Omar Morando

Technology is my passion but never my end. Develop to create, produce and improve in technological area where my skills can be exploited.

Mainly for mobile robotics such as aerial drones and ground rover with precision positioning indoor and outdoor, autonomous navigation and swarm of drones for industrial application and show.

What I Do

Coding

Deep knowledge in software development for mobile robots, embedded systems, IoT and real-time apps. ROS, simulation, swarm intelligence, indoor positioning, computer vision.

Research

Swarm of drones for industrial applications (e.g. Search & Rescue) or show, indoor positioning, deep learning applied to UAV are some samples of innovative technologies that I love to work with.

Design

I analyze the robotic systems needs and provide a plan for develop, integrate and solve. I give the utmost importance to the planning and development of the workflow.

Management

I consolidated my experience in highly competitive markets. Project management, leadership, result-orientation, excellent organization and communication skills, effective team-building.
