Jason Tartt is the technical lead for LHPU, responsible for controls and course development training. He has worked as a controls and calibration engineer for Mercury Marine, MotoTron, and Woodward, Inc., specializing in knock, governing, coldstart, and vehicle drivability on diesel, gasoline, and natural gas applications.
Jason received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis and his Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from University of Wisconsin at Madison. In his spare time, Jason enjoys training for triathlons.
Mike Gallagher Mike Gallagher is a Systems and Controls Engineer that brings MATLAB, Simulink, and MotoHawk experience from a variety of industries to the LHPU training program. He started his career in a research and development group at Parker Hannifin that was responsible for commercializing series hydraulic hybrid transmissions for the medium and heavy duty truck markets. At Parker, he held responsibility for a wide range of software algorithms including cold-start, regenerative braking, and safety critical fault diagnostics. He also held leadership roles in the multi-month simulation studies that defined the powersplit transmission architecture for Parker’s future hybrid transmission systems.
Since leaving Parker in 2013 he has run his own consulting business taking on projects in the full-electric, hybrid hydraulic, marine stabilization, and building automation industries. The consistent thread between all these projects has been their reliance on auto-code generation tools.
Mike graduated from Vanderbilt University in 2009 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics. He completed his Master’s coursework at The Ohio State University graduating in 2014 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on Control Theory. Currently he’s working on his PhD in electrical engineering at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. His research interests are autonomous vehicles, pattern recognition, deep learning, and Robot Operating System (ROS). Mike is also a FIRST Robotics mentor for team 1308 at St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland, OH. www.michael-gallagher.com
