Monitoring systems designed for museum scenarios are nowadays largely employed in order to monitor environmental parameters for artworks conservation and to control exhibitions in order to prevent and avoid critical events (e.g., theft, damages). The use of wireless sensor network technology allows the non-invasive integration of such monitoring functionalities in a great variety of complex museum scenarios, often hosted in historic buildings. The proposed system addresses the problem of monitoring multiple physical parameters of interest for museum curators, exploiting the advantages of a flexible, cooperative, and pervasive WSN architecture.
