Perception Engineer

Aurora Flight Sciences, a Boeing Company

Carlos Jaramillo is currently a Perception Engineer at Aurora Flight Sciences, a Boeing Company working on aerospace autonomy. In 2018, he earned his doctorate degree in computer science at the City University of New York under the supervision of Dr. Jizhong Xiao at the CCNY Robotics Lab. His Ph.D thesis dissertation included research in topics of computer vision applied to robotic sensing for navigation, mobile autonomous robots and omnidirectional vision sensors. He enjoys researching science, hacking technology, and programming in any language that gets the job done, but his preferences are Python, C and C++. He has participated in various international events, conferences, and competitions. For instance, in 2009, he joined the CityALIEN team, which won the Design Competition during the Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition (IGVC), and then he led a new team in 2011. He interned at Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL) for a year (2016-2017) where he was able to collaborate with Dr. Yuichi Taguchi on developing algorithms for SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) and 3D reconstruction.
