Detecting Radiation Levels in Fukushima: an example of crowdsourcing

Detecting Radiation Levels in Fukushima: an example of crowdsourcing

February 22nd, 2013 - Alberto Bielsa

The creation of the Radiation Sensor Board was motivated by the nuclear disaster in Fukushima after the unfortunate earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan in March 2011. We wanted to help authorities to measure the levels of radiation of the affected zones without compromising the life of the security and rescue teams. For this reason we designed in just 3 weeks a Geiger Counter sensor board for Waspmote, which could read the radiation levels automatically and send the information in real time using wireless technologies like ZigBee and 3G/GPRS to the control point without human intervention.

e-Health Sensor Platform for Biometric and Medical applications

e-Health Sensor Platform for Biometric and Medical applications

January 22nd, 2013 - Libelium

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.

Wireless Sensor Networks to Control Radiation Levels

Wireless Sensor Networks to Control Radiation Levels

April 19th, 2011 - David Gascón, Marcos Yarza

The creation of the Radiation Sensor Board has been motivated by the nuclear disaster in Fukushima after the unfortunate earthquake and tsunami struck Japan. We want to help authorities and security forces to measure the levels of radiation of the affected zones without compromising the life of the workers. For this reason we have created an autonomous battery powered Geiger Counter which can read the radiation levels automatically and send the information in real time using wireless technologies like ZigBee and GPRS.

Cooking Hacks: the new “kitchen” for electronics enthusiasts and the Arduino Community

September 14th, 2010 - Libelium

Today is available Cooking Hacks for marketing Arduino and Squidbee products designed by Libelium.

 

Cooking Hacks' goal is to spread technology and electronic passion in a funny way by step-by-step tutorials explained as recipes. In order to celebrate the launch of the new website, we will award all those people that submit their hacks and recipes before November 1st 2010.

 

Cooking Hacks includes a wide range of tutorials, cost-effective products, a forum, news, customer service and user-created hacks & recipes. The products offered on Cooking Hacks are mainly aimed at educational and hobby use, although they can be also used by companies in early prototyping stages. With this new business line, we complete our technology offering covering the whole range between proffesional and hobbyists users.
