Badr-eddine Miles, maitre-assistant at the Université des Frère Mentouri, Constantine, Algerie, and Researcher at the Laboratoire de Modélisation et d’Implémentation des Systèmes Complexes (MISC), visits IoT Lab to collaborate on Internet of Things research topics.22
IoT Lab hosts the 4th meeting of the NATO Research Task Group HFM–260 “Enhancing Warfighter Effectiveness with Wearable Bio Sensors and Physiologicol Models.” Attendees from USA, Canada, UK, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland, Singapore, and Italy come together to share current research results and exchange ideas.
IoT Lab receives a grant from the Cooperative Planning Programme Fund of NATO (Science and Technology Organization – Collaboration Support Office) to carry out advanced navigation research activities in the context of the NATO RTG HFM 260 “Enhancing Warfighter Effectiveness with Wearable Bio Sensors and Physiological Models.”
Prof. Ferrari gives the invited talk “Internet of Things: Ideas and Applications to Factory 4.0” at the Think&Talk meeting on Industry 4.0 organized by Marchesini Group in their headquarters in Carpi (Modena), Italy. The Think&Talk meetings are a series of three meetings (Industry 4.0; Serialization, Track&Trace and Traceability; Regulatory aspects and currents regulations) to talk about pharmaceutical industry innovation, exchange ideas and perspectives about the future of manufacture inside the Open House.
The Wireless Ad-hoc and Sensor Networks (WASN) Lab has been renamed as Internet of Things (IoT) Lab, as most of the research activities revolve around the design and implementation of smart systems and cyber physical systems, i.e., the IoT ecosystem.
Nicolò Strozzi, PhD student at the WASN Lab, classifies third in the Track 2 “Pedestrian Dead Reckoning Positioning” competition at Seventh International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation (IPIN 2016), Alcalá de Henares, Madrid, Spain. The used navigation system is described in the paper N. Strozzi, F. Parisi, and G. Ferrari, “A multifloor hybrid inertial/barometric navigation system,” published in the proceedings of IPIN 2016.
The WASN Lab is granted, as a donation by Texas Instruments, 10 Internet of Things (IoT) nodes with various communication capabilities. They will be integrated in the WASNLab IoT testbed.
Federico Parisi, PhD student at the WASN Lab, will visit the Motion Analysis Lab of Harvard University (Boston, MA, USA), led by Prof. Paolo Bonato, for a few months to collaborate on inertial signal processing for biomedical applications. Prof. Ferrari visited the Motion Analysis Lab in August 2016, giving the speech “Signal Processing for Biomedical Applications, with an Outlook to IoT”.
