Libelium has announced it will exhibit at the Cebit 2010, Sensor and Test 2010 and Sensors Expo and Conference 2010 wireless technology industry events.

Cebit 2010 will take place in Hannover, Germany from 2-6 March; Sensor and Test 2010 will take place in Nuremberg, Germany from 18-20 May; and Sensors Expo and Conference 2010 will take place in Rosemont, Illinois from 7-9 June.

At these events, Libelium will demonstrate the Waspmote wireless sensor platform and the Meshlium wireless, Linux-based, multiprotocol mesh router.

The Waspmote wireless sensing platform is used for environmental monitoring, fire and 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 40km) as well as a module for GPRS that 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 remote locations and adverse conditions; an optional solar panel allows 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 supports five wireless standards – Wi-Fi, 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 optional solar panel, car battery and car lighter adaptors, it can be deployed almost anywhere.
