Università Politecnica delle Marche

Università Politecnica delle Marche (UNIVPM) is a mid-size academic center ranking high among the Italian universities including 5 Faculties: Engineering, Medicine and Surgery, Economy, Science and Agriculture.  

The Department of Industrial Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (DIISM) will participate in the project with the Mechanical and Thermal Measurement Group (MTM).  

Main areas of research relate to the development and application of new sensors and sensor network, experimental techniques for clinical and biomedical use, indoor environmental and structural monitoring, non-destructive measurement and testing, and design and development of embedded systems.  

Role in the project:  

UNIVPM will mainly contribute to the project developing the use case configurator, leading the WP4, Standards, Norms & Interoperability.  

UNIVPM will use experiences in transversal measurement solutions to monitor the quality of life, physiological status, stress, comfort, etc. of people and environment to develop a tool that can identify the optimal sensor network and coaching devices for the user.  

In particular, the MTM research group will participate in the project by bringing its expertise on sensor network considering non-obtrusive measurement systems and signals pre-processing and data storage strategies. The group is involved in projects where pilots on real users at home are developed.
