Libelium unveils the top 50 Internet of Things Applications

More than 50 billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020, but this new connectivity revolution has already started. Libelium publishes a compilation of 50 cutting edge Internet of Things applications grouped by vertical markets.

Zaragoza, Spain - May 1st, 2012 - The exponentially growing number of objects connected to the Internet is completely changing our world. What new business models will appear? Which processes can be optimized? How many vertical markets will benefit? Libelium, a wireless sensor networks platform provider, has released the document "50 Sensor Applications for a Smarter World. Get Inspired!" covering the most disruptive sensor and Internet of Things applications.


The list is grouped in 12 different verticals, showing how the Internet of Things is becoming the next technological revolution. It includes the most trendy scenarios, like Smart Cities where sensors can offer us services like Smart Parking - to find free parking spots in the streets - or managing the intensity of the luminosity in street lights to save energy. Climate change, environmental protection, water quality or CO2 emissions are also addressed by sensor networks and are just some of the examples included in the Smart Water and Smart Environment sections included in the document.

Other sections such as Industrial Control, Logistics or Retail cover applications more focused in process efficiency like providing information for restocking the shelves and even product placement for marketing purposes. The list is completed with applications in the verticals of Smart Metering, Security and Emergencies, Smart Agriculture, Animal Farming, Domotic and Home Automation and eHealth.

"Now we are able to collect data everywhere from our environment, infrastructures, businesses and even ourselves, and this huge amount of information is generating a new ecosystem of business opportunities around its storage, analysis and accessibility" says Libelium's CEO Alicia Asín. "We want this document to inspire people and companies with all the opportunities around the Internet of Things era" she adds.

For those interested in going deeper, a chart matching specific sensors and wireless technologies for each application has been included in the document. The final list of applications is the result of 2 years of talking to market analysts, Libelium's customers, Community developers and industry players.
