Improving safety and reducing congestion through data.

Cities improve safety and reduce congestion on public transport using the Internet of Things.

For instance, cities can analyse the number of passengers to tweak transport timetables. This could help ensure that there are a sufficient number of buses and trains on popular routes.

This even works with public transport infrastructure that is decades old. IoT makes it easier for old and new systems to communicate with each other so cities can take advantage of data-driven transportation.

Cities can also generate more revenue from new services on public transport, like on-demand videos for passengers and advertisement spaces.
