1 Radiofrequency Identification for movable heritage management Central International Archive of Art Objects Member of Albert Canals – General Director AICOA 7 th European Conference ‘SAUVEUR’ Prague JUNE 1 st, 2006

2 Member of Introduction Nowadays several conditions are affecting movable heritage management: –High mobility (transportation, warehouses, exhibitions,...) –No accessible information concerning the heritage object The result is a growing environment of insecurity arising in this sector (museums, investors, artists,...) Traceability is the best way to warranty full security to cultural objects RFID helps us to assure this traceability

3 Member of About RFID Step ahead for Automatic Data Collection (ADC) technologies Based on wirelessly exchange of data Clear alternative to barcode systems in many applications Basic elements: –Tag: smart label with a chip and an antenna –Reader / writer: device that extract / record the information on the tag RFID = Radiofrequency Identification ERPREADERANTENNATAGS

4 Member of Each RFID tag has a unique serial number which allows individual, unrepeatable identification worldwide Additional data store area that permits to register higher volume of information No line-of-sight is required to read the chip, so the tag can be embedded, and hence be able to work in harsh environments (high temperatures,…) Security elements and encryption possibilities Availability of sensor devices (temperature, humidity,…) Compatibility: common devices such as mobile phones or PDA’s can be used as readers with minimum adaptation RFID features

5 Member of Artworks Traceability Ability to track an artwork through the different steps of its life, from the creation onwards Be able to identify, register and transmit the information anytime and anywhere RFID is an excellent technology to assure traceability due to its intrinsic features But some problems arise when trying to mark directly the art object: –Broad casuistic, difficult standardization –Troubles in the manipulation of the object –Preserve requirements –Existing copyrights

6 Member of Artworks documentation To solve this, our proposal is to mark the documents that serve to identify, register and follow-up the artwork To create a standard documentation process suitable for all types of heritage objects Anyway, Saident keeps on working in the development of different RFID seals (with embedded tags) to be attached to the artworks

7 Member of Artworks documentation and AICOA AICOA (Central International Archive of Artworks) is specialized in documenting and register all kinds of artworks AICOA offers the following services based on RFID to authors and collectors: –Identification and description of the artwork –Register and archive –On-line information availability Central International Archive of Art Objects

8 Member of AICOA’s procedures 1.Identification and description –Description of Artwork Document (DOA) Standard code for artworks (GS1) Authorship declaration Experts certifications Technical features and pictures A RFID tag is attached to the document Standard ISO 15693:2004 Frequency: 13,56 MHz Information registered –Serial unique number –GS1 artwork code –Author’s name –Title of the artwork

9 Member of AICOA’s procedures 1.Identification and description –Passport Guide: track the artwork life, containing its basic information and additional data regarding exhibitions, registers, movements (transport, customs control,…) –RFID tag attached, ISO –Implementation of ISO (e-passport) is being studied

10 Member of AICOA’s procedures 2.Registering and archive –AICOA is adopting a RFID- based security system to protect and preserve all the documents –Access control through RFID doors and smart shelves with embedded antennas –Benefits: Automatic search and localization of the documents Permanent inventory Alarms available Confidentiality

11 Member of AICOA’s procedures 3.Information transmission –AICOA’s central server and Intranet provide all the information regarding the registered objects: public and private information, on-line reports, certifications (RFID tag attached) –Remote consultation available –Use of EPCglobal network is being studied

12 Member of EPCglobal network TM 3.Information transmission –The EPCglobal network connects different servers worldwide containing information related to items identified by EPC numbers –The servers are called EPC Information Systems (EPCIS) –The ONS (Objects Name Services) will allow to locate the information of any tagged object –Authorization and access control will provide privacy and data protection

13 Member of Thank you very much Questions ?
