12/10/2010–30/01/2013 Master’s Degree in Computer Engineering, curriculum “Automation” (summa cum laude), at SUN in Aversa (CE). The thesis work, titled “A Sensor
Skin for Advanced Robotic Applications”, had as its primary objective the development
of a first prototype of an artificial skin intended for advanced robotic applications. With
the growing interest in Human-Robot Interaction, many research groups are attempting
to provide to humanoid robots, or to simple manipulators, of distributed sensor that can
give them the sense of touch, which is essential for the execution of manipulation tasks
and of tasks in an unstructured environments, where robots and humans share the same
workspace and where, therefore, there is a need that the robot can autonomously detect
danger for surrounding objects, and for the human. Cover a large area, which can be the
whole body of a robot or a part of it, is not an established practice, in fact, for the development of an “artificial skin” various figures of merit are emerging: consumption in terms
of power required for the proper operation of a distributed sensor, robustness, modularity
and flexibility to allow the skin to adapt to curved surfaces of the robot, spatial resolution.
In the work carried out in the thesis, a prototype of a modular skin based on optoelectronic
technology has been developed. Each module, equipped with a microcontroller, is arranged
in a chain (Daisy-Chain configuration) and communicates with the other modules via a
serial interface (SPI) used for the data transfer at high speed. For the realization of a
system that was as modular as possible, a software for the embedded devices has been
developed, able to identify, autonomously, the number of modules connected to the chain
and, therefore able to adapt, without making any alterations to the hardware and software
architecture of the system, to the changes of the skin configuration. The various modules,
first made with the technique of photoengraving, were designed using the CAD/CAM
Eagle software, already thinking to the future developments which provide, in the first
instance, the production in rigid-flex technology of the skin modules.
The developed skin, updated with an optoelectronic proximity sensor, has been installed
on an ABB industrial robot executing a repetitive task: with it, the robot was able to
recognize the presence of a neighborhood object so it can reduce the operation speed
proportionally to the object distance; moreover, the robot is stopped when a contact
occurs, that is detected by the skin sensor.
The studied were focused on the learning of the basic concepts about: Automatic Control;
Telecommunication Systems; Electromagnetic and Photonic Technologies for Transmission

15/11/2011–15/01/2012 Training inter lauream carried out at the Automatic Control Laboratory of the “Dipartimento di Ingegneria Industriale e dell’Informazione” of the SUN. The
objectives of the work were the design and the development of a first prototype of a modular artificial skin for advanced robotic applications based on optoelectronic technology and
on off-the-shelf components. The system developed is constituted of different intelligent
modules (Master module and one or more Slave modules), which are implemented with a
Microchip PIC microcontroller, that communicate via the SPI interface.
The training ended with the submission of the paper titled “A Modular and Low-Cost Artificial Skin for Robotic Applications” to 4th IEEE RAS/EMBS International Conference
on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics.

09/2006–20/07/2010 Bachelor’s Thesis in Computer Engineering (110/110). The thesis,
titled “Progettazione ed ottimizzazione di un sistema di acquisizione per sistemi multisensorizzati”, was carried out within the DEXMART project funded by the European
Community and to which the DII of the Facolt di Ingegneria - SUN participates. The
topics covered allowed the learning of the main programming methodologies for embedded
programmable systems. Specifically, the Microchip PIC microcontrollers were used for the
realization of devices that allow the acquisition and the A/D conversion of transducers
signals, such as optoelectronic sensors and tactile sensors for the measurement of angular
variations of the joints of a data glove. The system was also optimized with the introduction
of an external A/D converter, which is capable of communicate with the microcontroller
via SPI protocol and which provides a higher number of analog channels and a higher
sample rate. Later, the acquisition board has been synchronized with a VICON MOCAP
system to acquire data alternatively from the mocap cameras and from the transducers
used on the DII robotic sensorized glove. The circuit was implemented first on a printed
circuit board via CNC machine and, later, in SMD technology after the develop of the
SPICE model via Target3001! and Eagle CAD software. The thesis has also allowed the
learning of the .NET C# language, used to realize an application for the data acquisition
through RS232 protocol and for displaying the data in the MATLAB environment.

September 2013 Automatica.it 2013 Best Interactive Presentation. Best interactive presentation for the article submitted to Automatica.it 2013 (Sidra2013) titled “From the DEXMART tactile sensor to the SAPHARI artificial skin”.
September 2013 3rd Prize in Altera Design Contest 2012-2013 InnovateItaly. Team member
of the project titled “An inertial haptic interface for robotic applications”. In the work will
be demonstrated that inertial measurement can be used to acquire rich data about human
movements and gestures, that can be utilized to control any robotic systems or in videoludic
purposes. A wireless six/nine degree-of-freedom inertial measurement unit (IMU) will be
used to collect the data. Utilizing the acquired data, an elaboration algorithm will provide
the orientation of the sensor with respect an earth reference frame. These information can
be used to control the movements of a robotic system, i.e., to control a quadcopter or to
control a robotic arm. So, the sensor, supported by an intelligent unit, i.e. FPGA, will
be an inertial haptic interface, that can be introduced in videoludic, robotic and medical
(i.e., inertial interface for assistant robots) applications.
