Since its very beginning, Aitek participates in national and European research projects


The goal of this project is the creation of a cognitive node for the processing of heterogeneous data, providing native support for the use of advanced Artificial Intelligence techniques. In particular, Aitek coordinates a use case together with the University of L’Aquila. This use case is aimed at developing an intelligent interactive totem capable of collecting local information and consequently adapting the information content shown.

CATVISIoN (Critical Asset Thread-detection using VISible and INfrared spectra)

This project, led by Aitek, is focused on the definition of an innovative video monitoring system to be used to protect critical infrastructures by automatically detecting possible terroristic attacks. Such system is based on a multispectral vision technology (visible and infrared) and on advance AI based algorithms to detect and classify targets.

Research Programme: Start 4.0 Competence Center (CDC-Start4.0)

Duration: 12 months (01/06/2020 – 31/05/2021)


The goal of this project led by VTT (Finland) and NXP (The Netherlands/Germany), is to develop next generation smart perception sensors and enhance the distributed intelligence paradigm to build versatile, secure, reliable, and proactive human monitoring solutions for the health, wellbeing, and automotive domains. Aitek will work on the definition of innovative Driver Monitoring System (DMS) based on video processing.

Duration: 36 months (01/05/2020 – 30/04/2023)


STEP – SmarT Education Platform

The project aims to create an innovative training system based on augmented and virtual reality applicable in heterogeneous professional context. Such system will be a multi-channel and multi-platform system usable according to the SaaS – Software as a Service paradigm. Aitek will deal with the Artificial Intelligence ​​components used both in the realization of the simulated scenario and in the evaluation of the learner.

Research Programme: Ministry of Economic Development, Italy

Duration: 36 months (01/01/2020 – 31/12/2022)

TRUSTONOMY (Building Acceptance and Trust in Autonomous Mobility)

Study and validation of enabling technologies for the construction of semi-autonomous vehicles, in order to guarantee their safety, trust and acceptance by. In particular, the role of Aitek consists in the development of data processing solutions (in particular audio and video) based on Artificial Intelligence in order to monitor the status of the driver, particularly in potentially dangerous scenarios during the transition between autonomous and manual driving modes.

Research Programme: H2020-MG-2018-TwoStages

Duration: 36 months (01/05/2019 – 30/04/2022)


COMP4DRONES (Framework of Key Enabling Technologies for Safe and Autonomous Drones)

Research project with the aim of providing a framework of key enabling technologies for safe and autonomous drones. It brings to bear a holistically designed ecosystem from application to electronic components, realized as a tightly integrated multi-vendor and compositional UAV embedded architecture solution and a tool chain complementing the compositional architecture principles. Aitek provides its video processing capabilities in an applicative case study about smart agriculture.

Research Programme: ECSEL-2018-2 – RIA

Duration: 36 months (01/10/2019 – 30/09/2022)


FITOPTIVIS (From the cloud to the edge – smart IntegraTion and OPtimisation Technologies for highly efficient Image and VIdeo processing Systems)

Development of an integral approach for smart integration of image- and video-processing pipelines for CPS, with low power and high performance constraints. Aitek is currently leading a use case focused on the definition and deployment of a distributed monitoring system (including also drones) for critical infrastructure. This system will be applied and demonstrated in safety and security control in a water supply system.

Research Programme: ECSEL-2017-2 – RIA

Duration: 36 months (01/06/2018 – 31/05/2021)


PRYSTINE (Programmable Systems for Intelligence in Automobiles)

Definition and implementation of a data fusion platform for monitoring and control and securing semi-autonomous vehicles. In particular, Aitek is involved in a use case related to the monitoring of the driver of a semi-autonomous vehicle through AI approaches applied to the processing of images acquired on board.

Research Programme: ECSEL-2017-2 – RIA

Duration: 36 months (01/05/2018 – 30/04/2021)
