Marina Indri received the “Laurea” degree “cum laude” in Electronic Engineering in 1991 and the Ph.D. in Information and Systems Engineering in 1995, both from Politecnico di Torino, Italy. She became Assistant Professor in 1995, and Associate Professor in 2001 at the Department of Computer Engineering of Politecnico di Torino.
She coauthored more than 80 papers in international journals, books and conference proceedings, in the fields of robotics and automatic control. Her current research interests are in the industrial and mobile robotics areas, including HW/SW architectures for programming and monitoring of robotic cells; motion planning, inverse kinematics and collision avoidance techniques for industrial manipulators; rapid prototyping of robot controllers, dynamic calibration and identification of robot models for control; friction modelling, identification and compensation in robotic manipulators; development and implementation of localization, mapping and exploration algorithms for mobile robots. Present teaching activities include Robotics and Automatic Control courses.
She participated in various research projects, and was involved also in research joint activities of her Department with industrial partners. She is currently responsible for research activities with Comau S.p.A. about motion planning, friction compensation, inverse kinematics and collision avoidance techniques for industrial manipulators in the joint Comau-Politecnico di Torino research lab "RoboLAB" at Comau Robotics.
In 2013 she received the best paper award in Factory Automation at ETFA, and in 2014 the 2nd prize of the euRobotics Technology Transfer Award for a joint work with Comau Robotics.
She served as ETFA co-chair of Track 7 "Intelligent Robots & Systems" in 2013 and 2014.
She is an Associate Editor of the Conference Editorial Board of the IEEE Control System Society, collaborating to the reviewing process for the IEEE Conference on Decision and Control (CDC) and the American Control Conference (ACC) since 2001.
