Real-Time Mapping

The main objective of SnATCH is to provide a real-time and distributed mapping of the structural health of buildings and structures hosting museum artworks, in order to prevent potentially dangerous situations.

Pervasive Acquisition

The WSN technology represents a suitable hardware backbone for the pervasive acquisition of the data through wireless links existing among low-cost and low-power sensing devices distributed in large areas.


The scalability and the flexibility of such platform make the WSN very attractive for cultural heritage applications since strong constraints on the installation of hardware and cables are usually imposed.

Inversion Methods

The main challenge of SnATCH resides in the study and definition of the inversion methods suitable for the efficient processing of the large set of low-quality sensor data.
