Aaron Martinez is a computer engineer, entrepreneur, and expert in digital fabrication. He did his Master's thesis in 2010 at the IUCTC (Instituto Universitario de Ciencias y Tecnologias Ciberneticas) in the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. He prepared his Master's thesis in the field of telepresence using immersive devices and robotic platforms. After completing his academic career, he attended an internship program at The Institute for Robotics in the Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria. During his internship program, he worked as part of a development team of a mobile platform using ROS and the navigation stack. After that, he was involved in some projects related to robotics, one of them is the AVORA project in the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. In this project, he worked on the creation of an AUV (Autonomous Underwater Vehicle) to participate in the Student Autonomous Underwater Challenge-Europe (SAUC-E) in Italy. In 2012, he was responsible for manufacturing this project; in 2013, he helped to adapt the navigation stack and other algorithms from ROS to the robotic platform.
Recently, Aaron created his own company called Biomecan. This company works with projects related to robotics, manufacturing of prototypes, and engineering tissue. The company manufactures devices for other companies and research and development institutes. For the past two years, he has been working on engineering tissue projects, creating a new device to help researchers of cell culture.
Aaron has experience in many fields such as programming, robotics, mechatronics, and digital fabrication, many devices such as Arduino, BeagleBone, Servers, and LIDAR, servomotors, and robotic platforms such as Wifibot, Nao Aldebaran, and Pioneer P3AT.
