  3. 3. @ClaroPartners #iotlab IoT Lab for Social Good: The Approach Explore Ideate + Pitch Develop Prototype Present Explore potential challenges, and choose a starting point for their IoT concept Ideate around the starting point, and choose and pitch an IoT enabled solution that the team will develop further Build out the details of the concept: service diagram, tech considerations, physical & digital aspects, business model etc. Prototype the product and service to demonstrate how it works and its value to people Present concept to the rest of the Lab participants in the closing session

  5. 5. @ClaroPartners #iotlab Smart Bottle Challenge: People want to know the quality of the water they encounter and if it is safe to drink Concept: Smart Bottle has various sensors that take a reading of the water inside, including measurements like the temperature and pH level. The combination of these readings indicate to the user through a red or green light whether the water is safe to drink or not. The different data from the reading is sent to the cloud, together with the location of the water source. Users can access a map on a mobile or web app to find good quality drinking water, and third parties (government, etc.) can access the aggregated data to understand water quality across the country. Value: The individual is given useful knowledge in the moment, and the data generated and published can help to create transparency around water quality levels, which may lead to pressure for governments to improve it. Curious?
  6. 6. @ClaroPartners #iotlab Internet of Broken Things Challenge: People want to extract the full value out of their belongings, from broken technology to items they’ve replaced Concept: IoBT (Internet of Broken Things) is a platform on which people can list their broken or unwanted products. On uploading a picture of the item (or identifying it online through scanning the barcode or RFID, etc.), the user is presented with the option to fix the device themselves, get in contact with someone local that has the skills to fix it, or offer it to someone else who can make use of it in another way. Value: The platform helps to reduce waste, get value from broken or unwanted objects and creates a community. Curious?
  7. 7. @ClaroPartners #iotlab Super Ed Challenge: Motivate school children to work harder, and use an online education and testing platform Concept: Lamps show the progress of the pupils by visualising their performance data in coloured LEDs. The light configuration is shaped by the data which comes from the online education and testing platform the pupils use. A small home lamp shows an individual pupil’s progress for the family to see and a larger lamp in the classroom indicates the performance of the whole class. Classes with their own lamps can compete with each other, and the teachers can see the overall success of each. Value: Pupils are motivated by seeing their progress in a delightful, tangible way. Curious?
  8. 8. @ClaroPartners #iotlab Smart Drop Challenge: Encourage people to reduce their water footprint and give them actionable ways to do so Concept: Smartphone app that enables users to see their water consumption over time. A sensor on each tap can be identified with a user’s smartphone; the water flowing through the tap is measured and the data sent to the cloud. The initial use case would be in hotels where water consumption is significantly high. Guests who met certain water-saving goals during their stay would receive rewards like free drinks or a discount on their hotel bill. Each person’s water footprint would be linked to a profile that could be activated in any hotel, bar, restaurant, and could potentially extend to monitor personal consumption of electricity and other resources. Value: People are motivated to reduce their water consumption. Apart from being good for the environment, water bills for individuals/hotels would also be significantly lowered. Curious?
  9. 9. @ClaroPartners #iotlab Jabberbug Challenge: Bars in cities like Barcelona can produce a lot of noise pollution which disturbs neighbours and incur fines for the bar owners. Concept: Sensors placed in people’s homes pick up sounds in the vicinity. When the resident feels the bar is making too much noise, they can press a button in their home (or use the smartphone app) to transmit a complaint to the bar owner. The bar owner sees a warning light turn on or receives a message printed out of a small printer specifically for the task and needs to press a button to acknowledge the complaint. They can then choose how to act on it Value: Less noise pollution from neighbourhood bars, achieved in a non-confrontational way. The data from the system can also be analysed to identify problem areas by the police, potential house buyers or neighbours. Curious?
