James Mclurkin

James McLurkin, Senior Hardware Engineer at Google, stopped by Adafruit, we chatted about making things and empowering people to make things, including the AIY Vision kit (recently on Hackaday) and the AIY Voice klt

More soon 🙂

I am a robotics engineer with 20+ years of experience in the field, both as an industry project lead and an award-winning researcher at MIT and Rice University. I’m a thought leader in multi-robot systems, having led engineering teams in building 2 different swarms with 100+ robots each. My interests are broad; but I’m only happy working on challenging projects involving electrical/mechanical/computational integration. I’m at Google now, developing cool new gizmos, returning to my roots as a hardware engineer.

You can learn more about my previous work as director of the Rice Multi-Robot Systems Lab here:

Recent research projects include using distributed computational geometry for multi-robot configuration estimation and control, distributed multi-robot manipulation, and deploying physical data structures for computation on multi-robot systems. Previous positions include lead research scientist at iRobot corporation, where McLurkin was the manager of the DARPA-funded Swarm project. Results included the design and construction of 112 robots and distributed configuration control algorithms, including robust software to search indoor environments. I hold a S.B. in Electrical Engineering with a Minor in Mechanical Engineering from M.I.T., a M.S. in Electrical Engineering from University of California, Berkeley, and a S.M. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from M.I.T.

Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
