The SUNRISE Project has been featured on Superquark! Find out more and watch the video (in Italian): SUNRISE featured on Superquark.
SUNRISE short video starts at 1 hour and 27 minutes.
The GENESI project coordinated by Professor Chiara Petrioli has been featured on the Digital Agenda for Europe as " a success story to be followed!". GENESI target is to fill the gap for long lasting or perpetual sensing systems, by designing and implementing a novel generation of “green wireless sensor networks” which can be embedded in buildings and infrastructures at the time of construction and be able to provide a monitoring and control intelligence over the whole structure lifetime.
Within the SAFE-ART project, our lab is collaborating with the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and with WSENSE s.r.l. to apply sensing systems to protect cultural heritage when moved between museums for exhibitions. The SAFE-ART project has been recently featured on euronews futuris.
Underwater robots can explore seas and rivers, gathering in groups to solve problems together, if they learn to cooperate.
How can we teach robots? Engineers in the Portuguese town of Porto are working on SUNRISE, a European research project developing drone submarines, which talk to each other using sound signals.
GreenCastalia is an extension for the popular Castalia simulator that allows to easily model and simulate networks of embedded devices with energy-harvesting capabilities. GreenCastalia supports multi-source and multi-storage energy harvesting architectures, it is highly modular and easily customizable. Find out more or Download GreenCastalia + User Manual.

Computer scientist Roberto Petroccia from the University of Rome and WSENSE, points out what makes CLAM system that is enabled by WSENSE SUNSET communication stack different: “you don’t just do point to point communication between two devices – instead, all devices in the network cooperate to accomplish challenging tasks”. © 2013 Euronews/European Commission
Integration of Autonomous Underwater Vechicles (AUVs), Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASVs) and Senses lab underwater communication stack (SUNSET) have been successfully tested in cooperation with INESC/TEC group at the University of Porto.
The Senses Lab UWSN Group has released the first SUNSET Add-On package. It includes a routing protocol (Probabilistic Flooding); two MAC protocols (TDMA and Slotted CSMA) and the Evologics modem drivers (firmware version 1.4 and 1.6). The SUNSET Add-On package v1.0 contains additional modules for the SUNSET core, including scripts and examples to compile and use the additional modules.
Senses Lab first university spinoff company, WSENSE, will develop cyber physical systems technology (from HW to communication protocols, to applications and services) for terrestrial and underwater monitoring systems. Developed solutions address structural health monitoring, CO2 monitoring underwater, underwater monitoring systems.
In April 2012, experiments on different routing protocols have been performed, in collaboration with the NATO Centre for Maritime Research & Experimentation (CMRE), formerly NURC.
The structural health monitoring system developed within the FP7 GENESI project has been preliminarly tested during the excavation phase of the Rome undergound Metro B1 line (Conca D'Oro - Piazzale Jonio).
