As part of the Commerce Department’s Digital Economy Agenda, NTIA is initiating an inquiry regarding the Internet of Things (IoT) to review the current technological and policy landscape.
NTIA seeks broad input from all interested stakeholders — including the private industry, researchers, academia, and civil society — on the potential benefits and challenges of these technologies and what role, if any, the U.S. Government should play in this area.
After analyzing the comments, the Department intends to issue a “green paper” that identifies key issues impacting deployment of these technologies, highlights potential benefits and challenges, and identifies possible roles for the federal government in fostering the advancement of IoT technologies in partnership with the private sector.
Comments are due on or before 5 p.m. Eastern Time on May 23.
The RFC was published in the Federal Register and is embedded below.
