Libelium White paper: 50 Real IoT success stories after ten years of experience in the market

With the aim to unveil its horizontal approach to the IoT market, Libelium has launched a new white paper to  present 50 real smart projects deployed in 120 countries all over the world. The IoT company has summarized its most successful and appealing stories, developed with Libelium technology and its partners’ ecosystem, for  the main verticals of the market. The white paper includes real IoT projects for environment care, water management, precision agriculture, smart cities, parking management, smart building, smart factory, logistics, retail and eHealth.

Τhe company has featured some  real success stories  that are enhancing the competitiveness of many companies and are facing the most important challenges of the new milenium. For example, the precision farming solution developed in Australia to  reduce losses in one of the main nurseries of the country; the Smart Water system to  control water quality in Vietnamese fish farms; the Smart City mobile monitoring system to  control air quality in Glasgow; or the  eHealth project in Dominican Republic  to prevent pre-eclampsia in pregnant women.

Alicia Asín, Libelium CEO, and David Gascón, Libelium CTO, analyse in the white paper the position of the company and the short-term trends and challenges that have arisen in the market.
