Dr. Jared Glover Selected as First ARM Institute Fellow

The ARM Institute fellowship program supports the Artificial Intelligence in Metals and Manufacturing (AIM) Higher Defense Industry Consortium.

The ARM (Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing) Institute is proud to announce that Dr. Jared Glover, CEO of CapSen Robotics, has been selected as the institute’s first Fellow. As an ARM Institute Fellow, Dr. Glover will execute a technical project to address key challenges that hinder the adoption of robotics for manufacturers. The ARM Institute fellowship program supports the AIM Higher Consortium, a group led by Catalyst Connection that exists to support small and medium manufacturers who are currently working in the Defense manufacturing supply chain or are actively pursuing opportunities in the DoD space. Funding for the Fellowship program and the AIM Higher Consortium was provided by the Department of Defense through the Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation (OLDCC)’s Defense Manufacturing Community Support Program.

Jared Glover is the CEO and co-founder of CapSen Robotics–a company that makes software to give robots more spatial intelligence. Jared received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from MIT in 2014, where he developed and applied new theoretical tools for processing 3D orientation information to applications in computer vision and robot manipulation. Prior to that, he completed his B.S. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University, where he led a team developing robotic walkers. He has 20 years of research experience in robotics and computer vision and over 500 paper citations. He is also on the boards of Catalyst Connection, a private non-profit that provides consulting and training services to small manufacturers in southwestern Pennsylvania, and the Pittsburgh Robotics Network.
