Cane 2.0

June 12, 2017

Let me cite two press articles recently appeared.

They present the prototype solution developed by Prof Rus at CSAIL mit and shown at ICRA in Singapore. I am a coauthor of the paper.

The work was partially supported by ABF.

The First is on The Economist
The second is on the MIT News

On Friday February 17th, ’17

Room  P 1.4 (ex FA-1-D)

Engineering Department ‘Enzo Ferrari’

University of Modena and Reggio Emilia

LAURA GIARRE’  will give a seminar entitled 

Past, Present and Future Research and Interests


Past: Starting from some of my recent lines of research and projects (identification, dynamical networks, smart grid, IOT, assistive technologies), I frame them in an unique picture: a Smart City offering new services based on pervasive technologies. Present: I focus my attention to two recent projects for the visually impaired people I am involved into: Arianna Project – a Smartphone-based Navigation System and 5th sense Project – Situational Awareness using spatial navigation and object identification. Future: Possible integration of my competences and international networks with Department research lines.


Prof. Laura Giarré is an engineer and a professor, working at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Department of Engineering, Modena, Italy. Her research interests are primarily in Identification and Networked Systems. Laura Giarré received the Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering from the Università di Firenze, Florence, Italy and the Ph.D. degree in System Engineering from the Università di Bologna, Bologna, Italy, in 1986 and 1992, respectively. She has held visiting positions in the University of California at Santa Barbara (1999 and 2006) and CSAIL, MIT (2015). She was Assistant Professor at Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy (1993-1998) and Associate Professor at the Università di Palermo, Palermo, Italy (1998-2016). She has served as Associate Editor of Systems and Control Letters, (1999-2012) and IEEE Transaction on Automatic Control (2012-2015). In 2010 she was vice-chair of SING6, chair of the Challenges ABF MIT Workshop in 2012.2013 e 2015 and General Char of MED’14, in 2014.

I have reported on an excel file the number of professor (FP), associate professor (AP) and researcher (E) in Italy, divided by gender.

I have taken as example three macro sector of engineering (9G:Control+biomedical), (9H:telecommunications and electromagnetism) (9F: Computer Science)

One  macro sector of Mathematics (1A) and one macro sector of Biology (5B)

Clearly in biology and mathematics the number of graduated male and female is almost the same, while in engineering is around the 20%, but in all cases,  you can see that the number of male in  higher position is incredibly higher.

I reported the percentage of female with respect to the total number.

here the data:

Telecomm/electromagnetism 131 6 154 29 114 29
% 4.379562 15.84699 20.27972
control/biomed 121 18 144 41 74 29
% 12.94964 22.16216 28.15534
Computer 155 27 251 42 148 26
% 14.83516 14.33447 14.94253
Math 493 110 495 325 286 289
% 18.24212 39.63415 50.26087
Biology 48 26 87 81 70 100
% 35.13514 48.21429 58.82353
