OK Google, turn on the D9 Dozer: a critical analysis of the use and potential of the Internet of Things in the practice of construction law

Friday 17 Aug 2018

We are on the cusp of a “smart device” revolution. The Internet of Things (IoT), being the connection of physical objects (such as sensors or actuators) to the internet, is growing at a rapid pace and is set to expand exponentially.

But what role will the IoT have in our professional lives in the construction industry? Will it be confined as a domestic novelty or will it have a utility which will pervade our professional sphere?

This paper will critically consider:

  • the potential role of the IoT to the construction industry generally;
  • the possible use of the IoT in the practice of construction law; and
  • any particular legal issues the use of the IoT presents in a construction context.
