Seoul City turns to IoT in solving urban problems

The Seoul Metropolitan Government is seeking to solve urban problems by turning to new and existing Internet of Things technologies, a Seoul city official said Wednesday.

In efforts to improve the safety and quality-of-life of Seoulites, the city government has made an aggressive investment of 2.7 billion won ($2.54 million) into 12 sites across the city from its yearly budget.

A carbon monoxide sensor will be attached inside all tents at the city-owned camping grounds in order to prevent fire smoke-induced asphyxiation. When the carbon monoxide level exceeds a certain level, an alarm detecting potential fire will be sent to the system manager.
