Howard is a graduate student at Virginia Tech working on low-level embedded system design for generic robotic systems. He graduated with two B.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering & Electrical Engineering. He has more than five years of experience doing researches in robotics labs, including the Assistive Robotics Lab (ARL) and the Terrestrial Robotics Engineering and Controls Lab (TREC) at Virginia Tech. He was the team lead of the AgBOT team at VT and they won the AgBOT Challenge for two consecutive years. Howard has experience in many different fields, including mechanical design, structural analysis, electrical design, PCB design, embedded system design and programming, simulation in the loop, object classification machine learning, and many more. Howard believes robots will bring high efficiency, high accuracy, and high sustainability to all industries, and most importantly, robots keep workers away from dangerous and repetitive tasks.
