1. Augmented reality (AR) has emerged as a game-changer in various industries, and the tourism sector is no exception. By seamlessly blending the real world with digital enhancements, AR reshapes how travellers experience new destinations and attractions. Imagine a picturesque coastal town known for its historical landmarks and natural beauty. The local tourism board has adopted AR technology to enhance visitors’ exploration. Travellers with AR-enabled devices can use dedicated apps to uncover hidden historical facts, access virtual guides, and even witness historical events overlaid onto their current surroundings. This immersive experience has garnered significant interest among tourists seeking a more interactive and informative journey. Discuss how augmented reality can transform the tourism experience by overlaying digital content onto real-world environments. How does this technology elevate the engagement level of travellers, provide informative insights, and offer a unique perspective on historical landmarks and attractions? When using AR apps, tourists may inadvertently share their real-time location data, preferences, and interactions with the platform. What privacy concerns are associated with collecting and potentially sharing this sensitive information? (10 marks)
2. India’s ambitious Smart Cities Mission aims to transform urban landscapes into technologically advanced and efficient ecosystems by integrating Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. This initiative envisions creating cities that are more sustainable, connected, and responsive to citizens’ needs. As part of the Smart Cities Mission, a metropolitan city in India has embarked on a comprehensive IoT-driven transformation. Various applications of IoT have been deployed to address urban challenges and enhance the quality of life for its citizens. Smart traffic management, waste management, energy efficiency, and public safety solutions are critical aspects of this IoT-driven urban transformation. Describe any three IoT applications that can be incorporated into a smart city context. (10 marks)
