Luca Maule received his MEng in mechatronics engineering from the University of Trento (Italy), specializing in robotic. He is currently a PhD student in materials, mechatronics and system engineering at the University of Trento. His research fields are augmented reality and computer animation applied to industrial automation and human rehabilitation.

Tomasin Paolo

The 23rd March 2016 I obtained a Master's Degree in Mechatronics Engineering from University of Trento. I'm a research fellow at University of Trento. I work on the project “PAT Ausilia” in which a lot of other Researchers and I are trying to improve the process of physical & mental rehabilitation.

Covre Nicola

After graduating in Aerospace Engineering at Polimi in 2016, I enrolled in the Master in Machatronics Engineering at Unitn.
I obtained the title of the master's course in 2018 by spending a semester in Melbourne, Australia, by means of the Bilateral Agreements scholarship, and developing my thesis project in Saarbrucken, Germany, in a six-monthly collaboration with DFKI.
I am currently a doctoral student at Unitn, developing my research project on the measurement of physical-mechanical parameters for regenerative vertebral prosthesis and human posture optimization in collaboration with the University of Nara, Japan.

Luchetti Alessandro

27 years old, graduated in Mechanical engineering at Polytechnic University of Marche and specialized in Mechatronic Engineering at the University of Trento in both cases with honors. During his master, he participated in the international Formula SAE competition as tech manager of the suspension group of the E-Agle Trento racing team. After his master, the first year of his research fellowship, he worked in robotic grinding of Titanium-alloys welded components for aeronautic application for the MiRo laboratory of the University of Trento and Fly Spa (TN). Now, his research on augmented reality continues in the laboratory of the rof. Hirokazu Kato at the Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST), Japan.
