Gennaro Notomista is a robotics PhD scholar within the Georgia Robotics and InTelligent Methods Laboratory at Georgia Tech. Gennaro research management frameworks, with the purpose of creating robots sturdy in opposition to a altering surroundings to allow them to deal with long-duration deployments. Towards this purpose, he explores constraints-driven management and approaches to protection management, or enabling robots to traverse closed environments. Along with the SlothBot, Gennaro has utilized his analysis to areas reminiscent of autonomous driving and swarm robotics.
