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.

Anna makes a trip to the National Art Gallery. At the entrance she chooses the enhanced experience tour and gets equipped with special gear. The gear consists of a headset, and body sensors, which she attaches to her body. She starts the tour by browsing the different pictures in the contemporary arts section. She points at a picture, which she is interested in and asks questions to obtain more information. As Anna is listening to the information, a crowd of other visitors enters the room and the noise level rises significantly. The system initially increases the volume, but also notices Anna's distress, once it reaches a certain threshold. As a result, it continues to provide the information in a written form on a PDA instead. The system notices the impact of different pictures during her visit and records this in a personal profile. Based on the observations it proposes other pictures she might like and guides her to the respective locations. At the end of the visit, the system proposes alternative venues for future visits. It also provides the user experience as an anonymous feedback to the art gallery's curator.
