Project Description

Area Description

The team is involved in research and development of innovative solutions which meet the different needs of security, monitoring and control and applicable to Aerospace, Naval, Automotive and Defense sectors. The systems are designed to provide, through a monitoring and remote control of all security subsystems, support operators predisposed to the management of operational situations and/or emergency that may endanger the safety of property and/or people in various fields. Some application examples: systems for checking the damage on board ship, management of complex public or private buildings, safety and supervision of production facilities , aquaculture facilities , bridges , viaducts , geographical protected areas…. Such knowledge-intensive systems for decision support provide guidance on best practices for the resolution of problems of various kinds or running reconfiguration control.

The work is done in close collaboration with the spinoff Apphia s.r.l..

  • Database: SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Microsoft Access;
  • UML e modellazione basi di dati relazionali.
The team provided support for the design and development of:

  • an onboard ship system for monitoring and control the damages and for decision support act to the collection, processing and representation of data coming from over 4000 sensors;
  • an onboard ship system for decision support act to the management of different operational situations. The system integrates information about the compartments and their contents, the state of the sensors and the control on actuators, the management and implementation of operational procedures by the crew;
  • an onboard ship system for the calculation of the stability, on the basis of the loads, of the data coming from the tank level sensors and of possible damages, both real-time and simulation;
  • a prototype device, to be installed on board vessels, discharge to collecting data from available equipment and their distribution via Wi-Fi jointly with the marine forecast from providers remote. This information is conveyed to Android devices and to a generic tablet customized for the marine environment.
