IoT Around Us: Adoption and Acceptability

IoT Around Us: Adoption and Acceptability

How can fiction and design help us to explore the Internet of Things? The IoTUK and PETRAS partnership continues with our video IoT Around Us: Adoption and Acceptability.

The Internet of Things is beginning to make changes in all sectors, in all parts of the UK and across the world. From applications on the factory floor, in shops, in the doctor’s surgery and in people’s homes, the technology is being used to make changes to how we understand ourselves and how we control the world around us. With everything from smart fridges and kettles that you can control from your desk, through to self-driving cars and lorries, drones that can deliver your shopping or can monitor traffic and parking – the connected future is going to means changes to everyone’s lives.

But how do we ensure that the bright future the IoT promises can become a reality? Professor Paul Coulton and his team at the University of Lancaster are working on just that. As part of PETRAS, the university consortium exploring privacy, ethics, trust, reliability, adoption and security and the IoT, the team at Imagination Lancaster are exploring the applications and adoption of IoT around us in projects like Polly the Kettle and their Game of Drones videos.

To find out what they are getting up to and what it means for you, watch our video ‘IoT Around Us: Adoption and Acceptability’.
