Abstract

Mine, a reconverted mine into tourist destination situated in the North-West of the Italian Alps, in the Piedmont Region. The system is based on a wireless network system, called Scatol8®, which provides information to the TIQMS (Territorial Integrated Quality Management System). These tools have been developed by a research unit within the Commodity Science Area of the Department of Management, thanks to the participation to the multidisciplinary research project “PROGEOPiemonte”. The project aim at enhancing the quality of the tourist package in order to improve tourism in the area based on geo resources as well as industrial heritage. Scatol8® is a remote sensing network of environmental, landscape and management variables based on open-source technology (hardware and software) that consists of a central and peripheral units, connected in a network. Numerous sensors are inserted in the peripheral units, which transmit the data to the central one and, thanks to a server, to the Internet. Sensors and peripheral units can change in type and numbers depending on customers’ requirements; thus, it is possible to create a real-time monitoring of each measured variable as well as evaluate their performance over time. To set up Scatol8® wireless network in the Gianna mine geosite, some critical points (due to the microclimate and the morphology of the gallery in terms of low temperature, high humidity rate, wireless communication) have been faced and overcome. In the end, the complete network has been designed and partially implemented, identifying steps for the complete implementation, which is expected on June 2015. Data can be input for the territorial system. TIQMS is a methodology that allows the user to analyze a region by many points of view, regarding quality, landscape, environmental, occupational health and safety, and social accountability aspects. All these features are managed because of the European Landscape Convention adopted by Italy and the following international standards: ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004, OHSAS 18001:2007 and SA800:2008. All these standards request the assessment of some specific indicators that can be evaluated thanks to the information supplied by Scatol8®.
