The Commerce Department is seeking nominations for an Internet of Things Advisory Board to assist a federal working group on issues related to the increasing connectivity of devices and networks.

The Internet of Things Advisory Board will advise the recently established Internet of Things Working Group. The board will include 16 members, each of whom will serve for two years.

“The Internet of Things is already transforming our world, providing detailed information that can improve air quality, traffic congestion, medical care and more,” said Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo. “We would like this board to represent a broad spectrum of IoT experts from industry, academia and nonprofit organizations who can provide advice on IoT ranging from rural concerns to transportation, security and health care topics.”

The board will address issues such as:

  • Federal regulations, programs, and policies that can either promote or inhibit IoT developments
  • Situations where IoT could “deliver significant and scalable economic and societal benefits to the United States”
  • Challenges and opportunities IoT presents to small businesses
  • Any international opportunities related to IoT

Nominations for the board are due by Feb. 28.
