The Fondazione Cassa di Risparmi di Lucca is Co-funding two Projects Proposed by two Institutes of the National Research Council in Pisa. The first project, MONSTER (Monito-raggio strutturale di edifici storici con tecnologie wireless e strumenti di calcolo innovativi), proposed by the Institute of Information Science and Technologies (ISTI), will monitor the Bell Tower of the San Frediano Basilica in Lucca through a non-invasive wireless sensor network (WSN). The sensors will collect data relevant to the atmospheric conditions and the stresses the tower is subjected to. The goal is a continuous, cheap and non-invasive monitoring of an historic heritage, in order to have the possibility to immediately intervene when structural problems are detected.The second project, Well Being @ Lucca (WB@ Lucca), proposed by the Institute of Informatics and Telematics (IIT), is addressed to elderly people; some parameters related to their health and the quality of their sleeping will be monitored. They will also be provided with a tool to stimulate their domestic physical activity and their smart phone will be used to increase their social contacts.
