Research Robotics Engineer, Specialization in Surgical Robotics, Energid Technologies Inc.
Daniel is a Robotics Research Engineer at Energid Technologies where he develops advanced software and robotic systems for the aerospace, agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, defense, and medical industries. As a PhD researcher at University of Wisconsin, he created a multibody dynamics engine that specializes in large-scale simulation including millions of rigid/flexible bodies that interact through joints or physics-based contact.
As a mechanical engineer for the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC), he worked on the Dynamics and Durability Team to quantify the uncertainty in traditional terramechanics approaches and validate these numerical methods against experimental data. He also assisted in the design of a state-of-the-art terramechanics testing suite for light-weight ground vehicles and acted as the Dynamics Subject Matter Expert for the Army’s next generation simulation capability.
