DETAILS
Bio
Loris Roveda (Member, IEEE) received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy, in 2011 and 2015, respectively. He is currently a Permanent Senior Researcher with the Scuola Universitaria Professionale della Svizzera Italiana (SUPSI), Istituto Dalle Molle di studi sull’Intelligenza Artificiale (IDSIA), Università della Svizzera italiana (USI), Manno, Switzerland, working on AI and ML techniques applied to industrial robotics (such as robot control, human–robot collaboration, and dynamics identification). He has been involved in many national and European projects. He has been the coordinator of the EUROBENCH STEPbySTEP project, the EUROBENCH XSPINE project, and the EUROBENCH REMOTe_XSPINE project. He has been the P.I. of the H2020 CS2 ASSASSINN project.

DETAILS
Bio
Kevin Haninger is a researcher working on robots that make contact and dynamically interact with their environment. His work bridges between physical compliance and impedance control, developing mechatronic design methods, control architectures, and planning methods which enable highly-dynamic contact-rich manipulation and human-robot interaction.

DETAILS
Bio
Alessandro Saccon is an Associate Professor in nonlinear control and robotics at the Mechanical Engineering Department, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His areas of expertise include nonlinear control and estimation, robotics, numerical optimal control and optimization, multi-body mechanics, and geometric mechanics. Alessandro’s research interests are focused on modeling, analysis, and control of complex and highly dynamical robotic and mechatronic systems. His current research efforts are directed toward the development and validation of innovative control strategies for robotic systems with multiple intermittent contacts, with application in the field of dynamic robot manipulation and locomotion.
