6 Pasquale Cirillo s Curriculum Vitæ 4 09/ /07/2010 Bachelor s Thesis in Computer Engineering (110/110). The thesis, titled Sistema di acquisizione embedded per sensori in applicazioni robotiche, was carried out within the DEXMART project funded by the European Community and to which the DII of the Facoltà di Ingegneria - SUN participates. The topics covered allowed the learning of the main programming methodologies for embedded programmable systems. Specifically, the Microchip PIC microcontrollers were used for the realization of devices that allow the acquisition and the A/D conversion of transducers analog signals, such as optoelectronic sensors and tactile sensors for the measurement of angular variations of the joints of a data glove. In a second prototype to increment the number of analog channels and to improve the sample rate an external A/D converter, which is capable of communicate with the microcontroller via SPI protocol, was used. In the second phase of the work the acquisition board has been synchronized with a VICON MOCAP system to acquire data from the transducers and mocap alternatively used on the DII robotic sensorized glove. The circuit was implemented first on a printed circuit board via CNC machine generating the SPICE model in Target3001! CAD software and, later, in SMD technology the SPICE model and the gerber files using Eagle CAD software. Also, in the thesis.net C# language was used to realize an application for the data acquisition from the acquisition board developed using RS232 protocol and for displaying the data in the MATLAB environment. The university studies covered the following thematics: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Elements of Programming (C/C++), Electronic Calculators - Assembler (simulations with M68000), OOP programming (Java), Governance of Information Systems, English language, Electrotechnical Theory, Telecommunications, Probability and Information, Fundamentals of Electronics, Operating Systems, Systems Theory, Signal Theory, Electronic Measurements, Electromagnetic fields. 21/04/ /05/2009 Seminar at Elasis in Pomigliano D Arco (NA).

Quercia in Marcianise (CE). 27/06/2006 ECDL - European Computer Driving License. 5 Awards September 2013 Automatica.it 2013 Best Interactive Presentation. Best interactive presentation for the article submitted to Automatica.it 2013 (Sidra2013) titled From the DEX- MART tactile sensor to the SAPHARI artificial skin. September 2013 Third Prize in Altera Design Contest 2012/13 InnovateItaly. Team manager and member of the project titled An inertial haptic interface for robotic applications. In the work will be demonstrated that inertial measurement can be used to acquire rich data about human movements and gestures, that can be utilized to control any robotic systems or in videoludic purposes. A wireless six/nine degree-of-freedom inertial measurement unit (IMU) will be used to collect the data. Utilizing the acquired data, an elaboration algorithm will provide the orientation of the sensor with respect an earth reference frame. These information can be used to control the movements of a robotic system, i.e., to control a quadcopter or to control a robotic arm. So, the sensor, supported by an intelligent unit, i.e. FPGA, will be an inertial haptic interface, that can be introduced in videoludic, robotic and medical (i.e., inertial interface for assistant robots) applications. December 2011 Second Prize in Altera Design Contest 2011 InnovateItaly. Team member of the project titled Real Time Control of an Anthropomorphic Robotic Arm using FPGA. The project objective was the implementation of a control system for a 6DOF anthropomorphic arm using the FPGA granted by Altera with the Altera DE1 Board. The robotic arm was also developed within the same project using commercial components such as Hitec servomotors and profiles of lightweight aluminum. Using two Altera DE1 Board e two Xbee Pro wireless modules, the user can steer the manipulator at long distance with a PC keyboard. The team has tried to design a low-cost control system for a little robotic arm (using an emerging technology) that can be used for the manipulation of dangerous objects (chemicals and toxicants), for rescue operations and in any operation in which human intervention is critical. The project has been developed using the software and the technologies granted by Altera: Altera DE1 Board with FPGA Cyclone II, Quartus II 11.0, SOPC Builder and Qsys, NIOS II 11.0 IDE. 6 Publications and Proceedings 6.1 International Journal Paper [IJ1] A.
