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.
Parking spaces real time management
- ICT CityPulse
Marina is on her way to work in the center of the Brasov city. Arriving during the rush hour she has the usual difficulty in finding a free parking space. Presently, available parking spaces are part of a "pay to park" system, which includes the possibility of paying cash to an automated machine or paying by SMS, but this doesn't help Marina find a vacant spot for her car. She imagines an improvement of the system, whereby data regarding available parking spaces is included in the payment (provided by the automated machines or through the sent SMS) via a smartphone app that would be available to her as she's driving towards the city center. This would really help her in finding an available spot. The app could even be populated with other real time useful information about various public interest activities in the city center.
