Graduation goes virtual under lockdown

Graduation RFID Lab

During corona lockdown in Italy, Parma University has transferred lessons, exams and graduation sessions from school banks to virtual classrooms.

On the 13th of March 2020, Carlotta Buccarella and Tommaso Carmentano were among the first from the department of engineering and architecture to graduate with the virtual handshake. The two students both carried out their thesis within the RFID Lab research activities.

The thesis by Carlotta Buccarella entitled “Internet of Things: bibliographical analysis, sectors of application and market analysis” delivered a structured analysis of key aspects related to the Internet of Things, such as hardware/software components, business models, field of application, market analysis and value as well the role of RFID in IoT.

The title of Tommaso Carmentano’s thesis was “RFID Technology supporting logistics and warehouse management in Teatro Reggio di Parma”. The historical theatre in Parma wanted to improve the traceability of stage components and artist’s clothing. Tommaso carried out a study to engineer an RFID system for the theatre’s warehouse, researching and individualising also the RFID tags to be applied. The results obtained from the tests carried out clearly show how RFID improve the traceability, speeding up the identification and availability of the theatre’s stage components.

RFID Lab congratulates the two new engineers wishing them all the best for the future.
