  • FuorisuoloSmart (finalized)
    • Partners: Florcoop Sanremo and University of Pisa.
      Funding body: Rural development 2014-2020 project of the Liguria region.
      Description: Decision support system for smartphone with automatic lysimeter for water and mineral management of ranunculus soilless culture [Patent pending].

  • COLTIV@MI (finalized)
    • Partners: Jonix Srl (Principal Investigator), Sa.Se. Idraulica Srl, Apteon, Omnia Service Italia Srl, Fortrop, Lami Elettrica, and University of Pisa.
      Funding body: POR FESR 2014-2020 project of the Tuscany region.
      Description: The COLTIV@MI-project is an IoT-based indoor greenhouse monitoring system that can be controlled by the mobile phone of the gardening enthusiasts. It hosts advanced implementation and control systems and the possibility to use assisted growth programs. A dynamic model has been developed that predicts the time-series of crop-growth related parameters given environmental control data. It has been shown that the reciprocal of logistic growth dynamics can be represented by an exact linear dynamic system. [Commercialization pending].
