Safety and Security in Industry and healthcare

Safety, security, precision, and performance are key characteristic of smart factories and living of the future. A multidisciplinary approach to integrate these features in advanced technology is illustrated through 5 themes: Autonomous industrial vehicles, an Open e-Infrastructure for designing medical devices, Augmented Reality, Tactile Internet in Cyber Physical Systems and Ubiquitous Computing. A people-centered approach underlines our activities, including capacity building in developing countries and nurturing curiosity and competencies in ICT in youngsters through interactive LEGO robots.

• Manolo Garabini. Manolo Garabini received the Laurea degree in mechanical engineering and the doctoral degree in robotics from the E. Piaggio Research Center at the University of Pisa where he is employed as Researcher. His main research interests are in the design, planning and control of soft and adaptive robots, from single actuators, to ened-effectors (hands, grippers, feet), to complex multi-dof systems. A part of his activity has been devoted to theoretically demonstrate the effectiveness of soft and adaptive robots in high performance, high efficiency and resilient tasks via analytical and numerical optimization tools. He contributed to the realization of modular Variable Stiffness Actuators one of the products of qbrobotics, a company he co-founded. He contributed in the design of the joints and the lower body of the humanoid robot WALK-MAN, took part at the DARPA Robotics Challenge and at a field test in Amatrice, Italy after a disastrous earthquake event. Recently he contributed to the development of an efficient and effective compliance planning algorithms for interaction under uncertainties.
• Danilo Caporale. Danilo Caporale received the Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Automation and Control Engineering in 2009 and 2011, respectively, from the Politecnico di Milano. In 2015 he received the Ph.D. degree in Information Technology from the same institution, with a thesis on robust control devices for railway traction and braking. During his Ph.D. studies, he spent visiting periods at Imperial College, UK, at University of Newcastle, NSW, Australia, and at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA. Since 2015 he is a Post-Doc Researcher at Centro di Ricerca E. Piaggio, Universita' di Pisa, where he is working in the EU Projects Walk-Man and ILIAD on planning and control algorithms for applications to robotic systems. His research interests are robust and optimal control, with applications to vehicle, biological and humanoid robotic systems.

He works very close to the clinical needs and some of his inventions are patented
• Carmelo De Maria. Carmelo De Maria is an assistant professor of bioengineering in the Department of Ingegneria dell’Informazione at the University of Pisa, Italy, and affiliated with the Research Center “E. Piaggio.” He is a guest professor in bioengineering at Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia, and member of the African Biomedical Engineering Consortium secretariat. His research interests focus on additive manufacturing/rapid prototyping technologies, with particular focus in biofabrication. In parallel he is advocating the Open Source approach in the development of medical devices, for reducing the cost and increasing the quality in the healthcare field.
• Di Pietro Licia. Licia Di Pietro is currently a PhD Biomedical Engineering Student at Research Centre E. Piaggio of University of Pisa, Italy. She received the Bachelor and Master Degree in Biomedical Engineering from University of Pisa, Italy, in 2014 and 2017, respectively. In 2016 she has enrolled an Erasmus for Traineeship program at Hilditch Group at Malmesbury, England, working on her Master Thesis project entitled “Different approaches to improve healthcare in Africa through Biomedical Engineering”. During this period, she spent one month in Kampala, Uganda, working as volunteer with Amalthea Trust Foundation, to help provide for the sustainable maintenance of medical equipment through the provision of training programs for the recipients, including test equipment and workshop facilities. Her research interest includes Global Health with particular attention to developing countries. She is working on manufacturing of open-source and low cost medical devices, compliant with the International standards to assure the safety, quality and performance of medical devices.
• Giuseppe Caruso. Giuseppe Caruso is a Post Doc Researcher of Department of Ingegneria dell’Informazione at University of Pisa. His research is focused on applications of Tactile Internet, the next evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT), encompassing human-to-machine and machine-to-machine interaction, for enabling real-time interactive systems in several industrial, societal and business use cases.
