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.
Route planning for logistic companies
- ICT CityPulse
At the outskirts of the city are located several depots which provide construction materials and equipment to a number of construction sites distributed around and inside the city. Several minivans are used to transport the materials and equipment according to the construction site requirements and the dispatcher approvals. The minivan drivers have to deliver the materials in the shortest time possible, so they have to reconfigure the route if a traffic jam occurs. All the agents particingpating in the traffic transmit their location to a traffic information service provider. This information is used to detect traffic jams and other unpredictable events. The transport company drivers receive notifications when a traffic jam is detected on its route.
