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.

Maria needs to get to work in a hurry. She is already a bit late and needs to be efficient when choosing the route from her house to her workplace. To do so Maria logs on to an app that aggregates data from an interactive map available on the city hall's website. The map shows various works that take place in the city as well as other types of data (stray dog present, road works, pedestrian walkways maintenance, tree trimming, traffic signaling works, etc.). When Maria inputs the start and the destination of her journey, as well as her mean of transportation (car, bike, public transport), she's provided with some alternative routes to follow, as well as the estimated time of arrival to work. The interactive map allows for citizens to input various data, and allow for real time updating of the situation in the entire city.
