Robotic Manipulation and Sampling Group

Kyle Edelberg
Group Leader
(Short description>>)

Kyle has been a robotics engineer in the Robotic Manipulation and Sampling group since he joined JPL in 2014. Kyle designs, analyzes, and implements control systems and behaviors to enable mobile manipulation capabilities in real-world conditions, both for flight projects and research tasks. On the flight side Kyle is leading algorithm and software development for the Mars 2020 Rover Coring Drill as well as controls analysis for the Sampling and Caching Subsystem. Past research includes RoboSimian, first for the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) and then for in-space assembly, and currently he is working on controls systems for a dynamic quadruped. Kyle is also an officer in the United States Navy Reserve.
