Research projects. I have been involved in several EU, UK and Italian research projects. Some of them have been successfully completed others are still running. I list them in the following.
Homeland security This is on ongoing project in cooperation with University of L'Aquila and Thales. This project (Nationally funded by MIUR, L297, art. 10) focuses on how the technologies of heterogeneous and cooperative wireless networks can provide a significant contribution in monitoring and control of land and/or sensitive perimeters.
Shell projecy This is on ongoing project in cooperation with e-elios and various companies. This project (Nationally funded by Region Marche) focuses on new technologies for building home automation solutions for elderly.
UBIVAL project This project included several uk partners such as Oxford, Imperial College, UCL, University of Birmingham, British Telecom and HP Labs. This is an EPRC project funded by the UK government. The Ubival project aims to define and implement a suite of sound, systematic methods that software engineers can use to create correctly functioning, efficient and secure mobile and ubiquitous applications. My task was to implement novel middleware for programming body sensor networks.
CUSPIS FP6 project This project included several partners such as University of L'Aquila, Vodafone Greece, University of Sapienza Rome, Ministry of Cultural Heritage Italy, Ministry of Cultural Heritage Greece/a> and Next S.p.A.. The CUSPIS project deployed operative solutions for the transportation and fruition of secure assets in open archaeological areas using EGNOS and Galileo. CUSPIS is unique within the cultural heritage user community in merging GNSS aspects, authentication capabilities and “infomobility” services in a single solution. In the context of the CUSPIS project I created novel security protocols in order to authenticate works of art.
PASS project This project is a project funded by the Marche region. The project aims to promote active longevity of the elderly in their own home, a place where he can continue to carry out usual activities, with the benefit of innovative services based on technological features user-friendly. Pass, launched in February 2013, has a term of 24 months and intends to contribute to the spread of a new culture of the concept of smart home by placing the user at the center of the house of technological solutions developed.
Choreos EU FP7 project CHOReOS will implement a framework for scalable choreography development. The goal is to enable domain experts to develop decentralized ultra-large scale (ULS) solutions composed of heterogeneous services that are adaptable and QoS (Quality-of-Service) aware. Prior to this, these solutions were only possible with the support of dedicated IT professionals to provide the skills needed for architectural design and software engineering. CHOReOS will deliver formally grounded abstractions and models, dynamic choreography-centric development processes, governance and service-oriented middleware manipulated via an Integrated Development Runtime Environment (IDRE) aimed at overcoming the ULS impact on software system development.
