RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
We perform R&D activities in collaboration with International Universities and Research Centres in order to provide to our customers the most innovative solutions based on the deployment of latest-generation technologies.
Project: Genova Sicura [POR FESR Liguria 2014-2020 – Asse 1 – Azione 1.2.4]
Duration: 06/2018 – 06/2020
In collaboration with Leonardo SpA, Darts takes part to the Genova Sicura project – cofinanced by Filse’s POR, Regional Operational Program – making a contribution by sharing its competences about the use of ICT technologies in the Territory security field. The project aims at the creation of a prototype Security Center to support people’s safety and protection in the city, by building a defense tool against terroristic and/or criminal acts and extreme hydrogeological weather events. The platform integrates different systems and specialized technologies in order to provide advanced services in the environmental monitoring field as well as in the Town/Region resilience management.
DARTS’ scope in the project is to make its resilience and safety competences available, applying ICT technologies to deal with natural disasters (brought upon everyone by climate change or, in general, by extreme weather events).
Project: Knowledge Alliance for Advanced Urbanism – KAAU [Erasmus+ Programme – Key Action 2]
Duration: 11/2015 – 06/2018
As a member of KAAU project, co-financed by Erasmus programme and European Union in collaboration with high education qualified institutes and international companies, Darts provides experiences and competences in the use of ICT for the development of Advanced Urbanism.
Within this project Darts conducts studies and researches focusing on the identification of the efficient approaches in advanced design of public spaces and the use of ICT to modernize citizen’s services. Darts focuses on two main subjects:
1. Innovation of cultural tourism services to upgrade outdoor and indoor environments;2. Smart design of the resilient cities for a better climate change adaptation and resilience of the urban areas affected by natural disasters and other intense weather events.
Project: TCUBE – Trasporti, Territorio e Turismo [Par Fas 2007-2013 – Progetto 4]
Duration: 04/2014 – 04/2016
Co-funded by the PAR-FAS Liguria 2007-2013 program, the aim of the TCUBE project was to study, realize and test an innovative platform of mobile information within the municipality of Genoa in order to spread personalized information about the mobility of users, including weather alerts in urban areas.
Within the TCUBE project, the role of Darts was to study the implementation of the Smart Rainfall System (innovative technology developed and patented by Darts and the University of Genoa, for monitoring rainfall in real-time and managing hydrogeological risk) in the info-mobility project platform in order to inform citizens and tourists in real-time about current weather conditions in the city centre in case of extreme rainfall.
Project: OCOVA AlpMedNet [ALCOTRA 2007-2013 – Asse 1 – Misura 1.1]
Duration: 01/2013 – 03/2015
The OCOVA AlpMedNet project – co-funded by the ALCOTRA programme 2007-2013 – aimed to create added value for the Alps-Mediterranean region (Hautes-Alpes, Piedmont and Liguria), encouraging the development of innovation, starting from citizens’ relationships and administration up to developers of techno-advanced solutions. The project aimed to promote ICT services to meet the needs of the end user, supporting the development of innovative companies in the project area.
Darts was in charge of the project management of the Ligurian region, supporting the University of Genoa (institutional partner of the project).
We constantly look for new business opportunities and investments on innovative projects focused on ICT solution development to gain access to emerging markets.
Artys – Advanced enviRonmental moniToring and analYsis Systems – is an innovative start-up, also recognized as a spin-off of the University of Genoa, founded in November 2014, by Darts along with some professors and researchers of the University of Genoa – focused on research, design, development and consultancy in environmental monitoring.
Artys develops the Smart Rainfall System – SRS, an innovative decision support solution (DSS) for hydrogeological risk monitoring which, in real time, estimates the intensity and distribution of rainfall and assesses their effect on the territory (floods and landslides) with a time advance useful to activate the emergency and self-protection procedures.
eXplainable Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the so-called “Exponential Technologies“, innovations progressing at an accelerated pace that will have the capability to generate tremendous benefits for individuals and society.
Algorithms and human beings will have to interact by building a relationship based on trust. For this reason it will be crucial that this technology remains accessible and understandable to a human being who can verify its reliability and results.
Darts designs and selects the most innovative explainable AI (XAI) solutions that are able to create “transparent” or “clear box” models in order to mantain a human-centric approach.
We offer the following services: consulting, design and system integration in the ICT field and more precisely on ITS – Intelligent Transportation Systems, BSS – Business Support Systems and New Media.
We provide different engineering services strictly following all phases of the project cycle. Vast professional skills and excellent techno-commercial partnerships are the results of highly qualified working methods that efficiently satisfy and exceed customers’ expectations.
We set up three areas of expertise within different business sectors jointed by the aim of designing and developing technologically advanced solutions, that can help our customers to improve and enhance their business processes and to innovate their ICT systems.
Since 1995 we are a qualified technological partner ready to meet the challenges of the world competitive market.
We design and develop technologically advanced solutions and turnkey projects, based on progressive technologies of superior quality in order to improve business processes and create added value for our customers.
