Stefano Divan received his PhD in Informatics and Communication Technologies at the University of Trento, Italy, in 2019, and his master degree in Mechatronic at the University of Trento, Italy, in 2015. His main research areas are human-robot interaction, driving systems for autonomous vehicles and digital electronic systems applied to robotics. He has contributed to several publications in the field of assistive robotics, which is the main research topic of his PhD held at the DISI department at the University of Trento. He is currently managing the development and the hardware-software integration of a robotic platform developed in the context of the European project ACANTO (, mainly focusing on the modeling and on the realization of both the software architecture and on the mechanical design. His programming skills ranges from the C/C++ language for the robot managing and for the implementation of algorithms exploited for rehabilitation purposes to high-level languages such as Java, JavaScript, HTML5 e QT for the development of GUI. Ha has also focused on the development and on the programming of electronic embedded boards to manage sensors and actuators relying on microcontrollers (MICROCHIP – STM).
