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.
Impact of public utilities works
- ICT CityPulse
The city's gas company needs to check and replace some of the pipes located on a street relevant for public service. When engaging in such operations near safety issues are needed to secure the access to the neighboring school, impact on correlated public networks, public transportation, and provisioning of affected citizens and businesses. Since such work might affect the stakeholders on a different degree and timeline, the plan of the work should be coordinated by the city hall office, insuring lowest impact on affected ones and shortest time to complete. In order to do so the city hall will manage a smartphone app, which notifies citizens of the current opeartion of the gas company.The app displays the status of progress in order to help affected citizens properly plan their activities and fallback plans.
