Sensor data protect cultural assets – com! professional

FH St. Pölten

The Dataskop research project coordinated by the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences makes invisible sensor data from the environment visible to people using augmented reality.

It develops mobile data visualization methods embedded in the environment in order to connect the physical environment and abstract data representations. In a specific case for the project, the scientists are investigating how this can protect cultural heritage. This can be used to preserve historical buildings or to assess the condition of buildings after earthquakes.

A specific use case deals with the protection of cultural heritage. The Dataskop team is currently collecting ideas on how to use sensors and sensor data visualization for the monitoring and preservation of historical sites and objects. To do this, sensors could record various data on the condition of buildings, such as moisture, cracks in walls, shocks, vibrations and broken glass.

“The challenges here include security and data protection, a lack of common tools and terminology in the field of data visualization and the protection of cultural heritage as well as the identification of those responsible for such sites and objects,” says Wolfgang Aigner, who coordinates and announces the project of the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences heads the Institute for Creative Media / Technologies.

Other use cases in the project are a test installation with disinfectant dispensers in the buildings of the University of Krems, in which sensors in the dispensers measure the battery level and the low level of disinfectant, as well as a test bed for IT security to test security weak points in a LoRaWAN network University of Applied Sciences St. Pölten.
