Most people will be familiar with ‘Find my iPhone’ or the Android ‘Find my Device’ – so you understand the concept of GPS tracking. A common question that we are asked is how IoT Asset tracking is different from the technology that you have on your phone? Although there are similarities, asset-tracking is a more specialist application with different requirements. In this article, we will describe some of the features and capabilities of IoT asset tracking with LoRa and 4G technology.
We regularly speak to customers who have a requirement to measure turbidity levels in water supplies, rivers and other bodies of water. IoT is a powerful and cost-effective way to measure turbidity and transmit the results for analysis, visualisation and reporting.
Turbidity is the loss of transparency, cloudiness or haziness of fluid due to the presence of particles that are invisible to the human eye. These suspended solids cause the water to appear murkier, as the turbidity increases. Smart water solutions and IoT have specialist sensors that can measure turbidity levels.
Smart Water solutions use IoT (Internet of Things) technologies to monitor and measure water quality, conserve water supplies and enable cities to function efficiently. In this article, we outline four examples of how Libelium Plug&Sense can be used for Smart Water applications. The following examples demonstrate several implementations of the technology, and we outline how it can be used to enhance decision making, monitor trends and generate alerts.

Traditional firewalls that had UTM-type functionality (e.g. Web filtering, Intrusion Prevention, Antivirus) that often suffered from a poor performance such as low throughput, latency and inconsistent accuracy. As firewall technology evolved, as did their performance and scanning capabilities. The Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) term was coined to define a firewall that met the following criteria: Read more
The Alliance for Parking Data Standards (APDS) has commenced a project that will see the creation of new data standards that will revolutionise parking. The combination of Smart Parking, IoT and these new data standards will change the way we park; available parking spaces, pricing and permitted times will be communicated in real-time.
