Valerio De Carolis is a Robotics and Autonomous Systems Engineer.
He is PhD candidate at the Ocean Systems Laboratory, Heriot-Watt University, UK. He is currently working on energy-aware architectures, energy efficiency and health management in the context of robotics and autonomous systems. He is also working with the Nessie AUV, an autonomous underwater vehicle used for research purposes, extending its hardware and software capabilities. He has experience with other commercial underwater vehicles, like REMUS AUV, IVER3 AUV and with ASV C-Enduro surface vehicle. His interests include machine learning, diagnostics, fault-tolerance, systems engineering and complex software architectures for autonomous vehicles and systems.
He joined the Ocean Systems Laboratory in June 2013 to work on the EU FP7 PANDORA project on persistent autonomy for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). He received his Master in Telecommunications Engineering at Sapienza, University of Rome (Italy) focusing on Remote Sensing and Radar Systems with a thesis on “Beamforming and Sources Classification Techniques for Sensors Arrays”. He received his Bachelor in Aerospace Information Engineering at Sapienza, University of Rome.
