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.

During the Olympic Games, a smoke sensor within the stadium is triggered, and the data is soon confirmed by another sensor in the same area. As soon as the incident location is known, an evacuation of the area is prepared. To do so, the games' central command needs to immediately modify the transportation routes throughout the area to both avoid the incident area and to free up capacity to absorb the sudden surge in load on the network (pedestrian, road, underground, rail), if the evacuation is carried out. The central command center invokes the appropriate emergency plan to enforce these changes (evacuation of major venues are pre-planned), and requests data feeds from the relevant sensor networks to be made available to monitor the effects of the plan in real time, in order to assist with decisions around timing and method, should evacuation be required.
