Ricerca e sviluppo nell'ambito del Sistema Integrato di sensori in ambiente cloud per la Gestione Multirischio Avanzata (SIGMA)
Year: 2013 – 2015 Project: Research and Development Client: Italian Ministry of Research
SIGMA (Sistema Integrato di sensori in ambiente cloud per la Gestione Multirischio,
Integrated Sensors System in Cloud Environments for Multirisk Management)
is a multilevel architecture to collect, integrate, and process heterogeneous data
coming from a large number of sensor networks (weather, seismic, vulcanic, hidric,
traffic, naval, environmental, etc). Its goal is to enhance control and monitoring
systems, as well as industrial production chains, to provide data useful to prevent
and manage risk situations, thanks to services provided to citizens and companies,
both public and private.
The system has been designed to enable its usage in areas and situations which are
critical and do not have normal communication infrastructures to transfer data
collected from the sensor networks.
In this project, memebers of Lockless S.r.l. have worked as researchers to study
and realize a replication system for the collected data, enforcing a high availability
of data in case of critical situations, which could lead as well to communication
Moreover, in the context of this collaboration, they have realized/integrated a data
exchange system to allow the usage of the proposed architecture transparently with
respect to the data format used by every producer (sensors in the networks) and the
consumers (monitoring and emergency management applications).
