  • IoTNet

    By in on

    CSP has developed skills and experience of all the components of the Internet of Things system: from the data source (sensors) to the storage , transmission (telecommunications and broadcasting techniques),   data validation ( based on statistics  and processing of heterogeneous data ), to  platforms for query and data visualization, to specific use of data in reference to particular user needs, to storage and management of large databanks (through distributed DB and NoSQL solutions).

    The IoTNet project aims to build a complete system, in which the data collection by distributed sensors (including webcam) is managed through acquisition platforms, autonomous and distributed, placed in strategic locations in the Piedmont area. Moreover, an access and streaming portal enables an  aggregated view of data and to access the webcam live streams.

  • LIMPID-Live Inducement of Multimodality by Promoting the Internet of Data

    By in on

    LIMPID aims to apply the IOT paradigm in the transport domain. In order to monitor traffic, and other parameters, it will use data derived from the public transport users and from infrastructure elements. The collected data will power a DSS enabled to monitor the state of traffic and provide decision support to the PA. An app will extract info from these data and provide forecasting and predictive values on traffic flows, use of public transport, availability of parking, useful both to users and to the PA. The collected data will merge on the regional platform Smartdatanet.

    The technological aspects will be tested in a Living Lab including vehicles, electric bikes and a UAV equipped with a videocamera.

  • Traffic counter

    By in on

    Traffic Counter is a software that provides an estimate of traffic flow and density on selected stretches of road, using automatic algorithms to process video images from normal webcams or cameras present in urban and rural areas. The system uses optical flow techniques capable of making a precise estimate of the number of vehicles and referencing these figures to the traffic flow model automatically generated.

  • Gate Management System

    By in on

    Gate Management System combines a web platform and an app for Android devices to manage vehicle access to controlled areas. It is currently designed to enable people with disabled parking permits to enter  Restricted Traffic Areas. Thanks to video analysis algorithms and license plate recognition technology this asset has many possible applications: managing private carparks, Restricted Traffic Area gateways, green areas in cities, loading and unloading areas, etc.

  • MASP

    By in on

    MASP acronym stands for “Experimental research and development of a system for monitoring sensitive and protected areas at long distance, aimed at supplying innovative services geared towards the cognitive and implementative monitoring of environmental policies”.
    This project tackles innovative issues such as the management and optimisation of WSN networks, workflow techniques and data analysis, particularly in environmental monitoring procedures and eco-sustainability assessments.
    The project has developed a distributed intelligence sensory/IT system, based on a cooperative network of fixed and mobile components (which can even be installed on public transport vehicles) that take measurements on site, designed to help acquire parameters that are critical for environmental monitoring online.
    The quantity of information generated by such a network will be validated, collected and channelled using a unique data acquisition and workflow management engine, whose parameters can be set according to predefinable procedural flows that can be adjusted and aligned according to the different environmental policies that will determine the measurement chain performed on site every time.
    As an additional aid, there are also plans to study and experimentally produce an environmental DSS (Decision Support System), also based on balance scorecard approaches in order to allow for innovative IT analysis and synthesis processes in the environmental sector, featuring ‘balanced’ multilevel and multi-dimensional evaluations of the data acquired.

    MASP is a project developed within the framework of the Annual Programme of Polo di Innovazione ICT.  It is funded under the ERDF Programme  2007/2013 of the Piedmont Region.

  • PICOD

    By in on

    PICOD is a project developed by CSP on behalf of the Regione Piemonte ICT Laboratory.

    PICOD is about the automatic recognition of disabled people cars:  in fact, the widespread use of video surveillance systems for the recognition of disabled people’s vehicles creates a problem when they access the Restricted Traffic Zones in town  different  from where they live.

    Automatic recognition of the parking permits  would allow the establishment of a national DB of parking permits , with significant reduction of administrative costs and red tape for citizens and entities responsible for control.
