CSI-MURDER investigates how the proper manipulation of Wi-Fi frames’ prehamble interfere with algorithms that use channel-state-information (CSI) for sensing the physical environment. Recent work demonstrated that it is possible to use CSI data for controlling people movement and activity. This project studies how to re-establish victims’ privacy by deploying techniques at the physical layer that can circumvent sensing algorithms.

CSI-MURDER is an Experiment of the ORCA Project. Please visit the web page of the project to see the related publications, the availability of code through github and much more.

netCommons: Network Infrastructure as Commons

netCommons is a Horizon2020 research project that has been coordinated by Renato Lo Cigno at the University of Trento.

NetCommons introduced in the scenario of telecommunication networks a novel transdisciplinary methodology on treating network infrastructure as commons, for resiliency, sustainability, self-determination, and social integration. Project partners have expertise in engineering, computer science, economics, law, political science, urban, media, and social studies; and close links with successful Community Networks like,, and

Activities around netCommons ideas are still going on in ANS group in Brescia in collaboration with Leonardo Maccari, now at the University Ca’Foscari in Venice and other netCommons partners.
