A great idea in theory, but it presumes that everyone who has a bluetooth interface on their phone or car is using it. I tend to only turn mine on when I need to use it as opposed to having it on 24/7.
I agree. The system is either not fully explained, or there are some serious issues to be worked through. However, there definitely needs to be major improvement in the measurement of traffic flows, both vehicular and pedestrian in most cities, and in the control of that traffic flow, and the more systems and ideas we have to that end will lead to doing those things better.
Given size of the bluetooth radio coverage, there will be a large quantity of bluetooth receivers needed to be installed. The big city which has more than 3 lanes will be a challenge as well. In downtown area, how does the system filter out pedestrians?
Will look forward to the reports from those two Smart Cities Events. If a person carries multiple blue-tooth enabled devices in a car...won't cause the system to detect misleading info about the traffic? May be I don't understand this system yet.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
