In Libelium’s product portfolio is possible to find different options to control and measure agriculture and water parameters. On the one hand, Libelium offers professional solutions based in our own designed platform Waspmote: Smart Agriculture and Smart Water, on the other hand, we have designed two Arduino based cheap alternatives for makers: Open Aquarium and Open Garden that are distributed by Cooking Hacks – Libelium’s open hardware division.
In this article, we will go through the main differences between them to help Libelium’s customers to choose the platform that suits best their needs. Read more.
Today, at Dreamforce 2014, Libelium launched two new sensor platforms that automate control and maintenance tasks in aquariums and in gardens through wireless connectivity and using open source APIs. Designed for Makers, the new IoT solutions are based on Arduino, and include specialized sensors to measure parameters vital to aquatic life in ponds and fish tanks, or for indoor and outdoor gardening.

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.
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.
Since we launched Waspmote in 2009, it has powered a lot of case studies of companies and universities while we built a 2,000+ developers Community around its Open Source API. Being so close with our developers has allowed us to know the Makers behind the R&D engineers and how they were using sometimes Waspmote at home. We believe IoT is a revolution that involves not only big companies but also Makers, and because of that we start today distributing the full Waspmote OEM catalog via Cooking Hacks, our open hardware and DIY division.
One sensor platform for Makers of all sizes.
With the successful space launch of ArduSat aboard a H-IIB rocket last Sunday 4th August 2013, the first open satellite platform that allows private citizens to design and run their own applications in space is now in the International Space Station (ISS).
Included in the standard payload of the two 10cm x 10cm orbiters launched are Radiation Sensor Boards designed by Libelium that will monitor radiation levels generated by space phenomena such as sun storms and background activity. This sensing technology acts as a Geiger counter measuring gamma particles produced anywhere in space. These small Sensor Boards have a size of 4 x 3cm and an overall weight of 40gr to fit the satellite restrictions what made of the project a incredible engineering challenge for the Libelium team.
Five days from now, on August 4, 2013 at 5:00 am local time, an unmanned H11-B rocket containing Libelium Sensing Technology will lift off from the Tanegashima Space Center (TNSC) in Japan en route for the International Space Station (ISS). Included in the main payload of the two ArduSat satellites soon to be lobbed into orbit are Libelium Radiation Sensor Boards. Read more.
Cooking Hacks, the open hardware division of Libelium, today announced the immediate availability of a new 3D Printer Kit that includes all the hardware components needed to mount a 3D Printer device from scratch, a step-by-step instruction guide and access to hands-on Build-It Workshops.
