The real value of the Internet of Things (IoT)—is a networked connection of physical objects which creates the link between people, processes, data, and things. With the continuous and increasing migration of world populations to urban areas, cities are facing many new challenges such as extensive traffic jams, security issues, increased pollution, and inadequate infrastructure and resource constraints. Community, Businesses, Education, Transportation and Public Safety leaders can address these problems by using intelligent networking capabilities and by increasing the overall connectedness of people and things.
