The dataset contains radar-based measurements of rotor blades from three operational wind turbines as part of a structural health monitoring system. For this purpose, a sensor box with a 35 GHz radar sensor (about 1 000 measurements per second) and a camera system (about 100 images per second), is mounted on each wind turbine tower...

Bats play a crucial role as bioindicators of environmental changes, making their monitoring highly valuable. In particular, wind energy plants have been found to cause significant fatality rates among bats, as well as birds, mainly through direct collision with the rotor blades or through barotrauma effects. However, the manual identification and classification of bats through...

A journal paper coordinated by Dr. Leandro Maio and Dr. Vittorio Memmolo on ice accretion assessment has been accepted for publication in Measurements journal. Abstract: Reliable ice detection is crucial in many industrial applications, such as airplanes or wind turbines. The presence of ice can lead, on one side, to performance degradation, such as higher...
