Sebastiano Chiodini is Research Associate in Mechanical and Thermal Measurements at the Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Padova, Italy. Previously, he was a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow with the Centre of Studies and Activities for Space “G. Colombo”, University of Padova. He received a Ph.D. degree in Space Sciences, Technologies and Measurements from the University of Padova in 2017. He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Padova, and the École centrale de Lyon under the T.I.M.E. double degree program. In 2016, he participated in the JPL Visiting Student Researchers Program (JVSRP) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA, USA, working on a collaborative visual localization method for rovers, designed to hop and tumble across the surface of comets and asteroids. He has been involved in the development and qualification of the COver Mechanism (COM) of the JANUS telescope. He collaborated with ALTEC SpA, Turin, Italy, for the development of the localization algorithms for ESA ExoMars rover. His research interests are focused on the design and development of machine vision-based measurement systems for drones and rovers, LiDAR-based measurement systems for robotics and autonomous navigation, and the design and testing of mechanisms for space applications.
