Mobile Robots Expert Witness Services

Are you in need of an expert witness in the robotics space? With over 2 years of experience working at a mobile robotics company, I know what makes a safe robot. There are multiple steps a robotics company can take to ensure the safety of their machine:

  1. Sensor Coverage: Ensuring the software can track the environment surrounding the machine in the direction of motion
  2. Robot Footprint Violation Detection: Ensure the machine can detect if an object or person is making contact with it
  3. Safety Software Refresh Rate: Determining how quickly the safety software can detect contact has been made with a foreign object
  4. Sensor Safety Certification: Ensuring sensors used to determine safety behavior has been safety certified
  5. Robot velocities based on stopping distance and machine weight: Ensuring that in the event of a fast stop, the machine will slow down from its maximum configured velocity in a safe manner.

Determining whether companies adhered to these industry standard principles is something I can help determine. With an undergraduate degree from one of the top computer science schools in the country (U.C Berkeley) and graduate degree with a specialization in robotics from U.C San Diego, I am qualified to provide expert witness services on the topic of robotics and mobile robots.

As more mobile robots enter the public space, it is inevitable there will be a rise in incidents where a mobile robot harms or injures someone. These injuries will be exacerbated in smaller persons such as children. I can ensure accountability in this scenarios and provide fair expert testimony on the practices of the company, reviewing technical materials provided and providing expert commentary.
