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.
Open Data Toolkit
- ICT CityPulse
Robert lives in Aarhus and spends his sparetime tinkering with the creation of apps that can benefit himself and his fellow citizens. He uses the new Open Data Toolkit provided by the city. The toolkit challenges the traditional role of citizens, the public sector and the private sector. Among other things, it creates a new way of collaborating and creating public services. It's an alternative way of solving and addressing societal challenges and can be a part to strengthen the digital economy and creating jobs. It's empowering the people. Robert uses the Open Data Toolkit, and open data from the Open Data platform in Aarhus, to develop an app to car drivers in Aarhus. Using the toolkit he can learn how to use the Open Data platform, use certain formats/APIs, collaborate with the city, etc.
