Internet of Things in Tourism: A Proposal of the Information System for Cappadocia Hot-Air Ballooning
Ibrahim Akın Özen (Faculty of Tourism, Nevşehir Hacı Bektas Veli University, Turkey)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-1989-9.ch007
With the revolution of Industry 4.0, the technologies that enter our daily lives are based on smart devices, applications, and platforms with internet connection. A wide range of these technologies collected under one umbrella is known as IoT (internet of things). This chapter evaluates the stages of a touristic travel in smart tourism destinations by considering IoT architecture. The technologies used in these phases and their contributions to the tourism sector and tourists are examined. In the implementation section, an IoT-based information system is proposed for Cappadocia hot air balloon tours. The main purpose of the system is to determine whether the appropriate weather conditions are formed before the hot air balloon flights. The proposed system allows for the automation and evaluation of data already collected using traditional methods. With the implementation of the system; work and time savings can be achieved, and more accurate measurements will make safe flights.
