    • A.K.A.NOAH PoliTo - Also Known As Noah : The A.K.A.Noah team, Also known as Noah, was officially born at the start of the a.y 2019/2020 with the aim of projecting a system installed on a boat to collect rubbish on the Po river and to monitorate the health of the river ecosystem sampling in a traditional way (with chemical analysis in laboratory) and in a new way: programming a Raspberry Pi connected to specific sensors. In this last way the lecture of the data will be available on a desktop on the boat . All the outdoor activities, with the support of CUS TORINO Canoa e Canottaggio, will take place in the section of the Po river from the end of Moncalieri to Murazzi. The team will also make a short film which will be a way to communicate and spread awarness in the urban community. The aims of the team embrace many of the Sustainable Development Goals of United Nations for 2030. The academic tutor is Elena Comino, from DIATI, teacher of Applied Ecology and Sustainable Processes for the Environment. Thanks to the many technical skills necessary to fulfill all the goals, the team is very heterogenous: our memebers come from the area of environmental, chemical, mechanical, computer and mechatronic engineering, design and architecture.

    • AUT - Autocostruzione Urbanismo Tattico: The AUT team at Polytechnic of Turin aims to increase the students' experience and awareness around the themes of self-construction, tactical urbanism, public activism and low-cost, high-impact urban transformations. To this end, AUT goes beyond the University environment and projects towards the public space, by means of self-built, small-scale interventions ranging from micro architectural installations that fit into the fragile urban space to experimental squares or pedestrianizations as injections of potential regeneration. Throughout their activities with AUT, the students are mentored by specialized professionals from both inside and outside the University, that we believe critical for a deeper reasoning on the transformations that are characterizing our cities and the understanding of the tools available to the architect to operate effectively, quickly and lightly. Beyond gaining practical on-field experience through hands-on laboratories and workshops, the students at AUT have a chance to broaden their horizons by taking part in inspiring meetings, debates, and talks, that we believe essential for the formation of a fully aware architect.

    • B-UP : The group was born from the atelier 'FINAL DESIGN STUDIO - 01QMIQN', AA 2018/19. During the course we joined to the design competition RESILIENT HOMES DESIGN CHALLENGE, called by World Bank, United Nation, Build Academy. The aim was to design a resilient housing solution. Our proposal, the Core House, a bamboo houseboat able to withstand floods and strong winds, won. This was the beginning of a process of exhibitions and presentations of the winning projects around the world. At the award ceremony in Washington, DC, March 2019, we woven links with the other winners who are currently making prototypes of their proposals. So the idea of the STUDENT TEAM was born, which aims to keep up with these realities. We aim at the elaboration of executive drawings and the subsequent construction in spring 2021 of part of the housing module, the Core Unit, which in the project turns out to be the resistant heart of the house. The bamboo prototype will have to be structurally stable and ready to withstand floods and strong winds. The buoyancy system will have to be built and tested. At the same time, the prototype will have to guarantee self-sufficiency to its inhabitants in case of danger or not. First of all, therefore, we will carry out structural analyses and virtual simulations in order to guarantee constructive feasibility, energy autonomy and resilience. Next, we will build.

    • La raccolta differenziata 2.0: EcòPoli and the Mu Nu Chapter of IEEE-Eta Kappu Nu association propose a project to optimize waste collection at the Politecnico. Correct waste management is an issue of fundamental importance since a series of environmental, ethical and economic problems are related to it. Taking inspiration from the data collection projects already active in our University relating to the consumption and production of electricity and water consumption, the idea is to extend monitoring to waste flows within the Polytechnic. The Project is based on an improvement of the current baskets with detection sensors (volume, weight and proximity) that will be applied without any modification that could hinder the work of the operators or modify their external state. The goal is to collect data on waste disposal, in order to be able to identify areas where this is not done correctly and those where greater use of operators is required for emptying the bins. Secondly, the installation of "intelligent" islands equipped, together with the sensors described above, with a video camera and a display that allow the recognition of the object through a photo and indicate to the user in which bin throw the waste.

Pino, G. Sicardi HVAC: L. Civalleri, A. Messina, C. Lisciandrello Nell'agosto 2018 il team composto dal Politecnico di Torino e dalla South China University of Technology (SCUT) di Guangzhou, è risultato vincitore assoluto nella seconda edizione del concorso Solar Decathlon China. Lo scopo è progettare, costruire e testare un NZEB ' Net Zero Energy Building: una residenza monofamiliare esclusivamente alimentata da energia solare. Il lavoro del team SCUT-PoliTO, formato da docenti e studenti di architettura e ingegneria, ha messo in discussione l'impiego - molto frequente in questo genere di realizzazioni ' della villa isolata: capace da un lato di sfruttare al meglio l'irraggiamento solare, ma scarsamente sostenibile a scala vasta, poiché associato a un consumo di suolo molto elevato. La scelta è stata quindi di lavorare sul modello della 'narrow house' (case a schiera monofamiliari) storicamente presente in molti contesti urbani, dalla Cina meridionale al nord Europa, che consente densità decisamente maggiori, un livello di privacy e una spazialità interna superiori rispetto a un tradizionale appartamento. 'Low rise, high density' è la chiave di un nuovo modello rivolto non ad un pubblico facoltoso, ma al mercato - in costante espansione in Cina - della nuova classe media, sempre più in grado di esprimere una richiesta di qualità dell'abitare. La casa, battezzata 'Long Plan', è dotata di un sofisticato sistema integrato di climatizzazione e trattamento aria, ma può avvalersi anche di un funzionamento passivo, che sfrutta i naturali moti convettivi; per questa ragione il suo comportamento può essere assimilato anche a quello delle case passive. I patii interni ospitano due giardini verticali che contribuiscono a migliorare il controllo bioclimatico e acustico. Sulla parete verde accanto alla cucina sono coltivate piante commestibili con la tecnica dell'acquaponica, che sfrutta l'accoppiamento tra una tradizione coltura idroponica e un acquario per acquacoltura. Al riscaldamento provvede un sistema di tubi capillari inserito al di sotto della pavimentazione. Completano la dotazione impiantistica i pannelli fotovoltaici double side, che consentono un incremento di potenza dal 10 al 30% grazie allo sfruttamento della luce riflessa. Grazie al controllo remoto di un'interfaccia domotica, i diversi impianti dialogano per ottimizzare il microclima e permettono di risparmiare molta dell'energia prodotta; essa - in una futura applicazione su scala urbana - potrebbe essere quindi scambiata tra i singoli utenti, anche utilizzando le stesse auto elettriche come accumulatori di energia, come ha dimostrato lo scenario elaborato ad hoc dal gruppo di ricerca della fondazione LINKS del Politecnico di Torino e Compagnia di San Paolo, con il contributo di General Motors. La competizione funge anche da vetrina: gli edifici sono esposti al pubblico e saranno trasformati in un quartiere modello. Nell'assolata piana di Dezhou, nella Provincia dello Shandong, dove sono stati realizzati gli edifici dei vari team, due milioni di visitatori hanno toccato con mano un nuovo modello che non rappresenta un futuro auspicabile, ma una possibilità già realizzabile, dal momento che sono state impiegate solo tecnologie già presenti sul mercato.

    • Squadra Corse Driverless: The project involves the design, construction and testing of an autonomous driving electric competition vehicle. The vehicle will thus be able to participate in international competitions, in which it will be evaluated on the basis of its design qualities and engineering efficiency. The best known competition is the one proposed by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), called Formula SAE, which can be attended by teams made up of undergraduate and master's degree students. Until 2016, the competition included only two categories: one for internal combustion vehicles and one for electric vehicles. Starting in 2017, Formula SAE introduced a third category for autonomous vehicles. Therefore, university students will be engaged in the design and testing of a vehicle compliant with the competition regulations and capable of moving without a driver thanks to the data collected and processed, respectively, by sensors and algorithms of perception, control and planning of the trajectory. The competition is organized in a series of static tests and a series of dynamic tests conducted without any human driver.
