To really understand the Internet of Things (IoT) requires application, implementation, and execution in the real world. IEEE IoT recently launched a program to provide the IoT community an interactive platform on which to engage with use cases, service descriptions, business models, and reference implementations that will be key to developing a vibrant IoT industry. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to contribute to the IoT cause, as well as get excellent exposure for your projects and ideas.
Mobile application for smart meters
Imagine if consumers were able to use their smartphones to remotely read their electricity consumption or shut down the heating in their house, for example. The Energy Service Providers will use the smart energy meters to remotely read the power consumption in order to send the invoice to the consumers, in turn allowing them greater control of the amount of energy being spent by their home.
