Presentation

Guiding companies towards the most promising areas of development, turning ideas into innovative projects, energising the network with opportunities for companies to meet with the hope of creating new partnerships and stimulating business, cooperating in synergy with Piedmont’s innovation clusters: these are just some of the commitments that we continue to support in running the ICT Innovation Cluster. In this, its third year of activity, it has once again proved itself to be a vital and productive organisation, capable of attracting the best elements to stimulate innovation in our region. With the 2012 Yearbook, our first intention is to provide a detailed description of the results the ICT Innovation Cluster has achieved in three years of work. In fact, we present all the research and development projects and all the technical feasibility studies that attracted grants, the result of cooperation between companies and research bodies that were capable of contributing skills and expertise, thanks also to the support provided by the Torino Wireless team. What’s new this year is the section on completed projects, where we highlight the results achieved and, more importantly, the positive consequences that the project teams noted in terms of research work development and capitalisation. Of course, the yearbook also contains profiles of all our affiliated companies – from large corporations to SMEs – who highlight their technological expertise, skills, key products and the markets they operate in. There are also details on participating universities and research centres with whom we have a consolidated relationship of cooperation and technological exchange, allowing us to access the best expertise in the field of Information & Communication Technology. The information contained in the Yearbook is not limited to the printed page. In fact, the same details are also available on our official website – www.poloinnovazioneict.org – and starting this year it can be accessed on the move with a mobile app developed for all iOS and Android devices. One of the ICT Cluster’s priorities is its position on the international scene and this is why this publication has been produced in Italian and English and will be distributed throughout the year to a target audience of sector companies, public authorities, regional development agencies and the national and international research organisations that the ICT Cluster comes into contact with during its daily partnership and promotional activities. I’d like to thank all our members for having contributed proactively to the production of this publication and I hope you enjoy reading it.

Introduction

Regione Piemonte’s innovation clusters Innovation clusters were set up in 2009 by Regione Piemonte, Piedmont’s governing body, as associations bringing together independent companies (small, medium and large) and research bodies that focus on specific sectors and are coordinated by a managing institution. In bringing together the different players in the innovation process, clusters aim to stimulate cooperative work, the common use of installations and the exchange of knowledge and expertise, and they are asked to contribute proactively to ensure that technologies are exchanged and that information is made available and publicised between companies. Clusters interpret the technological needs of companies so as to guide regional schemes supporting research and innovation. Innovation clusters are a regional measure for allocating special grants as part of POR-FESR 2007-2013: a longterm programme that funds research and innovation projects (process and product), feasibility studies and services.

Introduction

Results and expectations

Here at the ICT Innovation Cluster, we believe the members’ yearbook is a chance to take stock and review the work done up to now as well as draft guidelines for future strategies. The plan of activities for the last two-year period stemmed from the experience we gained during our first three years finalising the ICT Cluster’s programme, making the most of what had been learned from managing it and including the recommendations and advice received from our members. The final balance of these three years of work rewards the efforts made by each and every one of us in developing new projects and successfully integrating them with innovating services. To date, 60 research projects generating a value of € 25.2 million in the region have received funding through the ICT Innovation Cluster, and this places us among the top regional clusters in terms of the capacity to attract resources. One of the results that makes us particularly proud is the sweep of companies benefiting from funding this year, as ever: the percentage of companies awarded grants in the ICT Cluster’s various activities is 77%, for a total of 216 ICT partners involved in its various different projects. One of the aims that we have always considered to be strategic for establishing the position of our cluster in the Piedmont area is cooperation with other regional innovation clusters. The excellent results achieved in terms of joint projects and completed schemes encourage us even more to consolidate inter-cluster relations so as to offer new business opportunities to our members and encourage the adoption of ICT technology for the development of innovation in all industrial sectors. This is also why the ICT Innovation Cluster’s diary of events will continue to feature many opportunities to meet and share, ranging from technological seminars to B2B meetings verticalised among different sectors that prioritise the development of project, industrial and commercial partnerships. The consequences of this extensive cooperation are clear from the state of inter-cluster project development that, with the approval of the third annual plan, amounts to 22 projects funded jointly with most of the other innovation clusters. Alongside the progress being made in our region, there is another important goal that we continue to strive for: the strategic positioning of the ICT Innovation Cluster on a European level in order to offer new project funding opportunities for our members and to develop partnerships that go beyond regional borders. Thus all those activities designed to promote our work in Europe will continue through networking with foreign clusters. We will do this thanks to the many EU programmes passed on by Regione Piemonte, but also thanks to all those schemes designed to inform and involve companies in European programmes: on the one hand, helping them structure proposals and, on the other hand, organising seminars and providing them with the IT tools we have available to help them search for technological and commercial partners, thanks to the close working relationship we have with Turin’s Chamber of Commerce and the Piemonte Agency for Investments, Export and Tourism. First and foremost, special thanks go to our members for their daily cooperation and their participation in our activities. Then I’d like to thank our cluster’s team for their commitment and dedication in working together, work which we will continue to support with vigour and enthusiasm and that we are certain will continue to be worthwhile in times to come.

Funded projects


Financed Projects

This section of our yearbook presents the research projects and feasibility studies launched by the ICT Innovation Cluster over the past three years of activity. Project development is one of the ICT Cluster’s most important activities and commits all those involved to contributing ideas, technology and skills, creating the best forms of cooperation and, most of all, investing in human capital. This commitment is renewed every year in response to a specific Call for Proposals issued by Regione Piemonte, Piedmont’s governing body, which requires that each of the 12 clusters submit their annual plan of activities, a document that contains requests for funding in order to develop innovation research projects.

The ICT Innovation Cluster’s three annual plans consist of 60 funded projects that bring in €25,2 million to the region, placing it in the forefront of regional clusters due to its capacity to attract resources. The projects involve 216 partners in all, with 70% of participants securing at least one grant. This is a significant outcome which has been achieved not only by involving participants in working groups that stimulate cooperation and the development of conceptual ideas that are in line with the ICT Innovation Cluster’s strategies, but also through the effective support provided to partnerships that helps turn ideas into quality projects.

ICT and innovation in other sectors: inter-cluster projects The ICT Innovation Cluster develops many partnerships with other Piedmontese innovation clusters in a strategic way. In fact, the opportunity for creating inter-cluster projects is absolutely essential, as ICT technology finds applications in all industrial sectors across the board. Inter-cluster cooperation provides ICT companies with project partners that can, on the one hand, voice user requirements and, on the other, participate in testing results. Moreover, cooperation with companies from other clusters can provide ICT companies with up-to-date knowledge of processes that are typical of other sectors, knowledge that is fundamental if they wish to propose process innovation. The ICT Innovation Cluster has developed a method for working in partnership with other clusters which ensures that companies affiliated to other clusters will be able to develop their projects by presenting them on the annual plan of the cluster that best suits them in terms of technological strategies, completion objectives and consequences. Today the ICT Innovation Cluster is contributing – both as a project leader and as a contributor – to a total of 22 projects, working in partnership with most of the region’s clusters:

Food and farming (2 projects)

Mechatronics and advanced production systems (7 projects)

Biotechnology and biomedicine (2 projects)

Digital creativity and multimedia (5 projects)

Renewable energy and mini-hydroelectric power (1 project) Sustainable architecture and hydrogen (3 projects)

Textiles (2 projects)

These inter-cluster projects account for 36% of all the projects and feasibility studies funded at the ICT Innovation Cluster, confirming its fundamental role when it comes to intersectorial cooperation on a regional level. 17


Financed Projects

What research? Project strategies The ICT Innovation Cluster’s strategies are targeted research areas that can involve a large number of companies and encourage cooperation and the use and acquisition of intersectorial knowledge (technological, process, industry-specific knowledge), even outside its own field of expertise. These strategies are identified and validated using a specific procedure that involves the region’s companies and research organisations. The development of strategies occurs in response to evolutionary trends that characterise the industrial, environmental and social sectors, and in line with development policies on a regional, national and European level. Furthermore, the topics chosen ensure the possibility of launching inter-cluster projects and partnerships, making the most of potential synergy and ICT needs in the region’s different manufacturing sectors. Initially identified as Business Process Management (BPM), Business Intelligence (BI) and Terminalistics (the evolution of terminals and their respective application interfaces), these strategies evolved over time in response to European directives, technical evaluations made by the public funding body and economic changes in the fabric of local businesses. Today the technological strategies identified – which are the basis for project development – are the following:

Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing

Today this is one of the most important technological trends and business trends in the field of ICT and it is the result of a process of increasing industrialisation affecting the IT sector and of the standardisation of technologies such as virtualisation, SOA architectures and Web 2.0. Such technology has stimulated the growing use of the Internet and corporate Intranet as reliable tools for supplying pervasive and cost-effective business services. Cloud computing has changed the paradigm of supplied IT services, which is acting in response to the growing level of interest – encouraged by the current instability of the economic climate – in solutions that offer greater flexibility and agility and at the same time lower costs and risks. Cloud computing infrastructure consists of five fundamental features: a self-service, on-demand approach, access through the Internet, the pooling of resources, flexibility and service monitoring.

Internet of Things

Internet

The fundamental idea that lies at the heart of the Internet of Things is that any of Things physical object or person can become a terminal connected to the Internet, capable of interacting independently with other entities on the network. The Internet of Things will allow people and objects to be connected at any time, in any place and with anyone, ideally taking advantage of whatever type of connection is available and within any type of service or business activity. Identification, network, software, hardware and embedded system technologies, data processing and data sharing technology, research and localisation technology and energy management technology have key roles for the future of this field. The fields of application range from the industrial sector (logistics, manufacturing, banking, support for commercial transactions) to the social sector (e-inclusion applications, services assisting the population) and environmental services (energy management, environmental sustainability, environmental protection and the prevention of natural disasters). 18


Business Process Management - Business Intelligence

Business Process Management Business Intelligence

This strategy merged two of those included in the ICT Innovation Cluster’s first annual plan: Business Process Management and Business Intelligence. In a market scenario characterised by instability and complexity, the main ingredients necessary to stand out and create a competitive advantage are dynamism, cost control and innovation. The flexible organisation of processes, the resolving of inefficiencies and the identification of possible areas for improvement and development become essential aims for a company that wants to maintain a high level of competitiveness on the market.

In order to achieve this result, business applications must take into account As Is data and apply it to To Be scenarios. BI technology for the analysis of the past and current state of a company, combined with BPM technology for the design and ongoing correction of processes, can pursue this aim.

Financed Projects

Topics in focus: ICT in action As well as technological strategies, five topics for investigation were identified and developed in order to encourage regional companies towards strategic technological fields of importance, both from the point of view of market growth and from the point of view of the innovative and revolutionary impact on the transformations they are bringing to the digital world: • Embedded Systems • Green e Smart Manufacturing • Mobile • Multimedia • Energy Efficient Buildings This organised system of information was made available to companies participating in the ICT Innovation Cluster as guidelines supporting project development.

Embedded Systems

Embedded systems

Embedded systems are one of the technologies that underlie the Internet of Things and all ICT strategies in general. They have entered all economic sectors and are one of the main drivers of the entire electronics industry. The introduction of wireless connectivity technology and its continuing progress in terms of response times, bandwidth, energy consumption, costs and standardisation has opened up new scenarios for applications where embedded systems are connected to each other, without the need for wires, and in corporated into networks. Embedded systems allow a better use of resources, reducing waste and pollution, supplying more information and better information as well as more accurate monitoring and control in several different fields of application: the aeronautical industry, the automobile industry, manufacturing, traffic management applications, logistics, energy management and health care. It is expected that embedded systems will see an evolution from specific sector requirements (homes, offices and factories) to forms of collective optimisation in line with the key concepts of the Smart City, Smart Factory and Smart Society.

Green e Smart Manufacturing In line with the European Factory of the Future (FoF) programme, which is part of the European Economic Recovery Plan launched at the end of 2008 in response to the global economic crisis, Smart Manufacturing summarises how information and communication technologies can make factories smarter and therefore production more efficient and flexible. The efficiency and sustainability of manufacturing systems should not be simply interpreted in terms of economic savings but also in terms emissions reduction (Green Manufacturing). To this end, among the most important areas of research and development in this field, we have identified: • Sensor technology applications (particularly WSN) and IoT (Internet of Things); • Simulation systems: the possibility of designing new processes and production sites virtually; • The introduction of wireless communication in factories; • Robotised systems, augmented vision and reality; • Cloud computing applied to automation; • Energy savings from the controlled shutting off (or stand-by) of devices. 20

Green e smart manufacturing


Mobile

Mobile

Today the mobile sector is one of the most important and revolutionary technological and business trends in the field of ICT and it is the result of a process of increasing evolution and convergence between the IT sector and that of telecommunications networks. The technological progress made on networks and the evolution of mobile phones into devices equipped with processing and application capabilities, such as smartphones and tablets, have recently stimulated the growing use of the Internet as a tool for supplying services and applications on the move. The mobile sector has contributed to popularising a user-centric approach and has encouraged the explosion of various categories of applications, the development of new, concrete opportunities for ICT and non-ICT companies, multichannel systems and the development of the Application Store concept. The mobile sector applies to many of our project development strategies, introducing new ways of collecting and using data/information through the use of smart devices that work as nodes or sensors in a network of objects and provide access to cloud computing services in a mobile ecosystem. The types of ICT technology that support mobile systems include a combination of devices, embedded systems, application software, middleware and network architecture (WLAN, mesh, WWAN) that provide opportunities for personalisation, context-awareness, connectivity and pervasiveness. There are many potential fields of application linked to the development of mobile technology, applications that can be applied across the board to the most diverse industries: from the manufacturing industry (logistics, manufacturing, asset management, natural resources, facilities, civil engineering and construction) to finance (banking, insurance), from sales (retail, support for sales transactions, utilities, property, field service) to social and health care services (public administration, transport, health care, public safety, armed forces, policing) and environmental services (agriculture, forestry).

Multimedia

Multimedia

The term multimedia is associated with the tools, applications and all the digital content that merge images, videos, graphics, text and sound. The main technological trends that have supported interest in and the development of multimedia systems and applications are mobility and wireless communication, the identification of recognised standards when producing content, innovation in man-machine interfaces and the widespread use of the Internet, which is a potential distribution channel for multimedia data. The potential identifiable in the main fields of application and the actual interest that can be gauged in the European Community has highlighted the strategic value of particular aspects of research and development, such as immersive and interactive man-machine technology, production, analysis and management of multimedia content technology and distribution platforms for digital content. The use of ICT technology for the production of multimedia content and experiences affects all sectors, not just the creative industries that are directly focused on producing multimedia content, but many other sectors that could benefit from multimedia to raise the quality of their products and services (i.e. industrial manufacturing, health care, education and training, environmental monitoring and energy monitoring).

Financed Projects

Energy Efficient Buildings

Energy

efficient Given the energy efficiency objectives that the European Union intends to reach buildings by 2020 and given the main projects involving Green Buildings on a European level, ICT technology and particularly the Internet of Things are considered to be of strategic importance in order to promote the practice of environmental sustainability in this sector, contributing to significant energy savings and a reduction in CO2 emissions (a reduction of up to 15.2% of current emissions) and at the same time guaranteeing an improvement in home comfort and safety. In fact, the application of IoT technology would allow the creation of smart buildings (green buildings, smart homes) where networks of sensors and actuators monitor and check environmental data (i.e. temperature, humidity, lighting) and energy consumption in real time and monitor the safety of the people inside these buildings. In line with the Internet of Things, the following aspects concerning the development of technology that will support applications in an Energy Efficient Building context have been identified: • Wireless sensor networks (for the storage, use and production of energy; sensors, actuators, monitoring systems that interface with energy consumption management systems) • Automation and monitoring systems (predictive monitoring systems, smart HVAC systems, smart lighting systems, ICT systems for energy micro-generation and storage) • Energy consumption monitoring (smart metering, intuitive feedback on consumption levels sent to users).

Evolution of terminals, interfaces and relative applicative platforms

This project evaluated the feasibility of a technological platform that allows museums to improve their visitors’ experience, offering interactive ‘edutainment’ services that take advantage of the integration of wireless technology and mobile devices.

Result and consequences The team conducted an investigation in this field with museums that represent best practices on a European and international scale, such as the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Paris Immigration Museum, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and, on a local level, the Fondazione Torino Musei. What emerged are the main requirements that ICT technology needs to meet: the encouragement of customer loyalty in an audience that already visits museums, an understanding of the general public’s behaviour, an increase in involvement and the supply of integrated services and innovative educational approaches. The study concentrated on museum visits and particularly on augmented reality solutions and the adoption of terminals to take advantage of the content that can improve a visitor’s experience. During the investigative phase, three main target groups were also identified that the study should focus on: teenagers (14-19 years of age), children (8-14 years of age) and people with disabilities. The mapping of the needs of these three target groups with reference to the different phases of the ‘user experience’ (pre-visit, visit, post-visit) allowed us to focus the feasibility study on two types of technological solutions, both of which support the visiting phase, available in a prototype form: • a solution for simplifying museums for those with cognitive disabilities (using devices owned by users themselves or provided by the museum)

Goals Envisaging debit cards as physical terminals for carrying out bank transactions begun on the phone or on the Internet, like an app. A debit card that recognises us from a mere touch and allows us to ask for help from an operator we can talk to faceto-face on screen, without the need for an ultra-fast data network. This is the vision that led the APM-Bank team during their feasibility study. The aim was to identify – through direct contact with banks and clients – the needs that today’s banking industry considers to be priorities in its ongoing modernisation, in order to evaluate what kinds of avant-garde technology can be made available.

Common Application Layer Extended Banking System

Project of industrial research & experimental development

Technological Path Goals This project was set up to develop, on the one hand, a basic application system or CAL (a Common Application Layer) which will offer integration services for the evolution of new vertical applications or ‘legacy’ type applications, and on the other hand, a complete banking IT system or XBS (eXtended Banking System), as a prototype demonstrating the feasibility and usefulness of the abovementioned system.

Result and consequences During the project, prototypes of the planned systems were developed. It is currently possible to use CAL to manage real data flows as well as in many other test situations in the project’s head company, Finance Evolution. Such middleware – designed for users such as analysts as well as technicians – can solve most of the market’s most common problems in a parameterised way using innovative and efficient technology. At the moment, CAL is already a concrete basis for future development which will lead to the creation of a true industrial product after the necessary adjustments are completed. In order to achieve this result, it will be necessary to invest further in medium to long-term work, work which is expected to have significant consequences. The XBS IT banking system, both as far as its ‘legacy’ and ‘new application’ aspects are concerned, has been improved with the CAL services that have already been tried and tested.

26

XBS has a market in the finance industry, which is Finance Evolution’s core business. However on a business level, it will be necessary to wait for improvements to CAL in order to achieve the actual merging of the two XBS and CAL systems. The development of prototypes also allowed the companies involved to enjoy immediate benefits in terms of know-how. Experiments in Web services and their orchestration, for example, led to an improvement in products as well as in company solutions based on such technology, not to mention pre-existing in-house processes. The approach and techniques used to organise the functions enabled the development of new skills, improved further by the academic experiments carried out by the university.

The study led to conclusions and recommendations on the project’s possible launch with advice that could help guide its priorities, courses of action, strategies and working methods. These characteristics are all described in a summary document that describes the following points: • preparatory and context analyses • technical feasibility • financial sustainability • economic and social cost-effectiveness • verification of procedures • sensitivity and risk analyses The results highlighted significant problems that had to be taken into account if the project were to be developed further, providing the players involved with an evaluation tool to help them decide whether to continue or abandon the DORP project. The study’s final result, therefore, consists of a series of conclusions and considerations on the possible completion of the DORP project. In the light of the analyses completed, these considerations advise parties involved not to launch the project.

Result and consequences An in-depth analysis of the lifecycle of a food voucher led to the outlining of a process that allows the thorough streamlining of its criteria of use. The project’s central idea is that it is possible to manage a digitisation procedure – while maintaining the paper form of these vouchers – at the time of payment where they are accepted (at a catering facility), which at the same time would verify their validity and 28

authenticity by communicating with a remote exchange. The first effective result of this process concerns the phases where vouchers are issued and distributed, attained by acquiring the details of the vouchers used as payment and supplying ID of the players involved (issuing company, employers, employees), so as to guarantee the availability and traceability of the voucher. However, the most innovative part of the project is the radical change in payment procedures: this can take place in a more traditional form that still uses paper vouchers but reads them and validates them using IT systems or in a form that uses mobile solutions, particularly payment using a QR code generator located at the catering facility and interfacing with applications made available on the consumer’s own smartphone. In both cases, catering facilities enjoy a noticeable improvement in efficiency levels, lowering the risk of fraud, theft and loss but most of all drastically reducing accounting time and costs.

The project’s testing ground involved the creation of two application prototypes. The first, consumer-oriented one, plans to interact with the access of a user in a particular area. By taking advantage of the location-based functions of terminals, it permits one to set up contextual navigation systems connected to third party services. The second, more business-oriented prototype, involves the creation of a merchandising management system. The project’s partners expect the following results: • by building on the results of the project, the turning of the prototype into a solid infrastructure for the rapid development of applications and services • the expansion of the range of products, services, technology and know-how possessed by project partners • affiliation to international schemes funded by Telecom Italia and open source projects launched by the developer community that are complementary to these international schemes The Is4.mobi platform has already been used by some partners to develop applications related to their product portfolio and for commissioned applications. Furthermore, it has been used as a technology basis for the “ICT Pole” mobile app.

The study validated the feasibility of the system, demonstrating the effectiveness of a virtual assistant able to express those emotional aspects that are fundamental for teaching musical language. After the feasibility study, the company decided to invest its own resources to continue the project, tackling the system’s research, development and production phases. The resulting product was the Canta Con Me mobile app, a voice tuner able to perceive voice quality and to report any errors in intonation. The app is also an interactive metronome and as well as voices it also recognises the beats forming a rhythm, helping people to improve their singing skills. The interface is based on play and entertainment and focuses on feelings to activate the learning process in a light-hearted and pleasant way. The application isn’t limited to singing and can capture any kind of musical performance, providing the performer with the sequence of notes produced, even with musical instruments, and thus providing valid support for one’s own evaluation of the progress made in his or her musical studies. Canta Con Me was made available through the biggest app stores in mid-2012, thus turning the initial innovative idea into concrete reality.

Technological Path Business intelligence

Goals This study concerned a semantic, geo-referenced, multichannel platform for the tourism industry, able to combine, classify and question content produced by users, in order to define a regional integrated system that could promote the values of a geographic area.

Result and consequences Thanks to a comparison with state-of-the-art tourism solutions, the feasibility study allowed us to identify the functional requirements of a content management system that would be bottom-up, semantic and geo-referenced, placing it in the wider context of a Destination Management System. Moreover, the semantic technology currently being tried in the tourism industry was studied, analysed and tested and the types of technology that best classify and combine their content automatically, making it easily accessible, were selected. What emerged is that the technology is ready to be used in a business context. An analysis of tour operators and their actual skills also led to the identification of a representation of the content that, though based on the needs of tourists, takes into account the actual capabilities and possibilities of operators, thus guaranteeing the smooth management of content on their part. The project’s partners have already enjoyed benefits from the study: Bludocks has continued the study of interfaces and plans to produce a product for the online sale of incoming packets. Trim and the Polytechnic of Turin are continuing their cooperation on semantic technology; the company in particular has decided to focus on semantics, which is now one of the two main strands for relaunching its IT range, even in fields other than tourism. Sinerga is continuing its analysis of the tourism industry and has begun important partnerships that identify it as a supplier of know-how to large companies. The GVS group is now carrying out a study to relaunch the interfaces of some of its key products.

Result and consequences In the ecosystem that is the Internet of Things, the study highlighted the technological opportunity for embarking upon new partnerships in order to study and develop digital applications for children that guarantee safety, usability and data protection in changing usage circumstances. As part of the ‘Internet of the Future’ it is necessary to identify a new benchmark model for the reliability of millions of recognisable objects, using models that focus on the needs of people, particularly children, keeping in mind their behaviour and cultural identity. A future aim of research in this field will be to produce prototypes that will verify the validity, reproducibility and repeatability of the identified model in other sectors. 36

What if a toy could enhance a child’s social interaction with another person? A child’s beloved object can facilitate communication between the child and his friend, relative, or teacher through a series of simple gestures.

VANACA Video and Audio Navigation and Automatic Content Analyis

Tipology Feasibility study

Technological Path Business Process Management

Goals The development of a multimedia business intelligence platform which offers the automatic cataloguing of audio and video material.

Result and consequences An advanced prototype was developed that allows users to navigate multimedia content such as video footage or audio recordings. Video recordings of council meetings at Regione Valle d’Aosta were used during the experimentation phase. These meetings can last several hours, making it very difficult to recover the information contained in the recordings quickly and efficiently. The prototype allows users to identify precise clips, such as a particular speech by a councillor on a topic of interest and to start the video exactly at the chosen moment. It is also possible to navigate among the different topics raised during the meetings, identifying, for example, how many speeches were made on a particular issue (decrees, etc.). The prototype is an example of how it could be used in the video information research sector, currently growing both on a professional and consumer level. In fact, the use of video recordings of meetings, conferences, lessons, technical and commercial presentations is becoming more and more popular in the professional market, while services that handle both user-generated content, such as YouTube, and professionally produced material (such as news and sports channels) are increasingly widespread in the consumer sector.

Project summary An innovative business intelligence application that will have to interface with the data stored in bank IT systems: both data concerning the handling of customers and transactions as well as data stored in the Archivio Unico Informatico (the centralised computer archive that is obligatory for banks and of the same importance, as per anti-money laundering legislation). Using the most innovative data-mining technology, the system will not stop at detecting cases for investigation, but it will also forecast the risk of possible illegal actions of clients that are not among those cases reported for investigation. More specifically, the system will use the concept of automatic learning (machine learning) whereby it will be able to learn previously unknown causal relationships between the statistical distribution of data and the possible risks connected to money laundering, as well as take advantage of the relative heuristic algorithms and artificial intelligence, mainly based on the use of neural networks and Support Vector Machines (SVM).

In terms of the data that will be handled, the system will use data on relationships and transactions, accounts, funds and occasional transactions, reporting problems and analogies concerning a customer’s identity, the actual account holder (in the case of companies), companies owned by trust companies or foreign companies, identifying those transactions that could be considered split operations. The project’s concept stems from an actual shortfall in the bank industry, where checks on customers are done manually, without the help of a specialised system and are only geared towards detecting problems, rather than preventing them. . 43

ASIU Active Steering Input Unit: product/process integrated designing/prototype development

Goals This project has the twofold aim of developing an advanced prototype of an Active Steering Input Unit (or ASIU) and identifying a pilot production line able to test Steer-by-wire (SBW) electronic power steering systems, technology that is currently in expansion. The vehicles that today could benefit most from this technology are buses, combine harvesters, backhoe loaders and vehicles for shifting containers, but most of all farm tractors. Comfort, advanced functions (GPS, repetitive or automatic manoeuvres…) and safety (at high speed on roads or in steep areas) are the features that will encourage a shift from hydraulic ‘Steer by pipe’ to SBW. One of the market leaders in the agricultural industry is already producing its own specific solution. A fundamental feature of SBW systems is the electronic steering command unit. There are many different kinds offering conventional performance that are already used in many different fields and are quickly becoming popular. Existing units usually provide two angle signals and in some cases are able to give the driver passive feedback. In the ASIU project, the team involved the Polytechnic of Turin for methodological support and for a study of the electromechanical architecture that is best suited to carrying out this function, as well as a qualified group of Piedmontese companies (Bylogix, Corona, Effegi Elettronica, ELECTROPARTS and Teseo), able to provide the project with the right technology.

ICT’s role The ICT partner’s role in this project (Bylogix) involved the identification of software specifications for the ASIU, the creation of the embedded application and the identification and production of end-of-line embedded software.

AUTUMN 2 AUTomotive hUman Mobile Network 2

Tipology Project of industrial research & experimental development

Technological Path Goals To rethink the way we experience travel and bring the consumer closer to distant destinations, people and content: this is the vision that brings together vehicles and mobile devices and this is the vision of AUTUMN2. The project’s main aim is to identify and develop instruments that allow us to combine cars, mobile technology and the Web. AUTUMN2 stems from the results of the AUTUMN project that created all the instruments necessary to set up interaction between the driver or the passenger with the car. On the basis of such tools, AUTUMN2 expands the concept, highlighting the relationship with the outside environment through the use of mobile technology.

Project summary In AUTUMN2 mobile technology has a central role. It has two purposes: to equip the car with new interactive tools (for example: maintenance information) and to supply access to the Internet in order to be able to use innovative services (such as social navigators, tourist and weather services, telediagnostics, car sharing, etc.). To this end, new mobile/vehicle interface devices – able to connect to the car’s diagnostics system and to present the data in different ways depending on the user or the environment where they are viewed – will be developed on the one hand and applications for mobile, Web and social interoperability will be developed on the other. The kinds of technology that can integrate and aggregate sources of information found on the Web – such as social network platforms, services supplied by operators (such as mapping and routing functions) and sector portals – will be of fundamental importance. In order to validate the technology, software and devices developed during the course of the project, three possible application scenarios have been identified: Social Scenario, Intelligent Transport System and Remote Diagnostic Monitoring. An example of how these scenarios could be developed would be if the car could find its nearest dealership or garage, suggest its own maintenance programme, make the most of, and contribute to, traffic information and so forth. 46

CloudCEM Cloud Fast Scalable EM Modeling

Tipology Project of industrial research & experimental development

Technological Path Goals Electromagnetic modelling (EM) is found in many industrial and scientific organisations and is used in various fields such as aeroplane, satellite, ship and car design. Due to the complexity of the structures analysed, EM software requires enormous computer resources, both in terms of memory and computation, resulting in long lead times for developing simulations, lead times that are not compatible with the time available in the industry for design and analysis. The Cloud Fast Scalable EM Modeling (CloudCEM) project intends to take advantage of the benefits resulting from the adoption of a Cloud Computing model for solving EM problems so as to reduce the time necessary for processing data, limiting the cost and optimising computation resources.

Startup Project summary The project intends to create a Cloud Computing infrastructure that permits the rapid and cost-effective creation of simulations of electromagnetic effects on very complex structures. The model used will have to be a kind of hybrid in order to take advantage of the potential of both public and private Cloud Computing. Cloud infrastructure monitoring and metering tools will be examined and implemented, tools that will allow us to know exactly what proportion of computational resources are used. The most interesting aspect concerns the monitoring of applications and computing resources that will work on different (private-public) Clouds.

Technological Path Internet of Things

Partner Leader: Coord 3 Industries (SME) E.X.A. (SME) Politecnico di Torino (DELEN) (RB)

Project summary The CMMs currently on the market work thanks to a controller located near the machine and connected via electric and data cables. The concept of this project is to develop a remote controller based on wireless communication: an important innovation in the field of measurement instruments because, while the last decade has seen enormous improvements in terms of the level of precision of such measurements and their software interface, they have – until now – basically kept their original functional structure. A remote wireless controller would allow us to take the first step towards the ‘Factory of the Future’ scenario, where various different kinds of devices are connected to a company network and work independently with the option of remote control. The structure of this controller could potentially be applied to other kinds of machine tools, widely used in the manufacturing industry. Moreover this solution allows us to reduce the number of cables on the machine significantly, eliminating a CMM part that is particularly subject to wear and tear. At the same time, a reduction in the number of cables will allow us to save miles of copper cable for each machine, resulting in significant savings both from an environmental and an economic point of view. This result would lead to achieving the project’s three main aims: the improvement of a company’s environmental performance, the improvement of the product’s quality and technological value and the reduction of production costs.

Project summary

Duration

At the moment, the energy production industry does not offer management solutions that can be sustained by small and medium-sized businesses. Moreover the use of performance indicators is not so widespread, not even in large production companies, due to the lack of a culture of data analysis or B.I. applied to operating sectors.

8 months

This research aims to provide a model that can be used to aid the optimal management of an electricity production plant that will channel plant maintenance needs and can estimate the cost effectiveness of maintenance procedures, comparing the cost of such work with the reduction in the economic performance of the system. The project’s innovative value consists in applying B.I. technology to an industrial sector that is currently not familiar with such solutions. The benchmark market for the feasibility study was that of SMEs operating in the field of electricity plant management and CHP plants, as well as companies that supply professional or technological assistance to industries and utilities.

Thanks to contact sensors on doors, for example, it will be possible to identify the user’s position, while floor sensors will supply more precise location data. It will be possible to monitor various body positions (standing, tilted or stretched out) using a mercury-free level sensor vial or a multi-axis accelerometer. These instruments are able to identify the body’s angle, the speed of rotation and acceleration, detecting any falls. In addition, videocameras placed in strategic parts of the house will allow us to monitor and analyse the patient’s movements (privacy will be guaranteed by blurring the image and studying only the outline of the user’s body).

Project summary This study aims to identify criteria for the development of a service that can support financial consultancy services in every way: from client profiling and the evaluation of financial instruments, the evaluation of the suitability of an investment given the identified client profile, to monitoring the investment over time and risk management. Companies, institutional investors and private individuals find it increasingly important to identify sophisticated tools that: • allow them to evaluate financial instruments in their entirety (on several levels, including actual costs, taxation, cash flow and not just in terms of returns); • allow them to make a custom evaluation (on the basis of actual data available to the client); • make the service accessible to small and medium-sized operators as well, currently prevented by the high cost. Evaluation and analysis algorithms will be examined that take into account not just the official performance of a product but most of all the ‘personal’ situation of the investor: the costs he or she has actually had to pay out for the transaction (which in actual fact can vary from one operator to another), the risk taken on compared to total assets, cash flow requirements and investment timescale. Eventually, the study aims to glean recommendations for a future software prototype which could also be used via the Web and which would allow users the option of checking each investment regularly and monitoring its performance over time, proving to be a valuable decision-making aid.

MoMa Intelligent HUB for Mobile Mash-up over IP

Goals This project proposes the experimental development of software architecture for the modelling, design and supply of IT processes that can be supplied ‘over IP’ (Internet Protocol), allowing mobile users to access existing IT systems that up to now have been designed to be accessed from PCs, thanks to new digital services that offer data retrieval, organisation, synthesis and presentation (mashup).

Project summary The project will develop software architecture which will allow the identification of services for mobile users using data collection, mashup and automatic GUI (Graphical User Interface) rendering systems, without the need to install any business logic on single devices. The architecture will be designed to be installable on company and institutional servers (clients) or ASPs (Application Service Providers for access via SaaS mode). By setting up standard interfaces, the architecture will integrate and expand the capability of existing software components held by project partners, for a later extension to new third party functions and services. In particular, the added capability supporting GIS (Geographic Information System) and BI (Business Intelligence) functions, the integration with sensors and digital voicing services will allow the identification and supply of complex multimodal, multimedia and proximity services, thus extending the number of potential future uses of this solution. The project also aims to test the architecture using three prototypes in three specific environments, chosen for their diversity and functional complexity: • Museum-based tourism with emphasis on WSN (Wireless Sensor Network) experimentation to support LBS (Location Based Services) processes for tourists • Integrated home-based healthcare and social services with an emphasis on experimenting GIS functions for operators • CRM (Customer Relationship Management) processes for on-site technical assistance with an emphasis on mobile BI experimentation for blue-collar workers and management.

Intercluster Partner Project summary Monitoring and control systems are strategic elements for the true optimisation of processes in terms of production efficiency and reliability and sustainable energy. To date, the majority of such systems are equipped with sensors and actuators and are based on cabled solutions that place enormous limitations on the option of reconfiguring the product environment. Radio technology, able to deliver flexibility to monitoring and control systems, is a valid alternative to cabled systems. The proposed communication platform consists of multi-radio nodes that cooperate in order to identify a network intelligence able to promote the opportunistic use of wireless technology with complementary characteristics in terms of data rate, latency, resilience to the radio channel’s conditions, energy consumption and the ability to organise into independent networks. The final aim is to:

RAILWAVES Onboard train monitoring based on the Wireless Sensors Network

Goals The aim of this project is to create a railway monitoring system made up of a network of wireless sensors (WSN – the Wireless Sensor Network) distributed along the length of a train. The data detected by the sensors will be managed in an integrated way in order to diagnose conditions of mechanical stress, potential breakages and identify the correct timing for maintenance work in advance. In the railway industry, rolling stock is constructed around bearings that take most of the mechanical strain. By measuring the working temperature of the bearings, as well as analysing the vibrations, one can anticipate potential breakage conditions in advance. In the past, the opportunity of monitoring this size of object has come across the problems and the complexity inherent in installing and maintaining cables. Railwaves eliminates the cables, transferring all the intelligence necessary to acquire, process and transfer the data near to the sensors, implementing distributed architecture. The project calls for the installation of a prototype on a train (or a similar system) to test it under normal working conditions.

ICT’s role Our partner, C-Labs, which patented and developed the innovative short-range wireless communication (WINE) technology, will identify the wireless communication support system. Thanks to its expertise in antennas, ISMB will be responsible for designing and creating a prototype of the antenna which will be placed near the bearings on the axes of the train’s wheels. Finally, Bylogix will analyse the HW and SW characteristics required for the safety of the wireless system, supporting development work to integrate such requirements.

Duration Project summary

24 months

Compared to the usual smart-metering systems used by electricity distributors, the advantages offered by a framework of optimisation like the one proposed in the SMILE-O project are the extreme configurability of the data to be collected, the possibility of offering it to users and the use of the Internet to collect data, which allows such data to be combined with different kinds of information that cannot be directly collected on a local level.

Startup

The forecast model that will be created will be able to process energy forecast indicators that can be viewed by users in order to plan an increase or reduction of consumption on the basis of energy production. This will allow an increase in the percentage of exchange in practice or aid possible cost factors, such as off-peak rates. The model will be tested on a mini-windfarm connected to an industrial estate of small businesses in order to select the production processes that should be activated on the basis of forecasts regarding energy produced from renewable sources.

SRT LOCUPS An innovative, embedded, ultra-precise geographic and local Real-Time Locating System, with secure identification and communications

Goals This project will tackle the problems of ultra-precise positioning through the synergy of all today’s state-of-the-art technology in the field of locating. The aim is to create a device able to calculate its own position accurately, that can be used to check vehicles used to transport high value goods and that can generally be used to automate procedures where the ultra-precise location of an object is essential.

Project summary The solution to the problem of ultra-precise locating aims to meet three very important requirements: reliability, a guarantee of service and precision. The device that this project intends to create will meet these requirements by combining two different kinds of technology: satellite locating and RTLS (Real-time Locating System) locating, using sensors based on UWB (Ultra WideBand) systems. SRT LOCUPS will create a system able to take advantage of both types of technology and to send data concerning position in real time to a control system, using the appropriate communication channels. The project will not only analyse the requirements and study the most suitable locating algorithms, but most of all it will produce prototypes of receivers for satellite locating and locating sensors. In following the Internet of Things paradigm and approach, the two locating systems will work together and the transition from one to the other will take place in a controlled and managed way, but most of all in a totally automatic and transparent way for the end user.

Project summary An experimental prototype will be developed for a software and hardware platform, which can be supplied in SaaS mode, able to analyse a series of video images automatically. The aim is to extract summary data on the content of videos from video cameras placed in particularly interesting locations, in order to develop intelligent systems of video analysis. The output of this system could be used to simplify the work of human operators, or to guarantee the execution of combinations of operations in a totally automatic way. During an initial phase, two main planning activities will be carried out: • the gathering of functional, non-functional and architectural requirements in text form; • the identification of requirements using UML (Unified Modelling Language) use case diagrams, ER models (entity-relationship models) and User eXperience diagrams (UX). Then the algorithms necessary to identify people in an environment will be developed, which are necessary for tracking figures as they move and for movement recognition. Moreover the Artificial Intelligence component that will be housed in the system’s central server will be designed and produced. The aim will be to identify a solution that is as scaleable as possible, so as to allow the re-use of algorithms even in operating conditions that are very different from each other, thanks to the identification in declarative form (taxonomy, classes, models…) of the domain and context information that the algorithms will work on, keeping the algorithms as flexible and versatile as possible 74

SVPP Smart Virtual Power Plant

Goals The project will verify if and how the creation of a ‘smart grid’ can improve efficiency in the supply of power from renewable energy sources: distributed and non-distributed power generation plants, solar power, mini-hydro and CHP. In particular, the aim is to verify the economic impact of the introduction of a small-scale smart grid where energy can come from a large distributor outside the network as well as from small producers inside the network (such as solar panels, mini hydro and biomass). To this end, a software model will be built first which will allow us to visualise a standard smart grid. This will be used to configure a real system and then identify the best way of using renewable energy sources so as to reduce our dependence on energy from outside the network. For example, the model could answer questions such as: how many ‘batteries’ do we need to include? How many solar panels should we really install? The model will also take into account economic and financial aspects, calculating when the smart grid becomes costeffective (i.e. at what power production levels and in what operating conditions). Thus it will provide concrete information to potential grid managers: current energy producers or plant managers, as well as industrial zones, technological parks and universities.

Project summary The TA_SL project intends to study and develop an innovative and original integrated technological, methodological and operative architecture to a prototype level, with special hardware and software components, that permits the supervision and surveillance of construction sites and provides assistance in identifying and managing risk scenarios. The technological paradigm proposed includes the system’s ability to perceive the environment in real time: the presence of and interaction between things and people, the location of resources, the tracing of movements and the measurement of environmental and human variables and parameters on site. Furthermore, the system will be able to perceive the conditions of resources and of the environment where it is operating, dynamically adapting itself to them. An awareness in real time of one’s own working environment and the possibility of implementing procedures and processes to evaluate risk as well as activating prevention and emergency measures will allow the system to implement risk mitigation and management scenarios.

Project summary The project aims to expand the secure and reliable capability of future professional wireless systems that will be developed for communication between groups of people and their coordination, possibly without the support of fixed infrastructure. Such systems will lead to greater efficiency in the work of emergency service groups and teams. The work of civil defence workers, public safety workers, medical staff and paramedics will be improved even in difficult emergency situations. Even safety on construction sites could be improved with enormous social impact. Finally, the opportunities for the passive geo-referencing and locating of missing persons, victims of avalanches etc are also interesting. In many sectors, safety equipment worn by personnel already includes the requirement of wearing reflective headgear and jackets. These surfaces are an interesting resource that can be used to reduce the need for traditional antennas with the added advantages of reducing bulk, lowering energy consumption and improving efficiency in receiving and emitting signals close to the theoretical maximum. One of the project’s aims is an awareness of the importance of reducing a person’s exposure to electromagnetic fields (particularly the more sensitive parts of the body). For this reason, a particular layout of antennas will be studied in an effort to maximise the emissions radiated towards the outside of the body, protecting the body from exposure to such emissions (possibly in an omni-directional way) without impeding movement. . 78

transforming and loading data in a Business Intelligence system (known as ETL systems) normally uses data that has already been structured, or partially structured, stored in a company’s IT system. However, when information is sourced from the Web, it is not structured and it is definitely not reliable. In order to extract information from the Web, it is therefore necessary to identify algorithms that will allow us to determine the level of reliability of a website and load unstructured information to a data warehouse. The project aims to define such algorithms, implement them and experiment their use for the analysis of information found on the Internet.

Intercluster Project

WSAN-M&C Wireless Sensor & Actuator Network for indoor environmental Monitoring and Controlling

Tipology Project of industrial research & experimental development

Partner Goals The WSAN-M&C project aims to develop an integrated environmental monitoring and regulation of air conditioning system that combines the power of flexibility and precision of a wireless monitoring system with the potential for extensive temperature regulation done on single terminals. In the context of energy savings in buildings, we are witnessing the spread of ‘energy service’ contracts that have as their central principle the reduction of energy consumption. To avoid this becoming detrimental to the comfort of the occupants, this type of contract requires that contractually established indoor environmental conditions be adhered to. In most cases, however, the testing of indoor temperatures occurs only when residents complain, with spot measurements that are unable to provide a comprehensive evaluation of the quality of the service because they relate to a period of time that is too short. Another key aspect behind the project is the necessity to have temperature regulation systems that act on a network of single terminals to ensure the high performance of indoor heating quality. Finally, the last in the range of considerations that underlie the project when it comes to air conditioning energy consumption is the size of existing buildings and therefore the need for temperature regulation systems which use wireless technology to reduce implementation costs and the difficulties often introduced by cables.

At the moment there are foreign companies that are not taking into account the peculiarities of mobile navigation despite supplying some of these services. Moreover, these companies mainly use their systems in usability studies on websites rather than for marketing analysis. In contrast, the WUIT system could become an advanced Web-marketing tool which would offer integration with existing Web analytics frameworks, marketing analysis and advertisement tools as an added value, thus integrating current state-of-the-art technology significantly.

The project aims to develop a non-commercial prototype system capable of carrying out functional simulation nondestructive inspection tests for the food and pharmaceutical industries.

33 months

The identification of foreign bodies and other substances should be of the NDT (Non Destructive Testing) type and carried out in harmony with the manufacturing process, i.e. without affecting the pace of manufacturing. In particular, this research will focus on making the most of the typical properties of TeraHertz frequencies (or T-rays) and combining them with existing imaging technology used in visible light and X-ray frequencies. Technological efforts will aim to: • identify applications where the physical properties of T-rays offer an advantage when compared to existing viewing technology and those where they offer results that were previously unfeasible;

μCloud Micro Cloud

Tipology Project of industrial research & experimental development

Technological Path Goals This project is part of an avant-garde technological trend that aims at cloud computing convergence with embedded systems, recognised by large companies of the calibre of Microsoft and Google and research centres such as Boston’s MIT as the future of IT. The project aims to innovate products and processes in the industrial and manufacturing sector in order to solve problems concerning the management, monitoring and improvement of embedded terminals working in a number of different fields: industry, smart mobility, energy saving, smart metering and smart building.

Cloud Computing

Partner Leader: BEPS Engineering (SME) Saet (SME) Tierra (LE) Istituto Superiore Mario Boella (RB)

Duration 24 months

Project summary The μCloud system will integrate embedded terminals, currently at the centre of many systems, with a technologically avantgarde platform for managing processes and product lifecycles, done in cloud computing. μCloud will make it possible to collect data on the working status of terminals and their need for maintenance, as well as gather information useful for planning the development of new functions. In this way we will achieve the smart management of terminals which will reduce running costs, especially after-sales costs. More specifically, the idea intends to evolve the hardware and operating system of current embedded systems in order to gear them towards connecting with Cloud services. In order to do this, an embedded level of functions will be created that project participants have called Device to Cloud (D2C). The data collected and aggregated by the μCloud platform could lead to the identification of new business models thanks to the connection with the data marketplaces that complete what cloud computing offers. With this in mind, the project will suggest important directions for innovation, such as the possibility of considering devices not just as objects with specific functions, but also as generators of information with their own intrinsic business value. This scenario constitutes a new paradigm – that project partners have identified as Device as a Service (DaaS) – according to which the cost of embedded terminals will be largely compensated by the value of the data they can generate . 84

Hicare Research High Performance Business Intelligence Technology Lilith is the platform to create any type of application for business planning, simulation and forecasting. Hicare is having several awards: - IDC’s vendor watchlist profile: “Hicare Research, business insight in data discovery for a new generation of Decision Makers” - selection of Hicare Research among the top innovative Italian companies to take part the Shanghai Expo 2010 by the Italian Government. Lilith Touch BI™ was exposed in the Italian Pavilion - Nomination as “Technology Pioneer 2011 Candidate” by the World Economic Forum.

Skills By Lilith you can build complex models of management control and budgeting with Dashboards for business and marketing analysis, and for financial monitoring in all industrial sectors.

Products and services Lilith is a revolutionary Decision Support System based on an italian brand new Data Management Technology: HCR® was invented by the Phd. Roberto Marchisio in 1996. To provide the Decision makers with consistent information aimed to take the right decisions, a data transformation process is needed to convey the data in the most suitable way to be immediately informative. As a Decision Support System, Lilith helps an organization’s Management to figure out, on a real-time basis, sound and consistent Information out of internal and external data sources. Transforming raw data into semantically meaningful information is a complex and elaborate process, involving seven steps that can be seen in sequence: data cleansing, data collection, data staging, data calculation, simulation, reporting and broadcasting. Lilith achieves those seven steps seamlessly, operating at the decision level just like Enterprise Resource Planners (ERP) do at the transaction level. Moreover, a deployed Business Model should provide Decision Makers with immediate answers to all unpredicted questions without waiting time. For that reason, a brand new technology at the database level was designed: the HCR® database (Hierarchical, Cartesian, Relational). The Decision Makers can query Lilith even without technical skills. 162
