Wel... no secret weapons at all! Only absence of proper advertising... 
UniCT is not so good in publishing research info :-)

Anyway... here are some pointers, if you want to discuss some (or all) 
of them, please contact me privately.

All the best,

1. Robotics
===========
Erlang has been used by our team to program a robot in two edition of 
the "Eurobot" competition (2006 and 2007). See 
http://eurobot.diit.unict.it. We'll repeat the experience this year. In 
2006 and 2007, I made two presentations about such a project at Erlang 
Traning & Consulting, London (slides available on request). On such a 
topic, two papers have been presented at EUC'06 and Erlang Workshop 2007.

2. Robotics and 3D
==================
Recently, we started a project for the realisation of a 3D robotic 
simlation engine. Check http://rosen.sourceforge.net/.

3. Hard real-time Erlang
========================
Enzo Nicosia, at Erlang Workshop 2007, presented a paper on how to 
excute hard-real-time computations using Erlang.

4. AI
=====
The ERESYE tool, http://sourceforge.net/projects/eresye/, has been 
developed together with Francesca Gangemi; it allows programmers to 
design and implement inference systems in Erlang. A paper has been 
published at Erlang Workshop 2005. See also 
http://www.trapexit.org/Artificial_Intelligence_with_Erlang:_the_Domain_of_Relatives.

5. Multi-Agent Systems
======================
eXAT (http://www.diit.unict.it/users/csanto/exat) is a tool for the 
implementation of multi-agent systems in Erlang. It is FIPA compliant 
and integrates ERESYE for agent reasoning. Several papers have been 
published.

6. Grid Systems
===============
Erlang has been used to develop a simulator of a P2P Grid system. The 
aim was to test a novel resource finding algorithm based on "potential 
field navigation". See:

7. P2P Systems
==============
Erlang has been recently used to develop a simulator of a novel 
algorithm to build locality-based overlay networks. Such a simulator is 
being used to generate overlay networks to test a QoS-aware MPEG 
transmission protocol.
