» Reducing 40% poluted run-off from a shooting land area with Libelium IoT sensor platform

Challenge: Shooting range soils often contain high levels of lead (Pb) and antimony (Sb) that arise from the weathering of spent bullets. The highest Pb and Sb concentrations are usually found near bullet traps, however, due to weathering of spent bullets and metal mobility, the pollution can persist for hundreds of years.

Runoff is the part of the precipitation that flows over the surface of the land into a watercourse or underground. Pollution from runoff water is a major problem in urban areas because it has been shown to contain the same types of pollutants found in urban wastewater.

» MySignals helps to improve medical assistance for Sahrawi population in North Africa

Challenge: Health care doesn’t reach the entire Sahrawi population. Although the solution to the socio-sanitary problems in the Sahara is not going to be solved by a single MySignals case, it is a start because of its transportability and wide range of sensors.

The Sahara desert is an area of 9 millions km2 that extends throughout North Africa. It is the largest warm desert in the world. At the eastern end of this desert lies the Western Sahara region, one of the most sparsely populated territories in the world and possibly the one with the lowest population density.

Health care doesn’t reach the entire Sahrawi population. A medical emergency that requires a trip to the nearest hospital can involve a car trip of more than 8 hours, putting the patient at severe risk of death during the journey.

The MySignals solution offers the possibility of carrying a hospital in a briefcase, which makes it a very interesting option to work in areas that are not well communicated due to the reduction of costs and transport to any corner of the desert.
