Welcome to my website!
I'm Alberto Pretto, tenure track assistant professor at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padua. My research topics are robotic vision and autonomous mobile robots perception and navigation. In the research section you can find a brief (not exhaustive) overview about my research activities, a list of my papers is available in the publications section.


I am also charter member of IT+Robotics Srl, a spin-off company of the University of Padova working in the field of machine vision and industrial robotics, and FlexSight Srl, a start-up company working in the field of computer vision and artificial intelligence on embedded devices.


Till September 2018, I was a fixed-term assistant professor at the Department of Computer, Control, and Management Engineering at Sapienza University of Rome.
