Commercial Lunar Robotics (2008-2011)

    I supported ongoing research in lunar robotics at CMU. I led automation of RedRover, a prototype equatorial rover designed to win the Google Lunar XPRIZE, and helped develop its stereo mapping capability. More recently, I contributed to the autonomous lunar lander project developing algorithms for terrain modeling and assessment used in mid-flight landing site selection. A combined lander/rover team from CMU and a spinoff company was intended to visit the Lacus Mortis pit on the moon.
