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.
Air pollution countermeasures (Citizen perspective)
- ICT CityPulse
Alice has just got in her car to drive from the suburbs to the city where she works. Her GPS connects to the city traffic service and suggests a possible route with the objective of reducing air pollutant concentrations. Alice starts her trip. On the way to the city the traffic service suggests to Alice that she should park her car at a metro train station and take the metro instead. The parking fee is free, but she needs to pay for the metro ticket. The metro ticket is cheaper than the (dynamic) congestion tax imposed for high traffic areas.
