The Internet of Things (IoT) is beginning to have a pronounced impact on the digitalised food manufacturing chain. Whilst the food chain is becoming at once more complex and more critical, the application of IoT has begun to be recognised as a key component of this transformation. However, exactly what the IoT is, or is not, is both evolving and provoking a lively debate. New clarifiers are being added to the term such as the Internet of Industrial Things and the Autonomous Internet of Things to ostensibly help clarify the terminology. For the purposes of the Internet of Food Things Network Plus, our conceptual and physical platform is predicated on the idea of a secure and trustworthy network based on open standards, where-possible commodity devices, and underpinned by societally ratified regulatory arrangements.
