‘Engineering the Future in the post-COVID era’

S. K. Ramesh, Ph.D., Fellow IEEE

We are witnessing an extraordinary test of the human spirit the past few months as governments and institutions worldwide take steps to protect people and prevent the spread of the global pandemic resulting from COVID-19. The world as we knew it has changed; forever. IEEE’s mission of “Advancing Technology for Humanity” has never been more relevant.

As we all work to learn the impacts on our global economy, two constants remain certain—innovation, and economic development, will remain critical drivers of regional and human success. Organizations like IEEE will play a vital role in this redeveloped world. With the switch to telework and telehealth, the technologies created by IEEE members are clearly making a difference, and will continue to play an important role in the new world economy when we emerge from this pandemic. IEEE has the power to support our members worldwide, and hold our profession together during these uncertain times.

 

Programs such as EPICS in IEEE, and IEEE’s Humanitarian Activities bring together students, NGO’s, and professionals to address challenges in their local communities through innovative technological solutions. This presentation will address the vast resources available through IEEE and the IEEE Learning Network (https://iln.ieee.org) to keep our members connected, engaged, and supported – as we ‘Engineer the Future’ together in a post-COVID world.

Biography

S. K. Ramesh
Director, AIMS2 program, and
Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
California State University, Northridge, USA
Email: s.ramesh@ieee.org

S. K. Ramesh is a renowned engineering educator with over three decades of leadership experience as a dean, department chair, and faculty member in the California State University system. He is presently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at California State University, Northridge, and founding Director of CSU Northridge’s internationally recognized AIMS2 program (www.ecs.csun.edu/aims2) that mentors and supports Latino/Latina students and underrepresented minorities in engineering. Earlier, he served as dean of CSUN’s College of Engineering and Computer Science from 2006-17. The programs he established serve industry practitioners in high wage, high demand fields, including renewable energy, assistive technology, and advanced manufacturing.

Dr. Ramesh has been an active IEEE volunteer for 39 years and has served in several leadership roles on the IEEE Board of Directors, IEEE-HKN Board of Governors, ABET Board of Directors, and as IEEE’s representative on the ABET Board of Delegates. As 2016-17 Vice President of Educational Activities, he championed collaboration, diversity, and inclusive excellence, through innovative programs like the IEEE Learning Network (ILN). IEEE-HKN (the Electrical Engineering Honor Society) expanded to serve all ten Regions of IEEE under his leadership as the 2016 IEEE-HKN President.

Ramesh is an IEEE Fellow recognized for “contributions to entrepreneurship in engineering education”, and his research interests cover high-speed optical communication systems, devices, and electronic circuit design. His many recognitions include the John Guarrera Engineering Educator of the Year, William Johnson International award for leadership and contributions to the profession, and the IEEE Region 6 Community Service award.

Evaluating Autonomous Vehicles at UC San Diego
Speaker: Henrik I. Christiansen

Abstract:
Autonomous vehicles have a long history in San Diego. As we transition not only to use of autonomous vehicles on the highway but also for micro-mobility services it is of interest to explore how we can solve problems such as integration into local communities, but also leverage use of technologies such as sensor fusion, object (road-user) tracking, dynamic planning, and machine learning to build next generation vehicles for community service. Over the last 2-3 years we have setup a laboratory at UC San Diego to develop, test and evaluate technologies for autonomous vehicles. In this presentation we will outline the overall program, some of the key challenges, results from the research/educational efforts and discuss our strategy for the future.

Speaker Bio:
Henrik I Christensen is a distinguished professor of computer science and engineering at UC San Diego and the director of robotics. He also coordinates the Autonomous Vehicle Laboratory. He is the main author of the US National Robotics Roadmap (2009, 2013, 2016 & 2020). He has published more than 300 papers and 8 books. He was awarded the Engelberger Award, the highest honor from the robotics industry 2014 and also named Boeing Supplier of the Year 2014. He has transitioned technology to many companies across automotive, aerospace, logistics, diagnostics and AI. He is the co-founder of six companies. He is a fellow of IEEE and AAAS.
