Organized by the Università di Trento, MUSE - Museo delle Scienze, Fondazione Edmund Mach, and Fondazione Bruno Kessler, the Researchers Night took place on September 27th in Trento.

During the event, the E-FLY project was presented by Daniele Pizzolli from FBK, in several face-to-face meetings to the general public, with the main focus to share the specific implementation of the “cloud” and “fog” computing paradigm that is being done in E-FLY.

Find attached the program of the event where E-FLY is featured in Italian, or take a look at the translation done by our team for our English-speaking audience:

Monitoring from the clouds, to the Fog

Analyze drone images in real-time

The E-FLY project, developed by a European consortium where FBK is participating, uses the images taken by drones to monitor the territory and infrastructures. In particular, E-FLY observes the gas pipelines and analyzes the images collected for prevention and safety in real time. This project is an example of Fog Computing (from the English "fog"), a system that provides for the geographical distribution of data processing and storage.

Even if you've never heard of fog, you're probably already using it in some form. Your phone, your voice assistant, the calorie counter in your apartment building, your car ... they generate, collect and transmit data.

But how do these systems actually work? Let's try to dissipate a bit of fog together.
