Japan, Germany team on Internet of Things standards

TOKYO -- Japan and Germany will join hands in creating international standards for Internet of Things technology, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Tuesday.

     Japan will "work toward establishing international standards together with Germany, a country that also has a strong manufacturing industry," Abe said in a public-private forum on investment. By 2020, Japan aims to have advanced systems at 50 locations that let companies and factories share data collected through sensors, he said.
