    Bus stops in the city of Seoul are about to get a huge makeover complete with air purifiers, mobile phone chargers and free wifi. Dubbed “Smart Shelters,” these special bus stops will be enclosed and equipped with air conditioning for the summer and heated chairs for the winter. Sensors using IoT will enable buses to stop at line with the door to be used for boarding to ensure passenger safety. The city of Seoul says about ten Smart Shelters will go on trial this December, and will be expanded throughout next year.
