Abstract: The acceleration of Digital Agriculture is evident through the increased adoption of digital technologies on farms including smart machines, sensors and cloud computing. In this paper we present the preliminary results of the research project funded by Università Politecnica delle Marche in 2018 "PFRLab: Setting of a precision farming robotic laboratory for cropping system sustainability and food safety and security", which is still underway. In this context, as first result, an interdepartmental Research and Services Center called "Smart Farming" has been set up with the aim to strengthen multidisciplinary collaborations in the fields of Agriculture and Forestry, Geomatics, ICT and Robotics. Regarding field activities the SPAD 502 as well as Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) provide a good estimate of the Chlorophylla+b content in durum wheat leaves so can be used to predict in a quickly and non-destructively way, the crop greenness status and to identify any nutritional deficiencies in real time. Future research activities are certainly needed to fully explore the potentialities of conservation agriculture and precision farming, and to drive the transition process from conventional agriculture to modern conservation agriculture and precision farming techniques. In-depth studies are planned on the combined effect of nitrogen fertilization and soil management on the main production variables of durum wheat in order to evaluate whether specific tools for precision agriculture applications can find significant diffusion even in Mediterranean cereal based cropping systems.

Abstract: Today the monitoring of energy variables plays a key-role in the proper management of buildings to optimize costs along with the low emission profile and comfortable environments. The monitoring could be augmented by adding also optimization aspects that could decrease the energy/costs. Up to now the optimization is performed by using building and context (district) data, but with no or rough evaluation of comfort conditions delivered to the occupants. The work presented in this paper is derived from the ENERGIS project that takes into account individual buildings and districts including detailed comfort conditions representing a novelty in the Energy Management System. The monitoring is used to locally sense the energy demand while the optimization is performed at two different scales. The first optimization tries to consider different aspects related to the thermal management of rooms, supported by a novel sensor that is able to evaluate the comfort taking into account the room model and to control the thermal actuators to track a comfort set-point. The second level of optimization starts from the collected data from each building to set-up a district model that is able to map and then predict the energy demand enabling an energy management that is built on the concept of “sharing”. This paper outlines the overall system architecture that exploits the benefit of IoT also showing the first optimization level performed on a business office showing the overall pipeline that starts from the sensing of environment and ends with the control of actuators to track an optimized set-point.

Abstract: The problem of building detection in multi-source aerial data has a large variety of applications from map updating to the detection of illegal construction. The development of a capability to integrate multispectral and LiDAR technologies has been proved to be the most effective strategy in dealing with the problem. An automated and combined approach enables such joint capabilities to process data, reducing human effort that is usually limited to the creation of training sets. This aspect plays a key role in getting accurate results and it is central to dealing with the problem of an imbalanced data set. We tailor the Bayesian Vector Quantizer algorithm (BVQ) to the problem of building detection from multi-source high-resolution aerial data like LiDAR with a focus on the imbalanced data set problem. The result is a methodology that is optimised towards the solution of strongly imbalanced problems where noise is present and where the number of training samples for buildings over classes like trees, land and grass is one order of magnitude lower. The formulation is compared with other well-adopted approaches which highlight the relative strengths of the BVQ approach.

Abstract: The use of 3D models to document archaeological ndings witnessed to boost in the latest years, mainly thanks to the large adop- tion of digital photogrammetry for the virtual reconstruction of ancient artifatcs. For this reason, the widespread availability of digital 3D objects obliges the research community to face with a hard challenge: which is the best way for allowing visitors being in contact with the real estate of cultural goods? The work described in these pages answers to these questions by describing a novel solution for the enhanced interaction and visualization of a complex 3D model . The installation consists in an autostereoscopic display paired with a remotely connected (with a wired connection) touch-pad for the interaction with the contents displayed in it. The main advantage of using such technology is represented by the fact that one is not obliged to wear cumbersome devices but at the same time one can have a 3D view of the object without any additional aid. The system allows, through a touch-pad, to manage the 3D views and interact with with a very small object that in its virtual dimension is magnied with respect to a classical museum arrangement. The research results, applied to the real case exhibition presented, have proved the innovation and usability of the multimedia solutions, which required the use of complex hardware components and a tricky implementation of the whole software architecture. The digital disruption in the CH domain should be also entrusted in the use of advanced interfaces that at the same time are intuitive and usable interaction methods

Abstract: Linear buffer strips (BS) along watercourses are commonly adopted to reduce run-off, accumulation of bank-top sediments and the leaking of pesticides into fresh-waters, which strongly increase water pollution. However, the monitoring of their conditions is a difficult task because they are scattered over wide rural areas. This work demonstrates the benefits of using a standard data layer and Augmented Reality (AR) in watershed control and outlines the guideline of a novel approach for the health-check of linear BS. We designed a mobile environmental monitoring system for smart maintenance of riverbanks by embedding the AR technology within a Geographical Information System (GIS). From the technological point of view, the system's architecture consists of a cloud-based service for data sharing, using a standard data layer, and of a mobile device provided with a GPS based AR engine for augmented data visualization. The proposed solution aims to ease the overall inspection process by reducing the time required to run a survey. Indeed, ordinary operational survey conditions are usually performed basing the fieldwork on just classical digitized maps. Our application proposes to enrich inspections by superimposing information on the device screen with the same point of view of the camera, providing an intuitive visualization of buffer strip location. This way, the inspection officer can quickly and dynamically access relevant information overlaying geographic features, comments and other contents in real time. The solution has been tested in fieldwork to prove at what extent this cutting-edge technology contributes to an effective monitoring over large territorial settings. The aim is to encourage officers, land managers and practitioners toward more effective monitoring and management practices

Abstract: It is well known that the most common and largely used assistive technology among the visually impaired community is the white cane. Despite it is a passive technology with a very limited range of work, its easiness of use and low cost make still prevalent its use. Many technologies have been proposed as alternative assistive devices (in literature and on the market) to improve the autonomous mobility of people affected by eye diseases. Nevertheless, whatever is the physical quantity used by these active assistive technologies - mainly ultrasonic or optical sensors - they present many limitations and none of them adequately meets the international guidelines defined for the electronic travel aids and the specific requests coming from the visually impaired community. This chapter aims to provide an overview of the existing travel aids for people affected by visual disorders, discussing pros and cons of available technologies, and to describe the design and the characterization of a novel class of electronic travel aids based on electromagnetic fields, whose advantages, with respect to the traditional ultrasonic and optic devices, will be explained. Starting from a laboratory prototype, the aspects relative to the miniaturization of the device will be discussed, with a particular attention to the realization of a small radiating element to be attached onto the cane. Operative tests with a blind end user will be reported, demonstrating several potentialities of the electromagnetic technology: detecting in advance (few meters from the user) dangerous objects of different shape and material, detecting the presence of obstacles located at chest or head levels, providing the position of the obstacle respect to the user, easiness of use, etc.

Abstract: One of the main challenges for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAVs) is to extend the endurance of small vehicles such as multi-rotors. Actually, Li-po batteries that guarantee a flight of about 20 min power this type of vehicles. The endurance can be extended by enabling vehicles to look for recharging station(s). In this paper, we propose a vision system able to detect and track a given pattern hosted on the target-landing platform. The pattern is also useful to estimate the UAV position while approaching the target or during the hovering close to the target. The paper focuses on an optimized adaptive thresholding technique that manages critical situations as changes in the scene’s illumination / shadows. The developed system runs at 90 Hz for processing a 752×480 grayscale image. Preliminary results on an NVidia Tegra Jetson K1 platform are also presented to distribute the computation between CPU and GPU.

Abstract: The dissemination and exploitation of cultural heritage milestones by using multimedia and interactive technologies continuously and quickly grows capturing the attention of academia and companies. It is necessary to adopt the state of the art technologies to present and make bi-directional the interaction of users with cultural heritage objects. In this work, we present two different applications of novel technologies applied to the Vitruvian man of Leonardo. The first application is the mirror that exploits a 3D depth sensor to compare the proportions of a user with the perfect ones of the Vitruvian man. The second application is a complex interaction between a complete novel 3D model of the Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man, sounds and image effects inside a 360-degrees hologram. These two systems are the results of interaction between academia and the 3D EVE spin-off company.

Abstract: In this paper we present a methodological workflow developed within the "ArcheoFano" project, improving collection, organization and management of a GIS data structure for the urban-archaeological Roman centre of Fano town. In this context, the proposed methodology is aimed to build up an integrated and multipurpose system. The starting point is data collection by means of archival (for documentation purposes) and highresolution survey techniques (for metrical purposes); afterwards, a conceptual data model organizes archaeological data and realizes an easily updating solution that automatically produce short reports to share with the users. The open source QGIS is used to develop the spatial extension with the aim to manage 2D/3D numerical cartography and detailed 3D model (using open tools such as Virtual Terrain and Enviro). The final geo-database contains all the useful information to support urban planners decision-making. The ability to structure data in a maintainable way helps to ensure cross-disciplinary cooperation in the management and protection of heritage resources. Lastly, an Augmented Reality (AR) experience is carried out. Linked directly to the geo-database, AR allows a quick real time visualization of GIS layers and 3D models, showing the way forward smart tourism and virtual museum applications. This technology is needful when the archaeological findings must be conceived due to conservation issues.

Abstract: In this study, we present a medical imaging method to estimate the preterm infant respiratory rate with a non invasive embedded RGB-D sensor. The respiratory rate is derived by measuring morphological chest wall movements with a depth sensor. The performances of our method are evaluated by comparing the values of respiratory rate measurements obtained using our method with those resulting from a standard reference device, used as a benchmark. Experimental results showed that the proposed method can correctly measure the respiratory rate in preterm infants and activates an alarm signal when respiratory rate values go out of the physiological range or when the infant remains stationary for a long time. As future development, the project can be used as multi-purpose non invasive test on movements and their symmetry or on the infants’ ability to correctly inflate.

2015 Embedded Multisensor System for Safe Point-to-Point Navigation of Impaired Users
IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS
Autore/i: Mancini, Adriano; Frontoni, Emanuele; Zingaretti, Primo
Classificazione: 1 Contributo su Rivista
Abstract: New smart objects to improve the quality of life in the ambient assisted living (AAL) scenario are capturing the interest of researchers and companies. In particular, novel assistive technologies are being developed to make accessible street navigation to impaired people. The solution that we propose in this new application domain of intelligent transportation systems is a framework for a safe point-to-point navigation, owing to high-detailed road graphs, including sidewalks, crosswalks, and generic “obstacles.” The system is based on a low-cost modular sensor box (embedded hardware) interfaced with a mobile/phone application that acts as an intelligent navigator. The main novelty is the capability to sense the surrounding area while being able to perform a fast path replanning, owing to a real-time link to a remote server, if an obstacle is detected. The sensing is performed using different sensors, such as ultrasound, lidar, and a 77-GHz mid-range automotive radar (absolutely novel in the AAL context), which are processed and fused in the well-established robot operating system (ROS). We tested the framework by analyzing its performance in two different configurations and environments by using, respectively, a sonar and a laser rangefinder in a building scenario and a radar in an urban environment. Even if in both cases results demonstrated a quite good robustness in the obstacle detection with a quasi-real-time route replanning, we were mainly interested and succeeded in demonstrating the high flexibility and extensibility of our framework.

Abstract: The main goal of the SIT-REM project is the design and the development of an interoperable web-GIS environment for the information retrieval and data editing/updating of the geobotanical and wildlife map of Marche Region. The vegetation, plant landscape and faunistic analysis allow the realization of a regional information system for wildlife-geobotanical data. A main characteristic of the SIT-REM is its flexibility and interoperability, in particular, its ability to be easily updated with the insertion of new types of environmental, faunal or socio-economic data and to generate analyses at any geographical (from regional to local) or quantitative level of detail. Different query levels obtain the latter: spatial queries, hybrid query builder and WMSs usable by means of a GIS. SIT-REM has been available online for more than a year and its use over this period has produced extensive data about users' experiences.. © 2014 by the authors; licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland

Abstract: In the last years the Model Based Design for Unmanned Systems aided the safe and rational release of applications running on unmanned systems. In particular in this paper we focus on a hybrid methodology that merges Software in the Loop (SIL) and Model in the Loop (MIL) strategies for cooperative tasks performed by aerial and ground autonomous vehicles. The proposed work flow covers the design and testing of Ground Control Station (GCS) modelled by a finite state machine, the design and testing of navigation code running on UAV and UGV and the testing of cooperative missions. The work-flow is based on a realistic 3D physical simulator interfaced with Matlab-Simulink-Stafeflow. The proposed approach has been successfully tested and evaluated allowing to release runnable and safe code on real targets.

Abstract: In this paper a solution to UAV reduced endurance and autonomous flight is proposed. With a complete on-board solution, based on artificial vision, the developed system is able to autonomously take off, navigate and land, recharging its battery by using a dedicated landing platform, both in indoor and outdoor scenarios. The landing platform includes a passive centering system to correct the landing error of the UAV, with a novel design wich reduce cost and increase the safety (thanks to small and isolated electrical contacts) without invasive hardware changes on the drone. The developed vision algorithm provides a fast and accurate measurement of UAV position with respect to the landing platform using a visual target, but at the same time it is able to automatically switch to an estimation of position that is independent from the visual target. This aspect is used during navigation or when the tracking of the target fails, ensuring a continuous position measurement feed to the controllers. The developed control system manages all the different phases of a mission (motor turning on/off, take off, navigation, landing, ... ) with low control error, ensuring a landing over the landing platform with an error that is lower than 5cm for both x and y axis. The developed software in ROS environment is modular and provides input/output interfaces to receive command, or send data.

Classificazione: 4 Contributo in Atti di Convegno (Proceeding)
Abstract: The research topic was to test different feature extraction methods to localize road pavement cracks useful to construct a spatial database for the pavement distress monitoring. Several images were acquired by means of a line scan camera that assembled in a Mobile Mapping System (MMS) allows tracking directly the position of the images by a GPS-INS system. Following an automatic digital image processing was performed by means of several algorithms based on different approaches (edge detection and fuzzy set theory). The detected cracks were described with some parameters in relation to some shape characteristics (dimension, typology, direction), which are necessary to recognize the gravity of the road pavement conditions. The edge detection techniques tested in this research allowed identifying fatigue cracking or alligator cracking and also thin linear cracks in images with strong radiometric jumps by applying filters, gradient functions and morphological operators. The snake approach was one of them, in particular the type called Gradient Vector Flow (GVF). Another approach was based on the fuzzy theory. The advantage of this method is that the pixels, necessary to identify the cracks in road pavement, are darker than their surroundings in an image. The last stage was the pavement distress spatial database collection. The Mobile Mapping System (MMS) has allowed localizing the raster data and consequently the vector features of the detected cracks, associating into the table their attributes too. The proposed approaches allow to automatically localize and classify the kind of road pavement crack.

Classificazione: 1 Contributo su Rivista
Abstract: Indoor localization of mobile agents using wireless technologies is becoming very important in military and civil applications. This paper introduces an approach for the indoor localization of a mini UAV based on Ultra-WideBand technology, low cost IMU and vision based sensors. In this work an Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) is introduced as a possible technique to improve the localization. The proposed approach allows to use a low-cost Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) in the prediction step and the integration of vision-odometry for the detection of markers nearness the touchdown area. The ranging measurements allow to reduce the errors of inertial sensors due to the limited performance of accelerometers and gyros. The obtained results show that an accuracy of 10 cm can be achieved.

Abstract: Traditionally, remote sensing has employed pixel-based classification techniques to deal with Land Use/Land Cover (LULC) studies. Generally, pixel-based approaches have been proven to work well with low spatial resolution imagery (e.g., Landsat or System Pour L’Observation de la Terre (SPOT) sensors). Now, however, commercially available high spatial resolution images (e.g., aerial Leica ADS40 and Vexcel UltraCam sensors, and satellite IKONOS, Quickbird, GeoEye and WorldView sensors) can be problematic for pixel-based analysis due to their tendency to oversample the scene. This is driving research towards object-based approaches. The paper proposes a hybrid classification method with the aim of incorporating the advantages of supervised pixel-based classification into object-based approaches. The method has been developed for medium scale (1:10.000) LULC mapping using ADS40 imagery with 1 m Ground Sampling Distance (GSD). First, spatial information is incorporated into a pixel-based classification (AdaBoost classifier) by means of additional texture features (Haralick, Gabor, Law features), which can be selected “ad hoc” according to optimal training samples (“Relief-F” approach, Mahalanobis distances). Then a rule-based approach sorts segmented regions into thematic CORINE Land Cover (CLC) classes in terms of membership class percentages (a modified Winner-Takes-All approach) and shape parameters. Finally, ancillary data (roads, rivers, etc.) are exploited to increase classification accuracy. The experimental results show that the proposed hybrid approach allows the extraction of more LULC classes than conventional pixel-based methods, while improving classification accuracy considerably. A second contribution of this paper is the assessment of classification reliability by implementing a stability map, in addition to confusion matrixes.

Abstract: Indoor localization of mobile agents using wireless technologies is becoming very important in military and civil applications. This paper introduces an approach for the indoor localization of a mini UAV based on Ultra-WideBand technology, low cost IMU and vision based sensors. In this work an Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) is introduced as a possible technique to improve the localization. The proposed approach allows to use a low-cost Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) in the prediction step and the integration of vision-odometry for the detection of markers nearness the touchdown area. The ranging measurements allow to reduce the error of inertial measurement due to the limited performance of accelerometers and gyros. The obtained results show that an accuracy of 10 cm can be achieved.

Abstract: The combination of photogrammetric aerial and terrestrial recording methods can provide new opportunities for photogrammetric applications. A UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), in our case a helicopter system, can cover both the aerial and quasi-terrestrial image acquisition methods. A UAV can be equipped with an on-board high resolution camera and a priori knowledge of the operating area where to perform photogrammetric tasks. In this general scenario our paper proposes vision-based techniques for localizing a UAV. Only natural landmarks provided by a feature tracking algorithm will be considered, without the help of visual beacons or landmarks with known positions. The novel idea is to perform global localization, position tracking and localization failure recovery (kidnapping) based only on visual matching between current view and available georeferenced satellite images. The matching is based on SIFT features and the system estimates the position of the UAV and its altitude on the base of the reference image. The vision system replaces the GPS signal combining position information from visual odometry and georeferenced imagery. Georeferenced satellite or aerial images must be available on-board beforehand or downloaded during the flight. The growing availability, of high resolution satellite images (e.g., provided by Google Earth or other local information sources) makes this topic very interesting and timely. Experiments with both synthetic (i.e., taken from satellites or datasets and pre elaborated) and real world images have been performed to test the accuracy and the robustness of our method. Results show sufficient performance if compared with common GPS systems and give a good performance also in the altitude estimation, even if in this last case there are only preliminary results.

Abstract: Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and in particular quad-rotors are gaining an increasing interest owing to their flexibility and versatility. Today the challenge is to integrate these versatile platforms in a wide fleet in order to perform cooperative tasks as surveillance, search & rescue, inspection. The coalition formation problem is a pre-condition for cooperative missions. This problem can be solved with different methodologies from biologically-inspired algorithms to parasocial consensus sampling ones. In this paper a new framework for simulation of unmanned vehicles in cooperative scenarios is first presented. Then a novel method that exploits the benefits of Model Predictive Control (MPC) for a coalition formation problem (leader-follower) is introduced. The obtained results evidence the good performance of MPC to solve the problem of coalition formation for unmanned aerial vehicles finding the optimal solution taking into account different kind of constraints. The developed framework allows also to easily change from simulated agent to real one.
