Projects

  • 2017 - CLOTHO - Design of a protocol for neighborhood discovery and data collection in a dense network of autonomous connected objects.

  • 2016-2017 - BearFence - a system that uses low power radios to create a protective virtual fence around a given resource, which is able to detect the presence of tagged bears when they are in proximity of the fence, and to dissuade them using actuators.

  • 2015 - Collaboration with Algorab (an Italian ICT company from Trentino) for energy efficient monitoring and control of public lighting, using a large scale wireless infrastructure.

  • 2011-2014 - ANR IRIS: All IP Networks for the Future Internet of Smart Objects. The project focused on how smart objects can be interconnected and viewed as interoperable IP based end-hosts on the Internet, thus enabling the Internet of Things.
