Brian Gormanly, MS '14

Brian Gormanly, MS '14Tell us about a project or course that was particularly meaningful to your professional development. 

I took a course in robotics, which had a profound effect on my career direction.  The main class project involved creating a pair of robots that had to work together to complete a task.  A large part of the effort was centered around enabling the robots to navigate their environment.  The work I did on the robots navigation algorithm was later reused and expanded in my career as an indoor navigation and locating algorithm.
