If Libelium co-founder and CEO Alicia Asin has her way, smart systems enabled by her company's sensor networks eventually will swarm the world around us, enabling and automating more sustainable business decisions.

Her team has even dreamed up a comprehensive infographic that demonstrates the potential for disruptive applications enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT), including everything from smart parking to power plant safety to waste management.

"The most replicable examples are those directly related to saving costs," said the Spanish entrepreneur in a recent interview from San Francisco, where her team announced a series of relationships aimed at making it simpler to incorporate the data gathered from its sensors into existing business applications -- including vineyard management.
