The performance of different policy design strategies is a key issue in evaluating programmes for water quality improvement under the Water Framework Directive (60/2000). This issue is emphasised by information asymmetries between regulator and agents. Using an economic model under asymmetric information, the aim of this paper is to compare the(More)
The Thesaurus project, funded by the Tuscany Region, had among its goals the development of technologies and methodologies for archaeological search with Autonomous Underwater Vehicles working as a team in exploration missions. This has led to the design and realization of a new AUV class, the Typhoon, on the basis of the archaeological requirements, and of(More)
In the last years magneto-rheological dampers have been successfully used to realize semi-active suspension systems for automotive applications. Due to their dimension flexibility and the wide range of forces they can exert, these devices can be used even for railway applications, such as in the present work. This paper is focused on the design, evaluation(More)

The agricultural sectors' contribution to the provision of energy is a central issue in Horizon 2020 strategies and has shaped the public and research debates on the future of the bioeconomy. The common agricultural policy (CAP) has been one of the main drivers of farmers' behavioural changes and represents the main agricultural policy instrument to address(More)
The stability of industrial vehicles, such as forklifts and lifters, is very important from a safety point of view: these vehicles are subjected to variable loading conditions and their design is often optimized to privilege handling in narrow spaces, instead of stability. To study in deep the problem of vehicle capsize prevention, the authors developed a(More)
SUMMARY. The paper summarizes some studies on the development of a six-legged mobile robot. The paper describes the features of the numerical model of the six legged robot developed in the Applied Mechanics Laboratory of the Energetics Department, University of Florence. The robot is currently used for didactics purposes. The availability of a simple but(More)
