Street Repairs, Together we can fix Britain.

Friday 17 January, 2014
Street Repairs is a revolutionary new way of connecting local people to local authorities, councils and highway and transport bodies, on a nationwide scale, empowers residents to improve their local environment, while saving local authorities money in maintenance and administrative costs. www.streetrepairs.co.uk is a publicly accessible, transparent reporting and monitoring system which hands power over to local residents, by making it easy to report faults and track the council's progress in addressing them.

With Street Repairs, reporting is made simple and easy, thanks to a mobile-friendly website, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Anyone with a camera enabled smartphone can report a fault the moment they notice it. To submit a report, the user simply goes to the site and completes a handful of information fields, then pinpoints the exact location of the fault using the adaptive mapping feature. This process takes just a couple of minutes and there is no fee to the fault-reporter. Confirmation of the report is sent immediately to the sender by text and email, and regular updates are made as the report is processed by the council.

Since it's launch in December 2013 street repairs has gained a large following through social media platforms including facebook.

The MD of street repairs Mr Colin Mahoney stated "we never envisaged that we would receive so much support in such a short space of time from the general public, it just goes to show the powerful feelings British people have about fixing our country. Street Repairs is used to capture information about street maintenance issues such as potholes, fly tipping, graffiti and damaged pavements. If it can be repaired or cleaned, then it can be reported through Street Repairs ". He went on to say " together we are stronger together we can fix Britain".

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
