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.
Made with Aarhus
- ICT CityPulse
Now that the city of Aarhus has a full-blown open data portal with all sorts of static and real time data from the city, citizens are developing more applications and services than ever. In helping developers getting their services out, and making sure that the quality is sufficient, the city is now facilitating a branding procedure. This means that a service can be branded with "Made with Aarhus". When having this mark, the service meets certain criteria and is quality approved from the municipality. By having this branding procedure, Aarhus gets branded (if the specific service is good enough), and the service itself will have a higher integrity. This entails that citizens might be more willing to try it out and pay more for the service. Furthermore, developers might get exclusive access to specific data, if they consent to the criteria - they might get actual real time access to data for faster reactions and event detection.
