Power & Energy, and Vehicular Technology Societies

Sponsored by the IEEE Education Society

Claire J. Tomlin

Bonnie H. Ferri

For contributions to air transportation
systems, focusing on collision avoidance protocol design and avionics safety
verification

For pioneering mobile hands-on learning and flipped classroom techniques for
undergraduate engineering education

Claire J. Tomlin's control systems expertise is making air transportation systems safer through collision avoidance techniques
and avionics safety verification methods. Tomlin's algorithms allow the development and analysis of control protocols that have
guarantees of safety for hybrid system models, which represent the
kinds of switched dynamical systems found in air transportation
systems. Her work has been tested in simulation, on unmanned
aerial vehicle test flights, and flown on commercial platforms. She
built one of the first quadrotor testbeds for experimentation with
these control protocols. Her methods were used to compute collision zones for two aircraft paired approaches and were flown on
a Boeing T-33 test aircraft that was able to avoid collision with
an F-15 flying "blunders" into its path. Her work is also integral
to the development of the Next Generation Air Transportation
System for modernizing air traffic control.
An IEEE Fellow,Tomlin is the Charles A. Desoer Chair in Engineering (EECS) at the University of California, Berkeley, CA, USA.

A leader in classroom innovation, the programs developed by
Bonnie H. Ferri are transforming undergraduate engineering
education for students at the Georgia Institute of Technology and
around the world. Ferri is pioneering the use of mobile, hands-on
laboratory equipment that allows electrical and computer engineering (ECE) students to perform exercises at home or in class
instead of in traditional laboratories.This has also allowed lecturebased courses to now have a laboratory component. Ferri also
has improved learning environments by incorporating the latest
flipped/blended techniques into the ECE curriculum. In this format, prerecorded lectures are viewed outside of class to allow students to interactively work on problems in the classroom during
what would normally be lecture time.
An IEEE Senior Member, Ferri is a professor with the School
of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute
of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA.

2016 ieee staff award

IEEE Eric Herz Outstanding Staff Member Award
Sponsored by IEEE

Karen A. Galuchie

For exceptional staff leadership and for support and service to IEEE volunteers in achieving the philanthropic objectives of the IEEE and the IEEE Foundation

Karen A. Galuchie drives the design and implementation of
strategies and programs critical to building a culture of philanthropy within IEEE. Known as a "go-to" person who gets things
done, Galuchie ensures that the day-to-day operations of the
IEEE Foundation are responsive, effective, efficient, and forward
facing. She has been instrumental in developing and deploying
the Foundation's strategic direction to further IEEE's mission to
foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of

humanity through philanthropy. A trusted and respected
leader, Galuchie credits the success of the Foundation to the
highly effective and committed team she has assembled, which
is considered among the most engaged and impactful among
IEEE staff .
Galuchie was the recipient of the 2010 IEEE Joyce E. Farrell
Award and now is executive director of the IEEE Foundation,
Piscataway, NJ, USA.
