ParadeTalk: Innovative Interactions between Parade and Audiences using IoT

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper describes ParadeTalk, an IoT based system that allows innovative interactions between parade floats and audiences. By using the sensors and the actuators of AgriTalk, a commercially operated smart agriculture solution, we implement ParadeTalk in the Singpoli parade float of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses in California, USA. We describe how the sensors/controls are connected to the objects in the parade float. We hope that parade audiences will learn basic ideas of smart farming in the rose decorated float when they enjoy interacting with the float. We also analyze how the delays of the IoT messages affect the interaction between the parade flow and the audience members. ParadeTalk is a success story
that implements a sustainable IoT application commercially operated.
