Welcome to 'the cloud of things'

Video courtesy ClouT project.

By enabling almost any devices to be interconnected, 'the internet of things' (IoT) has great potential to increase the smartness of cities and city life. IoT devices can capture data not only about temperature, air quality, and movement, but also about user preferences, intentions, medical conditions, and so on.

The ClouT project is a collaboration between Europe and Japan that seeks to exploit all possible information sources to make cities smarter and help them to face emerging challenges, such as efficient energy management, economic growth, and development.

Find out more about the ClouT project in our feature article 'Cloud gives citizens more ClouT in smart cities'.
