About

Mahesh Chowdhary is Fellow and Director of Strategic Platforms and IoT Excellence Center at STMicroelectronics, Inc. Prior to ST, he was a Senior Director of MEMS technology at CSR, where he worked on the integration of MEMS sensors, GPS, and wireless technologies. He has over 20 years of experience in signal processing, algorithm development, sensors and location technologies. As Founder and CTO of Acculeon, he pioneered the use of GPS and MEMS sensors in vehicle safety applications. He has also worked on a variety of advanced navigation technologies at Visteon and on autonomous vehicles at the Corporate R&D Center at Caterpillar. As a Control Systems Scientist at Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, Mahesh worked on signal processing applications relating to position and energy feedback loops in the particle accelerator. Mahesh received his Ph.D. in Applied Science with focus on Particle Accelerator Science from The College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia..
