Libelium’s IoT technology contributes to heritage preservation monitoring of two historic masterpieces

Libelium’s IoT technology contributes to heritage preservation monitoring of two historic masterpieces

July 16th, 2019 - Libelium

Libelium and the Huesca Museum have developed a research project combining art and technology, using the Internet of Things for historical-artistic heritage preservation. Both entities have reached a collaboration agreement led by the museum’s conservation area to measure the preservation conditions of two important tapestry masterpieces.

The Libelium’s Plug & Sense! devices have been placed behind both pieces with only the light sensor visible. The data collected by the devices is sent to the Internet through a 4G connection and arrives in graphic form to a webpage where it can be analyzed in real-time.

Preventing asthma attacks in children with a sensor network that monitors air quality conditions in play areas

Preventing asthma attacks in children with a sensor network that monitors air quality conditions in play areas

April 10th, 2019 - Libelium

Asthma is one of the most frequent causes of absenteeism in schools. This disease, that affects the respiratory tract, can alter sleep, play and other activities necessary for proper child growth.

In industrialized countries, a progressive rise in asthma has been observed. The condition is prevalent between 3 and 30% of school year children aged 6 and 7 years old.

In this regard, engineers of the Airalab Rus team had the idea to install a modern automatic sensor provided by Libelium in several play areas. This is how the “Smart yard. Safe environment” project began.

3D air quality modeling with sensor drones in Greece

3D air quality modeling with sensor drones in Greece

February 5th, 2019 - Libelium

Air pollution in Greece has been a serious environmental problem in the last decades. Rapid and disorganized urbanization of cities, lack of infrastructure and an increasing motor vehicle fleet in urban regions were the main causes of air quality deterioration in the country.

Antonios Koutroumpas, student of the Technical University of Crete, developed his Bachelor’s Thesis in Production Systems with the title: “Use of UAV (Unnamed Aerial Vehicles) for 3D visualization of air pollutants in urban areas,” in which a small drone equipped with Libelium’s wireless sensor platform Waspmote was introduced for in-situ data acquisition.

Libelium unites benefits of Smart Cities IoT solutions for air quality monitoring

Libelium unites benefits of Smart Cities IoT solutions for air quality monitoring

December 19th, 2018 - Libelium

More than 500,000 people dead prematurely every year due to poor air quality in Europe. The biggest problem coming from Particulate Matter, nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and ozone (O3). The Common Air Quality Index (CAQI) is an air quality index used in Europe since 2006. The European Environment Agency started encouraging its use on websites and for other ways of informing the public about air quality.

As a pioneer in the Internet of Things sector, Libelium unites all benefits and most demanded features from the Smart Cities–Air Quality market in a new Quick Report. A document showing how the Internet of Things can collaborate on key dimensions such as: environment protection, urban planning, social cohesion or risk prevention. Read more.

Balearic Islands to become a smart tourist destination by expanding IoT sensor networks

Balearic Islands to become a smart tourist destination by expanding IoT sensor networks

December 12th, 2018 - Libelium

The environmental report of ESPO (The European Sea Ports Organisation) for 2018 shows that air quality remains the main priority of European ports. Aware of this, the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands has been working hard since 2016 to also know the level of air quality, capacity, alignment with the Environmental Policy of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands.

Almost two years data gathering after the installation of the nodes, the Balearic Harbors Authority has reached the first conclusions from the data captured by the network of nodes. 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.

Reducing Logistics’ environmental impact by air quality monitoring in the Baltic Sea Port of Gdansk, Poland

Reducing Logistics’ environmental impact by air quality monitoring in the Baltic Sea Port of Gdansk, Poland

May 29th, 2018 - Libelium

Feature Forest is a Polish start-up, specialized in developing software solutions for the IoT, taking advantage of data science methods. The company has successfully accomplished the so-called Space3ac Acceleration Program, a project which seeks the minimization of port activity impact as well as solving the problems of transportation industry players in the surrounding areas of the Gdansk Port.

The fPerception system allows the immediate detection of hazardous chemical compounds polluting the air in real time. This project aims to localize the sources of air pollutants in the area of the port, such as the berthing of vessels, the heat and power plants, the cargo handling activities, the surrounding industry or the raising road and railway transport. Libelium technology is located nearby potential sources of pollution where information about gas concentration is correlated with wind direction and speed in order to predict and react in case of an emergency.
