Bibhrajit Halder, Ph.D., is an industry expert for self-driving vehicle, autonomous robotics, AI and Deep Learning. He has been working on autonomous robotics for over 15 years. He completed Ph.D. at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN and has MS degree in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mathematics from Ohio University. During his Ph.D., he worked on fault detection and isolation and a supervisory control architecture that allows autonomous robots to identify failures and take safe action.
Dr. Halder joined Caterpillar and worked on Autonomous Mining Truck for 7 years, which is one of the first commercially available fully autonomous trucks in the world. At Caterpillar, he worked on Vehicle Health Management system, which is critical to any autonomous machine. He also developed algorithm for localization and perception for autonomous vehicle. After Caterpillar he joined Ford and build a team to develop self-driving algorithm. Later he worked at a start-up, Faraday Future where he led a team to develop self-driving software for next generation smart cars. He architected and deployed AI algorithm and Deep Learning model in self-driving application. Later he worked at Apple as Sr. Architect worked on autonomous solution.
Currently he is the, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of SafeAI, Inc. SafeAI is building the future of autonomous mine by creating autonomous mining equipment that just works.
He has published 1 book on autonomous robotics, over 15 journal papers, and filed more than 40 patent applications.
Bibhrajit Halder, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of SafeAI, will join a Technology Q&A on accessing the fast and furious pace of autonomy to transform mining in the Workforce of the Future session at IMARC 2019. Download the programme.
