WELCOME ABOARD BEAU

METECS is excited to welcome Beau Domingue. Beau graduated with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette followed by a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering focused on Robotics and Controls from Georgia Tech. Beau began his career in robotics by developing a computer vision system for object detection using machine learning. He then began working in warehouse automation where his role was to develop software to enable autonomous navigation using concepts from motion planning and controls. He also participated in the development and implementation of an indoor localization system.
