The Role of Trust in Hardware Design
How we design our hardware drives the confidence our customers have in us and their decision to use our products. From a mechanical standpoint, a big part of trust relates to the durability and the reliability of the product.
Meet Our Leaders: A Conversation with Gabe Mayo
Shield AI’s VP of Hardware Engineering Gabe Mayo on why he became an engineer, his design inspirations, and why it is important to solve hard problems.
Shield AI Fundamentals: On Path Planning & Controls
Path planning and controls are fundamental building blocks of autonomy. Together, the two concepts enable a robotic system to formulate a path from point A to point B and then generate motor commands to execute travel along that path.
The Role of Trust in Building a Team
At Shield AI, we believe that we must build an extraordinary team in order to successfully accomplish our mission. And great teams are built on a foundation of trust.
