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.

Amanda is walking home alone one night, and enters an area she's not too familiar with, and doesn't feel entirely safe. Amanda is equipped with a body sensor network that detects her fear, which immediately instructs her mobile phone to send alert messages in order to ensure a mobile security monitoring. The messages from the phone are being sent to security officers in the nearby area (security guards, nearby police officers etc), and Amanda thus feels safer moving through the area.
