Reseach Projects:
FOCUS EU project will share experiences and best-practices to stimulate the take-up of European project results and investigate how to best exploit synergies to define an approach that can also work for future clusters.
FibreMap aims at the development of an automatic quality control and feedback mechanism to improve draping of carbon fibres on complex parts by exploiting 3D image processing and autonomous scanning with a vision guided industrial robot.
ThermoBot developed a new, automatic inspection process for crack detection. The technology is based on an autonomous inspection robot that exploits thermography to detect and classify cracks. A heating system induces the heat flow on the inspected part. Cracks become visible as a significant discontinuity in heat flow.

Emanuele Menegatti is Associate Professor of University of Padua.

Menegatti is teaching "3D Data Processing" and "Computer Architecture" and “Educational Robotics for teachers”.

His research interests are in the field of Robot Vision. In particular, he has been working on omnidirectional vision, on distributed vision systems, on 2D and 3D industrial robot vision, and on RGB-D vision algorithms for mobile robots.

Menegatti was Coordinator of the European project Thermobot and Local Investigator for the European Projects 3DComplete and FibreMap, and Focus. He has been Principal Investigator of several other research grants.

In 2005, Menegatti was a founding partners of two spin-off of the University of Padua: IT+Robotics srl and EXiMotion srl.

Menegatti published more than 30 journal papers, more than 120 conference papers, 2 books, 4 book chapters, and two industrial patents.
