The internet of things: policy and technology priorities
Following vast increases in machine-to-machine (m2m) communications and at a time when public and private organisations are testing a variety of innovative applications – ranging from sensors that monitor the behaviour of cities, to dynamic information for road users and rural broadband in hard-to-reach places.
Delegates will assess – in the context of policy development, and opportunities for businesses, communities and consumers in the UK – the potential of connected devices and networks, including the benefits and outstanding issues related to connected homes and Intelligent Transport Systems (ITSs) which utilise creative application of wireless sensors and collected data to create improved services and new revenue streams. Planned sessions include perspectives from competing wireless technologies, standards and security as well as the regulatory and commercial factors crucial for the UK to take a lead internationally in the development of an internet of things.
