People - Giuseppe Pettiti

Giuseppe Pettiti graduated in 1986 from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Politecnico of Torino, Italy. Since 1987, he is a researcher at the Institute of Electronics, Information Technology and Telecommunications (IEIIT) at the National Council of Research (CNR) in Torino, Italy. Until 1989 he worked on the Redundancy Reduction and Coding of the Digital Video Signal. He has studied methods for qualifying CCD cameras aimed to metrological application. He has collaborated to the project and the realization of a telemeter based on CCD cameras for the robot qualification, in the framework of the Progetto Finalizzato Robotica. In the framework of Progetto Finalizzato Trasporti 2 (Eureka PROMETHEUS) contributed to the design and realization of a Mobile Laboratory mobile (Mob-Lab)for development and test of automatic car driving systems. In 1997 he collaborated on the project and setting up of a test laboratory for the evaluation of systems for automatic recognition of number plates and to the definition of the objective method for evaluation of such systems. (standard UNI 10772) Until 2001 he was responsible for the certification of systems for recognition of license plates in accordance with the standard cited above. Since 1998 the main activity of research has been devoted to the study of techniques and methods for artificial vision both active and passive implemented on a new prototype of the system 3EYES. The topics addressed by the research are not- contact metrology (dimensional and colorimetric measures, tracking and scene reconstruction of 3D surfaces) with applications to robotics and cultural heritage. He was Scientific Responsible for former IRITI Unit (now IEIIT) in the Coordinated Project Agency 2000 entitled "Design and production hardware and software of a portable system for the acquisition of three-dimensional structure and texture of the sculptures." Since 2004 activity has been aimedto design of systems for acquisition and reconstruction of 3D scenes using active methods.
