10 Tools for Heritage-led regeneration, tested during the demo activities in Replicators will facilitate the development of core activities with different purposes: networking & mentoring, cultural and creative support, safety, environmental control monitoring.
1. ROCK WEB PLATFORM An Interoperable Platform was created to collect and manage data sets related to Cultural Heritage in order to facilitate communication and relationships between different information sources.
2. CULTURAL HERITAGE EXPERIENCES A multiplatform app for smartphones and tablets based on Augmented Reality technology allows the viewing of historical pictures in situ, engraved pieces, maps, short videos and 3D reconstructions.
3. CREATIVE INDUSTRY GREEN TOOLS A suite of culturally developed carbon measurement tools are developed by, and for the cultural sector. The tools provide carbon footprints for organisations and cover waste, water, travel and transportation and some production impacts. They are cross-cultural and cover buildings (music, theatre, galleries, studios, museums, offices), events (festivals, productions etc), and productions (plays, shows etc.)
4. INTEGRATED CULTURAL HERITAGE ANALYTICS the result of the combination of Opinion Analytics with Video Neuroanalytics and a range of intelligent decision support systems.
5. LARGE CROWD MONITORING TOOL LBASense system analyses data over time and provides real-time insights on activity and mobility patterns within the monitored area. This combination of sensors allows the system to perform a more comprehensive reading of the crowd’s nature, enabling end-users to access demographics figures and mobility patterns on a wider scale, in ordinary and extraordinary conditions (i.e. festivals and events). The goal is to determine footfall in real-time and change rate in the crowd size, besides dwell time, revisit and flow patterns and distribution, as well as any abnormality, in the overall area under monitoring, with an additional focus on selected key-locations.
6. OUTDOOR MULTI-PARAMETER This solution includes the selection and integration of the most appropriate sensing devices, power and communication systems, in the historic demonstration areas, together with the smart gateway for data collection. Monitored data are transmitted to ROCK cloud platform, providing a business intelligence tool to enable visualization and analysis of data, thus supporting decision-making process about regeneration.
7. OUTDOOR THERMAL COMFORT The scope is to assess the improvement of Outdoor Thermal Comfort as a result of temporary or permanent transformation of architectural and technological features of urban open spaces and, consequently, of the thermo-physical properties, using tools, software and anonym questionnaires to assess how people rate comfort sensation in open spaces.
8. INDOOR MICROCLIMATE MONITORING a predictive tool to know the environment character and the user behaviour that allow to set solution to guarantee (or to improve) the indoor microclimatic parameter.
9. THE CULTURE OF LIGHT a specific solutions dealing with the universal value of light as a language to discover places and a tool of social inclusion. Light design does not simply answer to sustainable and environmental issues reducing energy demand using a new generation of led based bodies, but aims to become a way to transfer information. Innovative sensors and devices will be integrated in the lighting element to dialogue with people via app and smart mobile for enabling a new access (also for disadvantaged users) to Cultural Heritage in many different expressions (books, buildings, events) erasing the distance between sight and touch.
10. PEOPLE FLOW ANALYTICS a solution providing location-based analytics mainly based on Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking (using GPS trackers). This tool is a computer program called “Trace Annotator” (TA). TA takes GPS trace data as input and generates activity-travel diary data of users. TA simultaneously differentiates between a certain transportation mode and an activity episode. The GPS based diary data creates plenty of information on activity types, travel distance, time, duration and route. By using our online questionnaire platform and the location-based social network service data, the tool enrich the GPS data trajectories with background information of users and improve the semantic meaning of GPS trackers. The aim is to extract spatial and temporal patterns with additional socio-demographic and opinion/meaning data.
