Hi! I’m Chris Osterwood and I build robots.

I grew up in the Washington DC area and moved to Pittsburgh to attend Carnegie Mellon University. I graduated in 2005 with a Bachelors of Science with Research Honors in Mechanical Engineering. While at CMU, I was active in robotics research at the Robotics Institute and helped grow the CMU Robotics Club from a dozen members to over 100. Since graduating, I’ve continued to work in the robotics industry here in Pittsburgh.

RoboPGH Logo I’m on the Steering Committee of the Pittsburgh Robotics Network. The best way to follow Pittsburgh robotics news is to follow our Twitter account @robopgh. The website now lists the more than 50 companies and organizations which make up RoboPGH.

I’ve recently given talks on testing and selection of 3D sensors at the Embedded Vision Summit and at ROSCON. I spoke about Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Robots at the 2016 Practicing Law Institute Get Fluent in Technology Event.
