2016-02-15: 2016 Spring Intern Kevin French

Kevin French, who recently earned his BS in electrical engineering summa cum laude from the University of Florida, has joined NASA Langley's Autonomy Incubator team for the spring 2016 semester. Kevin's research area is real-time object detection, classification, tracking, and state prediction to enable the safe and efficient mobility of unmanned autonomous platforms without relying on human interaction. NASA LaRC's Autonomy Incubator is developing and maturing algorithms to solve a myriad of challenges for autonomous flight operations in dynamic and unstructured environments such as what will be needed for planetary exploration but the advantages of these capabilities don't stop there. These technologies can be leveraged and applied in civilian applications such as earth science missions, search and rescue operations, infrastructure inspection, wildlife protection, and many other prospective ideas.
