Bryan Schlake

Graduated: Dec. 2010 - M.S.

Education

Bryan Schlake received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2007 from the University of Illinois in Urbana/Champaign and his M.S. in 2010.

Professional Interests

His research related to the automated inspection of railcars through machine vision technology. He worked with a multidisciplinary team to develop a system capable of scanning railcar underbodies in order to detect critical defects.

M.S. Thesis:

IMPACT OF AUTOMATED CONDITION MONITORING TECHNOLOGIES ON RAILROAD SAFETY AND EFFICIENCY
