Environmental Monitoring Platform Based on a Heterogeneous Wireless Sensor Network
In museums, to conserve the existing artwork is a vital issue. To achieve this purpose, it is fundamental to monitor its environment, either in storage or exhibition rooms. The deployment of a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) can help to implement these measurements continuously, in a real-time basis, and in a much easier and cheaper way than when using traditional measuring equipments and procedures. This is the main objective of the WISE-MUSE project, which uses WSNs for monitoring and automatically controlling museums' environment and structural health.
