Luca Bonamini was born in La Spezia, Italy, in 1992. He received the Bachelor Degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2015 from University of Genova, and the Master Degree in Robotics and Automation Engineering in 2018 from University of Pisa, with a thesis on a shared autonomy framework for tele-operated robots. Since 2018 he is a Research Fellow at Centro di Ricerca E. Piaggio, University of Pisa, where he is working in RoboTeamItalia, the only italian team that partecipates in Roborace, the first world championship of completely autonomous racing cars. As Head of Perception, his job is to develop and implement SLAM and pose estimation and inertial navigation algorithms for deployment on a self-driving racing car (Kalman filters, EKF, UKF, Particle Filter, etc.) using different sensors including LIDARs, cameras and radars.Download Printable Resume
In order to improve the operator’s performance during tele-operation, I have developed and implemented a Shared Autonomy Control and a AR system so that the operator can avoid any obstacles in a reactive way, or supervise the navigation and leave to the control the task of correcting the trajectory.
Localisation systems are of paramount importance for the real world deployment of autonomous robots. In this work I focus on LiDAR based and GNSS denied localisation for autonomous racing cars, which has been testing during Roborace Localisation Challenge.
A Watershed algorithm is applied to a video taken from a run of an autonomous racing car (at a speed of about 150 kph) at GoodWood Festival of Speed, in order to detect passable road.
