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.

Bianca is working for the local municipality, trying to reduce the amout of pollution in the city. She is using the city's new monitoring tools, alllowing her to acces the pollution levels emitted from each household in the city collected by a range of sensors. She can even determine what sort of pollutants, whether they be chemicals, hormones or micro-pollutants. In addition the sensors collect statistical information that Bianca can use in her anti-pollution campaigns, which she can now direct specifically at targeted households or neighbourhoods, thus encouraging them to reduce pollution from their side. This in turn will influence citizens to become more eco-friendly, and waste water from each household will in time become cleaner thus requiring less processing.
