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).

Quick Report: Smart Water IoT solutions to fight against climate change and scarcity

Quick Report: Smart Water IoT solutions to fight against climate change and scarcity

November 21st, 2018 - Libelium

Water scarcity enforces humankind to find new ways of smart water management. 2.1 billion people do not have access to clean and safe drinking water at home, and there are huge inequalities between countries. Water demand is expected to increase by 1/3 by 2050, since climate change and population growth are the main challenges for water.

Libelium continues its series of reports with the Smart Water IoT Solution Quick Report. The document summarizes all the benefits, advantages and the most demanded features that stakeholders look for. This new report shows how the Internet of Things can help to improve water management issues such as consumption, water usage improvement and cost reduction. Read more.

Protecting and conserving the beluga whale habitat in Alaska with Libelium’s flexible sensor platform

Protecting and conserving the beluga whale habitat in Alaska with Libelium’s flexible sensor platform

July 12th, 2018 - Libelium

Beluga whales are considered critically endangered with a population estimated around 150,000 worldwide. In 2017, a natural gas leak was detected approximately 6 kilometers offshore in the Cook Inlet near Nikiski (Alaska). Alaskan authorities responded with detailed and challenging monitoring requirements due to the area being a critical habitat for endangered beluga whales.

Libelium’s partner company Aridea Solutions designed a solution to monitor the leak based in a buoy equipped with Libelium’s wireless sensor platform to monitor air and water near the leak affecting the Beluga whales and other aquatic mammals. This project consisted of monitoring methane, oxygen and CO2 levels above the surface of the water. While simultaneously monitoring dissolved methane, dissolved O2 and several other parameters directly beneath the surface of the water. Read more.

Early flood detection and warning system in Argentina developed with Libelium sensors technology

Early flood detection and warning system in Argentina developed with Libelium sensors technology

June 27th, 2018 - Libelium

Libelium and the Argentinian company Rack2 have developed a permanent flood monitoring system based on IoT technology in La Emilia, a small village in the North of Buenos Aires. Its location next to a river has been subject to several flood alerts throughout its history. With the last flood in 2017, a 75% of the population were forced to evacuate, one person died and more than 3,000 people were moved to several evacuation centers.

The final objective of the authorities was to have a permanent water monitoring system, not only for risk alerts but also to produce a satisfactory water flow, to control and record its behavior. Rack2, Libelium’s distributor in Argentina, has implemented an early flood detection and warning system using Libelium technology, a reliable and stable structure in terms of communications and accuracy.

Controlling quality of irrigation water with IoT to improve crops production

Controlling quality of irrigation water with IoT to improve crops production

December 21st, 2017 - Libelium

The irrigation water quality, as well as the correct management of the water resources, is essential for the productivity and efficiency of the crops. Controlling and analyzing water before irrigating is crucial and its quality may vary significantly depending on the time of year. So frequent measurements are recommended. The Spanish company GMV has developed a water quality monitoring system based in Libelium technology. The nodes were installed at the “El Portal” irrigation dam, located on the Guadalete river where it passes through Jerez de la Frontera (Spain). Read more.
