I'm an MSC graduate from Chalmers at the program Automation and Mechatronics which is an education in the borderland between machine-, electrical and computer engineering. My focus druing the master program was in Systems, Control and Mechatronics. My thesis was on Cpac Systems where I work with programming embedded software for marine applications. To my areas of work include system development, mechanical, circuit board design and wireless communication.
A great interest of mine has been computers and programming. In high school it was not hard to find classmates who shared this interest and soon I had two companions to start a business with. The company is today called Treplex and we are great at building web sites, web applications and advertising matter. In short, most things related to programming and design.
I now work for Volvo Penta Australia as a software engineer. My responsibilities include making sure software issues are resolved as quickly as possible. I also work with developing future functionality.

Over-the-air updates via Bluetooth LE (4.0) on Volvo Penta EasyConnect
I implemented over-the-air updates (OAD) of Volvo Pentas Bluetooth interface. This allows the user to update the Volvo Penta hardware from their mobile phone app. Quite cool.Mid 2018
Previously I worked with programming a new website for strawbees.com, and the second project was to create a similar website to a new target group; educators. To separate the education site from the retail site we divided them on two subdomains. Layout…
Working on a game in Unity3D
Together with my brother we are creating a game for iOS, Android, Mac and Windows. Currently a work in progress but it is starting to be rather fun and challanging gameplay. Computer graphics is done by my brother; Jonathan Nilsson at Crocoraff.com.…
Cross platform mobile app for Volvo Penta Easy Connect interface
Volvo Penta has commited to implement better connectivity functionality. Part of this was the release of Easy Connect. An app which lets boat users connect to their vessel via Bluetooth. I developed the proof-of-concept and then continued as one of the developers in getting this product to market. I was responsible for the initial requirement specification, choice of development platform and the continuous implementation of new features and bugfixes. We decided to develop the app in Xamarin to get cross platform (iOS and Android) with a shared code base. Looking back it was the right decision.
In colaboration with Studio Oddball, I made a simple yet functional WordPress website for Lumlyx. The website is made with responsiveness in mind to make sure it is usable on mobile devices. Check it out at lumlyx.comEarly 2017
Cpac Systems: Automated build environment

Cpac Systems: Inventor in patent applications
When developing new features for marine applications now and then I have the opportunity to work with solving complex problems. Sometimes the solution to those problems are sufficiently good to be patented. I have written numerous internal innovation declarations and a few…
Cpac Systems: Automatic Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) tests
I like automating boring tasks, and one of them sometimes is integration testing. At Cpac Systems I have been writing scripts and configuring hardware for automatic testing of Electronic Control Units (ECUs). Basically connecting the essential control units for running a…
Cpac Systems: Programming for outboard steering and propulsion systems
The project involved solving complex problems and also lots of boat testing around the world (Sweden, Japan and the US). My main tasks were to implement software algorithms, and as a side project I also developed a boat simulator to reduce time…
Cpac Systems: Personal involvement in academia connections
Collaboration between industry and academia is something I consider important. From mid 2016 to now I have been the contact person between a vehicle simulation group at Chalmers University of Technology. I also try to attend student fairs where Cpac Systems…

Realtidsplotter in Arduino
I programmed a sort of oscilloscope to troubleshoot sensors. The idea is to send real time sensor data to a computer and thus more easily set parameters to control loops. The code is open sourced and has spread in microprocessor…
Realtime data plotter
Debugging sensors on a microprocessor can be a hassle and the most used approach is to output the sensor values to a serial monitor. Realtime plotting is a better and more visual way of doing the same thing. Real-time plotter of…
