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.

EU project uses Libelium sensors to monitor ozone levels in volunteer homes

EU project uses Libelium sensors to monitor ozone levels in volunteer homes

September 5th, 2018 - Libelium

Ozone is one of the major pollutants in Europe, excessive exposure to ground-level ozone is estimated to cause about 20,000 premature deaths per year in Europe, according to the European Environment Agency.

European Union project CAPTOR measures tropospheric ozone in areas where levels usually exceed regular values. Libelium sensors are used to control air quality in rural areas and real-time information of the Captor nodes can be consulted using the captorAIR app. 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.
