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.

Alice trains to participate in a marathon later this year. She slips into her sports clothes and attaches the sensors of her body area network. They will measure humidity, heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature while she is running. She puts on her sensor equipped jogging shoes that embed humidity, pressure and activity sensors for her feet. Finally, she also puts her mobile phone in her pocket and activates the personal trainer agent (PTA) that monitors her activities and controls the sensors in her clothes, body area and shoes. The PTA can suggest improvements or training sets to enhance Alice's agility or strength. Using actuators such as vibrators or sound, the PTA can also provide feedback and helps Alice to improve her movements.
