About

Pietro Balatti is a PhD candidate at the Human-Robot Interfaces and physical Interaction Lab, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, and at the Department of Information Engineering, University of Pisa, Italy. He received the BD and the MD, cum laude, in computer science and engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Italy, in 2014 and 2016, respectively. He was member of team "CoAware" that won the KUKA Innovation Award in April 2018, who was responsible of the robot control framework. His main research interests are focused in the enhancement of robot interaction autonomy, within the fields of adaptive impedance control and physical human-robot interaction.
