SENSES (SEnsors NetworkS and Embedded Systems Laboratory) is a laboratory of the Computer Science Department at Rome University La Sapienza, directed by Prof. Chiara Petrioli.
Current research activities include the design, implementation and evaluation of protocol stacks for wireless sensor and actor networks; the design of solutions enabling efficient communications in mobile sensor networks; the development of tools for reprogramming and managing large scale sensor networks; the design and real-life evaluation of protocol stacks for underwater sensor networks; the design and implementation of RFID systems; the design and evaluation of E-health and assisted living systems; the design of solutions exploiting advanced phy layer paradigms such as cognitive networking; the design of solutions for green, battery-less mobile networking (based on energy harvesting); the design and evaluation of security solutions for energy-harvesting wireless sensor networks; the design of WSN based solutions for structural health monitoring and archeological site/historical buildings monitoring.
The lab is one of the core components of the new Center for Cyber Intelligence and Information Security and of Sapienza Innovazione ICT technology for security inter-department lab. Sapienza Innovazione is 'La Sapienza' technology incubator, funded by the italian ministry of industry.
What we can easily see is only a small percentage of what is possible. Imagination is having the vision to see what is just below the surface; to picture that which is essential, but invisible to the eye. Then to be or not to be is not the question; but to envision the future and set sail for your horizon.
