland, Sweden, Ireland and the U.S.
