Please describe your interests in robotics.

Hello, my name is Micah Boswell. I have been interested in robotics since I participated in the VWCC autonomous robotics competition in 2006, although my interest in electrical and mechanical engineering projects goes back much further than that. I helped organize the VWCC robotics competition each year until 2008, when I transferred to Virginia Tech. There I joined the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Team, where I got the opportunity to work on a much larger scale project for three years.

What types of robotics do you enjoy, and what types of robotics are you interested in learning about?

Most of my experience with robotics has been with submarines, although what I enjoy the most is teaching robotics to kids. What I want to learn about next is flying robots, perhaps constructing an UAV or MAV.

What other interests & hobbies do you have?

I am a software engineer as well; I have written software similar to dropbox or google drive that can be run on a home server with minimal setup, supporting full encryption and revision control (similar to time machine on mac).

I'm a recent grad of Virginia Tech in Computer Engineering. I have designed and built robots of all scales. At Virginia Tech, I was captain of the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Team, and I have worked with robotics at VWCC since 2006.
