The real-time control (RTC) system is a valid and cost-effective solution for urban stormwater management. This paper aims to evaluate the beneficial effect on urban flooding risk mitigation produced by applying RTC techniques to an urban drainage network by considering different control configuration scenarios. To achieve the aim, a distributed re...
Chapter
The growth of data volume collected in urban contexts opens up to their exploitation for improving citizens’ quality-of-life and city management issues, like resource planning (water, electricity), traffic, air and water quality, public policy and public safety services. Moreover, due to the large-scale diffusion of GPS and scanning devices, most o...

The chapter “Nestedness Temperature in the Agent-Artifact Space: Emergence of Hierarchical Order in the 2000-2014 Photonics Techno-Economic Complex System” is available open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.
Chapter
Nowadays, the increasing in the use of Internet of Things (IoT) devices is growing the realization of pervasive Smart Environments (SEs) and Smart Urban Ecosystems, where all the data gathered by the “Things” can be elaborated and used to improve the livability, the safety and the security of the environment, and to make inhabitants lives easier. M...
Article
The ever-increasing spread of Internet of Things (IoT)-based technologies paired with the diffusion of the edge-based computing boosts the development of pervasive cyber ecosystems having the goal of improving the life quality of people and assisting them in daily activities. In this context, cognitive behaviors are purposely required to make such...
Chapter
Smart Cities are smart environments extending over a wide geographical area having the aim of improving the quality of life of the citizens and optimizing the management of city resources. Despite the paramount interest towards these systems, there is a lack of approaches for their design. The Smart Environment Metamodel (SEM) is a framework which...

Large-scale Smart Environments (LSEs) are open and dynamic systems typically extending over a wide area and including a huge number of interacting devices with a heterogeneous nature. Thus, during their deployment scalability and interoperability are key requirements to be definitely taken into account. To these, discovery and reputation assessment...
Article
A Smart City is a cyber-physical system improving urban behavior and capabilities by providing ICT-based functionalities. An infrastructure for Smart City has to be geographically and functionally extensible, as it requires both to grow up with the physical environment and to meet the increasing in needs and demands of city users/inhabitants. In th...
Article
In an urban environment, sewer flooding and combined sewer overflows (CSOs) are a potential risk to human life, economic assets and the environment. To mitigate such phenomena, real time control systems represent a valid and cost-effective solution. This paper proposes an urban drainage network equipped by sensors and a series of electronically mov...
Article
A smart environment is a physical environment enriched with sensing, actuation, communication and computation capabilities aiming at acquiring and exploiting knowledge about the environment so as to adapt itself to its inhabitants’ preferences and requirements. In this domain, there is the need of tools supporting the design and analysis of applica...
