Embedded multi-core systems for mixed criticality applications in dynamic and changeable real-time environments.
The aim of “Casa+” project is to help people with Down syndrome to get their own autonomy by increasing the awareness of their means and always keeping the safety.
The focus of the project spans the different domains of real-time applications for heterogeneous, networked, embedded many-core systems. CRAFTERS proposes a computing environment for many-core systems that will enable the evolution to horizontal domains by providing common methods, tools and reference platforms for embedded many-core applications.
The main objective of the INCIPICT Project is the construction of an experimental optical network to build a MAN – Metropolitan Area Network – that consists in an Optical Ring to connect the main and the most important sites of L’Aquila City. INCIPICT represents the context for testing advanced and pervasive wireless technologies, necessary to prepare the support layer for innovative applications and provides research on techniques solutions for reduction of energy consumption and increase of transmission speed (and bandwidth). INCIPICT also aim at developing a specific middleware that allows abstracting the components of the heterogeneous network and offering uniform access methods as independent as possible from the specific underlying technology.
GRETA is an Italian scientific research project, funded by the Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (PRIN 2010/11), which aims at studying a distributed system for tag identification, localization, tracking and monitoring in indoor scenarios.
Homeland security project (with Thales Communications, Nationally funded by MIUR, L297, art. 10) focuses on how the technologies of heterogeneous and cooperative wireless networks can provide a significant contribution in monitoring and control of land and/or sensitive perimeters. As an example the port areas are analyzed, recognizing that this peculiar scenario presents most of the challenging application domains of homeland security
Precision agriculture project (Consorzio di Ricerca per l’Innovazione Tecnologica, la Qualità e la Sicurezza degli Alimenti, Nationally funded by MIUR) allows a detailed monitoring of environmental parameters which are critical for a particular cultivation enabling the optimization of production and the improvement of quality. At the same time through this monitoring it is possible to detect precisely pathologies or criticalities. As a result, an effective irrigation and a proper and selective dispensing of chemical treatments is possible, so lowering the presence of chemicals in foods while reducing costs
RF Sounding is an interactive installation inspired by the metaphor of the impossible human dream to overcome his limits.
IRMA project (with Thales Communications, Nationally funded by MIUR, L297) in the constant effort of improving capacity of wireless systems, ultra-wide band has been representing an interesting technique for providing large channel capacities, while allowing intrinsic support for flexible uncoordinated operations and robustness to channel impairments and interference

MAREA project (WP-E SESAR, Eurocontrol “Mathematical approach towards resilience engineering in ATM”) where the results achieved in the iFly Project provide the formal methodology to address the new SESAR 2020 concepts of operation, at present under study by the air traffic management systems’ experts at EUROCONTROL
HYCON2 Network of Excellence (Highly-complex and networked control systems, [FP7/2007-2013] under grant agreement n°257462). The FP7 NoE HYCON2, started in September 2010, is a four-year project. It aims at stimulating and establishing a long-term integration in the strategic field of control of complex, large-scale, and networked dynamical systems. It focuses in particular on the domains of ground and aerospace transportation, electrical power networks, process industries, and biological and medical systems
iFly project (STREP Project TREN/07/FP6AE/S07.71574/ 037180 “Safety, Complexity and Responsibility based design and validation of highly automated Air Traffic Management”) where the HYBRIDGE results on analysis and control of hybrid systems provide the basis for the study of advanced mathematical techniques for the development of autonomous flight.
HYCON (Contract no.: 511368) The objective of the NoE HYCON is establishing a durable community of leading researchers and practitioners who develop and apply the hybrid systems approach to the design of networked embedded control systems as found, e.g., in industrial production, transportation systems, generation and distribution of energy, communication systems.
Hybrid systems provide a scientific paradigm to systematically address the analysis, modelling, simulation, synthesis, and optimisation of digital
controllers for physical plants that communicate directly or via networks with other computerized systems and with human users and supervisors.
