Case Summary:

A perception controls systems lead engineer in the field of control systems engineering hired North America Immigration Law Group to file an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. Being a dedicated firm and having successfully petitioned more than 25,000 employment-based visa cases, we carefully checked if he qualified for the EB-2 NIW visa category. Upon reviewing his credentials, we found that our client not only held a Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering but has also accomplished a good number of publications records and peer review experience in his field. His research resulted in 7 peer-reviewed journal articles, 6 conference articles, and 15 granted U.S. patents with at least 10 peer-reviews to date. He also held a substantial citation record of 160 citations gathered from several other expert researchers in the field according to the Google Scholar tool. This assured us of the quality of his research work in his chosen field.

Furthermore, his research work holds national importance to the United States of America as his proposed endeavor is to utilize his knowledge in control systems, robotics, and machine learning to invent and design advanced algorithms, software, sensors, and actuators, to develop smarter devices and autonomous systems with applications in the automotive industry, robotics, and in consumer electronics to make people’s lives safer and more convenient.

After a thorough evaluation of his research work, we were certain that it is of great importance to the United States because his research applies advanced technologies and algorithms to improve the safety of vehicles around the world through the utilization of devices and software that make vehicles more intelligent and autonomous.

Our client, thus, has not only completed and published the results of his research in the field but his research also has a major influence on other scholars’ understanding of topics, as noted by one of the research groups: “[Client’s]work is an impactful reference for the successful development for creating a robot that has a stable walking trajectory.” While another research team utilized his work to emphasize his actuation system by stating: “[Client’s] actuation system can be compensated for energy loss that occurs during walking.” These statements thus fostered our confidence in our client’s already strong case.

Furthermore, his case was supported by including five recommendation letters that he obtained from his fellow experts in the field. One of the recommenders stated:

“I write to confirm the importance of [client] to the advancement of control system engineering research… Almost every person in the United States either owns a vehicle or uses one on a daily basis, and it is especially noteworthy that [client’s proprietary software] has been acquired via a technology transfer by a well-established motors vehicles company. This technology is key to the early detection of faults in tire that are capable of causing major damage to vehicles and risk to drivers and passengers when left unchecked. Since this novel software is a key, cost-effective optimization of this motors vehicles company, [client] is clearly a valuable research asset to the U.S.”

Proudly, with our comprehensive advice surrounding his petition, the USCIS granted our client the I-140 NIW approval without requesting further evidence [RFE]. We would like to sincerely thank our client for his constant confidence in our expertise. We wish him very well in his future endeavors.
