Libelium and Intel engineers have cooperated to integrate Arduino and Raspberry Pi shields and modules to the Intel Galileo development board. As a result, a new API for our Open Source eHealth Sensor Board and a suite of step-by-step tutorials have been released to help developers design new Internet of Things applications with software and hardware.
At the Internet of Things Conference, Libelium launched a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) module that connects Waspmote sensor nodes to smartphones, tablets, and all other BLE compatible iOS and Android devices.
Pneumonia is the number 1 killer of children worldwide with 2 million deaths each year. With a child dying every 20 seconds, pneumonia is a significant contributor to neonatal mortality in developing countries – more than AIDS, malaria and measles combined.
The illness is treatable and preventable, but accurate early detection is key.
After creating the inspirational and market research document 50 Sensor Applications for a Smarter World, we have comprised that information in a beautiful infographic comprising Smart Cities, Internet of Things (IoT) and other sensing applications. Just with a glance you can see all the verticals that are changing with the Internet of Things and understand why it is the next technological revolution. Both the document and infographic can be found here.
The e-Health Sensor platform allows Arduino and Raspberry Pi users to perform biometric and medical applications where body monitoring is needed by using 9 different sensors: pulse, oxygen in blood (SPO2), airflow (breathing), body temperature, electrocardiogram (ECG), glucometer, galvanic skin response (GSR-sweating), blood pressure (sphygmomanometer) and patient position (accelerometer). The e-Health Platform has been designed by Cooking Hacks (the open hardware division of Libelium) in order to help researchers, developers and artists to measure biometric sensor data for experimentation, and test purposes.

ARES system has been developed by DeltaZ, a Malaysian company focused on medical products, which has been deployed in several cities in Malaysia. The system is able to monitor several parameters (Oxygen, CO2, Vibration or Temperature among others) in different environments such as medical refrigerators, ultra low temperature freezers or LN2 tanks among others. More than 50 Waspmotes have been deployed in several hospitals in order to control and preserve medical drugs and vaccines.
