How can traffic accidents be avoided? When a crash becomes unavoidable, how can the highest level of safety be ensured for the vehicle occupants and the damage kept to a minimum? Ahmed´s department Active Safety considers these questions when working on a new product, be it lights that automatically dim (automatic high/low beam) or software that generates hundreds of thousands of kilometers of virtual road scenarios to test new products. "Every day is different," says Ahmed, "and I love that, because it invigorates my mind." As a performance feature engineer, error correction and problem solving are his passion.
How he came to ZF:
When at college, Ahmed´s big dream was to work as an engineer on a development team in the automotive industry. After studying electrical engineering at Michigan State University, he made a conscious decision to go and work for ZF in Detroit: "The company is a powerhouse of innovation. I love being able to play a part in the changes we drive here."
