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.
Automated social networking
- ICT CityPulse
Tom is using a new application on his phone that assists him in being as visible as possible on his social networks. The application automatically gathers some information about the events of his daily life using sensor networks. More and more people have an online diary (e.g. Facebook or blog), allowing their friends and family members to view their activities and interests on a regular basis. Tom is a part of this wave and is updating his status during the day semi-automatically. Thanks to sensors in his mobile phone, room, and on his body, pictures/sounds and video clips captured with his mobile are uploaded to the secure blog server at regular intervals. His location is tracked in real time and updated, his activities are logged, and his emotional states are translated into icons.
