Two founders and a team of eight highly motivated and skilled people.
Maurizio Ferrari graduated in Bologna in 1990 with a dissertation on simulation software for a Formula 1 W12 engine. He has written code on a vast array of computers ranging from the Cray X-MP 48 to the early Microchip PIC. He joined Magneti Marelli in 1993 and later Ferrari F1 where he held an important technical position as F1 engines' firmware engineer, at the same time being also responsible for the deployment of software versioning system. He contributed two articles to Circuit Cellar Ink. Speaks fluent English, good Spanish and French and some German. He has more than 20 years of experience in dealing with Chinese suppliers.
Maurizio Gibertoni graduated cum laude in Bologna in 1986 with a dissertation on circuit simulation. He held positions in academic research institutes (in Trento and Bologna), presenting papers on digital circuits at important international conferences (ESSCIRC 1991). He later joined the private industrial sector where he held a position as chief designer for industrial sensors at a leading industry who later hired him as consultant. Within Galileo he deals mostly with hardware design and production of Galileo’s own products.
Clients & Brands
Over the years we’ve been working with leading companies such as:
Galileo is the company behind iconic model racing cars better known by the brand names Slot.it and Policar, as well as the Policar racing track system, and the 2.4 GHz wireless oXigen racing system. All these products have been designed by us. We have more than 20 years of experience working with Far East suppliers.
Some of our products
BLE PID Valve Controller
CVP-BT is an electronic, miniaturized proporzional PID controller with DIN 43650 – ISO 4400 connector, for open loop driving of proportional electric valves as commonly used in hydraulic circuits. It is controlled by a latest generation microprocessor and with 2.4GHz Bluetooth interface, through which all the control parameters can be remotely set and adjusted via an Android app.
oXigen is a wireless 2.4 GHz hardware and software system which provides real time distributed control under the supervision of a remote PC. It consists of a star network of highly configurable actuators, intelligent bridge units and sensors/actuators. The firmware of each unit can be updated with a dedicated app (also a web interface with pay-in capability) or a PC program.
The batteryless flow meter is a patented device in which a micro generator powers a small electronic board which monitors the flow of a liquid whose flow and temperature are read and sent to a central PC unit on a 2.4GHz oXigen net. The loss of flow stops the generator, thus triggering an alarm on the central PC. Ideal for injection presses for plastic material where coolant control is paramount.
