Waspmote is a sensor device specially oriented to developers. It works with different protocols such as: 802.15.4, ZigBee, WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G/GPRS, being capable of getting links up to 12km.
It counts with an hibernate mode of 0.07µA which allows to save battery when it is not transmitting. More than 60 sensors already available and a complete open source IDE (API libraries + compiler) make it really easy to start working with the platform.
Over the Air Programming (OTA) capabilities and Encryption libraries to ensure maximum security in communications are also available making Waspmote the most versatile sensor platform in the market.
The new Waspmote Plug & Sense! line allows developers to forget electronics and focus on services and applications. Now you can deploy wireless sensor networks in a easy and scalable way ensuring minimum maintenance costs.
The new platform consists of a waterproof enclosure with specific external sockets to connect the sensors, the solar panel, the antenna and even the USB cable in order to reprogram the node (Over the Air Programming (OTA) is also available). It been specially designed to be scalable, easy to deploy and maintain.
Meshlium woks as the Gateway of the Waspmote Sensor Networks. It reads the sensor frames coming from the nodes and store them in its internal data base and in external cloud systems located on the Internet.
The frames coming from Waspmote are normally received by the 802.15.4/ZigBee radio and sent to the Internet using Ethernet, WiFi and 3G interfaces.
Meshlium allows us even to detect iPhone and Android devices and in general any device which works with WiFi or Bluetooth interfaces. The idea is to be able to measure the amount of people and cars which are present in a certain point at a specific time, allowing the study of the evolution of the traffic congestion of pedestrians and vehicles.
