Steve Vozar

Breaking down barriers through servant leadership so incredible technical teams can achieve the impossible. Specializing in Autonomy, Robotics, and IoT.

I am the Principal and Founder of Vozar Technology Consulting, delivering strategic insights and technical leadership to enterprises developing products and services leveraging autonomy, artificial intelligence, robotics, and IoT. I specialize in intellectual property strategy, technical and product roadmapping, as well as technical hiring and recruiting.

Prior to my consulting career, I was the Co-Founder and CTO of May Mobility, leading the technology team that deployed the first commercial fleet of self-driving shuttles in the United States, overseeing product, user experience, hardware, software, autonomy, vehicle production, and quality teams. Before founding May Mobility, I was a Research Fellow with the APRIL and PeRL laboratories at the University of Michigan, developing robotic solutions for Ford’s next-generation vehicle thrust and the DARPA Squad X Core Technologies program. I have previously worked at Johns Hopkins University, developing tele-robotic satellite servicing technology in collaboration with NASA. In 2012 I was named a Human-Robot Interaction Pioneer for my PhD work on tele-robotic mobile manipulation. I also co-founded and acted as VP of Technology for Absolute Nano, a university spin-off developing instruments for nanomaterials research, which won a 2009 R&D 100 Award.
