Measurement science and sensing technologies:
the backbone underlying Industry 4.0

Nicola Paone - Università Politecnica delle Marche, Italy
Paolo Castellini - Università Politecnica delle Marche, Italy

paone Nicola Paone graduated in 1986 in Mechanical Engineering, then he was a researcher at Von Karman Institute in Brissels in 1986-87 and a research engineer at Centro Ricerche FIAT in Turin in 1988.
In 1990he became a researcher at università di Ancona, in 1992 associate professor at Univ. of L’Aquila and since 1993 he returned at Univ. Politecnica delle Marche where he is full professor of Mechanical and Thermal Measurement since 2001.
Since the start of his career his research focused on development and application of non-contact measurement systems, mainly based on electro-optic technologies. His research addressed several application fields, among which quality control and process control in manufacturing plays a relevant role.
His research has been conducted mainly within EU funded projects, either as scientific responsible of a research unit or project coordinator (2 projects).
In particular, in the manufacturing sector, he coordinated the FP6 EU project “MEPOS Optical measurement of position and size of wood panels for intelligent automation of sanding machines” (2004-2006) and the FP7 project “GRACE InteGration of pRocess and quAlity Control using multi-aGent technology” (2010-2013), and is member of the Horizon-2020 project “GO0DMAN aGent Oriented Zero Defect Multi stage mANufacturing” (2016-2019).

castellini Paolo Castellini received the PhD degree in 1996 at University of Padova, Italy.
In 1997, he joined the Mechanical Department of Ancona, as a researcher and in 2011 become Associate Professor at the Department of Industrial Engineering and Mathematical Sciences at the Polytechnic University of Marche, where he teaches Mechanical and Thermal Measurements and Testing.
Prof. Paolo Castellini has more than 24 years activity in the development and application of instrumentation for mechanical measurements in dynamic analysis and vibro-acoustic.
He is part of the executive committee of the "International Conference on Vibration Measurements by Laser Techniques: Advances and Applications", in Ancona, which is organised every two years.
Paolo Castellini was active in several EU funded project, three of which related to manufacturing, quality and process control.
He was the coordinator of a CleanSky EU project and of a European Industrial Doctorate.
His research interests are related to non-contact mechanical measurement techniques, mainly based on laser interferometry, vision and microphone arrays.
He is author of about hundred papers in International reviews and conferences.

Big Data and Industry 4.0: the role of data exploration

Devis Bianchini
University of Brescia, Italy

Management of large volumes of data, collected from modern Cyber Physical Systems, is calling for models, tools and methods for data representation and exploration, in order to capture relevant properties of physical objects, and manage them in the cyber space. In this context, data exploration is assuming an ever-growing importance, being a way users/operators can learn from data by inspecting it according to different perspectives. In this tutorial, we will present the experience gained in industrial projects within the Industry 4.0 context for using big data management methods and technologies in a dynamic context of interconnected systems. In particular, we will rely on: (i) a multi-dimensional model, that is suited for properly providing data organization for exploration; (ii) incremental solutions for data summarization, to face big datadisruptive characteristics (namely, volume and velocity); (iii) a model of relevance, aimed at focusing the attention of the users/operators only on relevant data that are being explored.

bianchini Devis Bianchini is associate professor at Department of Information Engineering, University of Brescia. His main skills concern models and tools for Web Information System (WIS) design, service-oriented architectures, resource discovery enabled through techniques, tools and theoretical foundations of the Semantic Web, methods and techniques for Big Data collection, management and exploration. On these topics, he published more than one hundred papers in reviewed journals and conferences, he has been member of program committee of international conferences and guest editor for international journals. He is co-responsible for the Big&Open Data Innovation Lab at University of Brescia. He coordinates a research unit for the projects: “Smart Manufacturing 2020”, part of National Cluster on Smart Factory; SMART4CPPs (Smart Solutions for Cyber Physical Production Systems), Lombardy Region POR FESR 2014-2020; ODE (Open Data Exploration), in collaboration with Lombardy Region. Recently, he has been involved in national projects on Smart Cities topics, such as Brescia Smart Living project. Since 2016 he is Co-coordinator for Lombardy Region of Vanguard Initiative Digital & Virtual Democase inside the Efficient and Sustainable Manufacturing Pilot Plant.
