FIAMME: Finishing processes for additive manufactured metal components

The FIAMME project consisted in developing a surface finishing process that could be effective on additively manufactured (AM) components with complex geometries. AM parts can reach average roughness (Ra) values up to 100 µm, which strongly affects the possible application of the component. The team focused on the surface finishing of internal mini-channels of an …

MINT: Memristive Neuromorphics for Smart Internet of Things

This project focus on the evaluation of the memristive technology applied to a specific pattern recognition problem. In particular, we selected as pattern recognition problem the arrhythmia detection and we compared the memristive technology performance with the currently used one based on classical technology. The memristor is a newly discovered electronic component that can be …

WaLi: Water for Life

Water resources are the core of any sustainable development, but they have been highly affected by unsustainable development and lack of appropriate government policies, and that brought the constantly increasing demand for fresh water. If the balance between demand and availability of a limited resource will not be restored, the world will have to cope …

S[m]ART: Yummy it, reduce food wastage

The ASP group developed their activity working in parallel with the S [m2] art research project, winner of the MIUR Smart Cities and Social Innovation tender (SCN_00325). In particular, starting from the same concept of S [m2] art, they had the task of designing some alternative proposals, even more innovative. The member group belongs to …

BRIDGE: Bridging the gap between Industry and Academia

Seeing the need to have more communication skill training done in the academic sector, gave birth to this project being recommended by IBM and further harnessed by the Alta Scuola Politecnica advisors. To explore the transition for this work, a multi-criteria analysis is performed. The first step is the Stakeholder analysis, necessary to deeply investigate …

MACLoC: Multi-­Axis Climbing Load Cells for performance analysis in sport climbing

Climbing is a complex task, involving strength, balance and coordination. The performance of a climber is experience based and more insights in the mechanics of climbing could be gained by measuring the contact forces of the climber, for the centre of mass calculation in real time. A multiaxial load cell was developed to measure the …
