Software engineering and electronics are my hobbies since forever. Add to them an insane willingness to know how stuff works.

In 2010 I discovered by chance the world of multirotor and UAVs. Initially, they just were simple Arduino based projects, but soon moved to more advanced platforms. It is 2012 when I started collaborating with the OpenPilot project and later, in 2015, co-founded (with several of OpenPilot former developers), the LibrePilot project as firmware and architecture lead.

Recently I’m interested in several other topics, including mobile robotics, ROS, products design and 3d printing.

Some of the projects I’m currently working on are Slammer, a rover robot and uNav2, an advanced motor control board for mobile robots
