Curriculum

Principali interessi di ricerca:
  • Progettazione di sistemi di controllo per robot, ossia degli algoritmi che permettono ai robot di muoversi (controllo di posizione o del moto) e reagire all'ambiente (controllo di forza o dell'interazione) sia in ambienti industriali che in applicazioni mediche o di servizio. Il controllo dei robot è una tematica sempre più importante nella robotica collaborativa dove le macchine devono interagire con un ambiente non strutturato e per lo più ignoto garantendo allo stesso tempo precisione, affidabilità e sicurezza
  • Robotica riabilitativa che offre aiuto nel facilitare il recupero delle funzioni motorie e trova maggiore diffusione in ambito neuroriabilitativo
  • Robotica assistiva che sostituisce interamente una parte del corpo (ad esempio un arto o una mano) o che agisce in parallelo alla parte non funzionale o con funzionalità ridotta, apportando forze di sostegno.
  • Algoritmi di stima per sistemi di attuazione non convenzionale, macchine industriali, applicazioni domestiche e modelli biologici.

Topic Description Research area
AI, Robotics & Automatic Control Robotics is concerned with the development of systems that make the intelligent connection between perception and action. For this reason, robotics is strongly interdisciplinary, including mechanical and electronic design, computation and data fusion algorithms, machine learning and reasoning, and motion control and environment interaction methods. In the last years, robotics systems have matured in terms of safety and reliability and they can now work in delicate environments and in direct contact with people. In case of demanding cognitive tasks, robots are usually supported by a human operator, in a teleoperation mode. A well established example of teleoperation system is a surgical robot, in which a surgeon directly moves the robotic tools to carry out the intervention. A new research direction is the addition of autonomous functions to the robotic systems. To reach this goal, we need to improve the perceptual and cognitive capabilities of the robots, to interact safely with a complex real environment. Some of the research topics addressed at the University of Verona include: control and system theory, modeling and analysis of human perception, coordination of multiple-robot systems, distributed sensing and control algorithms, teleoperation algorithms, and analysis of the physical interaction of humans and robots.
