ZARAGOZA, SPAIN: Libelium, a technology leader in distributed wireless networks, announces their participation in three major wireless industry events.
The exhibitions include CeBIT 2010 in Hannover, Germany, from 2nd-6th March; Sensor+Test 2010 in Nuremberg, Germany, from 18th-20th May; and Sensors Expo & Conference 2010 in Rosemont, Illinois, USA from 7th-9th June. Libelium will demonstrate the Waspmote wireless sensor platform and the Meshlium wireless, Linux-based, multiprotocol mesh router. In addition Libelium CTO, David Gascón, will speak about both products in a series of papers and presentations.
The Waspmote wireless sensing platform is used for environmental monitoring, fire & flood detection and logistics. The platform includes a range of radio ZigBee modules with a choice of protocol versions, radio frequency and range (up to 40 km) as well as a module for GPRS which can connect a sensor network to the outside world.
The Waspmote main board contains an in-built accelerometer and when combined with the GPS module the device can be used to measure speed, direction and location of vehicles or containers. The platform has outstanding power management allowing it to be deployed in very remote locations and adverse conditions; an optional solar panel can allow almost indefinite operation.
Complementing Waspmote, the Meshlium multi-protocol, Linux-based, outdoor router enables mesh networks to be deployed in buildings, arenas, transport hubs (such as railway stations and airports), open spaces and by emergency services. The router is extremely modular with a wide choice of radio modules and a choice of disk capacity.
Meshlium uniquely supports 5 wireless standards - wifi, ZigBee, GPRS, Bluetooth and GPS – as well as wireline Ethernet. The wide choice of modules, and disks, enables the router to be configured into 177 possible variants; allowing it to be tailored to meet the needs of a specific network. With its sturdy IP65 briefcase and its optional solar panel, car battery and car lighter adaptors it can be deployed almost anywhere.
CEO Alicia Asín says: “Libelium now offers a comprehensive product range for implementing mesh and wireless sensor networks. By being present at the main industry events for sensors this spring, users in Europe and North America will have a great opportunity to view Libelium’s outstanding wireless products.”
CeBIT 2-6 March 2010, Hannover, Germany
Libelium will be exhibiting in Hall 13, Stand C84, (13). There will be live demos of the Waspmote wireless sensing platform and the Meshlium Linux multi-protocol router on the stand. Alicia Asín says, “CeBIT visitors will have the first opportunity to view a new software package for monitoring the network, managing domains and configuring Meshlium routers in a centralised way.”
On Thursday 4th March at 15:30-16:00, Libelium CTO, David Gascon, will present “Wireless Sensor Networks with Waspmote” in Hall 6, Institutional Pavilion.
On Friday 5th March at 10:45-11:30, Libelium CTO, David Gascón, will present “Meshlium, the Linux Wireless Multiprotocol Router”. This is part of CeBIT Forum Open Source in Hall 2, Stand F38.
Sensor+Test 18-20 May 2010, Nuremberg, Germany
Libelium will demonstrate its Waspmote and Meshlium products in Hall 12, stand 12-227. Every day at 13:30-13:45, Libelium will show the wireless sensor network Waspmote platform in the Action Area.
On Thursday 20th May at 9:30-10:00, Libelium CTO, David Gascón, will present “Waspmote, a Sensor Device Platform for developing Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN)” as part of Programme Hall 12.
Sensors Expo & Conference 7-9 June 2010, Rosemont, Illinois, USA
Libelium will show its Waspmote and Meshlium products in Booth #500.
On Tuesday 8 June 2010 at13:50-14:30, Libelium CTO, David Gascón, will present the paper “High-performance, low-power WSN: when Nano Amps and Long-Range links shake Hands” in the Conference Hall. This paper is jointly presented with Marco Zennaro from Italy and Antoine Bagula of South Africa.
