Bart
I am currently a PhD student (2016-now) at the Department of Computer, Control and Management Engineering "Antonio Ruberti" at Sapienza University of Rome.
I work within the Ro.Co.Co. Lab, under the supervision of Prof. Giorgio Grisetti.

Education and Research Experiences

November 2016 - today

Ph.D. Student in Engineering in Computer Science at "La Sapienza", University of Rome.
My advisor is Giorgio Grisetti.

April 2016 - October 2016

Research Assistant at "La Sapienza", University of Rome. My main commitments concerned SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) and Unsupervised Calibration.

October 2015

I received my Master's degree in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics from "La Sapienza" University of Rome. The title of my thesis was "Unsupervised Calibration of Wheeled Mobile Platforms"
My supervisor was Giorgio Grisetti.

October 2012

I received my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science Engineering from University of Naples "Federico II".
The title of my thesis was "Analisi e Simulazione del modello dinamico di un microelicottero"

Projects

April 2016 - October 2016

I've worked on ROVINA, a project funded from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) for the Exploration, Digital Preservation and Visualization of Archeological Sites.

July 2014 - November 2014

I have been working on the European Robotics Challenge EuRoC with the team RomaUno.

Research

For a full list of publications, consult my Google Scholar page

My research interests concern various aspects of the SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) problem, including long-term mapping and point cloud registration. Moreover, I dealt with the autonomous robot calibration problem.

2017

We proposed an approach for merging three-dimensional maps represented as pose graphs of point clouds. Our method can effectively deal with typical distortions affecting SLAM generated maps.
We showed the obtained results in this webgl page.
Refer to our work "3D Map Merging on Pose Graphs" for a full description of the algorithm.

2016

We released our framework for autonomous calibration of intrinsic and exstrinsic parameters of mobile platforms. Source code (ROS-based) can be found here. For a complete description of the implemented approach, refer to our ICRA16 paper "Unsupervised Calibration of Wheeled Mobile Platforms".

Teaching
