PortAventura is one of the most exciting theme parks of the world, including two of the most impressive roller coasters you can find in Europe. Libelium wanted to use this hard scenario in order to test the accelerometer included in our sensor platform Waspmote, as one of the important applications which our clients perform is related to the location and motion sensing of mobile vehicles such as cars, trains and even airplanes. In this case we wanted to measure the inertial force a person suffers when riding a roller coaster. Read more.
Meshlium Xtreme is the new multiprotocol router for wireless sensor networks designed to connect ZigBee,Wifi and Bluetooth sensors to the Internet through 3Gconnectivity. The new line launched today allows to send the information gathered by hundreds of sensor nodes at the same time, as it counts with an unprecedented "upload to the Cloud" bandwidth of 5.5 Mb/s -more than 10 times faster than compared with traditional GPRS gateways-.

More than 50 billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020, but this new connectivity revolution has already started. Libelium publishes a compilation of 50 cutting edge Internet of Things applications grouped by vertical markets. Read More.
Management of cargo freight such as sea containers is an essential element of world economic systems. The transport and delivery of goods from continent to continent and between locations on-land enable business growth and facilitate population access to necessary goods and consumer items. However, mismanagement and accidents with transport containers cause significant impact to the economy, individual businesses, workers, communities and the environment. Libelium's Waspmote sensors can be used to monitor and control logistics operations. Read more.
RESCATAME project, which has been developed by several companies including CARTIF, has been deployed in the city of Salamanca. 35 Waspmotes have been installed to monitor air quality (CO, NO2, O3, Temperature, Humidity, Particle) and noise. Its main goal is to achieve sustainable management of the traffic in the City of Salamanca by using two key-elements: a pervasive air-quality sensors network as well as prediction models. Read more.
Libelium releases Meshlium Xtreme - the first multi-protocol wireless router - offering a powerful bridge between ZigBee wireless sensor networks and the Internet.
Meshlium Xtreme is a modular, wireless, multiprotocol, mesh, outdoor router running Linux. It uniquely combines five wireless technologies - WiFi, ZigBee, GPRS, Bluetooth and GPS - as well as wireline Ethernet. The router provides wireless sensor networks a ZigBee gateway to the Internet and enables the storage of sensor data in both internal and external data base systems. Read more.
There are two main ways of performing outdoor location when tracking sensor devices in a large area such as a city. The most extended is using a GPS module to get the information sent by the satellites on the 1575MHz band and extract all the information possible (latitude, longitude, speed, direction). However, this methodology is not effective when requiring mobile scenarios where the nodes can change from a clear environment to an indoor one, such as going inside buildings, garages and tunnels. For this cases we use the information provided by the Mobile Phone Cells (Cell ID, RSSI, TA) which is captured by the GPRS module. Read the complete article.
