Libelium has released new Smart Logistics modules for Waspmote sensor nodes that provide position, sensing and transmission capabilities to enable real time tracking, via 3G, GPS and GPRS. These new modules for Waspmote and Plug & Sense! devices can read geolocation coordinates, collect extra sensor data such as humidity, luminosity, CO, CO2, temperature, or vibration, then send all the information to a web or Cloud server.

Smart Logistics applications include continuous vehicle fleet tracking, container goods control, and asset management, or other location-based services.

To guide developers, Libelium has created libraries detailing GPS and sensor data transmission, and an example of how to integrate information gathered with geographic information systems such as Google GIS, Axeda or ESRI. A step-by-step tutorial on geopositioning with the Google Maps API is also available in the technical guides published by Libelium.

“We design our hardware and systems for low-power consumption, a prerequisite for any logistics control network that collects and transmits data to the Cloud in real time,” said David Gascón, CTO at Libelium. “Our sensor devices are battery powered with a life time of several years so they allow really easy maintenance when installed in vehicles and containers.”
