Please describe your interests in robotics.

I've been a software developer since graduation from VT in '89, with a few years in the early 90s as an instructor in a community college computer engineering technology program teaching both the hardware and software sides, including a simple intro to robotics course and repairing a couple of Hero 1 and 2000 robots in labs. Unfortunately since then I haven't been able to be as involved on the hardware side of things as much as I would like. I believe robotics has a strong chance to be the next revolution much like the personal computer was in the 80s. And I want to be a part of building that future. I look forward to networking with other like-minded folks and hopefully getting involved in some larger group robotics projects.

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

It's all good! But I have particular interests in autonomous vehicles / operation, androids (e.g. Asimo), cloud robotics, and telepresence.

What other interests & hobbies do you have?

Hi, I'm Eddie. I'm a member of the first VT Computer Engineering class of '89. Professionally I'm a software developer, but outside work I have several interests and hobbies including electronics, software (of course!), and robotics.
