Robotic Manipulation and Sampling Group

Kyle Edelberg
(Full description>>)

Biography (more>>)
Kyle has been a robotics engineer in the Robotic Manipulation and Sampling group since he joined JPL in 2014. Kyle spends half his time developing and testing algorithms, control strategies, and software for the Mars 2020 Rover coring drill. The other half he spends developing autonomous and semi-autonomous capabilities for systems like RoboSimian, first for the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) and then for in-space assembly. Kyle’s interests lie in delivering end-to-end capabilities for mobile manipulation systems operating in real-world conditions. Kyle is also an officer in the United States Naval Reserve.
