The road map lays out tasks related to each action in the context of five lines of effort:
- 1. Internet of Things
- 2. Enterprise
- 3. Internet infrastructure
- 4. Technology Development and Transition; and
- 5. Awareness and Education.
Some tasks will be the direct responsibility of the federal government, while others are specific to the private sector. Some tasks do not directly involve the federal government, but support, or are supported by, actions that depend on federal involvement or leadership. By indicating its own priorities, the federal government can increase stakeholder confidence that resources invested in industry-led actions with federal dependencies will result in productive outcomes.
