Our longtime colleague at FCC, Domenico Spensieri, on Wednesday 29 March 2017 presented and defended his thesis “Planning of Robotic Assembly Sequences”. The major contribution of his work is a new approach to schedule robot operations to avoid collisions and minimize cycle time for multirobot stations. This approach includes tools and algorithms to consider geometric feasibility and geometrical variations. Domenico had a long list of publications for this thesis as was noted from his opponent from the vehicle industry, who saw immediate industrial use of the work Domenico presented.

We congratulate Domenico and look forward to keep working with him on his journey to a Doctoral Degree!
