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.
Remote water network monitoring
- ICT CityPulse
Wireless communication networks are a cost-efficient way for remotely controlling industrial facilities and infrastructures: Pressure sensors are located along gas/oil pipelines. Abrupt change of pressure provokes automatic closing of lines. Sensors are placed on each section, depending on the architecture and risk assessment. If there is an oil spill or anything similar, the water lines nearby will automatically close off, ensuring no contamination.
