This paper presents an
multisensor framework based on the BeableBone Black platform, a complete open hardware and software embedded computer; the challenge is to create a multi-purpose hierarchical network composed by
nodes able to gain and manage heterogeneous data and spaces according to the Internet of Things paradigm. Thanks to several expansion modules, the designed nodes can become an instrument for monitoring, preservation and protection of several environments. As a proof of the proposed framework we conducted a first prototypal experimentation within the Cultural Heritage domain; in detail we deployed the system in an art exhibition within the Maschio Angioino Castle, Naples, Italy.
