AeroSmart is a startup company aiming to bring a significant innovation in avionic systems for air vehicles strongly committed to objectives defined by the Advisory Council for Aviation Research and innovation in Europe (ACARE).
It all started in 2012 when professors P. Gili and M. Battipede and PhD student (at the time) A. Lerro invented something extraordinarily innovative for ADAHRS systems: virtual sensors based on new processes exploiting neural networks techniques. The idea, later called Smart-ADAHRS, was patented.
In 2014 our innovation project placed among the best 15 ones of regional contest (https://startcup.i3p.it/index.php?lng=2), unfortunately without any grant. The next year, 2015, Smart-ADAHRS was on the podium of the national “proof of concept network” (PoCN CUP 2015: http://www.pocn.it/sistema-intelligente-per-il-rilievo-dei-dati-aria/) winning the necessary funding to develop our inention up to TRL6. In few months a prototype was designed, electronics procured and integrated together and finally tested at Politecnico di Torino’s rig facility. In the meanwhile, fruitful cooperation with Nando Groppo (http://groppotrail.com/) the TRAIL aircraft was instrumented (even thanks to prof. from PoliMI) and ready to fly with our prototype. Prof. Piero Gili and Ph.D. Angelo Lerro funded the AeroSmart company with the mission to commercialize our innovation in the avionic market.
