The Internet of Things is a nascent market where organizations can get connected with human among physical objects, setting up cloud-connected devices which allow to send and receive orders or data (Jackson, 2014). It also refers to a dramatic development to the functions of Internet which enables communication through sensored networks (Ferber,2013).
In fact, according to the Ferber’s projections, 75 percent of the world populations will have access to the Internet and more than six billion devices as interconnected global system includes goods, objects, machines, appliances, buildings, vehicles, animals, people, plants and soil (Barrett, 2012). Specifically, they are including computer networks, sensors, actuators and devices which use Internet protocols and also referred to as the next generation of Internet (Ferber, 2013).
What is more importantly influential to us is, the Internet of things has changed our lives of living when ‘things’ are connected with the Internet and become active (Julian Bleecker). There’s a short video clip of how IoT changes our lives without saying a yes to them.
However, due to the Internet of things has a dramatic effect not only on our daily routines but also governance. The United State is now advocating a new data-based way to play a new rule or regulation to their citizens as governance which defined as ‘algorithmic regulation’ (Morozow, 2014). The cases of accidents or cars stolen have gradually increasing, referring to the database from Sperry Rand Corporation. The technology pioneers in the US are considering to build a built-in mechanism in cars markets in order to stop vehicles remotely. Jim Farley, a senior of Ford executive says that,
“we know everyone who breaks the law, we know when you’re doing it. We have GPS in your car, so we know what you’re doing. By the way, we don’t supply that data to anyone.”
What they are really doing is that, they get ‘smart’ in cars and roads where the authorities can prevent the crime instead of waiting you as drivers to break the rules. The United States works with other organizations such as Ofcom envisions which promises a central control of traffic system which can impose variable speed limits to smooth the flow of driving or to manage the speed of accelerating (Morozov, 2014).
In April, Apple technology deploys a chip or sensor into the smartphones to analyse if the car is moving and if the person is using phone while driving. This functions when two actions are met at the same time, it simply blocks the texting features of smart phone. Furthermore, Intel and Ford are working on the face recognition of the drivers whether to prevent the car being used or in order to send a picture of owners to activate the car engines (Morozov, 2014).
