Sensor Fusion & Mountains – Aconcagua, part 1

I’m excited to start thinking ahead to my next adventure - on Aconcagua. Besides looking forward to a fantastic trip, I’m figuring out how I can combine two of my main interests, outdoor/endurance adventure and science/engineering. With increasing interest across a variety of industries in technologies for “extreme environments”, this seems entirely reasonable to me.  [...]

Cyber-Physical-Biological Symbiotic Systems

I’m interested in cyber-physical-biological symbiotic relationships from several angles.  Focusing here on the larger scale, you might look at it from an infrastructure point of view.  With today’s expanding IoT and communications network scope and functionality, we may think frequently about increasing sensing capabilities in our environment, However, we tend to think in terms of [...]

Hiking in Kluane National Park & Reserve (Yukon Territory)

People keep asking me for details about fun adventures, so I will post some of them here.  Recently, I visited and hiked in Yukon Territory.  I wouldn’t put this one into the “adventure” category – more like low-key, easy hiking but a fun trip in a beautiful area and well worth the visit. I’d driven [...]

Soft, Wearable Exoskeletons

I’ve been interested in robotic exoskeletons for years, having done my PhD work in that area. More recently, I’ve become interested in the developing field of soft robotics and have been dreaming about use cases that combine elements of both. Although professionally, I tend more to focus on B2B applications of technologies, as a consumer, [...]
