Libelium has been selected to participate in the Adoptive Gateways for Diverse Multiple Environments (AGILE) project, a project funded by the European Commission – H2020 ICT30 Program. Libelium will collaborate in AGILE project as Hardware Manufacturer for the maker’s version of the gateway. Libelium will develop a modular, inexpensive, multi-technology gateway for IoT devices. In addition, Libelium will assist in the dissemination and exploitation of the project through the existing client community and will also lead the crowdfunding campaign for AGILE.

AGILE is a project funded by the European Commission – H2020 ICT30 Program. The total funding for the project is 6.857.550€ over three years and includes a consortium of 17 organizations, including CREATE-NET (Italy), iMinds VZW(Belgium), Eclipse Foundation Europe GmbH (Germany), ATOS Spain SA (Spain), Canonical Group Limited (United Kingdom), Rulemotion Ltd (United Kingdom), Jolocom UG (Germany), Universität Passau (Germany), Sky-Watch (Denmark), BioAssist SA (Greece), MOBISTAR SA (Belgium), Startupbootcamp (Spain), Technische Universität Graz (Austria), INRIA (France), EUROTECH SPA (Italy), Libelium (Spain), and IoTango S.A. (United States).

The EU ICT30-2015 programme is the European programme for “Internet of Things and Platforms for Connected Smart Objects”. ICT 30-2015 cuts across several technological areas (smart systems integration, cyber-physical systems, smart networks, big data) and brings together different generic ICT technologies and their stakeholder constituencies to develop technological platforms that will have a strong influence on the way in which we live and work.

AGILE aims to develop the software and hardware required to build modular gateway solutions for managing the devices and data in IoT solutions. It will support the local management of devices, data, app development, and runtime, and include security features that allow users to share data in a trusted way. The AGILE technology will be based on existing open source projects and create new open source technology to complete the solution. The AGILE project will also feature the integration of an IoT apps Marketplace to help facilitate a diverse ecosystem of extensions and plugins. Finally, AGILE will be used in five diverse Pilots in various domains (QuantifiedSelf, Smart Retails, Open Air monitoring using Drones, etc.) and be supported by an IoT Testbed, featuring more than 2500 sensors, to facilitate testing of IoT solutions.

The AGILE project will leverage the skills, expertise, and technology of Libelium to create a sustainable and diverse community supporting the AGILE technology. The goal of AGILE is to create an ecosystem of large commercial technology companies, small start-ups, research institutions and individuals that 1) creates innovative solutions and extensions using the AGILE technology and 2) reinvest in the ongoing development of the AGILE technology. Libelium designs and manufactures hardware for wireless sensor networks and a complete software development kit (SDK) so that system integrators, engineering, and consultancy companies can deliver reliable Internet of Things (IoT), M2M, and Smart Cities solutions with minimum time to market. Waspmote—Libelium’s wireless sensor platform—is modular and ready to integrate with key Cloud systems (Azure by Microsoft, B-Scada, DeviceLynk, Devicify, Element Blue, Esri, IBM Bluemix, IoTSens, Sentilo, Sofía2 by Indra, Solvver, Telefonica, Thing +, ThingWorx), and low-energy IoT connectivity protocols (LoRa, MQTT, Sigfox). Over 2,000 developers from 90 countries in companies ranging from startups to universities to large international corporations have adopted Libelium’s technology for projects in five continents. Commercial deployments based on Waspmote include applications as varied as parking, traffic congestion, environmental monitoring, water quality and precision agriculture.

Gartner named Libelium a Cool Vendor in embedded software and systems in 2014. Established in 2006, Libelium is privately held and has headquarters in Zaragoza, Spain.
