About me

Daniele Ludovico obtained a PhD in Bioengineering and Robotics at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) and the University of Genoa. His PhD thesis focused on the modelling and control of a long-reach cable-driven hyper-redundant manipulator for industrial inspection.

He is currently working at IIT on robotics for industrial site inspection, maintenance and safety as Post Doc of the Robotic Automation and Inspection Laboratory (RAIN Lab)  in the Advanced Robotics department (ADVR).


My activities at IIT include the following projects:

2021 - now - INAIL - Development of wearable systems for mitigating injuries due to falling from height.

​2018 - 2021 - Ansaldo Energia - Development of an inspection robot for the inspection of combustion chambers.
