Chief Architect, Founder
Morgan Quigley joined the Open Source Robotics Foundation in August 2012 after completing his dissertation defense in the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, under the supervision of Professor Andrew Ng. At Stanford, he developed hardware and software systems for personal robots, including the design and initial implementation of the Robot Operating System (ROS) in close collaboration with colleagues at Willow Garage, including several who are now at the Open Source Robotics Foundation. On the hardware side, Morgan was the electrical and software designer for the low-cost, highly dexterous hand produced for the 2010-2012 DARPA ARM-H program on a team led by Curt Salisbury of Sandia National Laboratories. Other projects have included wifi-based indoor localization, sensor and embedded computing design for low-cost manipulators, high-resolution short-range depth scanners, multi-band software defined radio (SDR) for navigation applications, and miniature UAV software and hardware.
