The SIFIS-Home project (Secure Interoperable Full-stack Internet of things for smart Home) aims at providing a secure-by-design and consistent software framework for improving resilience of Interconnected Smart Home Systems at all stack levels.

The project is coordinated by CNR (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche) and the e-Lite group is participating as part of the Department of Control and Computer Engineering.

The Optimus project (OPTIMising the energy USe in cities with smart decision support systems) aims at developing methodologies and technologies for helping cities to make smart energy decisions. The role of the e-Lite group is to define the main IT Architecture of the data collection and processing infrastructure.

The project is coordinated by NTUA (Greece) and is developed in collaboration with the Department of Energy of Politecnico di Torino.

CROSS (Citizen Reinforcing Open Smart Synergies) is a project co-financed by the European Union within the framework of European Programme (CIP Framework Programme for Competitiveness and Innovation), born with the aim and the ambition to create an innovative ecosystem and a new mentality to deal with the challenges and difficulties arising from the economic crisis.

The project is coordinated by Poste Italiane (Italy), and the role of the e-Lite group is to assist Città di Torino in the public outreach and procurement related to the Call for Apps.

National or Regional projects

Il progetto SERICS (Security and Rights In the CyberSpace) è un Partenariato Esteso nell'ambito del PNRR – Missione 4, componente 2 | Linea 7 "Cybersecurity, nuove tecnologie e tutela dei diritti"; le attività di SERICS si svilupperanno su 10 spoke.

Il gruppo e-Lite partecipa attivamente allo Spoke 8: Gestione del rischio e governance (UNIBO) (in particolare al progetto Risk management for future cyber-physical ecosystems (EcoCyber)), ed allo Spoke 7: Sicurezza delle infrastrutture (POLITO) (in particolare al progetto Secure AND Safe infrasTructures fOR cps in the compute continuuM (SANDSTORM))

The project "Batti il cinque" (gimme a high-five) is a national initiative, funded by the Foundation Con i Bambini and involving 47 partners around Italy, clustered in five different regions of activity.

In the region of Torino, the activities are coordinated by Fondazione della Comunità di Mirafiori ONLUS and focus on innovative training for children of primary and middle schools. The role of the e-Lite group is to organize innovative teaching events (for teachers and for children) on the topics of Introduction to coding, Robotics, and Advanced coding.

The project AstiMusei aims at building a modern infrastructure for networking the museums and artistic sites of a local territory. It has been implemented as a pilot project in the city of Asti by Fondazione Palazzo Mazzetti, with a co-funding of Regione Piemonte.

In collaboration with Tonic Minds, Gaidano&Matta,,, elex, with the scientific coordination of Politecnico di Torino.

The Applus.énergie project aims at defining an energy monitoring architecture suitable for public buildings (schools, offices, etc), based on open source solutions and off the shelf components. The methodology is based on a living labs approach, where users of the buildings are involved in the energy monitoring data and their behavior is influenced by energy feedback.

The project is funded by Regione Valle d'Aosta under the Alcotra programme, and will be applied to a building by Politecnico di Torino (Sede "Mirafiori") and one building in Verrès (AO), hosting Politecnico di Torino and ISITP school. Project coordinated by Proxima Centauri.
