Adam Saenz

Adam joined LHP in 2018 bringing over 15 years of engineering experience in many areas of product lifecycle development. He specializes in embedded system design and has held positions as a software engineer, electrical engineer and systems engineer. As a software engineer, he has worked on control algorithm development and device driver level software. His hardware experience includes analog and digital circuit design, PCB layout, and FPGA firmware development. His system engineering experience includes developing architectures, writing requirements, and test case/procedure development and execution. Over the years, Adam has gained extensive experience in board bring up, hardware/software integration, and troubleshooting at the PCB, system and system-of-systems levels. He utilizes his experience in both hardware and software to determine the root causes of problems and apply the appropriate solution at the right level. Adam has also designed Automated Test Equipment (ATE) systems for verification and validation of safety-critical applications. His design approach utilizes as much off-the-shelf hardware as possible with a common software architecture to minimize costs and development time between projects. His ATE designs have been used in testing high input/output (I/O) products for military, aerospace, and industrial applications. Adam is a Functional Safety Certified Automotive Engineer (FSCAE) and has spent most of his career working on safety-critical projects. He has developed software for Aerospace DO178 Level A products, and hardware and FPGA designs for safety-critical products in the rail and industrial machine tooling industries. Adam attended California Polytechnic University Pomona and has a Bachelor’s of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering. He also has an Embedded System Engineering Certificate from the University of Irvine.

Improving Vehicle Safety through Simulated Testing Techniques

By Adam Saenz on Sep 25, 2018 8:19:00 PM

Improving driving safety through the reduction in opportunities for human error has been a focus of automotive manufacturers since the 1970s when anti-lock braking systems were first introduced. Automated features have since evolved to include more advanced technologies such as blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and self-parking. These features are now commonly known as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
