ABSTRACT

Smart Sensors and Distributed Monitoring Systems have rapidly become key tools for the protection of people against both unintended hazards (i.e., the safety) and deliberate threats (i.e., the security), within several application scenarios.
In a wide range of application scenarios, in particular within the Smart Industry context, but also in frameworks like Smart Cities, Smart Agriculture or Healthcare, intelligent measurement systems allow the real-time collection of a large quantity of data, integrating a wide range of different sensing devices, thus measuring a plethora of different physical, chemical and biological parameters.
All the sub-units composing intelligent distributed monitoring systems, i.e., sensors, data acquisition, processing and transmission platforms, are then required to satisfy strict requirements in terms of data protection, accuracy, reliability and availability when targeting at the safeguard of citizens, places or any kind of process and activity.
Smart Sensors and Distributed Monitoring Systems for safety and security include then a wide range of different data acquisition platforms, including mobile devices unmanned vehicles, environmental monitoring tools, anti-intrusion systems and any other kind of technological infrastructure whose task is to detect the possible occurrence of events that may threat in some way safety and security in any kind of environment, from the industrial to the urban one, including the homes and the private buildings.

ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS

Alessandro Pozzebon received the MSc in information engineering, with a focus on the radio frequency identification (RFID) technology applied to cultural heritage, and the PhD from the University of Siena, Siena, Italy, in 2006 and 2012, respectively. His PhD thesis was on the use of RFID technology for environmental monitoring of coastal erosion phenomena. He is currently an Assistant Professor with the Department of Information Engineering and Mathematics, University of Siena, where he teaches in the Laboratory of Internet of Things.
His main research interests include the development of applications based on Low-Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN), Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), and RFID technologies in several different application fields, from healthcare to cultural heritage and environmental monitoring.


Ada Fort (S’92-M’94) received the Laurea degree in electronic engineering, in 1989 and the Ph.D. Degree in nondestructive testing in 1992, both from the University of Florence, Italy. She is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Information Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, University of Siena, Italy.
Her interests concern the development of measurement systems based on chemical and ultrasonic sensors and the development of automatic fault diagnosis systems. Recently, she has been involved in the study of random number generators based on chaotic maps.


Marco Mugnaini received the Laurea degree in electronic engineering and the Ph.D. degree in reliability, availability, and logistics from the University of Florence, Florence, Italy, in 1999 and 2003, respectively.
Since 2003, he has been a Product Safety Engineer with General Electric Oil and Gas business, Florence, where he got his green belt certification. Since 2005, he has been an Assistant Professor with the Department of Information Engineering, University of Siena, Siena, Italy. His current interests include the development of measurement systems based on chemical sensors.


Enza Panzardireceived the master’s degree in electronics and communication engineering and the Ph.D. degree in information engineering and science from the University of Siena, Siena, Italy, in 2015 and 2019, respectively.,She is currently a Research Associate with the Electronics and Electronics Measurement Research Group, University of Siena. Her current research interests include electronic circuits and systems for industrial applications and chemical-sensor-based measurement systems.
