Short Bio:

Matteo Corno received the Master of Science degree in computer and electrical engineering from the University of Illinois, and the Ph.D. cum laude degree with a thesis on active stability control of two-wheeled vehicles from the Politecnico di Milano, Milano, Italy, in 2005 and 2009.

From 2009 to 2011, he was Assistant Professor at the Delft Center for Systems and Control. There, he worked in collaboration with SKF on load-based vehicle dynamics control.

From 2011 to 2015, he was an Assistant Professor with the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria, Politecnico di Milano, Italy.

He is now an Associate Professor with the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria, Politecnico di Milan and a senior member of MoVE, the DEIB research group for Motor Vehicle Electronic Control.

He held visiting research positions at University of Minnesota, Johannes Kepler University in Linz.

Starting from 2012, he, with several colleagues, found an industrial application for several of his research activities:

In 2012, he co-founded e-Novia e-Novia is an innovative technology provider for the design, development and production of electronic systems for different application fields. Your ideas are our business; starting from a sketch, we want to help you to get a final product with high innovative characteristics both on the software and on the hardware point of view. Moreover, thanks to the direct connection to the university lab, we can help you also on the R&D phase of the projec.

In 2013, he co-founded ZeHuS a Politecnico di Milano spin-off company working in the field of electric assisted bicycles.

In 2015, together with other partners, he founded blubrake a Politecnico di Milano spin-off company that designs and produces Anti-lock braking systems for bicycles.

In 2018, together with other partners, he founded Yape a Politecnico di Milano spin-off company that designs and produces autonomous drones for last-mile deliveries.

He is author of more than 140 scientific publications and 15 patents. During his career, he won several prizes among which:

- the IFAC Congress Interactive Paper Prize at the 19th IFAC World Congress in Cape Town for the Paper M. Corno, P. Spagnol, S. M. Savaresi (2014). Road Slope Estimation in Bicycles without Torque Measurements.

- The award for the best paper published in Control Engineering Practice for the period 2008-2010 for the paper M. Corno, S. M. Savaresi, M. Tanelli, L. Fabbri. (2008) On Optimal Motorcycle Braking. Control Engineering Practice. Vol. 16, No. 6, pp. 644-657.

- The Guglielmo Marconi Prize for Industrial Innovation by the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, the world oldest scientific academy.

He has been the Principal Investigator in two Honda Initiation Grants and the MIUR SIR project: Online Accurate Battery State Estimation via Electrochemical Modelling, in addition to several industrial projects with lead automotive companies: FCA, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Thales Alenia Space, Harley Davidson, HB performance systems US

Main Research Interests:

His current research interests include dynamics and control of vehicles with particular interest in human-powered electric hybrid vehicles, Lithium-ion battery modeling, estimation and control.
