Topics for master theses in Control Engineering at Cartoni - Professional camera support

Cartoni (https://www.cartoni.com) is an international leader in designing, manufacturing, and marketing professional camera supports for motion picture and television industries.

Based in Rome (Via di Portonaccio) since 1935, the company has a long history of mechanical innovation that ensured its success (and multiple awards). Cartoni owns and uses in its products 33 different patents on fluid action counterbalance systems and tripods. More recently, it started a research line on automation of the camera usage with its multi-dof systems of supports 
(see the video).

Possible topics of interest for a master thesis in Control Engineering, with a curriculum in robotics,  include (in order of temporal immediacy):

- Optimal tuning of PID laws and general improvement of the remote control system of the single driving axes (up to 5) supporting the camera motion.

- Position vs. velocity control schemes, with associated programming, acquisition and accurate repetition of desired sequences of camera motions.
 
- Study and design of an integrated control system that coordinates the motion of the individual axes, driven by image features extracted and tracked in the camera frame (visual servoing).

- Feasibility analysis of a system that tracks in real time the pose (position and orientation) of the camera, based on infrared sensing (or similar technology) and passive targets in the environment and on the mobile subject (indoor and outdoor).
 
The company is registered with JobSoul Sapienza. Newly graduated engineers in the area of automatic control and mechatronics are also being sought for expanding the current R&D team.

In case of interest, please contact prof. Alessandro De Luca (deluca@diag.uniroma1.it).
