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.

Allocation of green areas is a very important part of the health and quality of life in a city. Green areas and parks are also vital for citizens' health and they can promote outdoor activities and exercises like jogging. Not every city, though, has the opportunity to provide green areas that are wide enough for habitual joggers and runners, and some type of training would require people to exercise between green areas and trafficated areas. Larry has a very sedentary job and he really cares about health and fitness for himself and for his family. Larry jogs three times a week, and he likes to do it outside during the spring and summer months. Given the outline of an exercise plan (e.g. number of calories or distance or time, means - bike vs. walk), Larry's SmartFit Navigation assistant can dynamically suggest him the best path to take, considering the level of CO2, the weather conditions (wind, rain) and his own fitness plan, so that his health and benefits from the exercise are maximized. His biomedical parameters are also taken into account so that if he decides to run faster, a cleaner or less crowded area can be suggested. On Sundays, Larry likes to go biking with his wife and his young daughter, and he can customize SmartFit Navigation assistant to suggest appropriate paths for cycling that can help safeguard his health and the health of his family.
