2016-08-10: Josh Eddy Summer 2016 Exit Presentation

Josh, a Masters student at his alma mater Virginia Tech, presented on his research in visual-inertial navigation and state estimation in GPS-denied environments using unscented Kalman filters. If you want a brilliant yet accessible explanation of state estimation, Kalman filtering, or GPS-denied navigation, watch this video. As I write this, Meghan, Nick, and Gale are talking about what an effective teacher Josh is.

"I don't feel like I just watched a half-hour lecture on Kalman filtering," Nick said.

"Yeah, he'd be a great professor," Meghan added.

Josh did super cool, innovative work and he's great at explaining it. We're going to miss him and his stage presence a lot around here.
