DII, Seconda Università di Napoli, Italy


The Department of Ingegneria dell’ Informazione - Seconda Università di Napoli (DII-SUN) has been established in 1996. DII-SUN has a faculty of 11 full professors, 9 associate professors, 6 researchers and 11 employed Phd students, is located in Aversa (CE) – Italy. The research activities of the department, the skills and the competencies are those of the following research groups: Automatic Control, Applied Electromagnetism, Computer Science, Electrotechnics, Optoelectronics, Physics, Power Electronics and Electrical Power Systems, Electronics, Telecommunication. The research activity field of interest are described below.

The SUN group has established experience in various research field of interest, such as: sensor design and smart actuator modeling and control; identification and robust control of flexible structures, control of robot manipulators in interaction with the environment, motion capture of human subjects and representation of natural motion, fuzzy modeling and identification of nonlinear systems, e.g. magnetoelastic hysteretic systems and water resource systems.
Such experience is proved by several publications in qualified journals and conference proceedings and by the participation in several research projects. SUN has been involved in FP5 MESA , FP6 MESEMA and FP6 MOET in Aerospace and Aeronautic thematic area. SUN is also the nationals representative of the FIDES project (Optical fibres for new challenges facing the information society) funded within COST program. SUN has developed specific algorithms for 3-D manipulation of human movement sequences acquired by optical motion capture within the National Research Council project “Development of advanced graphic digital technologies” funded under FESR program.
