Objective of the project

The project implements a set of virtual sensors to gather data collected from several survey points, obtained both with RFID technology and with monitoring networks. The objective is to put in contact each single element or sector of a determined green area (e.g. a plant, turf, etc.) with the subsystems related to its management and to a proper fruition of it from the users.

The consortium, formed by Giardineria Italiana (Lead Partner), Tesecom, SASE Idraulica, in cooperation with CREA – Reasearch Institute for Agriculture and Analysis of the Agrarian Economy, and CNR IBE – Institute for the Bioeconomy, cooperates to provide targeted interventions for a better green and economic sustainability and for a more aware use of green resources. The objective is sought through advanced procedures of data analysis (environmental, biometrics, bio-economical etc.) and through monitoring networks on different spatial scales.
