G. Quaglia carries out study and research activities in the following fields: robotics, mechatronics, dynamics of vehicles and mechanical systems, industrial automation and fluid automation, applied mechanics, synthesis of mechanisms, mechatronic systems for disabled, appropriate technologies and human development (systems and devices for construction, agriculture and transport), energy saving and recovery systems.
The research has produced not only theoretical analyses, mathematical models and projects, but often led to the creation of innovative prototypes (wheelchairs, actuators and pneumatic systems, vehicle suspensions, kinematics and wrists for robots, mobile robots, steer by wire systems), some of them are described in national and international patents. He is the author of more than 140 publications (articles and patents) and is the reviewer/editorial board member in many international journals. He has also carried out and/or coordinated numerous research projects between Politecnico di Torino and private companies including COMAU, FIAT FERROVIARIA SpA, DAYCO, MERLO, CORCOS SpA , TEXA AT, RANCILIO, CF Rubber, SKF industrie S.p.A, TESEO, FREUDENBERG SEALING TECHNOLOGIES. He is member of the Academic Senate of the University “Politecnico di Torino”, member ASME, deputy chair of IFToMM Italy and deputy chair of the World IFToMM Technical Committee on Sustainable Energy System .
