IoT applications for cities
The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to networks of technologically enabled physical objects that can communicate with each other to exchange data and interact with their external surroundings. This allows remote access and control of smart devices which has been successfully used by local governments to improve management of urban mobility issues such as waste collection, tracking of goods, and multimodal transportation.
To maximise its potential, a less technical and business-oriented approach is required. To this end, the IoTa Competence Hub is creating and conducting an online training programme that fosters lateral thinking, focuses on how to achieve a high return on investment on IoT initiatives, and challenges participants to understand in greater depth how IoT processes and systems work.
