A group of professionals with different backgrounds, with the skills and the desire to change the experience of those who practice outdoor sports in the mountains.
Motorialab was born in the laboratories of the MPBA group of the ICT center of the Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK) in Trento by a group of people who in the last 6 years have assembled, dismantled and reassembled decision making systems based on space-time big data.
WHAT DID WE ACCOMPLISH?
In just a few years, Motorialab has left its mark in the heart of an internationally recognized territory for its strong connection to the outdoors, sport and technological innovation. Our experience includes research and experimentation projects through the development of sensors, wearables, apps, web services and customized software made for clients like Salewa.
The first product introduced on the market is SAFE, an integrated risk management system for ski area managers. SAFE is changing the approach to rescue services, accelerating the collection and digitization of data and providing real-time monitoring of safety on the ski slopes.
WHERE ARE WE HEADED?
The next challenge is to focus on the development of digital tools that help people prevent critical situations while practicing outdoor sports. Thanks to our position in the world of research (partnership with FBK) we collaborate with several international companies, linked to the sports world, accompanying them in the processes of experimentation, rapid prototyping and implementation of innovative digital solutions.
Work is as important as the pleasure we get from doing it. We are above all people who love to create, learn and grow, gathered around the passion for technology and outdoors, forming a team with ties that transcend the workplace.
Riccardo De Filippi
Motorialab Project coordinator. After his Masters degree in Geoinformatics at the Wageningen University (NL) he managed geo-oriented projects at the Zürich Polytechnic University and then has coordinated the development of WebGIS systems at FBK’s Predictive Models Research Unit for Biomedicine and the Environment (MPBA), supporting the research activities of the group.
Platform front-end Senior developer on the client/web interface side. A previous cooperator with FBK as software developer and manager of the WebGIS systems at FBK’s Predictive Models Research Unit for Biomedicine and the Environment (MPBA).
Graduating at the European Institute of Technology (EIT) he is the backend developer. His daily bread are Django and spatial databases. PostgreSQL + PostGIS his favourites.
Graduated in computer science from the University of Trento, Alessandro is a programmer specialized first in .net languages, such as c # and asp, and then moved on to low-level languages like C ++, from where the passion for Objective-C was born. Approaching the working world, at the FBK research center, thanks to the passion for sensors and precisely for mobile programming, he later accepted the challenge proposed by Motorialab and completed his knowledge in that field with the development of applications on Android devices. Improving his knowledge of this environment by getting interested in the new Swift and Kotlin languages.
Mathematician, he is an expert of predictive methods for the analysis of complex data and has been working for more than 20 years in the biomedical and bioinformatics data. He is a Senior Researcher at FBK, where he directs the Predictive Models Research Unit for Biomedicine and the Environment. He has directed over 50 applied research projects and specialized in the development of open source software platforms which integrate scientific calculations, web/mobile solutions for data collection and visualization and decision-making tools, adopted by several Italian Public Administrations. Wired Italy mag shortlisted him in the list of the 50 scientists and innovators “who are changing the world”.
