Libelium, a Spanish provider of wireless sensor network platforms for ‘Smart City’ systems, has launched Waspmote Plug & Sense!; a new line of encapsulated wireless sensor devices that allows system integrators to implement scalable, modular wireless sensor networks and reduce installation time from days to hours. The new models are pre-configured to allow the setup of applications such as Smart Cities, Smart Parking, Air Quality, Smart Security, Ambient Control and, Traffic Control, straight out of the box. The sensor nodes are ready for deployment anywhere in the world, due to their use of 2.4GHz and 868/900Mhz radio frequencies and CE, FCC and IC certification. The Waspmote units are set to send information to Meshlium, which is the company’s sensor gateway that uploads data to the internet ‘Cloud’, making the data accessible from anywhere and easy to integrate into third-party applications.
Ready to install and easy to deploy, each Waspmote Plug & Sense! mote is equipped with six connectors to which sensor probes can be attached directly, allowing services to be scalable and sustainable. The Waspmote Platform may be solar-powered to allow autonomous use. Once installed, the sensor nodes can be programmed wirelessly due to an over the air programming (OTAP) feature. Sensors can be replaced or added without having to uninstall the mote itself, keeping maintenance costs to a minimum. The wireless sensor platform includes: an IP65 enclosure for outdoor deployment; an open-source development environment and API, without software license fees; and an intuitive graphic interface programming tool.
“In the context of Smart Cities, the Waspmote Plug & Sense! platform makes adding a new sensor so easy that municipalities will not need to reinstall the network,” said David Gascon, CTO of Libelium. “We have reduced the complexity of installation with a solution that provides low-cost maintenance and a high degree of scalability, ensuring the shortest time to market for system integrators and end users.”
