Major projects actives at this time


Is a bigger robot for outdoor exploration. This robot have tracks with an articulated damper system. Panther is a tracked robot and mount a NVIDIA Jetson TX1 board to high level control and computer vision, uNAV for motor control and Stereolabs ZED camera.


With an NVIDIA Jeston TK1 and an ASUS xTion sensor. This robot can work autonomously in a house and with a SLAM can build a map. Dude is wheeled robot, unicycle type, controlled by uNAV motor control board.


Is the first motor end motion control for DC brushed motors in only 4x4cm fully controlled by ROS. This board is a open source project and all code is available on github. With a dsPIC33 you can control in angle, velocity and torque two motors and receive all telemetry and diagnostic information.

I was born in 1986 in Rome, Italy and I’m a Ph.D. in System Engineer. I’ve long experience in robotics, both for academic carrier and hobby, let I’ve gained a significant skill in this field from my experiences in different kind of robotics.

I’m graduated with honor in “Automation and system engineering” in 2012 at University of Sapienza in Rome with a thesis on: “An autonomous mobile platform in a augmented reality”. The different components designed and built for the platform are described in details with emphasis on the various steps of the project implementation, the control systems and the supervisory control program, which make possible the simulation of the platform performance.

Now I’m a Ph. D. in Automation focused on “Non linear digital control applied in robotics”. I’ve built different autonomous platform for robotics suitable for exploration, “DUDE”, “Panther”.

trent’anni, ha appena finito il Dottorato di ricerca in robotica e lavora per la giapponese NTT Data su un progetto relativo alla guida autonoma. A Monaco è venuto per mostrare il progetto Panther, una piattaforma hardware e software che oggi si concretizza come un piccolo rover fatto in casa e strapieno di sensori

Raffaello Bonghi studies systems automation and design and mobile platform implementation at Sapienza University of Rome and Universite Paris-Sud. But his passion for robots stems from his teens. ... Studying Greek and Latin by day and electronics at night, Bonghi was soon building robots and entering competitions. [2015]

Hardware Upgrade

Raffaello Bonghi e Walter Lucetti ci hanno mostrato sullo showfloor del GTC la loro nuova tecnologia che ricostruisce una mappa grazie al sensore Xtion di cui è dotato e usa le informazioni così acquisite per evitare ostacoli o aiutare altre persone nella navigazione di ambienti sconosciuti.
