Technology now offers the possibility of delivering a vast range of low-cost people-centric services to citizens. Internet of Things (IoT) supporting technologies are becoming robust, viable and cheaper. Mobile phones are increasingly more powerful and disseminated. On the other hand, social networks and virtual worlds are experiencing an exploding popularity and have millions of users. These low-cost technologies can now be used to create an Internet of People (IoP), a dynamically configurable integration platform of connected smart objects that allows enhanced, people-centric applications. As opposed to things-centric ones, IoP combines the real, sensory world with the virtual world for the benefitof people while it also enables the development of sensing applications in contexts such as e-health, sustainable mobility, social networks enhancement or fulfilling people’s special needs. This paper identifies the main challenges, a possible approach, and key enabling technologies for a people-centric society based on the Internet of Things.
