Hans Hansson, Professor


Hans Hansson is professor in Real-Time Systems at Mälardalen University since 1997. He is director of Mälardalen Real-Time Research Centre and the PROGRESS national strategic research centre, Scientific Leader of SICS Swedish ICT Västerås AB and the EU/ARTEMIS project SafeCer. He received an MSc (Engineering Physics), a Licentiate degree (Computer Systems), a BA (Business Administration), and a Doctor of Technology degree (Computer Systems) from Uppsala University (UU), Sweden, in 1981, 1984, 1984 and 1992. Prof. Hansson’s previous appointments include being director of the nat’l research programme ARTES, visiting prof. and dept. chair at the Dept. of Computer Systems, Uppsala University, and researcher and scientific advisor at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS) in Stockholm.

Hans Hanssons research interests and contributions include component-based design of safety-critical real-time embedded systems, modeling and analysis of real-time communication, real-time testing and debugging, execution-time analysis, development of automotive control SW, and formal modeling of timing and probability. Prof. Hansson is associate editor of the IEEE Tr. on Industrial Informatics.
