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.

Sensors have recently been placed all over the city. Nina works as a city official in the urban planning department, and is now able to log on to the system and see historical data regarding different substances in the air and meteorological parameters, including noise levels, in all areas of the city. This information helps her to make decisions such as where to plan new residential areas, more green areas (parks), industrial zones, etc. If Nina notices elevated levels of harmful substances in certain districts, a notification can be sent to the city's Inspection Department to check the source of the pollution.
