Tools of Innovation and Technology

Thursday, September 18, 4:10 pm to 4:30 pm in Auditorium

Imagine an Arduino board with WiFi, Bluetooth, 9 degrees of motion sensing, 6 degrees of environmental sensing, GPS, a data logger, an OLED display with a trackball for navigation, a powerful Arduino-compatible 32-bit microcontroller and built-in power management- all that, and smaller than a flash drive! Derived from a rocket flight computer, that’s APOLLO: the world’s smallest and most integrated embedded sensor and IOT prototyping platform.

CEO/CTO, Carbon Origins
Amogha has been tinkering with electronics, robots, model airplanes and rockets since he was a little kid. In college, while triple majoring in computer, mechanical and aerospace engineering, he founded and lead various research projects and student organizations. This allowed him to get a broad hands-on experience in interdisciplinary fields of engineering and management. He was soon starting his own companies and is now serving as the CEO and CTO at Carbon Origins, a startup aerospace company developing rapidly reusable suborbital rockets and miniaturized spacecraft to take up small-to-medium-sized payloads. From their rocket flight computers was born APOLLO, a tiny embedded sensors and networking prototyping platform, which he will be presenting at MakerCon.
