CEO, Edge Case Research
Mike is the CEO of Edge Case Research, a company he founded with Philip Koopman to make autonomy safer. His experience with autonomous vehicles began nearly twenty years ago at Carnegie Mellon University. He built lunar rovers for Red Whittaker, autonomous scientific robots that explored Antarctica and self driving technology for tackling harsh off road terrain.
Ten years ago, Mike and Philip Koopman began researching techniques to design and verify autonomous systems. Today, he applies this experience to lead Edge Case Research with the goal of providing validation technology for autonomy across a range of industries, including self driving cars, materials handling, and robotic work cells.
