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.
Improvement of GIS real time information through smartphone apps

Stefan works for the city hall and is tasked with reporting newly occuring infrastructure problems suchs as pot holes, water network malfunctions etc. This means he has to show up at the incident sites and report an accurate location to the city's Geographical Information System system. In order to do so correctly he needs a device to show him the location through GPS. Previously, Stefan was not always able to bring a functional GPS device resulting in less accurate information for the city's technicians to work with. Now Stefan simply has to use the newly developed app on his smartphone, allowing him to always report the incidents via GPS. The app is also available to ordinary citizens, who in turn helps report these problems thus solving them quicker. The city hall can now easily get an overview of all incidents, send repair crews on their way, and inform citizens of the incident sites via various real time solutions.
