Check the art to prevent the theft of artwork.


Works of art are prone to theft and every year works of art disappear from both our municipality and other municipalities. Here the idea was raised to be able to somehow protect and follow stolen art - so that it will hopefully find its way back to its place again!


The technology should be mature to be able to help us with the mission. The property administration, together with the culture administration and the city building administration, is investigating the possibility of some form of transmitter that registers if any damage is done to a work of art or if it is moved.

The technology would use the city hub's network for communication.

The project is finished, after a feasibility study we chose to go ahead with simpler technology and mark up the art with more traditional theft marking.
