24th June 2016Robert Reid - NASA visit

Robert Reid, an Australian working at NASA JPL gave a special short seminar on his journey from Australia to JPL, and his work there.

Robert Reid is an engineer in the Robotic Mobility group at NASA JPL, with expertise in mobile robot systems and algorithms for robot localization and mapping. He has worked on a variety of unmanned systems including driving, flying, hopping and rappelling robots. Rob is currently developing localization and mapping systems for prototype robots that can hop and tumble over the surface of comets and asteroids. He is also leading work that will enable quadrotor UAVs to fly fast among obstacles without GPS.  Rob grew up on a farm 300 km south of Perth, in Western Australia. He graduated with a B.Eng from Curtin University in 2002 and started his career as a process control engineer in the oil and gas industry. In 2008, after recognizing the potential for growth in robotic systems across many industries, he decided to focus his career on robotics R&D. He returned to the University of Western Australia to complete his doctoral research, focusing on large-scale multi-robot mapping. In his thesis work he demonstrated a robust system that allows dozens of robots to operate in close proximity without GPS. Rob has operated his own engineering consulting business for the last 15 years. In 2013, NASA JPL relocated Rob and his wife from sunny Western Australia to sunny California.
