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.
Hazardous material transport accident
- ICT CityPulse
"2Fast" is a package delivery company with clients in chemical and biotechnology industries. One day one of the company's trucks gets involved in an accident with other vehicles falling over and causing fire. The city operation center (OC) receives an alarm raised by a surveillance camera on the street, as well as sensors on the truck, and assesses the severity. OC requests information about the truck and its goods and performes a classification of the fire. Based on the obtained info, the OC is able to notify the right city authorities (police, ambulance, fire fighters) and provide all the gathered information on the incident. This quickly allows for the appropriate rescue facilities to be engaged as well as controlling diversion of traffic, notification to the public, and evacuation of people nearby.
