Greg Burton is interested in controls, robotics, planning, data visualization, CAD and solid modeling, and graphics processor (GPU) accelerated algorithms.
Prior to joining PARC's embedded reasoning team, Greg was a research engineer at Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company's Advanced Technology Center. He developed algorithms and software for space vehicle trajectory planning, star tracker flight software, infrared camera simulations, GPU-based track-before-detect, and automated coastline identification for the GOES-R Geostationary Lightning Mapper. He holds one provisional patent.
Burton earned his M.S. in Mechatronics and Control from U.C. Berkeley and B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from U.C. San Diego, where he was a winner of the John E. Starrett Memorial Scholarship.
