Efficienza energetica ed informatica con il progetto RenewIT

“A very remarkable and professional job”, questo è il commento dei revisori una volta visionato il lavoro fatto per il progetto Europeo RenewIT (iniziato nel 2013 e che si concluderà quest’anno). Pochi giorni fa si è svolto nella sede del Gruppo Loccioni il secondo Review Meeting del progetto durante il quale sono stati presentati gli avanzamenti compiuti in questi mesi: a versione alfa del RenewIT tool e il Monitoring Tool.

Un finale di successo per il progetto DOGGIES

La sicurezza delle frontiere è una delle sfide principali che l’Europa di oggi si trova a dover affrontare. L’individuazione tempestiva di persone nascoste e sostanze illegali è alla base del contrasto ai fenomeni del terrorismo, del traffico d’esseri umani e del contrabbando.
Nasce da questi presupposti il bando Sicurezza che la Comunità Europea lancia per la prima volta tra 2012 e 2013 sul tema “artificial sniffers”. Il nostro Gruppo raccoglie la sfida e assieme ad altri centri di eccellenza europea nasce il progetto DOGGIES .

SAVE 2015- Convegno Soluzioni e Applicazioni Verticali di Automazione, Strumentazione, Sensori

In the context of the exhibition and conference SAVE, ANIPLA hold a conference aimed to fix the state of art of emerging technologies for the construction of a smart building. That is, a building in which the management of consumption of utilities (subsystems) (power, cooling, lighting, water) is integrated with the optimal management of technological systems in the building (heating, systems of energy production from renewable sources, ventilation, electrical and lighting systems, data transmission network, anti-intrusion, …) using ICT intensively.
Given that the management and use of buildings accounts for 40% of the energy consumed in the world, are obvious potential improvements in terms of electricity consumption and CO2 emissions.
During the conference, we will be discussed / illustrated case studies that will address issues related to the development of systems for the integrated management of the different systems and technology services, to ensure the desired level of comfort.
In this context it will be presented the works done within the European Projects Green@Hospital and RenewIT.

Green@Hospital is an European project that aims at integrating the latest ICT solutions in order to obtain a significant energy saving in existing hospital buildings, through a better management of energy resources and losses reduction. This will be carried out by the realization of Web-based Energy Management and Control Systems – Web-EMCS – which integrates monitors and controls multiple buildings systems at the component level. The topics that will be discussed concern in fact, the measurement technologies and optimizing energy efficiency in four European hospitals – including the Hospital Azienda Ospedaliera Ospedali Riuniti of Ancona.
From the results obtained from Green@Hospital, the RenewIT project, is instead focuses on data centre and Agorà, the data dentre of Ancona hospital, is a case study. In fact, in this project the consortium is developing a dynamic tool to evaluate the cost – effectiveness of energy efficiency measures and renewable energy production  during the design or the revamping of data centre with the aim of achieving Net Zero Energy Data Centre.

Loccioni al NI Forum Aerospazio e Difesa

La Ricerca e Innovazione ha preso parte al Forum Aerospazio e Difesa organizzato da National Instruments a Parigi. Il Forum annuale ha lo scopo di mettere in contatto i partner NI e le loro soluzioni con la filiera dell’Aerospazio e creare occasioni di confronto su importanti temi di questo settore in rapida evoluzione e in constante fermento. Abbiamo presentato i primi casi di successo maturati nell’ultimo anno e mezzo nel settore aeronautico e tenuto un intervento su “cyber-physical systems” e “fabbrica del futuro” che ha destato molto interesse tra gli stakeholders presenti.

12°Workshop on Intelligent Solutions in Embedded Systems

Embedded systems have an increasing importance in our everyday lives. The growing complexity of embedded systems and the emerging trend to interconnections between them lead to new challenges. Intelligent solutions are necessary to overcome these challenges and to provide reliable and secure systems to the customer under a strict time and financial budget.

WISES 2015 is a platform for presentation of innovative approaches that provide intelligent solutions in embedded systems. The objective of this workshop is to present mature approaches and to provide a forum for the exchange and discussion of ideas, and thus, the sharing of experiences among researchers, practitioners, and application developers both from industry and academia. Original papers addressing both theoretical and practical aspects of embedded systems are solicited. Papers describing prototype implementations and deployments of embedded systems are particularly welcome. In order to provide young researchers a forum to exchange their ideas WISES 2015 will include a special session for PhD-Students.

In this context Loccioni is invited for a talk related to “Embedded Systems in the Factory of the Future: an application case” and presented by Cristina Cristalli and during the regular session will be presented the paper “BeeHive Lab Project – Sensorized Hive for Bee Colonies Life Study” of Marco Giammarini, Enrico Concettoni, Cynthia Corina Zazzarini, Nicola Orlandini, Mariano Albanesi and Cristina Cristalli.

Bivee Book is finally OUT!

At the end of the European Project BIVEE – Innovation in Virtual Enterprise Environments evaluated with the excellent awards by European Commission, the members of the consortium and the editors Massimo Canducci (BIVEE Project Coordinator), Neil Maiden (Coordinator of the Creativity Lab, City University of London) and Michele Missikoff (BIVEE Project Scientific Advisor) have the pleasure to announce that the Book “Innovating Enterprise Innovation. New Methods and Tool to support and enhance the innovation in virtual enterprises” is now published.
