This paper surveys a variety of global public policy challenges arising from widespread adoption of cyber-physical systems, or "Internet of Things" technologies. Contrary to common understandings, which see cyber-physical systems as relevant primarily for consumer applications and local infrastructure, we argue that these technologies create important global policy and global governance considerations.
