Presentation of Pervasive Electromagnetics Lab (PDF)

The positive synergy of the classic Electromagnetics with the Materials Science, Computer Science,  Sensors, Medicine, Mechanics and Electronics originates the Pervasive Electromagnetics, a cross-discipline with the potentiality to provide the physical layer of the emerging Internet of Things that enables the Internet to get into the Real World of physical objects.Things equipped with electronic labels, having both identification and sensing capability, could be turned into digital entities readable from remote.
The Radiofrequency Identification (RFID) technology offers the natural substrate to achieve such features, provided that the basic physics governing the sensing and electromagnetic interaction phenomena is fully exploited.
Thanks to multidisciplinary research, the Pervasive Electromagnetics Lab aims to develop new radio devices for short-range sensing, ready to be seamlessly embedded into objects, products, buildings as well as over and even inside the human body with application to Personal Healthcare and Industry 4.0

RADIO6ENSE is the University spinoff of the Pervasive Electromagnetics Lab.

                            RADIOSKIN (Consolidate the Foundations 2015-17)

Skin-mounted electronics is the new frontier for unobtrusive body-centric monitoring systems. It enables to move the electronics and sensors from clothes and personal accessories directly to the human skin for the wireless and continuous assessment of people's health and well-being.


RFIDrone:UAVs with RFID technologies

The combined use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and Radiofrequency Identification (RFID) devices is an emerging topic of the environmental monitoring. We are studying two possible topologies of RFIDrones: the Reader-Drone hosting an RFID reader and interacting with fixed sensors displaced over an infrastructure and the Tag-Drone where a sensor-RFID tag is equipped with flight capability and interacts with a fixed base station for data exchange and assisted localization.

  Wearable, Epidermal and Implantable radio-sensors


This research is expected to produce one of the key technologies to enable the personal E-Health of tomorrow, wherein the person, through his own smartphone, will become the primary hub of data collection about his own body.

              Short-range passive sensing of chemical-physical parameters

We are making progress in the development of chemical-loaded antennas embedding carbon nanotubes and conductive polymers with the aim to remotely detect the presence and the amount of some gas such as ammonia, humidity and ethanol.s

                     Embedded radio-sensors for structural deformations

Thanks to a collaboration with Civil Engineering researchers we are developing strain-gauge like RFID tags useful to be embedded into or over concrete walls, pillars or a around a crack to remotely sense the Health of a Structure. Electromagnetic effort is oriented to govern and shape the antenna backscattering in presence of time-dependent boundary conditions.

                                 RFID Networks and Multi-chip systems

Very recently some experiments put into evidence the possibility to set up a tag to tag communication by exploiting the electromagnetic coupling mechanism among antennas. Theoretical and experimental investigations are under development to understand how fabricate grids of interacting RFID tags according to the paradigm of ubiquitous computing.

             Distributed antenna system over naval and satellite platforms

The concept of distributed antennas is also being applied to the new paradigm of Satellite communication systems. In collaboration with the European Space Agency we are developing simple-shape plug and play antennas provided with tuning capability and suited to be allocated into clusters of any configuration to produce omnidirectional as well directive and tracking patterns.
