Multi-touch Table

Multi-touch displays are the natural evolution of the old touch screens as they are capable of recognising multiple touches at the same time. This way of dealing with the hardware (and applications) opens up a host of new opportunities for human-computer interaction, enabling the objects on a screen to be directly manipulated by the user.

Quartarete@Internet: an application for Samsung Connected TV

Connected TV (or Smart TV) by Samsung represents a new way to approach the television platform, in which the fruition of classic television programs is combined with the ability to surf the Internet and use applications with varied capabilities, while supporting the platform television, with which users have full familiarity.

Applications are […]

The EveryAware SensorBox: a tool for community-based air quality monitoring

Paper Abstract:

In the EU-FP7-funded EveryAware project a SensorBox is built that will be used in community-based air quality monitoring in Belgium, Italy and the UK. It is conceived as a portable multisensor array or “e-nose” using commercially available electrochemical and metal oxide gas sensors that have shown to react to traffic-related pollution. Further tests […]

Community-based urban air quality monitoring with the EveryAware SensorBox

Paper Abstract:

Community-based monitoring (CBM) encompasses different levels of citizens’ participation going from opportunistic sensing to crowd sourcing, participatory data collection and “citizen science”. In the urban environment with its complex physical and social interactions CBM can help in collecting data at a spatial and temporal scale that corresponds best to inhabitants personal environment and […]

A real-time video broadcasting system based on the GNU Radio-USRP2 platform

A video broadcasting system conforming to the DVB-T digital TV broadcasting standard has been developed using the GNU Radio framework. The system achieves real-time operation and supports most of the communication modes defined in the standard. Using a USRP2 board with a suitable radio front-end, interoperability with commercial receivers has been proved.

The paper has […]

Identification of packet exchange patterns based on energy detection: the Bluetooth case

A time-domain recognition of different wireless technologies may be obtained using energy detection. In this work, an energy detector was implemented using the Universal Software Radio Peripheral SDR platform. The energy detector output allows the formation of a packet presence/absence diagram. Experimental results indicate that the observation of Bluetooth packet exchange patterns reveals technology-specific MAC […]

ViniVeri

ViniVeri project is aimed to monitor vineyards for plant protection.

Currently the project enters the third year, and provides the phase of field testing.

The sensor network is currently running, and in 2011 changes were made to improve the energy efficiency of sensing nodes.
