The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision is proud to announce that Centre Chief Investigator Rob Mahony from the Australian National University has just been named a Fellow of the IEEE.

The IEEE is recognising Professor Mahony for his contributions to control aspects of aerial robotics.

“It’s really an honour to be named a Fellow of the IEEE,” said Prof Mahony. “I’m pleased this also brings some recognition to the work being done in our Centre.”

An IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a prestigious honour and an important career achievement. The total number of members selected for elevation in any one year cannot exceed one-tenth of one-per cent of the total voting membership.

The award will be formally presented to him at ICRA 2017 in Singapore.

Mahony is a Professor in the Research School of Engineering at ANU, where he has been since 2001. He also serves on the Executive Committee and has been a Chief Investigator for the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision since its inauguration in 2014. His research interests are in non-linear control theory with applications in robotics, robotics vision and systems theory.

The IEEE is the world’s leading professional association for advancing technology for society. Through its 400,000  plus members in 160 countries, the association is a leading authority on a wide variety of areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics.
