IoT for art: sensors for the Super Violin of Cremona (Italy)

With AURORAS, even the violin has become Smart!

In Cremona, the city of legendary luthiers such as Stradivari and Guarneri, sensors and technology IoT (Internet of Things) have helped to make it even more special the work of art of the architect Giorgio Palù inaugurated in early October: an 8 m Violin in height and 2 tons of weight made of high quality steel.

The art installation, located in the square opposite the railway station, is a tribute to the city, its history and its traditions. Not surprisingly, the website dedicated to it is entitled “The Soul of the City”, a soul that you want to show to tourists arriving in Cremona.

Auroras participated in producing the work of art, working with LineaCom for the development of the technology IoT (Internet of Things). The result: the realization of sensors, positioned close to the installation, able to detect human presence and, based on this, communicate with internal devices to sculpture in order to start music tracks recorded by the violin virtuosos.

The data transmission to LineaCom Center, to keep monitored attendance and melodies, takes place with LoRaWAN protocol that uses a next-generation technology, also suitable for long-distance communications.

The AURORAS contribution comes from the experience gained in IoT (Internet of Things): systems of objects connected to the Internet and interconnected (wireless sensors or sensors and wireless actuators and actuators etc …) which, based on preset rules, they collect data and trigger actions automatically (smart objects). Objective: to optimize the management, prevent problems and reduce costs.

The applications are endless, including

The importance of a stable and powerful connection brought Auroras to select a protocol based on LoRa technology (Long Range Radio) for the transmission of data. The LoRa devices have a range of several kilometers and cover large areas without the need for infrastructure.
Not only. LoRa allows the connection of multiple applications on the same network, ensures low energy consumption and takes care of frequency, power, modulation and the signal between the nodes and the gateway, protecting from interference. LoRa is the optimum technology for IoT (Internet of Things), to create networks of wireless sensors and M2M.

AURORAS have experienced the Lora technology (read here and here), and continues the development according to specific needs.
