Mechanical Engineering, Cockrell School of Engineering

Brian completed his PhD in February 2013 titled, "Object recognition and pose estimation for nuclear manipulation in nuclear materials handling applications," in which he developed a new cylindrical histogram method using 3D point clouds to recognize and locate specularly reflective objects in a specularly reflective environment (i.e. shiny metal objects in a metal glovebox). Brian continued at U.T. Austin as post doctorate until he accepted a position at LANL in August, 2013.
