THE

Lycoming grad becomes a driving force

in human-machine teaming

cott Grigsby ’84 has always

loved science and knew he’d end up involved in something

technical someday. “But I didn’t think I’d be doing anything

like this!” he admitted.

As a neuroscientist and program manager at Ball Aerospace &

Technologies Corp., Grigsby led the SAM (Semi-Autonomous Motorcar)

project to nationally renowned success and, most importantly, was part of the

team that gave Sam Schmidt, an injured IndyCar driver with no ability to move his arms or

legs, the ability to once again drive at high speeds on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
