Sensor electronics and environmental acoustics

Scope and purpose

The Sensor electronics lab of Roma ARTOV is dedicated to the development of devices, electronic technologies and their integration with the mechanics, in order to support the experimental activities carried out in the Institute. The skills acquired in the use of finite element simulation (FEM) tools have allowed the optimization of the systems designed using CAD / CAM tools. The group is active in a line of research devoted to the study and preparation of materials, to the prototyping of physical and chemical sensors and their complete characterization, useful for industrial production processes. It is also a brilliant R&D activity for Small and Medium Enterprises(SICA, AEROSEKUR, TELESPAZIO, INTERCOM, EMEC, TERRSAFE), relating to the development of sensors in the fields of the environment, medicine (development of systems to diagnose ear diseases) and security (development of vibration monitoring systems in the project PON-PRISMA).
The Sensor electronics lab is also active in environmental acoustical monitoring, in particular is focused on the noise of new vertical axis wind turbine design (in the context of PON Gelmincal project) and on the environmental impact of ultrasound and infrasound in industrial plants.
