ioannis@oraton.co
Dr. Kanellakopoulos is a technology leader with 25+ years of experience in R&D, operations, administration, and management. in both academia and industry. He is an IEEE Fellow, and a recipient of multiple national and international awards.

He was a Professor and Vice-Chair in the Department of Electrical Engineering at UCLA, and later a Chief Scientist and CTO of several Silicon Valley startups. He has authored or co-authored one book, 6 book chapters, 24 articles in refereed technical journals, 60 papers in refereed technical conferences, and 12 contributions to international telecommunications standards committees. He is also the co-inventor on more than 25 patents. He has been the plenary speaker at major technical conferences, and an invited speaker at more than 40 industrial and academic venues in 12 countries across 4 continents.

Dr. Kanellakopoulos has significant experience as an expert witness in patent infringement and product liability cases in the automotive and telecommunication areas; 100% of his cases resulted in a win or a very favorable settlement for his clients. In 2017, he was the lead expert witness in a case that resulted in a $25M jury award for his clients; this decision was later upheld on appeal. His deep technical expertise allows him to analyze patents and products in detail, and explain clearly (in expert reports, depositions, and court testimony) the main issues that the judge and jury need to internalize in order to comprehend the essence of the case. His extensive educational experience allows him to help judges and jurors understand the topic they are dealing with, instead of confusing them with unnecessary technical details.

After all, it takes excellent teaching skills and a deep understanding of a complex technical concept to convey the essence of that concept to non-experts without talking down to them.

In his industrial career, he designed and built telecom products such as DSL and Carrier Ethernet hardware and software, and has significant experience with international telecommunication standards (ITU-T). He has also worked in wireless communications (3GPP, Wi-Fi), primarily on digital signal processing methods for baseband transceivers.

In his academic career, Dr. Kanellakopoulos conducted research on adaptive control of nonlinear systems, with applications to automotive control systems, specifically ADAS (adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, lane keeping, vehicle collision avoidance) and active suspension. He directed a project on automation of heavy-duty vehicles as part of the California PATH Program; one of the most visible results of this research was the “Variable Time-Headway” algorithm for adaptive cruise control, which was demonstrated on a fully-automated heavy-duty (Class 8) 18-wheeler truck and has found widespread use in current adaptive cruise control systems. His UCLA team also designed and built a prototype full-size fully-automated electric vehicle that has been used for research purposes on multiple college campuses.

Dr. Kanellakopoulos has directed collaborative projects with several automotive/truck manufacturers and vendors (Ford, Mercedes-Benz, DaimlerChrysler, Freightliner, Gentex, Visteon). He is currently consulting for clients such as technology companies (on intellectual property strategy and product development), private equity firms (on due diligence for investment), and law firms (on expert witness matters).
