Progetta il tuo Futuro

5000 ragazzi hanno affollato l’Aula Magna, i laboratori e le aule delle facoltà dell’Università Politecnica delle Marche, arrivati da tutta la regione ma anche da Emilia Romagna, Abruzzo e Puglia, per raccogliere informazioni nella settimana di orientamento “Progetta il tuo futuro” dal 2 al 9 febbraio. Di questi 800 ragazzi hanno effettuato il test delle conoscenze.

Il Vrai team ha partecipato all'iniziativa mostrando un esempio di lezione universitaria di Fondamenti di Informatica ed i tanti nessi tra informatica e Ingegneria, Agraria, Scienze, Medicina e Economia.

PhD Thesis

Ph.D. Candidate Roberto Pierdicca reached the first milestone of his studies with his thesis "Senseable Spaces: from a theoretical perspective to the application in augmented environments".

The summary of the abstract:
Given the tremendous growth of ubiquitous services in our daily lives, during the last few decades we have witnessed a definitive change in the way users' experience their surroundings.At the current state of art, devices are able to sense the environment and users’ location, enabling them to experience improved digital services, creating synergistic loop between the use of the technology, and the use of the space itself. We coined the term Senseable Space, to define the kinds of spaces able to provide users with contextual services, to measure and analyse their dynamics and to react accordingly, in a seamless exchange of information. Following the paradigm of Senseable Spaces as the main thread, we selected a set of experiences carried out in different fields; central to this investigation there is of course the user, placed in the dual roles of end-user and manager. The main contribution of this thesis lies in the definition of this new paradigm, realized in the following domains: Cultural Heritage, Public Open Spaces, Geosciences and Retail. For the Cultural Heritage panorama, different pilot projects have been constructed from creating museum based installations to developing mobile applications for archaeological settings. Dealing with urban areas, app-based services are designed to facilitate the route finding in a urban park and to provide contextual information in a city festival. We also outlined a novel application to facilitate the on-site inspection by risk managers thanks to the use of Augmented Reality services. Finally, a robust indoor localization system has been developed, designed to ease customer profiling in the retail sector. The thesis also demonstrates how Space Sensing and Geomatics are complementary to one another, given the assumption that the branches of Geomatics cover all the different scales of data collection, whilst Space Sensing gives one the possibility to provide the services at the correct location, at the correct time.

DUCALE 3.0 - La nuova app per la Galleria Nazionale delle Marche

It is available on the stores DUCALE, the new app developed by UNIVPM, in cooperation with DMPConcept and Studio 48H, for the "Galleria Nazionale delle Marche di Urbino".

The application allows to discover the masterpeaces preserved into the museums thanks to the Augmented Reality and HD funtions. It also allows to navigate the gallery with a virtual tour.

Below are listed some press article about this new app:
