Abstract: This is a joint meeting with the BCS Green IT SG
The BCS Green IT Specialist Group is taking forward an initiative to raise awareness of the Internet of Things and the issues this new technology raises. Last year we developed a demonstrator for the IoT using simple and cheap technologies including sensors and Arduino and Raspberry PI processors, typically available through retail outlets such as Maplin. We have now worked with a small team at Leeds Beckett University to produce a 45 min video of that demonstrator and to explore the wider context and challenges presented by the IoT
I will provide some background on IoT and then run the video and lead a discussion about IoT its impacts, opportunities and challenges including security and privacy issues and opportunities IoT for managing environment and our lives.
