MIARIA - Adaptive hydrogeological Monitoring system supporting Alpine Integrated Risk plan

The MIARIA project represents a meeting place between academic research and territorial needs. Purpose of the project is to design and make available new technologies for monitoring the hydrogeological risk as well as develop methodologies to support the integrated risk plan for the alpine environment.

The partners of the project are Politecnico di Milano (Polo Territoriale di Lecco and Fondazione), Regione Lombardia, Provincia di Lecco, Scuola Universitaria Professionale della Svizzera Italiana (SUPSI) and UniversitÓ della Svizzera Italiana (USI).

Within such framework we have designed, developed and deployed new monitoring systems for rockfall and landslide control (rock falling, rock toppling and landslide). Such systems, based on hybrid and wireless sensor network technologies, are able to autonomously operate in hostile environments, harvesting the energy needed to carry out their operations and adapt to the changing environment.

Deployments are active in Italy (Torrioni di Rialba e Premana), Lombardy region,  and Switzerland (Val Canaria), Ticino, to monitor areas at risk and characterized by high impact on nearby critical infrastructures and settlements.
