George Kantor

Sr Systems Scientist

George Kantor is a researcher and educator at the Robotics Institute in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. His technical interests lie in position estimation and mapping for mobile robots, control of robotic systems with nontrivial dynamics, and wireless networks for distributed sensing and control. His work translates ideas related to these technical interests into rugged systems that reliably solve real-world problems, especially in the application areas of agriculture and mining. He develops experimental robotic systems that demonstrate novel concepts, develops theoretical advances for problems in robot estimation and control, and disseminates knowledge through teaching and outreach. He is dedicated to K-12 STEM educational outreach activities. He directs several STEM educational activities, and he is the co-founder and lead mentor of the Girls of Steel, an all-girls FIRST Robotics Competition team.
