Abstract

Witnessing of engineering and product qualification tests typically take place at remote factories and test facilities and provides project owners across different industries with the confidence and assurance that the suppliers’ test setup, execution, and results are valid and in compliance with pertinent technical and other contract requirements. For some engineering and system qualification tests, remote witnessing using live video and audio transmission can enable and allow project owners to gain an acceptable level of confidence that observed testing was performed correctly without the need for an on-site physical presence. Remote witnessing can be conducted in real-time using the latest commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) products and instant chat and video conferencing applications, or simply by viewing the recorded footage following the test completion. This presentation discusses a remote test witnessing approach tailored for transit applications.

Biography

Mike works for Jacobs Engineering Group as a Mechanical Engineer & Test Engineer where he coordinates and supports testing of various transit vehicles and electromechanical subsystems.  Mike earned a BSME from NYU Tandon School of Engineering in 2017.

Prior to joining Jacobs he completed an engineering internship at LEIF technologies where he did quality assurance engineering on electric skateboards. He also volunteers with Engineers Without Borders and the NYC Makerfaire.
