Zac Vawter

Founding Engineer
Kodiak Robotics

After 10 years working as a software engineer, Zac experienced a life-altering change when he lost his leg in a motorcycling accident. His interest in technology shifted to robotics, where he played an instrumental role in designing and testing the first thought-controlled “bionic” leg at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. Today, Zac works at the frontiers of self-driving automobiles, where he develops localization, perception, prediction & planning software in Silicon Valley.
