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.

Hannah is on her way to work. This particular morning she's in quite a hurry because her car wouldn't start, and now she needs to catch the next bus in order to be on time. She doesn't take the bus very often, and this time she forgot to bring cash to pay for her fare. Thankfully the bus company has a new automated service, which sends Hannah a message once she gets off the bus, taxing her the correct busfare amount based on the number of zones she's crossed. The information also displays the cost per zone, and payment is performed automatically via her phone.
