Innovative and affordable service for the Preventive Conservation monitoring of individual Cultural Artefacts during display, storage, handling and transport

Despite the difficult situation of COVID-19 in Spain, at the end of July, the DFA and the UPV agreed to do their best to deploy a set of basic CC wireless sensor nodes in the Fine Arts Museum and Arms Museum of DFA in Vitoria (Spain).

The UPV team representatives made the six-hour trip from Valencia to Vitoria in their own car to avoid public transportation and make the trip as safe as possible in accordance with health recommendations.

In Vitoria, the members of the DFA and the UPV worked side by side to carry out the radio mapping of both buildings, to decide the most appropriate location for the sensors and to fix them correctly with double-sided reversible strips.

We are very happy with the results of this test. We have successfully overcome all obstacles!

The work is done and both DFA and UPV members have learned a lot from this experience, which will undoubtedly serve to improve the next deployments to be carried out in the other international scenarios when the current crisis situation improves.

These three days of work were very intense and very satisfactory, both from a technical and personal point of view. Vitoria is a great place: pleasant city, excellent food and wonderful people.
