Libelium designs and manufactures hardware and a complete software development kit (SDK) for wireless sensor networks so that system integrators, engineering, and consultancy companies can deliver reliable Internet of Things (IoT), M2M, and Smart Cities solutions with minimum time to market.
Waspmote—Libelium’s wireless sensor platform—is modular and integrates with key Cloud systems (Azure, B-Scada, Devicify, Element Blue, Esri, IoTSens, Sentilo, Solvver, Telefonica, ThingWorx, Thing+), and low-energy IoT connectivity protocols (LoRa, MQTT, Sigfox). Over 2,000 developers from 75 countries in companies ranging from startups to universities to large international corporations have adopted Libelium’s technology for projects in Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America, and North America. Commercial deployments based on Waspmote include applications as varied as parking, traffic congestion, environmental monitoring, water quality, supply chain management, and precision agriculture.
Libelium’s open hardware division, Cooking Hacks, is dedicated to educating the 4.5 M future developers needed to build the Internet of Things, and provides research kits, training on wireless sensor networks and electronics, and a curriculum to learn IoT development tools (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Waspmote, Intel Galileo) for students, teachers, professors, and universities. Cooking Hacks is hosting the IoT Spartans challenge, an initiative to identify and give public recognition to the best new IoT developers.
In 2014, Gartner Inc. named Libelium a Cool Vendor in embedded software and systems. Established in 2006, Libelium is privately held and has headquarters in Zaragoza, Spain.
