My research interest is focused on autonomous systems and robotics. The main challenge is to have robotic systems to autonomously and efficiently accomplish tasks in unstructured environments. This goal becomes even more complex when several robotic units are deployed in a common environment and they need to thightly cooperate.
Multi-robot systems raise many challenges.
My research interests maily consist in designing and testing decentralized control and coordination algorithms taking into consideration
communication or sensing constraints and, in general, limited information availability and constrained resources.
