Marco Cognetti - Homepage

Up to February 2017, I was a Postdoctoral researcher at the Robotics Lab of Dipartimento di Ingegneria Informatica, Automatica e Gestionale (DIAG), "Sapienza - University of Rome".

The main topics of my research are the whole-body motion planning and control for humanoid robots. In particular, I'm facing the problem of task-constrained motion planning for humanoids, i.e. planning the motion of a humanoid robot that must execute a manipulation task, possibly requiring stepping, in environments cluttered by obstacles.

I'm also interested in the localization and control of a team of heterogeneous robot. In this research, a team is composed by an aerial vehicle (UAV) and several ground robots (UGVs). The idea is to fuse the supervising role of the UAV and the on-site point of view of the UGVs to accomplish several tasks.

From March 2011 to October 2011 I visited the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tuebingen under the supervision of Dr. Antonio Franchi.

From January 2015 to July 2015 I visited the Personal Robotics Lab at "The Robotics Institute - Carnegie Mellon University" under the supervision of Prof. Siddhartha Srinivasa.

From October 2012 to March 2016 I was a Ph.D. student at the Robotics Lab of Dipartimento di Ingegneria Informatica, Automatica e Gestionale (DIAG), "Sapienza - University of Rome"
