SISTEMA S.r.l. (
Contact: Guido Gentile

Sistema provides software solutions for transport systems and info mobility engineering through the development of software products and services based on innovative methodological approaches and technologies.

The company aims at positioning itself on the national and international Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) market. It operates in the field of transportation system analysis, management and planning. Particular emphasis is placed on real-time applications thanks to quantitative tools provided by mathematical models for traffic simulation and the study of people/goods displacement. These models are able to reproduce the behavior of users and the functioning of road networks.

Contact: Massimo Tronci

Aicomply is developing and delivering innovative compliance management services. In order to do so the company has moved from a project to an integrated approach based on multi-normative technology platforms. The purpose of the service is to contribute to the development of compliance & risk management systems. The technological and methodological services being developed will be able to determine the risk level organisations are exposed to by analysing processes, controls and action plans.

Contact: Fabio Babiloni

This spin off uses technology developed by research conducted on the quantification of brain activity and other physiological signals emited while watching advertisements.
The technology:

  • provides an innovative, effective, non-invasive answer to the questions that have arisen during studies on the effectiveness of advertising
  • is extremely useful during the development phase of commercials
  • helps monitor mnemonic/emotional effectiveness using scientific indicators

NHAZCA S.r.l. (
Contact: Francesca Bozzano

Nhazca identifies, evaluates, and develops operating methods and tools for monitoring dangerous natural events. The company uses terrestrial radar interferometry, among other techniques, to monitor the deformation of slopes, volcanoes, glaciers and man-made constructions such as dams, bridges, and buildings of historical and architectural importance. Monitoring/analysis also uses innovative data processing software and numerical event-simulation models.

Contact: Angelo Chianese

Opt Sensor focuses on the production and commercialisation of optoelectronic measuring instruments for the environmental industry. Of particularly interest is a new measuring device for monitoring PM10-PM2, 5 particulate. This device will be completely automated. Using this technology the company will be able to carry out remote monitoring activities. This will become more common as measurements can now be recorded and transmitted at long distances by electronic means. The company will produce and sell tools for the detection and quantification of solid particles suspended in liquid or gas. These tools have already been developed and patented by the founding members of the company all of whom are university researchers.

3FASE s.r.l. (
Contact: Claudio Alimonti

The core business idea is the development of alternative solutions (including customer services) in the oil and gas sector. The technology offered is characterised by the flexibility of implementation, adaptability to specific field conditions, and a competitive price. The direct production of hardware components is not the objective of the initiative which is focused instead on the design of:

  • advanced combinations of process components capable of generating appropriate fluid-dynamic characteristics
  • ad hoc sensors and process and control systems run by  specific software based on Sapienza's "Determination Process of the Flow of Multiphase Fluid Mixtures" patent (IT1333990)

ACTOR s.r.l.
Contact: Gianni di Pillo

Actor provides a response to the programming, management and control needs of organisations and companies. These needs arise from the management of departments/companies involved in the execution of short and medium term business operations.

A complementary activity is the creation of didactic modules, based on data sets and real application cases for training within national and international companies, universities and research centres. By leveraging knowledge of "optimisation methods" and "control science" based on the team's R&D skills Actor focuses on building strong mathematical models in order to integrate them in application software endowed with relevant educational content.

SPIN V s.r.l.
Contact: Di Benedetto

Spin V provides a support service for people navigation and bridges the gap between GIS navigation systems (Geographic Information System) available in the outdoor environment and corresponding indoor solutions.

The company’s solution is based on an interactive application for indoor orientation and navigation. This application:

  • operates through a combination of information about the user's location, preferences and characteristics, environmental structures and the activities that take place there
  • will be developed as both a web application and installed directly on user devices. Supported hardware includes smart phones and tablet PCs in order to reach the maximum number of users and provide  improved user interface.

DITS s.r.l.
