Designing a Smart Museum: What's IoT's Role?
Restructuring museums with IoT could transform the way people experience art and inspire entirely new business models for museums.
FREMONT, CA: The digital revolution is changing the definition of the conventional museum by opening the space for novel visitor dynamics. Notably, the integration of the Internet of Things (IoT) in museums is expected to play a crucial role in enabling new forms of content presentation and assimilation. Museum directors and curators are actively engaged in incorporating IoT into their spaces and curated exhibitions. This points to the fact that IoT will soon become a differentiating factor in the highly competitive information ecosystem. Here’s how museums are harnessing the power of IoT to improve their operations.
IoT helps museums protect their assets. For this, museums can implement wireless sensor technology. As artifacts can damage due to fluctuations in environmental parameters, sensor technology can serve as a perfect solution to track vitals, including humidity and temperature, that will ultimately help in avoiding shrinkage, wrapping, and other problems that can happen to artifacts. With sensors in place, the museum can collect real-time data to run a temperature and humidity control systems run more efficiently. This ultimately translates to museums controlling costs, reducing environmental impact, and protects the art.
Wristbands powered by IoT can personalize the museum experience for visitors. This system can lead to higher attendance numbers, an increase in memberships, and more revenue for museums. Wireless sensor networks can also save museums, money, and staff time. As more museums see what IoT technology can do, the use cases of IoT networks will also expand.
