New 3G Sensors Stream Photo and Video to the Cloud for new Security and Military Applications

New 3G Sensors Stream Photo and Video to the Cloud for new Security and Military Applications

April 8th, 2013 - Libelium

The new Video Camera Sensor board in conjunction with the 3G module for Waspmote allows to take photos and record videos and send them to the Cloud by using high speed 3G, WCDMA and HSPA cellular networks in the same way as Smartphones do. This makes possible sensor nodes send not only discrete sensor information such as temperature or humidity (which can be encoded using just a single number) but also complex streams of information such as photos and videos. This new feature allows developers the creation of new Security, Surveillance and Military applications. Read more.

Maximum Accuracy for new Calibrated Gas Sensors

Maximum Accuracy for new Calibrated Gas Sensors

March 18th, 2013 - Libelium

Libelium will start offering the calibration service for gas sensors to get an accuracy of a few parts per million (ppm) in the measurements. This service, demanded for a long time for our Waspmote Developer Community will be available in a few weeks. If you have interest in this new line of calibrated sensors contact our Commercial Department.

Directionable Sensor Probes for Plug & Sense!

Directionable Sensor Probes for Plug & Sense!

March 18th, 2013 - Libelium

Our encapsulated sensor line Plug & Sense! counts now with a new type of probe for some sensors which measurement is position dependant. The new directionable sensor probe can be bended with the curvature desired from 0º to 180º allowing integrators to specify the exact position of the sensor probe. Sensors which counts with this new probe are: ultrasounds, luminosity and human presence (PIR). More info in the Plug & Sense! section.

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.

Waspmote to prevent Forest Fires

Waspmote to prevent Forest Fires

May 23rd, 2012 - Alberto Bielsa

Fires, both man-made and natural, contribute to forest loss. Last week more than 100 Forest Fires broke out in the eastern part of Russia's Siberia, affecting more than 57,000 hectares of land. Waspmote can be used to monitor different environmental parameters such as temperature, humidity, CO, CO2 and many other gases. The monitoring of these parameters can be used to determine the areas where a forest fire is more likely to break out.

 

Australian researchers from Edith Cowan University's Centre for Communications Engineering Research have used Waspmote to test Wireless Sensor Networks for detecting and preventing Forest Fires in the future

Monitoring indoor air quality with Waspmote to prevent accidents and improve production processes

Monitoring indoor air quality with Waspmote to prevent accidents and improve production processes

October 27th, 2010 - Alicia Asín

Many production processes in industry, agriculture, viticulture and livestock require specific environmental conditions to be monitored at all times. Sometimes the process can generate air pollutants that can be harmful and even deadly to workers in certain concentrations. The fact of having a monitoring system with Waspmote allows to control the parameters of a production process, send alerts via GPRS and even activate mechanisms through the relay actuator included in the prototype board.

Detecting Forest Fires using Wireless Sensor Networks

Detecting Forest Fires using Wireless Sensor Networks

September 4th, 2010 - Javier Solobera

SISVIA “Vigilancia y Seguimiento Ambiental” deployed a Wireless Sensor Network in Asturias (Spain) in order to detect forest fires by monitoring CO, CO2, humidity and temperature in 210 hectares. In a hard environment like this long range communication links along with low power consumption and solar panels as energy source were Waspmote’s most valuable features.
