Maria Vittoria Minniti is working in the field of motion planning and control from mobile manipulation. So far, her main work platform has been a robot balancing on a ball with an arm mounted on top. Her current focus is oriented towards controlling such a robot to achieve autonomous tasks, such as localizing itself and manipulating objects.
