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.
Intelligent public transport
- ICT CityPulse
It's Monday morning and Michael has just left his apartment on his way to college. Minutes after leaving he receives a message on his mobile phone that a bus, going in his direction, will pass him in a few minutes. He chooses to find a good spot to stop the bus using a simple gesture with your mobile phone. Scheduled timetables are something of the past. Public transport now reacts to the passengers' needs. The public transport is a network of nodes that measures supply and demand and over time adjusts itself to the demand side moving away from the periodic survey based update of scheduled timetables.
