ThingWorx and Waspmote
ThingWorx and Libelium are partnering to integrate their connectivity products into a single solution.
Waspmote modules along with router via Digi at $200.00+ per module.
Libelium's Waspmote platform is a an easy-to-use module meant to make sensors wireless. The idea is to plug in a sensor and transmit that information wirelessly. The platform can be programmed over the air, support up to 60 different types of sensors (not all at once), and handle many different types of communications. Those communications can be: long range such as 3G or GPRS; medium range such as Zigbee, WiFi, and 802.15.4; or short range such as Bluetooth, RFID, and NFC.
On the other hand, Thingworx's development platform is meant to ease the communication among machines, allowing sensors and various machines to interact with one another seamlessly.
"With the number of connected devices projected to grow from one billion to 50 billion over the next 10 years the number of connected solutions must expand at a similarly rapid rate. This represents a tremendous opportunity for companies that can quickly develop end-to-end solutions," said Russ Fadel, CEO and co-founder of ThingWorx, on the company's website. "Making our partners' products 'ThingWorx-Ready' exposes them to the entire ThingWorx ecosystem and further extends the 5X to 10X development efficiency advantage that a ThingWorx based solution offers."
