Abstract

I will start my presentation by briefly over-viewing my previous experience in robotics as a mechanical engineer. Then, I will discuss my recent research interests which range over mobile robotics and bio-robotics. Concerning mobile robotics, I will discuss applications to remote health care by means of audio/video web based stream carried by autonomous vehicles. Then, concerning bio-robotics, I will discuss a project for the full design of electronic control lower limb prostheses, from mechanical components machining to embedded software. I will conclude briefly describing a just started project in motion detection.
