Carnegie Mellon Trip

I took a trip to Pittsburgh last week for work. I am working on a project with the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute on a lunar rover called Scarab. It is a pretty cool rover that carries a drill for sample collection as well as the equipment for processing. Anyway, Neptec is providing our TriDAR sensor for drill site selection, drill site inspection, and navigation. I was there with a coworker, Adam, to do some testing and observe some of CMU's testing.

As an added bonus, I got to ride on an offroad Segway! It was pretty fun. Here is a picture of me on the Segway next to the rover and there are a few more in the album.
