Carlos Hernández Matas, PhD

Robotics Software Research Engineer

Aeolus Robotics, Inc

I am a Robotics Software Research Engineer at Aeolus Robotics Inc, which is a service robotics startup currently focused on providing assistive robots for elderly care facilities. I joined the startup in its early stages. In it I own features from specification to delivery and coordinate across teams to ensure agile development. I also perform algorithm development and testing, as well as hardware-software integration, for robot perception, grasping, motion and reactive planning. I have also led tech demos for investors, as well as knowledge transfer workshops for other developers on how to work with the robots. Additionally, I have performed technology scouting duties at international robotic conferences.

During my PhD studies I performed research on retinal image registration and modelling, and before that I worked as a software engineer in Scientific Games and Nokia Siemens Networks
