Robert C. McCall
Who I am:
I am a Research Programmer for the
which is part of
Carnegie Mellon University.
I work off-campus at the
National Robotics Engineering Consortium
which is located in the Lawrenceville section of Pittsburgh. Our
primary focus is on the commercialization of current robotics
techologies, which provides us with an extremely diverse and interesting
set of projects to work on. In my non-work role, I am the proud father
Brendan and Gavin,
who will probably be the death of me in the not distant future, and
husband of Amy, who is busy tearing up Duquesne's Law School.
What I do:
I have a mixed background in engineering and technical programming.
I spent my first three years at the Robotics Institute developing
simulation and visualization software, mostly in the area of mining
robots. My recent work is focused in the areas of data fusion and
control, primarily for mining and agricultural robots, although I am
still keeping my hand in the graphics and simulation world, as well as
writing general purpose software. In my previous life as an employee
of the U. S. Air Force, I have worked in flight
simulation and flight test, as well as doing some research into the
control of large flexible structures. If you want more information about
my background, here is a copy of my current
resume (in Acrobat pdf format).
