As a part of Loccioni Research for Innovation team whose main aim is to perform research upon
monitoring, inspection and testing systems for the quality control of product and processes, the core
competencies are as follows:
Advanced Sensing: machine vision for real-time 3D inspection, vibration and noise for non-
destructive evaluation and testing, distributed sensor networks for structural health monitoring and
civil applications, gas analysis for micro-environmental monitoring and healthcare applications.
Robotics: service robot platforms with autonomous safe navigation, localization and dynamic
environmental perception algorithms, strategies for manipulation and human-robot cooperation.
Advanced Classification: feature extraction techniques, multivariate analysis, data mining
techniques, multi agent systems for integration of processes and quality controls, predictive analysis
and ambience intelligence.
Energy Efficiency: energy saving model based algorithms, web-based energy management and control
systems, tools for the design of energy saving buildings and processes.
