FLIR Systems Completes Acquisition of Endeavor Robotics
FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced today that it has completed its previously announced acquisition of Endeavor Robotic Holdings, Inc., a leading developer of battle-tested, tactical unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) for the global military, public safety, and critical infrastructure markets, from Arlington Capital Partners for $382 million in cash.
Based outside Boston and formerly known as iRobot Defense & Security, Endeavor has shipped more than 7,000 UGVs to customers in over 55 countries. Endeavor’s highly-mobile and easy to operate ground robots utilize advanced sensing and actuation in providing explosive ordnance disposal, reconnaissance, inspection, and hazardous materials support for troops, police, and industrial users at stand-off range. Endeavor is one of the largest UGV providers to the United States (U.S.) Department of Defense (DoD), and a key supplier of unmanned systems for the accelerating modernization of global military and law enforcement operational assets.
“With the addition of Endeavor, FLIR becomes a leading provider of unmanned aerial and ground solutions to support the needs of warfighters, and public safety and critical infrastructure professionals,” said Jim Cannon, President and CEO of FLIR Systems. “We are pleased to welcome Endeavor to the FLIR team and look forward to driving our mission to innovate technologies that help save lives and livelihoods.”
Endeavor is now part of the FLIR Government and Defense Business Unit’s Unmanned Systems and Integrated Solutions division. The transaction is expected to be $0.03 dilutive to FLIR Systems’ 2019 adjusted earnings per share due to borrowing costs associated with funding the transaction, and accretive thereafter.

Libelium Integrates Radar Technology with its IoT Devices for Smart Parking Applications27.5.2019 11:00:00 EEST | Tiedote
Aiming to meet the growing demand for greater precision in smart parking devices, Libelium, the Spanish manufacturer of hardware and IoT solutions, has integrated radar technology in detecting the availability of parking spaces. The new Smart Parking node improves detection and stability performance thanks to a radar sensor which allows precise detection (99%) of vehicles parked over the device that sends the data to the cloud through the LoRaWAN network. IoT technology applied to the detection of parking places can reduce traffic, save fuel, decrease CO 2 emissions and improve the driving experience and habitability of cities. In addition, smart parking devices are being highly demanded by municipalities to check rotation levels in restricted parking areas (taxis, loading and unloading, recharging electric vehicles and disabled areas). First real deployment is already taking place in the city of Huesca (Northern Spain) where 190 nodes are being installed to detect the occupation of pa
