From 24 to 26 October 2017, Italy will host the annual MegaM @ Rt2 plenary meeting to be held in Rome at the Best Western Plus Universo Hotel.
MegaM @ Rt2 is a project funded by the Electronic Component Systems for the European Leadership Joint Undertaking (ECSEL-JU) under the grant agreement n. 737494. This community project receives the support of the research and innovation program of the European Union Horizon 2020 and the 7 participating countries.
MegaM @ Rt2 studies the continuous development and runtime validation of scalable models of complex systems. This will improve the productivity, quality and predictability of large and complex industrial systems and strengthen European scientific and technological leadership in the design of complex systems.
More than 50 representatives of the 27 companies and university partners of the project will be present at the event, from the 7 countries involved: Sweden, France, Spain, Italy, Finland and the Czech Republic.
The logistics of the event is organized by one of the Italian partners: RoTechnology srl, an innovative technological SME with offices in Rome, Milan and Reggio Calabria.
The Research and Development area of RoTechnology achieved great success, last December 30th 2018, with the field installation of the prototype of the new DAMON (DAta MOnitoring sensors Network).
The goal is to create a network of interconnected sensors capable of collecting, saving and managing large amounts of data; Lorenzo Bortoloni was responsible for the programming, implementation and integration of the various components. Thus a system was born that records meteorological parameters (temperature, humidity, pressure and brightness), and environmental parameters (soil moisture, characteristics of the earth and pH), based on a board with an ARM architecture, equipped with RTC for a optimized and efficient battery management; a further plus point is the possibility of powering the sensor thanks to the presence of a solar panel, thus making it autonomous, economical and ecological. The software expands the potential of PiJuice, the British project that saw the light thanks to the funding received on the Kickstarter platform in early 2015
The RoTechnology prototype, installed in an olive grove, aims to collect data for monitoring the most common pest infestations. However, this is not the only application for such a versatile and innovative project: reachable remotely using high-speed 3G and 4G networks, and operating in all weather conditions, the software has the ability to collect environmental parameters of any kind and manage them in a customized way. Other planned applications include monitoring air quality in warehouses, motion detection, recognition, identification and detection of objects through specific open-source software.
The data collected is saved in the cloud, but the customization options also include the possibility for the user to set the storage mode independently; all the data collected, recorded in a database, can also be viewed in the form of a graph.
In the wake of the success achieved with the installation in the field, the RoTechnology team will soon implement new and exciting features for DAMON; the versatility of this promising project is just one of the many qualities that we will soon be able to admire.
On June 4, RoTechnology participated in the workgroup of the Lombard Cluster for Mobility (CLM), held at the CSMT – Multisectoral and Technological Services Center of Brescia, also open to the participation of other clusters and non-associated companies. A total of 22 companies participated, 2 universities, 1 research center and 3 Lombard clusters (Mobility, Aerospace, Smart Cities and Communites), in addition to the institutional presence of the Province of Brescia.
The meeting, entitled “On board sensors and connected vehicles”, touched on the themes of autonomous driving (from the analysis of the vehicle through the monitoring of the driver status, to the data and image processing), of intelligent mobility (long connectivity radius, infrastructures for data transmission) and archiving and analysis of Big Data with the “Data Lake” method.
The event was a fruitful moment of sharing projects and perspectives of individual institutions and highlighted the possibility of intersectoral collaborations between Aerospace and Automotive, which share some technological scenarios, including that of reducing emissions, electric power, and sensors and applications deriving from Earth observation.

RoTechnology participated on the 28th of September at the Career Day, a day to present the projects carried out by the participants in the HR Academy and New Comunication master, organized by Elis.
During the event innovative work projects were presented with the partner companies of the edition: Ferrovie dello Stato, Campari, Terna, Snam, Generali, Enel, Eni, Rai Ray, Italtel, Iren and Cattolica Assicurazione.
From 2 to 4 October, RoTechnology participated in the Megamart2 Plenary Meeting held in Versailles.
The MegaM @ Rt2 project is well defined, the intermediate objectives have been achieved and the integration between partners improves with each meeting.
As always happens in the Megamart plenary, a hackathon has been organized for the benefit of the Use Case Providers which has allowed to increase the technical skills of the demonstrators and create a collaborative atmosphere among all the partners.
The review team was able to evaluate the good quality of the results linked to the integration of the tools that will constitute the Mega-modeling framework.
RoTechnology is very satisfied with the work carried out also in line with the fundamental objectives of the Project and its future developments.
Ro Technology participated in the Cyber Security and Digital Economy Forum: Challenges, Threats and Opportunities from Cyberspace organized by the Italian Embassy in London and the Italian Trade Agency (ICE) in collaboration with the Center for Cyber Security and International Relations Studies of the University of Florence.
