|Parastoo Delgoshaei, PhD Candidate, UMCP|
After Action Report:
February 19th, saw not one, but three speakers present to INCOSE Chesapeake members and guests in APL’s Parsons Auditorium for the chapter’s monthly event. The speakers, all graduate students at the University of Maryland’s Institute for Systems Research, each presented on their research topics. It made for an evening of intriguing discussion and technical interchange.
Parastoo Delgoshaei (left) led off, giving her presentation: “Semantic Platforms for Requirements Traceability and System Assessment.” Ms. Degloshaei’s charts were very thorough, and included a video clip of real-time requirements verification (or not!) during system simulation. The example system? The Washington Metro’s Red- and Green-line trains – a system I’m sure many of us would love to see improved. Up next was Leonard Petnga, who spoke on the topic of time-based reasoning for cyber-physical systems. Mr. Petnga emphasized the benefits of strict reasoning approaches for ensuring, among others, the stringent safety requirements often placed on systems from the cyber-physical domain. Peter Block then drew even more interest from the crowd, with his presentation “All-Elastomer Tactile Sensors for Robotic Skins.” The topic was the subject of many questions from the audience, as each presenter took questions at the final lecture’s end.
With such a depth of technical content, this recap is quite a general overview of the night’s lectures. To watch and listen to the presentations as they actually happened, navigate to INCOSE Chesapeake’s video library, or our YouTube page, using the links below.
Speakers: Mr. Petnga and Ms. Delgoshaei are PhD candidates, Mr. Block a Masters candidate, all doing research at the UMCP Institute for Systems Research.
