Internet of Things
mr. dr. Tijmen Wisman
The EU has set a digital agenda for a phenomenon they refer to as the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT). This is not a clear-cut concept. It means that the internet will advance from a network of computers towards a network of things. Smartphones are a good example, but also smart washing machines and electricity meters prove that computing power is extending the traditional limits of the pc. The aim of the research is to assess the foreseeable impact of EU policy with regard to the IoT on the private sphere of the home. In addition this impact will be tested against the European laws concerning privacy.
