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.

Libelium and SmartDataSystem present solar panel monitoring kits that control photovoltaic plants performance with IoT technology

Libelium and SmartDataSystem present solar panel monitoring kits that control photovoltaic plants performance with IoT technology

March 12th, 2019 - Libelium

Libelium and SmartDataSystem have launched new solar panel monitoring IoT kits, available in The IoT Marketplace, you can now control the different performance parameters in photovoltaic plants.

One of the most important key performance indicators (KPIs) to be considered for the return on investment (ROI) of the facilities is the Performance Ratio (PR), which combines solar radiation with the generation of energy. This measure permits the detection of performance drops in real-time and allows immediate actionand correction, avoiding and minimizing negative impact. Read more.

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.

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.

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).

New Weather Station Sensors integrated in Libelium’s IoT platform perform maximum accuracy

New Weather Station Sensors integrated in Libelium’s IoT platform perform maximum accuracy

October 16th, 2018 - Libelium

Libelium has developed a project to test the accuracy of weather stations that includes its IoT platform in comparison with the professional station of AEMET. In order to do this, Libelium’s engineering team installed two Plug & Sense! nodes in the Sustainable Urbanism Center of Zaragoza (Spain) requesting permission from AEMET to carry out the measurements in the same location and under the same conditions as its reference station.

The results obtained in the comparative study show that the station behaves in parallel and with the same precision as the official AEMET meteorological station, both in terms of wind speed and direction and in terms of accumulated precipitation parameters. Read more.
