Keynote Speaker of ROS Developers Conference
Enrico Mingo

Post-Doc at Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia

Enrico Mingo HoffmanWhy Enrico prefers ROS?

ROS simplifies the developing of complex robotics systems giving a well tested infrastructure as well as great tools. Furthermore the community is big and the learning rate curve is very fast!


About Enrico

Enrico Mingo Hoffman is a Post-Doc researcher in the Humanoids & Human Centered Mechatronics (HHCM) group, in IIT. He received his Bachelor's Degree in Electronics Engineering and Master's Degree in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, both at University of Rome "​ La Sapienza", in 2008 and 2011 respectively. In 2012 he was employed in PAL Robotics, Barcelona, on the REEM Project. During this period he worked on algorithms for navigation, SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) and localization. In 2016 he got his Ph.D. in Humanoid robotics at the Italian Institute of Technology. He was member of the WALK-MAN Team that competed to the DARPA Robotics Challenge, his main tasks regarded the model description, simulation, operational space control and robot software infrastructures. He is currently involved mainly in the WALK-MAN and COGIMON EU Projects as researcher.
His main interests are Humanoid robots Kinematics, task space whole body control, compliant interaction between robot and environment and software architectures for Humanoid robots.
