Nancy W Mendoza: New £24 million "Internet of Things" research hub announced

A new collaboration should ensure that the UK remains a global leader in the "Internet of Things".

The “Internet of Things” (IoT) describes a world where the physical objects around us – everything from heart pacemakers to fridges – are connected via digital networks. The PETRAS IoT Hub will explore the technical, ethical and social issues associated with these networks. It aims to make the UK the world’s best place to develop and deploy new internet technologies.
