Preventive conservation of cultural heritage in times of climate change is a serious matter for heritage professionals, especially for countries with a large patrimony or at risk. The MUSEION project propose an IoT platform for monitoring of the museum environment and tackle these challenges.
The project will build on the earlier work carried out by BEIA, SEACON and SAMPAS that focused on technologies for monitoring of environmental parameters, data storage, data processing and development of specific algorithms for data extrapolation and inference, data vizualisation, as well as on research performed by INCTDP-ICPI through its ARCH Lab on mechanisms governing the environment-related deterioration processes of heritage materials and risk assessment of air pollution impacts on CH assets.
Phases and activities
Phase 1 – Usage scenarios and functional requirements of the MUSEION system – correlated with WP1 and WP2 10/08/2021 – 31/12/2021
Act 1.1 – Risk assessment due to the negative effects of climatic conditions and air quality – correlated with WP1
Act 1.2 – Market study – correlated with WP1
Act 1.3 – Analysis and definition of requirements. System architecture design – correlated with WP2
Act 1.4 – Mockups for various types of materials – correlated with WP4
Act 1.5 – Communication and dissemination of Phase I results
Development of a platform to monitor the main factors that can damage the artifacts as well as indoor air quality, in order to maintain historical objects in the best possible condition over a long period of time and maintain a pleasant environment for museum visitors.
