Abstract

Today a large amount of services are based on location. For instance, the most known service is certainly the navigator system that supports the user in reaching a destination for which the route is unknown. The technological progress has allowed everyone to have in the palm of hand a personal smart device and even if these devices were born to make calls, nowadays they include a rich amount of services. Some of these solutions help people to know what is around their location: e.g. stores, advertisements, events, or public places. The location services are becoming essential in people life and especially in the working context. Every day, new applications and new technologies become part of our life. The earthquake of L’Aquila, which occurred on the 6th of April 2009, has been a catastrophic event for both the city and the University of L’Aquila. Nevertheless, the disaster has been transformed in an opportunity to revitalize the area, with important benefits for the national and international scientific community to experience the effectiveness of new systems and technologies, and consequently to base, on these results, new developments in several different fields. In this context INCIPICT project is born. This project aims to create services, that are addressed towards the idea of Smart-City. INCIPICT focusses mainly to design and implement solutions in favour of: • Structural Health Monitoring; • Building Automation/Energy Efficiency; • Exploitation of Cultural Heritage. This dissertation explains the work that has been done throughout Ph.D. years. Every developed service is part of the INCIPICT project and it aims to achieve a specific goal of the project. In addition, the study has focused on location-based services, analysing the location methodologies and technologies, in particular the location through GNSS, RFID and Bluetooth Low Energy has been examined. Chapter 3 illustrates the design of two projects in Smart-City context. In the 4th chapter a project on the Cultural Heritage is exhibited. In the end, Chapter 5 is focused on the Stuctural Health Monitoring.
