Keith Redmill received B.S.E.E and B.A. in Mathematics degrees from Duke University in 1989 and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from The Ohio State University in 1991 and 1998, respectively. He has been with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering since 1999, initially as a Senior Research Associate, then as a Research Scientist, and more recently as an Assistant Professor of Practice managing and teaching the undergraduate capstone senior design program. Currently he is a Research Associate Professor as well as an Associate Fellow of the OSU Center for Automotive Research.
He has led or participated in a wide range of interdisciplinary projects, including a series of self driving automated passenger vehicles. He led the system integration and vehicle control activities for the 2007 OSU-ACT DARPA Urban Challenge entry, the previous 2004 and 2004 DARPA Grand Challenges, and the 1997 National Automated Highway Systems Consortium demonstration. Other industry and government sponsored projects include autonomous ground and aerial robotic vehicle development and experiments, sensing and sensor fusion development projects involving computer vision, LADAR, radar, GPS, IMU, and other sensing modalities, wireless vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communication simulation and application development, traffic monitoring and data collection, intelligent vehicle control and safety systems for vehicles ranging from small ATVs to heavy duty commercial trucks, remote sensing programs, embedded and electromechanical system design and prototyping, and process control development. He has collaborated with faculty and researchers in the Electrical and Computer Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Chemical Engineering departments as well as the Center for Automotive Research and the Center for Mapping. He also has a longstanding on-site involvement with the US DOT NHTSA Vehicle Research and Testing Center.
His areas of technical interest include control and systems theory, intelligent transportation systems, autonomous vehicle and robotic systems, real-time embedded systems, GPS and inertial positioning and navigation, transit and traffic monitoring, image processing, wireless digital communication for vehicles, sensor technologies, decentralized multi-agent hierarchical and hybrid systems, and numerical analysis and scientific computing. He has extensive software development, including real-time data collection, processing, and data archival and database and web deployment, electronics development and testing, and embedded systems deployment experience.
He is a senior member of the IEEE and SIAM.
