Terbine Opens Nationwide System of Public Agency IoT Data

By

In a recent release, Terbine announced that it has created a characterized and indexed list of open-source IoT data feeds from public agencies across the country, and made the feeds discoverable via a single, standardized interface.

The system is designed to speed up the process of locating machine-generated data feeds, which are particularly valuable in AI-based applications. Terbine reportedly is entering into pilots and use-cases with insurers, hedge funds and other financial services organizations, AI developers seeking “training data,” and various industry groups including the Intelligent Transportation Society of America.

Terbine’s offering can speed up the process of locating and accessing IoT feeds in areas such as characterizing flows of vehicles and pedestrians, power generation and usage, air quality monitoring, microclimate data, and many others. The number of feeds is growing continually and will enable new levels of automation for smart cities, testing and deploying fleets of ground and aerial autonomous vehicles, new offerings in fintech and insurtech, and much more. The current range of feeds can be browsed on www.terbine.io.

“Many public agencies and universities offer their machine-generated data openly via the Web, but there has been no standardized means to present the information. This leads to a cacaphony of search results when seeking sources of physical-world data. In particular, this is a growing problem for training artificial intelligence-based traffic management and autonomous vehicles,” said David Knight, Founder and CEO, Terbine. “We’ve solved it by corraling of all the feeds into one comprehensive system, and providing a uniform means to describe them. The result is that both human and AI users can discover what they require rapidly and with confidence in the source and known data quality, which is critical to the success of AI and robotic process automation.”

Benefits to Corporations and the Public Good
Commercial organizations can join via subscriptions accessible via a web interface, or through Terbine’s APIs. In support of research and societal benefit, public agencies and not-for-profit research institutions are invited to use the Terbine system without an access fee, and to link their open source sensor data feeds into the system.


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Expo, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
