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.
Efficient public transport
- ICT CityPulse
- Transport, environment
Every day, traffic congestions affect thousands of citizens who move around the city. In order to ensure mobility efficiency public transport needs to be a viable alternative to private transportation. Moreover, "time lost" in traffic should become "time gained" in public transport. Based on a variety of data and control systems, public transport (PT) services should have the following: (1) Traffic light priority in congestion situation, (2) Easy access to Wi-Fi Internet on the PT vehicles, (3) Useful urban information delivered to the PT users, (4) Increased safety, especially for children, women, the elderly, etc., (5) Increased accessibility.
