Saving precious artwork in Italian museums
Italian Government, Wind|3, Vodafone, Italy
To secure a continuous, indoor, healthy environment for precious works of art.
In the National Gallery of Ancient Art in Rome, Ericsson installed the Ericsson IoT Accelerator platform, which allows the museum to connect to smart light, humidity, temperature and energy consumption sensors.
The Ericsson IoT Accelerator can be applied to important museums and buildings in Rome that house masterpieces. Through connectivity and data analysis we have supported the identification of actions that can potentially enable a 20 percent energy saving in the buildings. Environmental monitoring sensors allow museums to respond to fluctuations in visitor numbers and weather conditions, for example. IoT technology also helps optimize energy consumption and make better use of air-conditioning systems.
