Libelium presented a catalogue of sensor applications in areas such as smart cities, smart environment, smart water, smart energy metering, security, retail, logistics, manufacturing, smart agriculture, smart animal farming, home automation, and e-health.
Since 2008, there are more objects connected to the Internet than persons in the world and this figure will hit 50 billion by 2020. Smart cities, full of sensors will help improve lifestyles, machines talking to machines, and people and objects jump into the Internet adding layers of data and complexity. The virtual Internet becomes more physical. We enter the Internet of Things era.
Libelium believes that IoT requires an open platform capable of dealing with different technologies, communication protocols, and sensor databases. Libelium released WASPMOTE, The Wiresless Sensor Network Platform as open source, horizontal and modular platform enabling developers design and deploy sensor applications.
Hundreds apps have developed over WASPMOTE. 50 of them are presented in the catalogue below. Selected smart city applications are about
01.Smart Parking: Monitoring of parking spaces availability in the city.
02.Structural health: Monitoring of vibrations and material conditions in buildings, bridges and historical monuments.
03.Noise Urban Maps: Sound monitoring in bar areas and centric zones in real time.
04.Traffic Congestion: Monitoring of vehicles and pedestrian levels to optimize driving and walking routes.
05.Smart Lightning: Intelligent and weather adaptive lighting in street lights.
06.Waste Management: Detection of rubbish levels in containers to optimize the trash collection routes.
07.Intelligent Transportation Systems: Smart Roads and Intelligent Highways with warning messages and diversions according to climate conditions and unexpected events like accidents or traffic jams.
