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.
Social Car Parking

Abdi and Jim both use the same car park when arriving near their respective workplaces. They don't know each other, but the modern car park they both use is equipped with an automated valet parking system that registers the arrival time of all cars and checks their origin of travel. This is done by checking the registration of the car with the owners home address. A simple algorithms suggests car pooling between people living close to each other, and arriving at the car park roughly at the same time on the same days. Abdi and Jim soon find out about each other and make contact, resulting in them driving to work together more often than not.
