Almost everyone watches television, nowadays. And we all have a mobile phone in our pockets! Could you imagine, then, an unsuccessful future for TV over a mobile phone? Before launching of the service, just few years ago, not even the most visionary individuals would have imagined such large problems in penetrating the market. But the […]
We could define the process of development of this ASP project “from EXPO to EX.POint(s)”. The starting point of the project is related to the fact that the nomination of Milan for the event of Expo 2015 is going to result in important innovations in the strategies and policies of the main players at different
Home Textile for Tomorrow is a project whose objective is the development of potential scenarios in terms of products, markets, features desired and technologies which are related to the home of tomorrow as well their validation through strategies and actions linked to textile industry needs; these products and technologies would be developed in cooperation with
UP4tin: Engineering and architecture for supporting sustainable development in Ecuador: the case study of Guayaquil’s barrios
The project was focused on the general benefits that a full engineering and architectural approach may provide when dealing with sustainable development and within the framework of critical social realities. In these environments, such as the suburbs of a big town in one of the Least Developed Countries (LCD), many complexities need to be faced.
In 2004, sales in non-industrial robots has surpassed sales in industrial robots, thus making evident the long-expected distribution of robots in the society. The successful market deployment of such devices often depends on the availability of low-cost, reliable, well-suited sensors and control devices, integrated with a market-effective robotic body. The aims of this project included
SmartCopter: Sensor-vision-enabled autonomous robotic helicopter for civil applications in urban environments
Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles (UAVs) are being developed by the aeronautical community at a fast pace and for a wide range of applications due to advances in sensor technology and automation. Missions which are best suited for UAV platforms are typically “dull, dirty and dangerous”. Among such missions, there are a number of operational scenarios which
This project combines two major topics. The first relates to the dramatic growth of the importance of nanotechnologies in science and engineering in the last few years; the second refers to the impact of human activities on the environment, which is becoming increasingly serious, and the stemming interventions which become necessary to reduce and control
ViChem investigates the mathematical side of chemistry to provide tools for discovery and analysis, in addition to integrating these within the new stream of e-science. In fact, the mission of this project is to find new opportunities for improving everyday life through scientific results. ViChem is sponsored by the Mario Negri Institute for Pharmacological Research.
Italia 150/Torino 2011 – testing the architectural, urban and territorial effects of a celebration event
The organization and planning of special events for ITALIA150 in 2011 represent an enormous opportunity for Torino and the whole country, particularly due to the great visibility of the town in the media.

EU rural areas cover over 80% of its surface; the per capita income in these areas is, however, up to 30% lower than the EU average. The rest of the community pays for the environmental, social and economical conservation of these rural areas. In the long term, according to WTO rules, the EU works towards
