Augmented Reality, 3D Models, Three-dimensional Scans, Applications for Smartphones and Tablets, these are the constituent ingredients of AmiTech, a set of the most advanced technological solutions at the service of users, for their entertainment and knowledge.
AmiAR is an application for mobile devices, available on Android and IOS, which allows the visitor, thanks to Augmented Reality and 3D Graphics, to be the protagonist of a treasure hunt set in a museum location. The idea arises from the need to give the user the opportunity to discover the location in an innovative way and acquire content in an enjoyable way thanks to the game. In fact, users can immerse themselves in the experience by solving puzzles whose solutions will be works present in the chosen location, to be framed with a camera to be able to access additional contents in AR. After downloading the application on their devices, users can choose their profile from the four present (child, teen, adult or expert): the difficulty of the puzzles and the vocabulary of the experience have been developed and differentiated according to the profiling models.
In particular, two games have been developed with the AMIAR App: one based on the demonstrator “Museo Civico Gaetano Filangieri”, entitled “The dream of the Prince of Satriano”, and the other dedicated to the demonstrator “Fondazione Circolo Artistico Politecnico “, Entitled” In Search of Myriam “
AMI Filangieri Smart Museum
A museum yet to be discovered. Year 1888 Gaetano Filangieri, Prince of Satriano, donates a Civic Museum to his beloved city. Despite the great operation, over the next two centuries, a series of misfortunes and bad management, did not allow Filangieri’s dream to continue. In the 2000s a major valorisation operation was implemented, with the reopening to the public. Today this development continues, it does so with the most modern technologies, thanks to the AMI project. We want to promote this museum by offering the visitor to know the works through an IoT App, which is able to be a tool for the visitor to enter the museum and discover the works through an intelligent use.
By downloading the App, the user, who decides to visit the Filangieri, puts his device in communication with a series of beacons (previously arranged inside the rooms). These are small emitters able to be intercepted, via Bluetooth system, by smartphone and by users’ tablet, which are put in contact with the work.
Through the concept of proximity, the user can decide to listen to the history of the work and continue with all those that belong to a specific path. The two chosen routes are: The strong pieces of the Museum and the Filangieri Family. The cards are multilingual and multimedia, to access them select the preferred user profile (choose between child, teenager, adult and expert) you see photo galleries, you have the opportunity to follow the story by listening to the story by a professional voice.

Some objects are of great value because they are rare and very well preserved. To promote this place, and to introduce the most important objects in the collection, an app was created in IoT, to bring together not only the expert public, but entire categories, in particular teenagers and children, more accustomed to the use of modern technologies.
