The information published in this page are entirely managed by FEDERICO LORENZO MORO who is completely responsible for it.

Federico L. Moro is a researcher at the Institute of Industrial Technologies and Automation, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, ITIA-CNR, where he is working on the development and control of lower-body exoskeletons for force augmentation, and on safe human-robot interaction for collaborative robots within the EU funded projects EUROC and FourByThree. Before joining ITIA-CNR he was a Post-Doc researcher at the Humanoids & Human Centred Mechatronics Lab, Department of Advanced Robotics, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), working on the motion control of humanoid robots within the EU funded project WALK-MAN, particularly on whole-body control, also in collaboration with the Honda Research Institute. He is Founder and Corresponding Co-Chair of the IEEE-RAS Technical Committee on Whole-Body Control (WBC), and Editor of the International Journal of Humanoid Robotics (IJHR). Served as Guest Editor of the International Journal of Humanoid Robotics (IJHR) Special Issue on "Whole-Body Control for Robots in the Real World", and Organizer of the IROS14 Workshop on "Whole-Body Control for Robots in the Real World", and of the Humanoids15 Workshop on "Proprioceptive and Exteroceptive Data Fusion for State Estimation and Whole-Body Control of Humanoid Robots". He is author of several peer-reviewed publications, and served as reviewer for most of the main robotics journals and conferences. Federico L. Moro received his Bachelor's degree (2007) and his Master's degree (2010) in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, and his Master's degree (2010) in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Chicago, with theses on the control and energy optimization of locomotion of the humanoid robot LARP. In these years he also collaborated with the Institute Mihajlo Pupin of Belgrade. In 2011 he joined the Department of Advanced Robotics, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) as a PhD Student. His PhD research includes the work on the kinematic Motion Primitives (kMPs), aimed to transfer human skills to the COMAN robot. This work has also been extended to quadrupedal locomotion in collaboration with EPFL. He has also been working on the development of a Whole-Body Motion Control (WBMC) system for humanoid robots, jointly with the Honda Research Institute.
