Smart cities are getting more and more attention due to urbanization and IoT trends. At the same time, 360-degree videos are also getting more popular. The watchers of 360-degree videos provide a data source that fit to the data collection aim of smart cities. This paper explores how well 360-degree video user data can be collected, using MQTT as a data transfer protocol, and analyzed with an open source IoT platform. The results suggest that using MQTT with the chosen IoT platform is convenient and general chart visualizations can provide useful insight about 360-degree video watchers. The used research method is design science.
