Terbine Opens World's Largest System of IoT Data to Smart City Market
Terbine has announced that it is opening its enormous system of IoT data feeds to organizations involved with smart city research and pilot projects. Created over an intensive multi-year process, the Terbine Exchange now offers sensor data sources that include electricity, water, wastewater, air quality, vehicular counts and movements from land/air/sea and many others.
“Much of the focus with smart cities projects thus far has been on relatively closed systems,” stated David Knight, Terbine CEO. “Bringing the data generated from the actual infrastructural elements found within and around municipalities into a single cohesive system, makes it discoverable and usable to researchers and project implementors alike.”
Access to Terbine is being offered to qualifying organizations at no charge for an initial six months, after which a subscription model will be implemented for commercial entities. Academic and non-profit institutions can continue at no cost.
Global Public Infrastructure Sensor Data, In One System
Prior to Terbine, analysts, engineers and planners for smart city projects had to search for data feeds, create accounts with each provider and learn access methods for each source. This often required writing software to link with those feeds. Terbine offers businesses, government agencies and academia alike a unified, single-access system that eliminates the need for users to set up thousands of individual data retrieval accounts. The myriad public agency feeds are strongly characterized and made available through one interface, usable by both AIs and individual users.
