Participatory Policies for IoT (at the Edge) Ethics

Project: Research


The project has been funded by The PETRAS National Centre of Excellence for IOT Systems Cybersecurity

The use of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies is becoming popular in many domains, including that of the public sector. IoT applications include traffic and transport management, healthcare, and waste management. A key issue which must be considered when implementing IoT solutions, particularly in public spaces, is whether questions of governance, security, transparency and accountability are addressed. Working with Lancaster City Council, this project aims to develop a new policy for transparent and ethical use of IoT and edge technology in public spaces. This will be done through the use of design methods to develop effective local policies for the governance of secure city-based IoT deployments and the resultant data; and to develop an existing transparency prototype into a fully developed tool which will support organisations in their assessment of system transparency and ethical practice.
