Kyle Carbon is a Senior Staff AI Engineer at Shield AI. He is the Technical Lead for Hivemind Edge business unit, previously leading the Trajectory Planning and Control team. Prior to joining Shield AI, Kyle designed and implemented control laws for shape-memory-alloy actuators at Boeing, where he deployed these actuators in large-scale wind tunnel tests in England and at NASA. Also at Boeing, he played an important role in the 2016 Boeing ecoDemonstrator program; he modeled LIDAR systems for use in redundant air data systems, gust-load alleviation, and long-range turbulence detection & mitigation, and collaborated with external vendors on requirements formulation, design, and implementation. Kyle earned his MS in Aeronautics & Astronautics from Stanford University, and his bachelor’s in general engineering from Harvey Mudd College.
Shield AI Fundamentals: Trajectory Planning
We ask very difficult missions of Nova. For example, we ask it to explore a previously unknown building while detecting potential threats and evading them, respond to our user’s requests immediately, and to provide a live video stream and create a map in real time.
Why Shield AI: Values that Motivate
When I first interviewed at Shield AI, I sensed an energy rooted in a passion for the mission from everyone I met. To this day, I feel that same excitement and sense of focused purpose daily. I come to work excited to continue learning, to develop even stronger friendships, and to make a real difference. Everyday at Shield AI, the arrival of the day’s end surprises me. Time passes quickly here. The following are a few of my favorite reasons why I love working here.
