Luca Carlone Receives NSF CAREER Award

March 9, 2021

We are thrilled to share that LIDS faculty member Luca Carlone (AeroAstro) has received a National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award for his research on “Certifiable Perception for Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems.”

Luca’s project lays the foundations of certifiable perception by developing a toolkit of theory, algorithms, and implementations to monitor and drastically reduce subsystem and system-level failures of perception in autonomous cyber-physical systems (CPS). The aim is to develop trustworthy perception systems to help ensure safety and enable adoption of high-integrity and safety-critical CPS applications. Full award information can be found here.

The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the NSF’s most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization.
