Davide A.Cucci, Laurea degree 2008, Laurea Specialistica degree 2011 is a Ph.D. Candidate at Politecnico di Milano. He was involved in the PRIN 2009 grant “ROAMFREE: Robust Odometry Applying Multi-sensor Fusion to Reduce Estimation Errors” as main developer of the ROAMFREE sensor fusion library, which is still subject of active research. During the QUADRIVIO project, founded by FILAS S.p.A. and Regione Lazio (Italy), he was responsible for the development of the localization and autonomous navigation modules for an all terrain mobile robot. His main interests lie in information fusion by means of optimization techniques, with main applications in mobile robot tracking and localization.

My active projects

My current interests are perception and sensor-fusion in mobile robotics, with applications to autonomous navigation.


A software library for pose tracking and sensor parameter self-calibration released under LGPL v3


For this autonomous ATV, I develop the pose tracking and trajectory following modules.


I supervised the ROS restyling and developed the pose-tracking with ROAMFREE and AMCL.
