THE CORE TEAM
CEO – Vehicle Control, Localization and 3D Vision System
Mattia Tavernini is the CEO and co-founder of Robosense Srl.
Before being named CEO in 2016, Mattia has covered the role of Research and Development Engineer since 2012. He received a B.S. degree in Industrial engineering, an M.S. degree in Mechatronic Engineering from the University of Trento, Trento, Italy, and a Ph.D. degree in Space Sciences, Technologies, and Measurements from the University of Padova in 2006, 2009 and 2013, respectively. During his Ph.D. research, he was involved in ITER – International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor collaborating with Instituto de Plasmas e Fusao Nuclear – Laboratorio Associado, IST, University of Lisbon.
During the past decade, his work has focused mainly on developing innovative solutions in the industrial logistic field, including mobile robot localization and control with camera and laser, sensor fusion, 3D data processing for object detection and measuring, with important collaboration with important Italian and European companies. He also collaborates in projects that involve bio-medical and rehabilitation technologies.

Optimization Algorithms and 3D Vision Systems
Matteo Zanetti received the MS degree in Mechatronic Engineering in 2014, and the Ph.D. degree in Materials, Mechatronics and Systems Engineering in 2019, both from the University of Trento (Italy).
His work focuses on sensor fusion algorithms for mobile robot localization and 3D vision systems.
Mobile Vehicle and Human Machine Interaction
Luca Maule received his MEng in mechatronics engineering, specializing in robotic in 2014 and the Ph.D. degree in Materials, Mechatronics and System Engineering in 2019, both from the University of Trento (Italy).
In 2016 he obtained the qualification to practice the profession of engineer from the University of Trento (Italy). Currently, its field of work is the research and development of integrated solutions in the field of mobile robotics and human-machine interaction in clinical and industrial application.
Mixed Reality and Human Technologies
Alessandro Luchetti is graduated in Mechanical engineering at Polytechnic University of Marche and specialized in Mechatronic Engineering at the University of Trento in both cases with honors.
During his master, he participated in the international Formula SAE competition as tech manager of the suspension group of the E-Agle Trento racing team. After his master, the first year of his research fellowship, he worked in robotic grinding of Titanium-alloys welded components for aeronautic application for the MiRo laboratory of the University of Trento and Fly Spa (TN).
His research on augmented reality continued in the laboratory of the Prof. Hirokazu Kato at the Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST), Japan. Today his passion for new technologies focuses his attention on the study of the advantages that their interaction with humans brings in smart factories and the clinical field.
Luca Baglivo PhD is an Additive Manufacture Engineer. In the last threes he focused on mechatronic prototyping technologies, especially 3D printing. Formerly technical coordinator with the ProM Facility of Trentino Sviluppo, he currently is process owner for a private company producing metal additive manufacturing parts.
He was a Senior Researcher at EURAC – Institute for Renewable Energy, postdoctoral researcher with the University of Aveiro and the Laboratory of Systems and Robotics – IST Lisbon and a postdoctoral researcher with the University of Trento at the MIRo Lab.
His research was on object identification and localization for autonomous vehicles, motion planning for autonomous industrial vehicles, cooperative Terrain-Aided Navigation of underwater autonomous vehicles (AUVs) formations, then on energy efficiency in buildings.
Author of more than 40 publications in books, refereed international journals and national/international conference proceedings.
