Progetti di ricerca

High Tech-House Garden

La coltivazione in serra del futuro: l’high tech al servizio dell’ortoflorovivaismo toscano

Progetto finanziato dal POR FESR Toscana 2014-2020


Il progetto intende rispondere all’esigenza di incrementare il livello tecnologico attraverso la realizzazione di una serra serra high-tech integrata di tecnologie sensoristiche e domotiche, controllate tramite un approccio ICT (information and communication technology), per lo sviluppo agronomico controllato di colture orticole e florovivaistiche, supportate da tecnologie innovative per stimolare la crescita e lo sviluppo di piante aumentando l’efficienza di uso degli agrochimici senza ulteriore utilizzo di prodotti di sintesi.

Refactoring Parallel Heterogeneous Resource-Aware Applications - a Software Engineering Approach

The focus of the RePhrase project is on producing new software engineering tools, techniques and methodologies for developing data-intensive applications in C++, targeting heterogeneous multicore/manycore systems that combine CPUs and GPUs into a coherent parallel platform. 

RePhrase is a H2020 project, started on April, 1st, 2015 (http://rephrase.weebly.com/)

Reengineering and Enabling Performance and poweR of Applications




The REPARA project aims to help the transformation and deployment of new and legacy applications in parallel heterogeneous computing architectures while maintaining a balance between application performance, energy efficiency and source code maintainability.


Using Local Inference in Massively Distributed SystemLIFT logo



As the scale of today’s networked techno-social systems continues to increase, the analysis of their global phenomena becomes increasingly difficult, due to the continuous production of streams of data scattered among distributed, possibly resource-constrained nodes, and requiring reliable resolution in (near) real-time.

Robotics UBIquitous COgnitive NetworkRUBICON logo

EU FP7 Project


The goal of Project Rubicon is to create a self-learning robotic ecology.

This project will create a self-learning robotic ecology, called RUBICON (for Robotic UBIquitous COgnitive Network), consisting of a network of sensors, effectors and mobile robot devices. Enabling robots to seamlessly operate as part of these ecologies is an important challenge for robotics R&D, in order to support applications such as ambient assisted living, security, etc.

ASCENSAutonomic service-component ensembles


The goal of the ASCENS project is to build ensembles in a way that combines the maturity and wide applicability of traditional software engineering approaches with the assurance about functional and non-functional properties provided by formal methods and the flexibility, low management overhead, and optimal utilization of resources promised by autonomic, adaptive, self-aware systems.

Seamless adaptive multi-cloud management of service-based applicationsSeaClouds


Enable seemless adaptive multi-cloud management of complex applications, by supporting distribution, monitoring and migration of application modules over multiple heterogeneous (PaaS) clouds.

Parallel Patterns for Adaptive Heterogeneous Multicore SystemsParaphrase logo



The ParaPhrase project aims to produce a new structured design and implementation process for heterogeneous parallel architectures, where developers exploit a variety of parallel patterns to develop component based applications that can be mapped to the available hardware resources, and which may then be dynamically re-mapped to meet application needs and hardware availability.
