Jonathan JILESEN is an expert in soiling and water management and has led the development of solutions for transient particle tracking and water film simulation. He has co-authored more than 20 publications related to vehicle surface contamination and water management and served as a soiling and water management session co-chair for SAE.
Jonathan has more than 10 years of experience in the transportation and mobility industry where he has worked with global OEMs to produce cleaner, more reliable vehicles. Because water and other contaminants can have a significant impact on camera and sensor performance, his work is crucial for autonomous vehicle engineering. He recently provided solutions for electric and autonomous vehicle designers to improve the efficiency of sensor cleaning systems and reduce sensor contamination.
Jonathan holds a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, majoring in computational fluid dynamics, from the University of Waterloo in Canada.
