Libelium’s IoT technology contributes to heritage preservation monitoring of two historic masterpieces

Libelium’s IoT technology contributes to heritage preservation monitoring of two historic masterpieces

July 16th, 2019 - Libelium

Libelium and the Huesca Museum have developed a research project combining art and technology, using the Internet of Things for historical-artistic heritage preservation. Both entities have reached a collaboration agreement led by the museum’s conservation area to measure the preservation conditions of two important tapestry masterpieces.

The Libelium’s Plug & Sense! devices have been placed behind both pieces with only the light sensor visible. The data collected by the devices is sent to the Internet through a 4G connection and arrives in graphic form to a webpage where it can be analyzed in real-time.

MySignals helps to improve medical assistance for Sahrawi population in North Africa

MySignals helps to improve medical assistance for Sahrawi population in North Africa

June 18th, 2019 - Libelium

The Sahara desert is an area of 9 millions km2 that extends throughout North Africa. It is the largest warm desert in the world. At the eastern end of this desert lies the Western Sahara region, one of the most sparsely populated territories in the world and possibly the one with the lowest population density.

Health care doesn’t reach the entire Sahrawi population. A medical emergency that requires a trip to the nearest hospital can involve a car trip of more than 8 hours, putting the patient at severe risk of death during the journey.

The MySignals solution offers the possibility of carrying a hospital in a briefcase, which makes it a very interesting option to work in areas that are not well communicated due to the reduction of costs and transport to any corner of the desert.

Smart Water technology provides safe and clean water to Indigenous communities in Canada

Smart Water technology provides safe and clean water to Indigenous communities in Canada

May 22nd, 2019 - Libelium

In November 2015 there were 105 long-term drinking water advisories on public systems on Canadian indigenous reserves that affected more than 10,000 homes and community buildings. In March 2021 it is projected there will be 0. This ambitious improvement will be possible thanks to the application of the Internet of Things.

The First Nations represents more than 50 nations and 50 indigenous languages from 634 communities in Canada. More than 1.67 million people in Canada identify themselves as an Indigenous person (according to the 2016 Census). About half of them live in provinces of Ontario and British Columbia.

Preventing asthma attacks in children with a sensor network that monitors air quality conditions in play areas

Preventing asthma attacks in children with a sensor network that monitors air quality conditions in play areas

April 10th, 2019 - Libelium

Asthma is one of the most frequent causes of absenteeism in schools. This disease, that affects the respiratory tract, can alter sleep, play and other activities necessary for proper child growth.

In industrialized countries, a progressive rise in asthma has been observed. The condition is prevalent between 3 and 30% of school year children aged 6 and 7 years old.

In this regard, engineers of the Airalab Rus team had the idea to install a modern automatic sensor provided by Libelium in several play areas. This is how the “Smart yard. Safe environment” project began.

New vineyard project developed with Libelium IoT platform on Agrotech, the app for crop management, powered by Efor and Ibercaja on Microsoft Azure

New vineyard project developed with Libelium IoT platform on Agrotech, the app for crop management, powered by Efor and Ibercaja on Microsoft Azure

March 26th, 2019 - Libelium

Precision viticulture projects look for the maximization of the oenology potential of the vineyards, adapting to extreme conditions, to obtain higher quality and better productivity of the vintage. Agricultural IoT projects provide efficiency, sustainability, optimization of natural resources and traceability.

The Spanish bank Ibercaja impulsed Agrotech, an IoT financing program for agronomists to ease the introduction and adoption of the Internet of Things technology into this traditional sector. Agrotech was developed by EFOR, global leader in technological services, and solutions for management, communication and marketing of companies, and Libelium, hardware IoT company specialized in agriculture precision.

3D air quality modeling with sensor drones in Greece

3D air quality modeling with sensor drones in Greece

February 5th, 2019 - Libelium

Air pollution in Greece has been a serious environmental problem in the last decades. Rapid and disorganized urbanization of cities, lack of infrastructure and an increasing motor vehicle fleet in urban regions were the main causes of air quality deterioration in the country.

Antonios Koutroumpas, student of the Technical University of Crete, developed his Bachelor’s Thesis in Production Systems with the title: “Use of UAV (Unnamed Aerial Vehicles) for 3D visualization of air pollutants in urban areas,” in which a small drone equipped with Libelium’s wireless sensor platform Waspmote was introduced for in-situ data acquisition.

Meshlium Scanner to monitor passengers’ activity at Manchester Airport

Meshlium Scanner to monitor passengers’ activity at Manchester Airport

January 22nd, 2019 - Libelium

In 2017, the Manchester Airport was the third busiest airport in the United Kingdom with more than 27 million passengers. Thanks to a steady annual growth between 5 and 10% in the last years, the airport is currently undergoing an expansion program to extend its capacity in more than 50 million passengers annually.

Innotech Insights Ltd. chose Libelium’s Meshlium Scanner to detect smartphones and cellular devices, measuring people’s movements inside the airport. Six devices were installed across the terminals in order to understand flows, detect and prevent eventual bottlenecks and especially ensure people’s security. Read more.

Balearic Islands to become a smart tourist destination by expanding IoT sensor networks

Balearic Islands to become a smart tourist destination by expanding IoT sensor networks

December 12th, 2018 - Libelium

The environmental report of ESPO (The European Sea Ports Organisation) for 2018 shows that air quality remains the main priority of European ports. Aware of this, the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands has been working hard since 2016 to also know the level of air quality, capacity, alignment with the Environmental Policy of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands.

Almost two years data gathering after the installation of the nodes, the Balearic Harbors Authority has reached the first conclusions from the data captured by the network of nodes. Read more.

Drones, Sensors and Blockchain for water quality control in the Volga river to promote trustworthy data and transparency

Drones, Sensors and Blockchain for water quality control in the Volga river to promote trustworthy data and transparency

November 28th, 2018 - Libelium

In Russia, approximately 70% of drinking water comes from surface, while the rest comes from groundwater. Unfortunately, water pollution is a major issue in this country, with more than 10 million Russians currently lacking access to quality drinking water. According to the Russian regulatory bodies, around 35 to 60% of total reserves of drinking water do not meet sanitary standards. This fact favors the proliferation of health issues in many cities and villages across the country, as only 8% of the wastewater is correctly treated before being returned to the waterways.

Airalab Rus, Smart IoT Distributions (Libelium’s distributor in Russia) and the Tolyatti State University have developed the project “Drone on the Volga” to measure water pollution in the Kuybyshev Reservoir, the largest water reservoir in Eurasia, located in the Volga river (in Samara Oblast).

New Weather Station Sensors integrated in Libelium’s IoT platform perform maximum accuracy

New Weather Station Sensors integrated in Libelium’s IoT platform perform maximum accuracy

October 16th, 2018 - Libelium

Libelium has developed a project to test the accuracy of weather stations that includes its IoT platform in comparison with the professional station of AEMET. In order to do this, Libelium’s engineering team installed two Plug & Sense! nodes in the Sustainable Urbanism Center of Zaragoza (Spain) requesting permission from AEMET to carry out the measurements in the same location and under the same conditions as its reference station.

The results obtained in the comparative study show that the station behaves in parallel and with the same precision as the official AEMET meteorological station, both in terms of wind speed and direction and in terms of accumulated precipitation parameters. Read more.
