VTT has appointed Jere Laaksonen as CEO of a new subsidiary aimed at developing autonomous systems.
The company says VTT Sense Way will provide autonomous systems for transport, logistics and mobile work machines.
VTT’s CEO Antti Vasara says the company is looking for solutions to tackle challenges such as resource sufficiency and industrial renewal.
“We want to ensure that the results of cutting-edge research reach the markets and become a part of the business world and people’s everyday lives more rapidly than before,” Vasara continues. “At the same time, we are helping Finnish industries and society to adopt the changes in modes of operation and business practices enabled by the new technologies.”
