SMART_UzER – Sistema ModulARe e proaTtivo per l’ottimizzazione dell’UtiliZzo dell’Energia elettrica in Reti intelligenti

POR Sardegna FESR 2014/2020 – ASSE PRIORITARIO I “RICERCA SCIENTIFICA, SVILUPPO TECNOLOGICO E INNOVAZIONE”, Regione Sardegna – Duration 2018-2020 – Role: Partner – Project Value: 182078,73 €

Il progetto SMART_UzER, ha come finalità il superamento dei limiti di accettazione ed adozione delle misure di efficientamento energetico e di risposta dell’utente al mercato (Demand Response) attraverso lo sviluppo di uno strumento di supporto alla decisioni dell’utente (Decision Support), un innovativo sistema ICT Cloud-based che suggerisca scenari ottimi per la gestione, la misura e l’ottimizzazione dei consumi energetici tramite interfaccia con strumenti avanzati, quali ad esempio, le prese intelligenti “smart plug”.


FITOPTIVIS – From the cloud to the edge: smart IntegraTion and OPtimization Technologies for highly efficient Image and VIdeo processing Systems

H2020-ECSEL-2017 – Duration 2018-2021 – Role: Scientific Coordinator – Project Value: 25.215.007 € – https://fitoptivis.eu/

Images play a central role in human perception and understanding of our environment. In the same way, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs) need visual context and awareness to make autonomous and correct decisions, and eventually take appropriate actions. However, advanced image and video processing is compute intensive and challenging. The objective of FitOptiVis is to develop a cross-domain approach covering a reference architecture, supported by low-power, high-performance smart devices, and by methods and tools for combined design-time and run-time multi-objective optimisation within system and environment constraints.


ALOHA – software framework for runtime-Adaptive and secure deep Learning On Heterogeneous Architectures

H2020 ICT-05-2017 – ID: 780788 – Duration 2018-2021 – Role: Partner – Project Value: 5.976.415 € – https://www.aloha-h2020.eu/

Deep Learning (DL) algorithms are an extremely promising instrument in artificial intelligence. ALOHA aims at facilitating the implementation of DL on heterogeneous low-energy computing platforms by providing a software development tool flow, automating: algorithm design and analysis; porting of the inference tasks to heterogeneous embedded architectures, with optimized mapping and scheduling; implementation of middleware and primitives controlling the target platform, to optimize power and energy savings.


CERBERO – Cross-layer modEl-based fRamework for multi-oBjective dEsign of Reconfigurable systems in unceRtain hybRid envirOnments

H2020 ICT-01-2016 – ID: 732105 – Duration: 2017-2020 – Role: Scientific Coordinator – Project Value: 5.383.597,50 € – http://www.cerbero-h2020.eu

CERBERO aims at developing a design environment for CPS based on a cross-layer model based approach to describe, optimize, and analyze the system and all its different views concurrently, and on an advanced adaptivity support based on a multi-layer autonomous engine.


PROSSIMO – Progettazione, sviluppo e ottimizzazione di sistemi intelligenti multi-oggetto

POR Sardegna FESR 2014/2020 – ASSE PRIORITARIO I “RICERCA SCIENTIFICA, SVILUPPO TECNOLOGICO E INNOVAZIONE”, Regione Sardegna – Duration: 2018-2020 – Role: Coordinator – Project Value: 284.396 € – http://www.cluster-prossimo.it/

The main objective of this project is to transfer advanced techniques and tools regarding design and implementation of CPS. This will be done through the experimentation of innovative methodologies and tools for designing and verifying such systems at various stages of the lifecycle in order to reduce the time-to-market through rapid prototyping of “correct-by-construction” systems.
