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.
Smart sun protection
- ICT CityPulse
Jules is on the beach with his little daughter, Pauline, of 2 years. Pauline loves sand and sun as all small children do. However, children have very sensitive skin and despite high protection sun lotion there is always a risk of sunburn. Pauline has a small UV sensor on her cap which allows Jules's mobile phone to monitors the amount of UV radiation by getting measurement information from the sensor. The Sunburn Protection application on the phone sets an alarm when it is time to go to the shade. The safe time in the sun is calculated according to the amount of UV radiation, the age of the person, the skin type, the pigment level and previous suntan.
